Stetter County continues to insist a development permit for the Paradise Shores RV Park is incomplete.

The county’s subdivision appeal board ruled Tuesday the application for the development of 318 campsites and RV stalls around Buffalo Lake is lacking.

“There was not enough information to take to the municipal planning commission, so the permit was sent back to the developer,” said communications director Niki Thorsteinsson.

“The developer disagreed and thought it was complete enough, so appealed the decision.”

The appeal board hearing only heard arguments in relation to the completeness, or incompleteness, of the application, and was primarily a discussion between Paradise Shores owner Dave Hamm and the county’s development authority.

The original development permit from Paradise Shores was comprised of a plan to create recreation facilities and activities on approximately 83 acres of land.

“Our timeline, having been forced off schedule due to the unfortunate decision … needs to be addressed this camping season,” Hamm had stated in a letter enclosed in the development permit application.

“The resort’s 221 families who have chosen Stettler County and Buffalo Lake as their preferred destination for family fun for decades to come, need clear signals and definite action in order to show that this project is not going away.”

In May, the county issued a stop-work order over health and safety concerns at existing leases. The county said 41 conditions had to be met.
