The Town of High River made some changes around the land use bylaws for the Highwood Ranch development at their last Council meeting Monday, January 8.

Mayor Craig Snodgrass says they've brought the development into line with their flood mitigation plan as part of the neighbourhood outline plan.

"I'm totally OK with where the NOP is, they've done a great job in aligning the floodway mapping with our whole mitigation program. We've moved that whole development back after the flood. So, it's out of the flood zone, the basements are at the elevations of the 2013 flood, plus a metre free board."

Snodgrass says the Province will be coming out with new flood maps this month, which he says will make planning in High River a whole lot easier.
