In 2018, Council approved a municipal budget for a planning project to update the Land Use Bylaw and develop a Community Design Guidelines document. The Planning and Development Department asked Dillon Consulting to assist with this project, who assembled a team of planning, environmental, municipal engineering and transportation professionals with a depth of experience in planning for municipalities across Canada.
There are two significant deliverables for this project:
- The updated Land Use Bylaw. The Land Use Bylaw directs the town’s form and use, and though most of the Bylaw remains unchanged, the Town is modernizing key regulations to account for community changes, suggestions, challenges, and aspirations.

“The Town of Fox Creek is a community that presents supportive environment to its citizens through building complete, accessible, and livable neighbourhoods, that commits to sustainable development and diversified economic base, and that actively engages its citizens in the planning decisions.”
- Community Design Guidelines document creation. The Guidelines elaborate and expand the design vision for the Town of Fox Creek Municipal Development Plan about the physical evolution of the town while providing concise regulations to guide growth and change.
