Developeable areas are those arts of the community where services such as water and sewer exist, or could easily be extended, to permit development. These areas exclude any lands designated as sensitive areas. The developable areas map outlines where it is possible and desirable to develop.
The map was created by removing all areas considered to be sensitive from the land and deemed to be serviceable. Areas that are considered developable are parts of the community that are services (or could easily be serviced) and are not sensitive.
This ma serves as the basis for determining appropriate locations for new infrastructure, housing and community projects.
