During their regular meeting Monday night, Sylvan Lake councillors:

• approved demolition permits for two properties in the Waterfront Direct Control District.

The first was for a cabin constructed in 1930 at 4103 50A Avenue. No new development is planned at this time.

The second was for a cabin which was partially destroyed by fire, at 5028 48 Street. No new development is planned at this location either.

• approved an extension to October 30, 2012 for the first phase of the Beacon Hill subdivision.

“Once conditional approval was obtained the subdivisions was split into smaller phases in response to changing economic conditions,” according to information provided to councillors. “SL Development now wishes to proceed with registration of the last phase of the original approval but the one year time frame for endorsement had expired.”

The approval extended that time frame by one year.

Tim Schmidt, director of planning and development, told councillors Chinooks Edge School Division has recently shown interest in developing the school site for an elementary school.

• agreed to support a request from the City of Red Deer which is lobbying to have a new Central Alberta Regional Court House built on the site of the former RCMP building since the current court house is “very congested” and “the lack of court space is having a severe impact on the ability of cases to be heard in a timely fashion”.

• accepted for information draft land use bylaws from the summer villages of Norglenwold, Half Moon Bay, Jarvis Bay and Sunbreaker Cove.
