Stettler county issues stop-work order to Paradise Shores

The County of Stettler says its municipal planning commission has issued a stop-work order to the controversial Paradise Shores RV Resort.

It has ordered the developer to stop construction and remove RVs until compliance is achieved.

It says the decision was made at a special meeting Friday.

The county, in a news release, says it conducted a site inspection May 2. It says it has concerns that development permit requirements for the 168-site project have not been met.

Paradise Shores was proposed as a 1,000-stall facility, complete with a water park and other amenities, on Baffalo Like, but was ruled to violate density requirements.

The Advocate has sought comment from the developer.

“Today, my husband and I had to tell our seven-year-old that we probably wouldn’t be able to use our trailer this year,” said one online reader who posted her thoughts.

“Do you know how hard it is to explain that to a little person who doesn’t understand the politics?”
