Alberta RV Park Development Closer to Reality
A concept plan for Skyy Country Golf and RV resort, which would see more than 500 lots created on the north eastern shore of Sylvan Lake in central Alberta, was approved by the county, along with third reading to rezoning the land the resort will be built on – but not before some last minute tweaking, according to The Lacombe (Alberta) Globe.
In an earlier draft plan of what the resort could end up looking like, 84 lots had been set aside for day use with 423 slated for condominium lots. But those were scrapped in the plan presented to the council, which laid out development plans for 515 lots, all to be considered condominium lots.
But doing away with day-use lots didn't sit well with some councilors.
"I am a little disappointed not to see the day-use area included in this concept, I thought those lots being included made the area unique," said Councilor Linda Landmark, and Councilor Cliff Soper said the exclusion of day-use lots reduced the public access.
It was proposed by the council that daily rental spots be put back into the concept plan, and council was recessed for a brief break to allow the administration to discuss altering plans with the developers.
An amendment to include day-use lots in the overall plan was passed successfully, along with the concept plan and final reading.
Skyy Country, to be built in four phases, will include a recreation area with tennis courts, a water park and a nine-hole golf course. Construction could begin next year and the park could be among the first RV resorts claiming land around the lakes.
