CLEAR HILLS COUNTY

"CLEARLY AN AREA OF OPPORTUNITY"

Home Council Bylaws & Policies Community Corporate Services Public Works Staff Current Events Business Directory Recreation Document Library


Located in the beautiful Peace Region of north western Alberta, along the British Columbia border, Clear Hills County offers truly breathtaking scenery, and an opportunity to experience an abundance of outdoor recreational pursuits. The rugged wilderness of the northern half of the County is bordered against fertile agricultural lands that have been opened up for farming, and small pockets of urban development in the more southern regions. The mighty Peace River, forming part of the southern boundary of the County, and the Clear Hills to the north, are natural features that contribute to the charm and appeal of the county.

The County, as a local rural government, provides many services to its ratepayers. These include road construction and maintenance, solid waste management facilities, water and wastewater services, development control, agricultural equipment rentals, weed inspection, and roadside weed and brush control.

There will be a public hearing for the Clear Hills County Land Use Bylaw Number 189-16 on August 16, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the Clear Hills County Council Chambers at the County Administration building located at 313 Alberta Avenue in Worsley, Alberta. This bylaw is intended to replace the existing land use bylaw number 107-08 that was adopted in 2008 and includes all amendments that have been made to that bylaw since then.

A copy of the proposed bylaw is available here or at the county administration building in Worsley. Due to the extreme size of the document it is not available by fax or email.

Disaster and emergencies can strike anytime, anywhere. If one happened today, what would you do and who would you depend on for the next 72 hours to stay safe? Emergency Preparedness Week is a national event coordinated in the first week of May every year by Public Safety Canada in collaboration with provincial and territorial governments and other partners. During Emergency Preparedness Week the Alberta Emergency Management Agency, in collaboration with municipalities across the province, encourages Albertans to be prepared to respond to the many different types of emergencies that can affect their lives.
