The Development Permit (DP) Committee is still in negotiations and continues to meet to debate, discuss and determine the DP issues. The proposed Development Permit which was released from the DP Committee to our Council and the public (linked below), is now being revised to further address issued identified.
Please be assured we are working very hard to ensure all of the concerns which have been brought forward are being considered at length. The Development Permit Committee is planning to meet again on Monday, June 11 for another of these mentioned discussions.
The Development Permit Committee meetings are not public meetings and not advertised. They are an important part of this process which allows committee members to debate and make changes and recommendations which the committee feels best represents our County as a whole. The recommendations, which come from this committee, are drawn into the proposed Development Permit, to be considered by our whole County Council and addressed through them at the Municipal Planning Commission level. Once the DP Committee is finished tweaking the proposed Development Permit, the public, and our entire County Council will receive and be able to review the revised document here.
On Wednesday, June 13 the County of Stettler No. 6 will hold our Regularly Scheduled Council Meeting. On June 13, Council will consider third reading of the Area Structure Plan and third reading of the Rezoning Bylaw for Paradise Shores, which is a Council function. The reason third reading of the Bylaws will be on this agenda, is that the County’s legal advisors recommended the Municipal Planning Commission should not consider issuing Development Permits on property which has not already been rezoned, so this would be the proper process for County Council to follow.
The proposed Development Permit however, cannot be considered or be issued at a Council Meeting. The Development Permit must be considered and/or issued by the Municipal Planning Committee. The next Regularly Scheduled Municipal Planning Commission Meeting is Wednesday, June 27.
It is not this Council’s intention to rush this process, and we will continue to carefully follow our regular process. There are many complicated and important factors to be considered, not the least is our desire to allow ourselves, and the public who is very invested in the outcome and the process, the proper time to review proposed conditions as they unroll.
We expect to be able to release the revised proposed Development Permit for Paradise Shores on or about Wednesday, June 13, allowing two weeks for the Municipal Planning Commission, and the public to carefully review.
