The County of Wetaskiwin council is holding a second public hearing for a handful of lots yet to be rezoned lake shore residential in a Serenity Bay subdivision.

Parcel owners representing nine lots currently zoned country residential while most in the subdivision are lake shore residential attended the public hearing on June 9, complaining they had not been consulted or notified when the rezone was made, leaving them behind.

However, lot owners for another four parcels also zoned country residential have not been in contact with the county yet regarding the matter. In the name of fair play Coun. Garry Dearing wanted to make sure everyone was contacted this time before any more decisions were made. “Just by delaying it a month isn’t going to change anything.”

Residents of Serenity Bay who attended the public hearing were unhappy they had been left out when most of the subdivision was rezoned and feel they should have the same rights and privileges as their neighbours.

“That’s really what we’re asking for,” said lot owner Meritt Shank.
