New Lacombe community standards bylaw public input opportunity

The City is seeking public feedback on how the proposed bylaw may affect you

The City of Lacombe is seeking public input into the proposed Community Standards Bylaw #468, which establishes regulations on how residents and businesses conduct themselves in public.

The new proposed bylaw will regulate property maintenance, garage sales, light pollution, littering, excessive idling, noise and more. It will replace Nuisance Bylaw #326 and the current Community Standards Bylaw #372.

To view the proposed Bylaw #468, go to

“A municipal bylaw requires three readings in order to be adopted,” said Director of Corporate Services Diane Piche. “Council recently passed first reading of the proposed bylaw. Before proceeding with second and third readings, Council would like businesses and residents to provide input regarding any impacts this new bylaw might have on their activities.”

The City is seeking public feedback on how the proposed bylaw may affect you, and for suggestions for improvement.

Your feedback is important, and may affect changes to the bylaw.

Please visit to take the survey, available from April 3 to April 30, 2019.

The survey results will be presented to Council for review and discussion in May 2019, and shared with the public.
