The Rural Bridesville Land Use Plan is being developed and we would like your input.

Below is a tab called Places. Here you will see an outline of the Plan Area. There are pins you can add to the map to indicate important places in the Rural Bridesville area, such as important heritage sites you would like to see recognized. You can also identify areas that you would like to see identified for parks, conservation areas, or recreation trails.

We have a few parks and recreation areas identified already on Map 10 included with the draft plan. This can be seen in the document library on the right hand side of the page.

You can find a copy of the Draft Plan in the Document Library along with Land Use and Zoning Maps. There are also paper copies of the Draft Plan and Maps at the Riverside Centre in Rock Creek if you would like to view them in that format.


Planning helps a community influence how development occurs. Part of the plan outlines a community vision and policies. Another part sets out permitted and prohibited lands uses and minimum lot sizes for subdivision. This helps influence what can happen where on a landscape.

Planning began in the area with the Bridesville Townsite Land Use Plan. The townsite plan set out land use designations and zoning for the lots in Bridesville. After the townsite plan came out in 2012, community members expressed interest in planning in the rural areas as well. A copy of the Townsite plan is available in the Document Library.


An engagement summary including all comments from this site, in-person community meetings and other communications with staff will be prepared and will be considered during any decision making process concerning this plan.


Please note: a few things have been moved around on the page. The Places tool was brought to the main page to encourage community members to place pins with labels in areas that should be recognized in the plan for their importance to the area's history and heritage. Also, the same can be done to identify areas where parks for recreation or conservation could be considered either in this plan or for future consideration.

If you're looking for further information about the plan or process, post a question in the Q&A and it will be answered by RDKB staff.

The Guestbook tool is still available to post comments as a separate tab next to the Questions and Places tools. Under the Guestbook, you can read comments posted by other participants and post comments.

Rural Bridesville Land Use Plan Area

over 2 years

The area for the land use plan is shown on the map in pink, adjacent to the Mount Baldy Plan Area, shown in purple. 

A few points have been added showing where some heritage sites are located around the Rural Bridesville Plan Area. If you think there are others that should be recognized in the plan, please add a point and label it!

The same can be done for recreation areas, parks, trails and areas for conservation. These could be areas recognized as parks in the future or included in protected areas or trail networks.
