Zoning provides regulation for various kinds of activities in the community, describing what is acceptable, densities, location, etc. This is intended to prevent incompatible activities from occurring next to each other and conflicting. Zoning is also used to support and preserve the character of a community. Zoning is a collaborative process, created through the voices and input of community members at the same time as the Official Community Plan. Though a zoning bylaw is not written in stone, it can be changed. This is a lengthy process in which a rezoning application must be submitted, deliberated by the community and Council, and decided on. Applications for rezoning must be proven justifiable to fit within the character of the community and in its best interest.
