Zoning Letters & Compliance Certificates

Zoning Letter

A Zoning Letter is a letter that confirms the zoning district of a property per the RM’s Zoning Bylaw No. 2019-20. It is intended to inform interested parties (i.e. property owner, property purchaser, real estate agent, lawyer, or lending institution) of the associated zoning district for an individual property. A Zoning Letter is not a Zoning Compliance Certificate since no Real Property Report is submitted for review to confirm compliance with development standards. For more information on Zoning Compliance Certificates, please read the section titled 'Zoning Compliance Certificate' below.
