The Rural Municipality of Corman Park is poised to adopt a new Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw which would change the permitted uses of the land in rural neighborhoods.
The plan designates new zoning in pockets around the municipality that includes commercial, industrial, areas for urban growth, and environmental and natural resource areas. In the case of Conservation Zoning, farming is a discretionary use and that means, farmers would have to apply for permission from the RM to farm.
Permitted uses include wildlife habitats and refuge, historical and archaeological sites, municipal facilities, and public utilities.
The Valley People Association, an organization representing ratepayers on the southwest side of Saskatoon, a proposed Conservation Zone, are holding a public meeting tonight at Merrill School at 7 to talk about the implications of the community plan.
The Corman Park Council has already given first reading to the new bylaw, it's in the public hearing stage, and once it's adopted there's no appeal process. [sv sept 4 2012]
