During their regular meeting May 20, members of Sylvan Lake’s Municipal Planning Commission:

● approved a development permit to allow Chinook’s Edge School Division to locate four new prefabricated classrooms and one moved-in prefabricated washroom facility at C. P. Blakely School for a maximum of a four year period.

The buildings are to be placed to the rear of the school abutting the playground.

● passed a motion recommending town council approve a development permit for Sylvan Bay Resort Inc. to build a 124 person second storey open-air sundeck addition and an accessory building at the water slide property.

Among conditions were that hours of operation of the second storey patio be the same as Wild Rapids Waterslide facility (12-8 p.m. daily, weather permitting). This property is in the Lakeshore Direct Control District meaning town council is the final approving authority.

● passed a motion recommending town council approve a demolition permit for a cottage at 4414 50A Avenue to make way for plans for intensification of the area. The property is one of three side by side on which three bedroom row houses with one bedroom basement suites are planned. Each lot would also include a detached garage in the rear with two bedroom garage suite above. Council is the final approving authority since this property is in the Waterfront Direct Control District of the Land Use Bylaw.
