Slave Lake town council is keen to find out what residents think about the idea of an RV park being located on the Sunset Place lot on the southwest side of town. This is one of the emergency housing sites developed after the 2011 wildfire disaster by the provincial government.
The site isn’t ready yet; but the town expects the trailers to be gone and the shallow services to be removed this year. However, the proponent of the RV park hopes to be able to use those services, as mayor Tyler Warman notes in his column this week on Page 11 of this issue of The Leader.
In its news release last week seeking public feedback on the matter, the town didn’t exactly say it wanted to proceed, but the tone was fairly gung-ho.
“This site has excellent access to the highway, shopping, and is reasonably close to the boat launch and beach,” it said. “This site can not be used for residential units with basements, but could be used for above ground dwellings, as the area has a high water table.”
Sunset Place is located on 6th Ave. SW, across the street from Fournier Place.
