Come and learn about about secondary suites (secondary dwelling units) in the MD.
Free cookies and coffee.


The MD of Foothills is holding public engagement opportunities to see if the MD residents support accommodating secondary dwelling units in the municipality.

Secondary dwelling units are often referred to as secondary suites, accessory dwelling units, garden suites, mother in law suites, etc.  This type of use can be found in a number of different forms.  The MD wants to explore this topic in detail.

As they become more popular and commonly available in other areas, M.D. staff members are increasingly receiving inquiries on Secondary dwelling units.  Our Land Use Bylaw does not currently allow for this use, however we acknowledge that secondary dwelling units are being built regardless of the Land Use Bylaw.
