I'm currently the project manager of a Land Use Bylaw (Zoning Ordinance) review that is going forward to Council next month. One of the more controversial requests from the development community is to allow for smaller single detached family lots. I've done a survey of Alberta municipalities already, and the lot widths/frontages are incredibly small compared to what I remember lot sizes being in the States.
So more out of curiosity than anything, I'd love to poll my fellow Cyburbians to find out the following:
1) What is the minimum lot width/frontage requirement for your typical single family detached lot?
2) What is the type of community and size (i.e. suburb w/ 50,000 persons, large city with 1M persons, rural county, etc.)
3) When were the regulations last updated?
My answers (just in case you are interested):
1) 11.5 m/38 ft (contemplating as low as 10 m/33 ft, developers want 8.6 m/28.2 ft)
2) Suburb of 55,000
