The Land and Property Rights Tribunal (Tribunal) will conduct a public hearing respecting an application by the Summer Village of Poplar Bay (SV) to annex territory from the County of Wetaskiwin No. 10 (County). The hearing is scheduled as follows:
- DATE: Friday, June 23, 2023
- TIME: 10:00 AM
- LOCATION: This hearing will be conducted via WebEx
The proposed annexation area involves approximately 2.2 hectares hectares (5.4 acres) of land. The application states that the proposed annexation will provide the SV with land for residential development.
Although the two municipalities have negotiated an agreement, objections to the proposed annexation require the Tribunal to conduct a public hearing. The public hearing process will allow the Tribunal to receive information and evidence from interested parties about this matter. After considering the submissions from all parties, the Tribunal will make an annexation recommendation to the Minister of Municipal Affairs.
A hard copy of the annexation application can be viewed at both the SV and the County municipal offices during normal business hours. Information about the proposed annexation can also be found on the SV' s website at https://poplarbay.ca/.
If you wish to participate in the hearing and/or want to make an oral submission to the Tribunal during the proceedings, please register with the Tribunal office by 12:00 noon on Thursday, June 15, 2023. Written submissions pertaining to the hearing should be received by the Tribunal no later than 12:00 noon on Thursday, June 15, 2023. Copies of all written submissions received by the Tribunal will be forwarded to the SV and the County prior to the hearing and may be made available to the public.
Written objections to the proposed annexation should be sent to the Tribunal Case Manager at the address below. For more information about the annexation process, please contact:
