PRRD defers RNN liquor license discussion and decision

Decision and discussion deferred.
Decision delayed.

Until a reconsideration is heard by the Agricultural Land Commission, Peace River Regional Directors will defer any further discussion and decisions concerning RNN.

Director Leonard Hiebert noted much can happen behind the scenes leading up to PRRD agenda items.

Hiebert told directors it was much ado about nothing at this point, noting a reconsideration was already in the cards.

“I got a call last week.”

It was earlier speculated directors were going to deny the application.

The rental company’s property is on Agricultural Land Reserve, and requires a zoning amendment for non-farm use to be made first. RNN is located at 437 Briar Ridge Road near Pouce Coupe, and was found last June operating an unpermitted campground, restaurant, and convenience store, along with industrial use.

Twenty-two RV sites, a food truck, a rental shack, workshops, washroom facilities, and other business related buildings were found on the property. An exemption was sought by RNN from the ALC, but refused last July after deeming the campground would impact the agricultural utility of the land.

 The company was then given an August 31, 2020 deadline to come into compliance.

This deadline was not met, with warning tickets issued for construction without building permits and for prohibited use of property.
