In 2021, the Town of Blackfalds initiated a landowner’s request to annex Pt. NE 24-39-27-W4M into the Town’s municipal limits (location shown on the map).
The annexation process involved a December 16, 2021 Notice of Intent to Annex and a public Open House that was held at the Town’s Civic Centre on March 31, 2022. Following discussions about the results of the consultation process, the landowner who initiated the annexation officially withdrew their request.
As a result, the Town of Blackfalds is no longer pursuing annexation and has submitted the following Annexation Application Withdraw Report to the Land & Property Rights Tribunal requesting that they close Annexation File AN21/BLC/T-01.
The Annexation Application Withdraw Report fulfills the Town’s obligations under Sections 118 and 119 of the Municipal Government Act:
Should your financial institution or another relevant agency request that you provide them with a Real Property Report, you may use the surveyor that they recommend or visit the Alberta Land Surveyors Association for further information on Real Property Reports.
When you receive your Real Property Report, you can contact us to request a Certificate of Compliance, if necessary. There are various associated requirements and fees related to this certificate that is dependent on your needs. We will outline this detail for you at the time of your request.
