• Development Permits may be required for all your construction projects. We want to assist you in taking the proper precautions and follow Land Use Bylaw 2018-07 to ensure you meet all requirements and do not encroach on your neighbour’s/Acme property, failure to get the proper permits may result in a stop order, or tear down. We will keep a copy of the permit in our files to protect you down the road. We also recommend you check online at Palliser Web Maps, this is a user friendly way to identify your property lines and it will show you an actual image of your property. Remember - Call before you dig. Alberta 1st Call!

• With all the rain we’ve incurred, grass and weeds have grown quickly. Please ensure you take care of your yards by mowing, weed whacking and clearing grass off sidewalks (do not sweep onto roads it will clog the storm gutters and create more overland drainage issues). We all have to pitch in when needed and keep Acme looking nice.
