News & Updates

Public Input Requested
The Summer Village of South View is currently part of a 3-component project along with 7 other municipalities.  One component is to adopt a Municipal Development Plan (MDP) which will be a mandatory requirement for all municipalities under the Modernized Municipal Government Act.  The Municipal Development Plan is a primary document that guides the future development and growth of the whole community. The MDP sets the vision on how to accommodate this growth responsibly and serves as an important decision-making tool for Council, administration and all stakeholders.  As a statutory plan required by the Alberta Municipal Government Act, the MDP provides direction for Council, administration, developers and builders, property-owners, residents and adjacent municipalities.   

An MDP will address several items, including:

-future land use
-future development
-municipal services 

Part of the process of creating and eventually adopting an MDP includes Public Consultation and Input.  ​Please see links below to engage in this Public Consultation Process:

Alberta Invasive Species Update

Encroachments onto Road Right of Ways & Use of Municipal Reserves
It is the responsibility of every property owner to understand and know where their property lines are.  If you are unsure of your property boundaries, it is your responsibility to have your lot surveyed.  If there happens to be items encroaching on Summer Village property they will need to be moved to within your property.

To facilitate park maintenance in the summer months and to ensure safety of all users during the winter months, boat hoists and piers etc. are required to be removed from all park reserve areas to private property.  Failure to do so may result in the Summer Village having the items removed at the owner’s expense.

We thank all residents in advance for your cooperation in this matter!

South View - Boat Launch
The Boat Launch in the Summer Village of South View is closed until further notice.  The Summer Village is in the process of obtaining permission from various government departments to extend the launch pad by approximately 21 feet.  As the boat launch currently sits, it is not usable.   We appreciate your patients and understanding as we work to get the launch in better working order. 

Fire Services
Please be advised that effective January 1st, 2016, the Summer Village of South View will be receiving its Fire Services from North West Fire Rescue instead of from Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services.  

North West Fire Rescue is an Onoway-based industrial fire service which will now be expanding into municipal fire services.

The Summer Village welcomes Dave Ives and his professional team to our municipal services operation.  

There will be no change or disruption in how you obtain a fire services response - you will still dial 9-1-1.

The Summer Village thanks Lac Ste. Anne County and the volunteer members of the County Fire Services for the years of service.

Only regular household waste is to be put into the bins!
Residents are not authorized to dispose of building/construction waste, barbeques, mattresses, bikes etc. into the Summer Village waste bins as these items are to be taken to the Highway 43 Waste Commission Regional Landfill Site located on highway 43 and RR35.  A reminder that grass clippings take up less room if they are removed from bags.  Unauthorized dumping will result in the person dumping being invoiced the cost of one bin lift.
