Alberta RV Park Plan Faces Lengthy Wait
Alberta’s Lacombe County likely faces a lengthy wait to get a decision on an appeal launched by Sunbreaker Cove residents to stop a proposed RV resort nearby, the Red Deer Advocate reported last week.
“I think we’re probably waiting another three to six months,” county commissioner Terry Hager said Thursday (Oct. 14).
A three-day hearing was held by the Municipal Government Board at the Lacombe Memorial Center last month to review an appeal of the county’s decision to rezone 148 acres near the summer village for the 500-lot Skyy Country Golf and RV Resort.
Hager said the hearing was not formerly closed after three days to give the board more time to review the information presented. Once the hearing is formerly closed, the board has 30 days to make a decision.
The summer village argued in its appeal of the county’s November 2009 decision to rezone land for the RV resort that local facilities are already operating at peak and the development would “cause gross overcrowding and may or is likely to create dangerous situations.”
Developers want to build about 450 condominium lots, about 50 daily rental spots, a nine-hole par-three golf course, small water park and recreation area on a site near Sunbreaker Cove.
It would be developed in four phases.
