Illustrated: The Appeal Process
[Click to enlarge]
The Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) is a Quasi-Judicial Board; which means the meetings are conducted in a court like manner. Each municipality has an SDAB that hears appeals from individuals who have been affected by decisions of municipal development authorities. The SDAB makes decisions on these appeals in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Government Act, statutory plans (Municipal Development Plan, Area Structure Plans and Land-Use Bylaw), as well as Provincial and Council policies. SDAB decisions shape the community and affect the lives of developers, neighbours, citizens and businesses. It is important that the public have confidence in the quality of these decisions and the decision-making process.
Meetings are held every three weeks on a Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chamber in the Jubilee Building at 9909 Franklin Avenue, Fort McMurray.
