The Town of Creston is a thriving community within a unique natural setting that is attractive to visitors and new residents seeking amenity and lifestyle opportunities. The population is mature, with seniors comprising more than a third of the Town’s residents. The role of the Development Services Department is to manage growth and change for the benefit of the Town’s citizens, and to advise and assist Council in setting the stage for future development.
The department handles the implementation as well as the review and updating of the Official Community Plan. The department oversees all development including the construction and demolition of buildings, subdivision approval, and zoning bylaw amendments. Bylaw enforcement, sign permits, and business licensing are also administered through Development Services.
