Poplar Bay annexation met requirements: County

Summer village request met previous agreement requirements

The County of Wetaskiwin has granted an annexation request from the Summer Village of Polar Bay as per an intermunicipal development agreement signed in 2013.

At their regular council meeting June 6, councilors heard a report from county CAO Rod Hawken describing the request.

“On June 3rd, 2019 a letter was received from the Summer Village of Poplar Bay as notice of proposed Annexation of a portion of NW 28-46-1-W5M, Title #092 350 213,” stated Hawken in his memo.

“The reason for the application was the landowner wishes to have municipal sanitary sewer connection and wishes to subdivide a portion the of property to build a home with access from 2nd Street onto Poplar Bay Drive within the Summer Village of Poplar Bay.

“A public meeting will be held Wednesday, June 26th, 2019 at the Municipal Office of the Summer Village of Poplar Bay located at 605-2 nd Avenue, in the Summer Village of MaMeO Beach to discuss the proposal. Written submissions must be received by the Summer Village of Poplar Bay by Wednesday, July 10th, 2019.

“The County of Wetaskiwin has a signed Intermunicipal Development Agreement (IDP) between the Summer Villages of Poplar Bay, Crystal Springs, Grandview and Norris Beach.

“In accordance with “Annexation Section 30 states in part: The County agrees not to contest annexation applications made by the Summer Village part if: a. For lots that are already subdivided the lot or lots have legal access to the Summer Village road; b. For un-subdivided land a. The land is the subject of an application to subdivide into two or more lots; and b. The lot or lots have legal access to the Summer Village road….” The application meets the requirements of the IDP; therefore, the County of Wetaskiwin has no issues with the proposed application.”

As Poplar Bay’s request met the requirements of the IDP, county councilors had no problem with it.
