The Wizard Lake Area Structure Plan is a long range plan with a 25-year planning horizon. It provides a policy framework to manage growth and land uses around the lake using the current knowledge of the lake, the surrounding watershed and recreational demand. Best practices are identified in the plan to assist land owners and the County to make long term land use decisions. This plan was adopted in July, 2010.
In order to implement the plan, certain lands had to be redistricted. A public hearing was held as required under the Municipal Government Act to gather public input on a bylaw which would redistrict most of the land in the Wizard Lake ASP area from the Lake Watershed district to one of three proposed new districts. In September 2010, final reading was given to the bylaw amending the Land Use Bylaw.
