Zoning Committee

The Zoning Committee was established in 1961 through the Zoning Bylaw (#2135). The Committee was an agent of City Council which acted in making administrative decisions regarding the uses of land and buildings in compliance with the provisions of the Zoning Bylaw. One function of the Committee was to hear appeals to decisions made by administration. The Committee was active only a few years: in 1966 a revised version of the Zoning Bylaw no longer included the Zoning Committee, and as early as 1963 it appears that City Council was responsible for hearing appeals.

This series contains a register of decisions to appeals heard by the Zoning Committee between November 1961 and August 1963, and by City Council between August 1963 and January 1968.

Zoning Appeal Board

While zoning appeals were first mentioned in 1931 (Bylaw 8-1931), it wasn’t until 1933 that the Zoning Appeal Board was formally established through Zoning Bylaw 26-1933. The Board consisted of five members of the public, appointed by Council, including a member of the Alberta Architects Association, a member of the Alberta Land Surveyors Association, and a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Association. The Board heard appeals from zoning decisions made by the Building Inspector. The Board was governed by the Zoning Bylaw, but in certain circumstances could make recommendations to Council for alterations to zoning boundaries. The Zoning Appeal Board operated until 1950, when the Interim Development Bylaw (Bylaw 1339) was created, which established the Interim Development Appeal Board, which in turn took appeals from any decision made by the Interim Development Officer, including issues of zoning.
