In a recent council meeting held on March 11, the Town Council of Redcliff made significant changes to the town’s Street Bylaw, known as Bylaw No. 1968/2024. The amendments were proposed to enhance safety measures and streamline maintenance regulations within the municipality.

One of the notable revisions includes the removal of sections related to “Shooting Range” and “Weapon” from the definitions section of the bylaw. This alteration reflects a shift in addressing firearm discharge regulations, indicating a more comprehensive approach to firearms management within the town.

Section 15, which previously outlined regulations concerning the discharge of weapons within the town limits, has been removed. This move is part of a larger effort by the council to reevaluate and refine regulations regarding the discharge of weapons, ensuring alignment with provincial and federal laws while maintaining public safety.

Another significant amendment pertains to the protection and maintenance of sidewalks. Sections 20(b) and 20(c) now explicitly include provisions for the removal of “dirt, debris, or other obstructions” from sidewalks, emphasizing the importance of ensuring pedestrian safety and accessibility throughout the town.

The penalty section of Schedule A has been updated to reflect the changes in regulations. Penalties for offenses such as failure to remove snow, ice, dirt, debris, or other obstructions from sidewalks have been clearly defined, reinforcing accountability and compliance with the revised bylaw.

These amendments outline the council’s commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of Redcliff residents. They also are promoting responsible stewardship of public infrastructure. With the revised Street Bylaw in place, the Town aims to foster a more orderly and secure environment for all community members.
