Private Airstrips

The County is efforting to identify any private airstrips within the County boundaries after the recent Council meeting where Land Use Bylaw (LUB) regulations and aeronautics were discussed.  In December, County resident and pilot Gerard Fetaz and his wife Donna presented the County with a request to consider the impacts of land use regulations surrounding rural grass airstrips.  Thanks to the Fetaz’s and their dedication to this industry, the County is wanting to hear from any landowners/pilots that may have a grass airstrip that may be unknown to the County.  In an upcoming review of the LUB there will be engagement and feedback sought from those with private airstrips over aeronautical issues.  Aeronautics in Canada are regulated by the Federal Gov’t through the ministry of Transport Canada, however the County may play a lesser role in looking at neighbouring land use regulations where permissible.  We thank anyone in advance for their information submitted.
