Proposed Development by Vivcor Holdings (campground)

January 5, 2022

RE: HUMMOCKY RV RESORT (Campground) – SE 34-55-1-W5M (See Map) (the “Lands”).

History:

May 2021: Sunrise Beach (SRB) Council and Administration met with the developer of the proposed Campground to discuss a temporary access to the Lands.   Temporary access was granted by the previous Council.

September 28, 2021 SRB Administration and Council in receipt from Lac Ste. Anne County (LSAC) of a subdivision application to separate the Lands (subdivide) with the boundary being Shedden Drive.   SRB response to the subdivision referral addressed the location of access points to the subdivision and the standards for those accesses.   Such met the requirements of the Subdivision Regulation for legal and physical access to the parcels; where the accesses to these agricultural lands are being located and constructed to SRB’s request.   LSAC conditionally approved the subdivision in October 2021.

December 2021 Notice of “Open House” with respect to a proposed Campground upon the Lands in the local paper, with the open house scheduled for Thursday, January 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm (Online).   This “Open House” is in support of the developers proposed Area Structure Plan and Re-districting application.

Process:

The proposed development is a Campground – Major which is neither a Permitted, nor a Discretionary, Use within the current Agriculture 2 (AG2) Land Use District under the LSAC Land Use Bylaw.   The first steps for the developer of the Lands to allow for a Campground is for them to prepare an Area Structure Plan and make application for the Lands to be re-districted to Commercial Recreation (CREC) District, where such use is Discretionary.

The LSAC Land Use Bylaw, Section 3.5 requires an Open House as a prerequisite for application for such a development, the Open House scheduled for January 6, 2022 is being held to that end.

Subsequently we are presuming the developer will be submitting to LSAC formal application for approval of their Area Structure Plan and Re-Districting application.   This is a formal process requiring notice to affected parties (adjacent landowners and other stakeholders (ex. AB Environment, AB Transportation, Utility Companies etc) and a Public Hearing on the amending Bylaws.   LSAC Council must certainly heed all submissions and presentations made at the Public Hearing in making their decision to pass, or not pass, the requisite bylaw amendments.   There is no appeal (except at the ballot box) of the decision of LSAC Council on these bylaw amendments.   Should these bylaws fail to be passed by LSAC Council, the project may not proceed.   The developer may reapply.

Should the Bylaw amendments be passed by LSAC Council, the next step for the developer is to make application for development permit for the Campground.   As Campground is a Discretionary Use, LSAC’s Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) is the development authority.   Where the MPC would be inclined to approve the application, upon referral to and negotiation with SRB, as part of the Developers Agreement, a Road Use Agreement with SRB would / should be put in place.   We do have an Inter-municipal Collaboration Framework in place with LSAC, and it would be reasonable to expect that SRB would be able to negotiate a Road Use Agreement for this development.

The decision of MPC for LSAC may be appealed by SRB or any affected party to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board of LSAC.

CRIME PREVENTION

This is a fan out message from the Stony Plain and District Crime Prevention Association

Sadly in recent weeks several fire departments in the province, and their communities, have been the subject of fraudulent fundraising activities.  Individuals have been calling residents of the communities and identifying themselves as a member of the local fire department. The caller would then advise the resident that they were conducting fundraising efforts for the fire department and seeking cash donations.  In all reported instances, the fire departments mentioned were not conducting any fundraising and they do not raise funds in this manner.  The fire departments involved have notified the RCMP and/or Municipal Police and I understand investigations are ongoing.

As this is not an isolated situation the Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) believes that passing this notice along to all fire departments in the province may provide the opportunity for you to create some community awareness of the situation and prevent your residents, and your good name, from being exploited.  The OFC would also remind fire departments that if you will be conducting any fund raising actives you should ensure that you develop messaging to disseminate in advance within your community which creates awareness of those activities for your residents and local media. This messaging should provide contact information so that anyone having any questions or concerns can contact and discuss them with fire department officials.

The same advice also applies to Search and Rescue Groups within Alberta.

The purpose of this message is to make residents aware of potential suspicious activity in their area.  Please be aware of your surroundings and report suspicious vehicles and or people immediately.

Stony Plain/Spruce Grove RCMP remind you not to make it easy for thieves. Ensure your vehicle doors are locked and valuable items are removed.

The Spruce Grove / Stony Plain Drug Section Information Tip Line is 780-968-7212.  Anyone with drug information is asked to call and leave a message.

If you have any information on this crime please contact the Stony Plain RCMP at
