The lots of Serenity Bay are being rezoned to lakeshore residential from country residential,following Wetaskiwin county council’s approval at its Sept. 15 meeting.

Owners of nine lots in the bay requested lakeshore residential zoning earlier this year but councildecided to hold off on a decision until four other unaccounted for lot owners could be contactedfor input.

Registered letters were sent to those four lot owners to no avail. “Unfortunately we did not getany communication back from those landowners,” said David Blades, director of planning andeconomic development.

One of the four remaining lot owners spoke during the meeting, stating there were noobjections.

“This makes sense to me. I would give it first reading,” said Coun. Larry McKeever. All threereadings passed unanimously.
