MOST COVERED STORY

The issue most reported on in the Stettler Independent in 2018 was Paradise Shores RV Resort along Buffalo Lake.

Paradise Shores

In January the County of Stettler received a permit application from RV Sites Canada to rezone and develop an area located between Buffalo View Estates and the Summer Village of White Sands. The proposal was for 800 RV lots and about 370 stalls for Phase One.

The summer villages of Rochon and White Sands filed a dispute against the development. In addition, both the County of Lacombe and Camrose filed letters of concern over the proposed RV park. A petition by a grassroots group of county ratepayers against the developed collected about 1,000 signatures. They opposed the size, scope, density, and land use planning of the RV park.

The summer villages later dropped their dispute after they agreed to a reduced density of 750 RV stalls at the Paradise Shores development.

In March, about 400 people attended a public hearing in Stettler for the proposed high-density RV development. Twenty people spoke against. Only the developer spoke in favour. The county received 32 letters of support and 121 submissions against. Opponents say the development will destroy their peaceful area, create safety issues and lower their property values.

In June Stettler County approved their development permit application for the proposed 800 RV site project on 110 acres of land.

About 80 people attended Stettler County’s Subdivision Development Appeal Board (SDAB) merit hearing Aug. 16 to give opponents of the development one last chance to appeal the development permit application the county approved in June. It was adjourned until Sept. 18-19. The SDAB closed the appeal hearing Oct. 24.

In November, the SDAB made its decision, reducing the size of the lots from 750 to 168.

In response, in November the developer of Paradise Shores filed an appeal with the Calgary Court of Appeal into the SDAB decision to slash the size of its development.

David Hamm filed the appeal citing lack of procedural fairness after the SDAB reduced the number from 750 to 168 sites last month. In his affidavit, Hamm said Paradise Shores “has already invested several million into the acquisition of the lands for the RV park the production of environmental and other reports and site preparation costs” and added that they will lose “half to two-thirds of the expected revenue from the loss of rentals of RV sites as a result of the reduction.”

TOWN AND COUNTY OF STETTLER TACKLE ARISING ISSUES

Marijuana legalization

• Smoking cannabis will only be allowed in private residences in the Town of Stettler.

During its regular meeting on Oct. 2 the Town of Stettler council voted in favour of banning smoking cannabis in public places.

• Stettler County council voted against a lenient cannabis bylaw in favour of more restrictive regulations. A smoking bylaw dealing with cannabis presented by administration was defeated. Instead, a revised and more restrictive amended bylaw proposed was passed. The amendment included a change in the definition of public space. The definition will be expanded to include streets, sidewalks, green spaces, walking trails and outdoor recreation areas. The current definition defines a public place as sports fields, recreation facilities and outdoor areas.

Sign, sign everywhere a sign

The issue of whether or not to allow signs along Hwy 12 and 56 through town has been an issue in Stettler for almost a decade and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.

In 2010 and 2014 looked at survey results. In 2010 and 2014 the majority – 86 percent and 81 percent respectively – were in favour of portable signs.

But the opinion of town residents seems to be shifting against allowing signs.

Stettler town council approved a bylaw re-designating land along Hwy 12 through town identifying it as parkland, meaning no portable or inflatable signs allowed from 5804 – 47 Ave. to 5100 – 47 Ave.

READ MORE: Portable signs a hot-button issue in Stettler for almost a decade. Majority speaking out now opposed to signs

The town had complaints that the signs may distract drivers. Council reviewed the bylaw after getting numerous complaints about the dozens of signs within the town’s boundaries.

An agricultural disaster area

• In October Stettler County declared the county an agricultural disaster area after seasonal dry conditions and bad weather have affected crops and delayed harvest. This not only affected grain farmers but also cattle producers.

Coun. James Nibourg brought the issue to council during their regular meeting Oct. 10. Coun. Nibourg said he had numerous ratepayers call him asking why Stettler County isn’t on Alberta Agriculture’s prescribed list of drought and flood regions. Being on the list allows farmers, through the Federal Livestock Tax Deferral program, to sell part of their breeding herd due to drought or flooding and defer a portion of the money to the next year. In addition, many farmers can’t get their crops off the field because they were under snow.

• On Oct. 31 the federal government stepped up and listed the county as a prescribed region for the Livestock Tax Deferral Provision, which means farmers can sell part of their breeding herd because of drought or flooding and defer a portion of the money to 2019. This reduces the producer’s tax burden. To defer income the herd has to be reduced by at least 15 percent.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY ABOUT AREA POLITICS

• The United Conservative Party (UCP) disqualified UCP Drumheller – Stettler candidate Todd Pawsey as a candidate for making jokes about transgender people, making extremely sexual/ sexist comments and calling Premier Rachel Notely a queen beyotch.

Pawsey said the UCP had access to his social media from the start of his nomination. He appealed but the Nominations Committee unanimously agreed not to hear the appeal.
