County working with Paradise Shores developers

Larry Clarke, Reeve for the County of Stettler and James Nibourg, chairman of the Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) met with Paradise Shores’ representatives earlier this week to discuss the current project status.

“We look forward to actively working towards a positive outcome with Paradise Shores’ developers, enabling them to fulfill the Subdivision & Development Appeal Board’s (SDAB) decision which allows 168 RV sites, once all of the conditions of the SDAB decision have been met,” said Nibourg. Paradise Shores has an appeal filed with the Court of Appeal, on the SDAB decision of Nov. 2, 2018 which reduced the allowable density of their site to 168 units.

The County of Stettler issued a Stop Order for the site in May. The Stop Order restricts day-use or overnight accommodation until the conditions of the SDAB decision have been met.

Both parties are working together towards resolving the issues.

“The developer will be notified prior to any action being taken in regards to the Stop Order,” added MPC Chairman Nibourg.

The developer may continue working on the site to bring the site up to compliance.

The County of Stettler reminds and encourages all parties involved that respectful communications are the key to effective engagement.
