Westerose landowner withdraws RV park application

Barry and Eileen Dahlseide withdrew their application citing changes made to the plan

An application to re-zone property in Westerose to accommodate an RV park has been withdrawn by the applicants Barry and Eileen Dahlseide at the County of Wetaskiwin Planning and Economic Development council meeting June 13.

The issue of third reading of the Dahlseide’s application was presented by Director of Planning and Development David Blades.

“At the May 17, 2019 Council for Planning and Development meeting, Council considered a Rezoning Application for Barry and Eileen Dahlseide to rezone approximately four (4) acres (1.62 hectares) within Lot 11, Block 1, Plan 8220880, NE 9-46-28-W4M from Rural Residential (RR) to Urban Commercial (UC),” stated Blades in his report.

“If rezoning is approved, the Applicant intends to operate a Recreational Vehicle (RV) Storage Business to have sixty-five (65) cold storage parking stalls. The property is located within the Hamlet of Westerose.” Blades also noted in his report that the Dahlseide application saw first and second reading passed May 17, but did not receive unanimous agreement to consider third reading (a requirement if all three readings of a bylaw are consider the same day it’s introduced), so the application had to be moved to June 13.

However, Blades stated the applicants decided to withdraw their application to re-zone for the RV park. “On June 2, 2019, Administration received correspondence from Barry and Eileen Dahlseide requesting to withdrawal their rezoning application due to the amendment to setbacks not allowing them in their opinion “to economically proceed with…[their] proposed development plans,” stated Blades in his report.

In their letter dated June 2, Barry and Eileen stated, “Please be advised that we wish to immediately withdraw our application for rezoning of the above captioned property.

“We are withdrawing our application due to the excessive setbacks proposed at the hearing held in the council chambers, county office on May 17. This excessive setback does not enable us to economically proceed with our proposed development plans.”

Assistant CAO Jeff Chipley stated the best approach for councilors would be to move third reading of the Dahlseide re-zoning and defeat it by vote, which is what councilors unanimously, did.
