DEVELOPMENT IN VULCAN

Both economically and substantially, the Town of Vulcan Development provides a gateway to many new businesses wanting to set foot onto the corporate stage. Set between the CPR tracks and Highway 23, the Industrial Park has a grand setting to provide a surplus of commodities for the Town and surrounding area.

With this comes a commercial sector that is both viable to the small and mid-size business structure. Located between Lethbridge and Calgary, the Town of Vulcan can be an entrance to business opportunities affordable to the professional entrepreneur.

The Town of Vulcan wants to set a benchmark as the hub of development for the County and area. With its branding plan in place, the Town is able to move forward with new ideas and initiatives to move the Town into not only an economic secure foundation, but to be the best technologically-advanced Town in Canada.

The inspiration and desire to obtain this development through colleges and government support opens a broad new area to bring Vulcan into innovative ways that will provide the business community a more efficient and quality resource to work from.

As municipalities expand and space becomes less available, Vulcan is continuing to create visible market growth in both sectors administratively and tangibly.

With a strong Chamber of Commerce www.vulcanchamber.ca   the Vulcan Business Development Society (VBDS) www.vulcanbusiness.ca  and the Vulcan Brand Innovation Team (VBIT) www.vbitvulcan.com  business within the community can find support and programs which can help get them started and achieve success through opportunities.

Residential development is also a major player within the boundaries of the Town. Currently, a large subdivision is underway and is surrounded by the Town's magnificent 18-hole golf course. Within the Town, quaint historic homes on large lots provide space, peace and tranquility.

The Town takes pride in preserving our vegetation, in particularly the large tree program and grooming. The Town continues to provide good infrastructure to support and maintain Town activity.

Communities in Bloom is an organization that takes extreme pride in sustaining the Town's floral program, and keeping the downtown core beautiful during the growing season.

So, if you're thinking of a new lifestyle and business change, consider the Town of Vulcan as your next opportunity.

BUSINESS INFO

LAND DEVELOPMENT (DEVELOPMENT PERMIT)

The Land Use By-law is a key tool used to regulate and control the use and development of all land and buildings in the Town of Vulcan. It governs the development permit approval process and all land use designation.

A Development Permit is required for most new construction and changes of land use. A development permit ensures that new development in the Town of Vulcan is well-suited to the surrounding area and meets the requirements of the Town's Land Use By-Law.

Most construction, signs and business licensing require a development permit.
When applying for a development permit, you will be required to complete a development permit application form. Your application will be reviewed. If a proposed use is listed as discretionary within the applicable land use district or a waiver beyond 10 per cent required, the application will be forwarded to the MPC (Municipal Planning Commission) for consideration.

Please note: If you are applying for a Development Permit that requires Municipal Planning Commission approval, the completed application form and required documentation must be received by the Development Officer two weeks prior to the MPC meeting. MPC meetings are held in Council Chambers the third Tuesday of each month.

PERMITS – BUILDING, GAS, PLUMBING & ELECTRICAL

Applications for building permits are acquired at the Town Office.

Once a completed building permit application is submitted to the Town Office, the application is forwarded to Superior Safety Codes for final approval and issuance. Inspections are carried out by Superior Safety Codes.

Gas, plumbing & electrical permits are issued out of the Town Office with Superior Safety Codes contracted by the Town of Vulcan for doing the appropriate inspections.
