Land Use Bylaw 02-2013 update
Town Council is keeping the Land Use Bylaw 02-2013 as a living document as promised.
The completely rewritten document was approved in 2013 knowing that the growth and changes within the Town as well as Alberta’s Economy can and will have an effect on the community.
The Town has initiated a review of the Land Use Bylaw 02-2013 to clean up some areas that need to be clarified and also to modernize and add to the uses within districts.
Vegreville visualizes itself as a progressive community that is open to the public’s views and opinions. You are more than welcome to send in your comments, opinions and/or concerns that you have with the current document. All of the submissions will be taken seriously and considered in this review.
Follow the updates on the Town’s website and social media to stay up to date on when we will be holding a Public Open House to unveil a Draft document.

CALLING ALL PASSIONATE YOUTH WHO ARE INTERESTED IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Vegreville & District Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) & the Vegreville Rotary Club have an exceptional opportunity for youth who are interested in making a change in their community and want to learn the skills needed to make it happen!
This new program is called Youth Making A Change (YMAC) and there are only 12 spots available! We are looking for youth in grades of 10-12 who are interested in partnering with others in the community and are passionate about making a difference. Members will be required to demonstrate a combination of experience and interests with the following topics: volunteerism, leadership, community development, and community engagement.
The Vegreville Rotary Club and Vegreville &District FCSS got together to create a program that elevates youth voices, and gives them the opportunity to contribute to community programming, while providing young people with a unique opportunity to be the drivers of their own ideas from conceptualization to implementation.
So what does this program look like? There are four components. Step 1 is to take part in interactive sessions which are designed to give youth the skills and tools they need to be successful. Step 2 is when youth are matched with a non-profit board to put their skills into practice. Step 3 brings the youth back together to address a community topic that is important to them. Step 4 allows YMAC members to blog about their experiences. The time requirement, per month, is up to 5 hours and the project runs from Oct 31 to June 5, 2017.
We all are to encourage a youth whom you feel would be perfect for this new and exciting opportunity.
