Public notice is hereby given that the Council of the Town of Balgonie intends to adopt a bylaw, under The Planning and Development Act, 2007, to amend Bylaw No. 374/2014, known as the Zoning Bylaw.
The proposed bylaw will include Ready to Move (RTM) homes as a discretionary use in the Residential Multiple Dwelling District (R2) and the Residential Mobile Home District (RMH) and rezone Lots 4, 5, and 6, Block 1, Plan 16960 from R2-Residential Multiple Dwelling District to C1-Town Centre Commercial District as shown on the map found on the Town of Balgonie’s website.
The reason for the bylaw is to:
- accommodate future proposals for RTMs;
- allow for a greater variety in housing options;
- correct a discrepancy in the zoning map; and
- clarify the regulations for accessory swimming pools.
Any person may inspect the bylaw at the Town of Balgonie Municipal Office Monday to Friday between 9:00 am to noon and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm excluding statutory holidays. Copies are available at cost at the Municipal Office.
Council will hold a public hearing to receive submissions on the proposed bylaw on June 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town of Balgonie Council Chambers. Council will also consider written submissions received at the hearing or delivered to the undersigned at the municipal office before the hearing. For further information, please contact the Municipal Office at 306-771-2284.
Issued at the Town of Balgonie, this 23rd day of May, 2019.

Starting this year we will be implementing 1 week lessons for each class! You will now have 4 weeks to choose from throughout the summer. Classes still meet the required Red Cross class duration time, students will just complete their course in the 1 week period.
Also, Lane Swim will now be Thursday mornings from 7:00 a.m.-8:00a.m. Aquasize will still be held Tuesday evenings at times to be determined. Please pass this information on to those you know wishing to register for lesson time.
Registration will be at the Balgonie Multiplex on Sunday May 26th from noon-2:00 p.m. Please ensure your 2019 registration form is completed.
There will be no phone registration. No post dated cheques accepted.
If you miss registration, you will have to go directly to the pool office to register. The pool will be opening for the season on June 8th, 2019.
This April, the Town of Balgonie will begin the curb side composting program.
Your cart will arrive April 4th, 2019 and the first pick up will be April 15th, 2019.
As with the other carts, please have them on the curb side on MONDAYS by 7:00 am.
This will be a weekly pick-up program from April until November, with a monthly pick-up in the winter months.
In case they get mixed up during a wind storm, we are also asking residents to help us out by using a black marker and writing your home address on the back of these bins as the serial numbers are recorded to your address.
Thank you for your support in our environmental efforts.
