According to Alberta Municipal Affairs, a Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) is a statutory body intended to perform an independent adjudicative function that hears complaints and functions like a court. It is an administrative board mandated by the Municipal Government Act and created by a municipality to carry our appropriate functions and procedures. The SDAB hears appeals from municipal subdivision and development authorities. SDAB decisions shape the community and affect the lives of developers, neighbours, citizens and businesses. It is important that the public have confidence in the quality of these decisions and the decision making process.
The Voyageur Park Improvement Committee will be a working, task-oriented committee which will be responsible to engage the community to gain a common focus for the project and provide recommendations to Council. The scope includes the geographic area of Voyageur Park only; it does not include the trail system beyond the park or Prospectors point (or any areas opposite the river from Devon). The committee can make decisions for Council approval on project direction, vision and outcomes. Please note that this is a volunteer non-honourarium position.
