Road into two (2) lots, including one lot on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road that would be 31.6
ha in size and a second lot on the opposite side of Bobbie Burns Road that would be 31.3 ha. As

Page 17 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.4
Site Context
The subject property is located in Electoral Area “D” on an undedicated portion of Bobbie Burns
Road approximately 6.5 kilometres from Trinity Valley Road. Bobbie Burns Road passes through
the property in a north-south direction dividing the property into two parts. A house and garage
are located on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road. The land on the west side of the road slopes
up from Bobbie Burns Road. On the east side of the road the property slopes down to Styx Creek
then up towards Bobbie Burns Mountain. The portion on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road is
sparsely treed while the eastside is also sparsely treed with some large tree clusters.
The subject and surrounding properties are zoned as Large Holding (L.H). As shown on the
attached ALR Boundaries Map and the orthophoto below, the majority of the subject property is
located within the ALR. A 9.65 ha portion located along the western boundary is not located within
the ALR. Portions of the surrounding properties are also within the ALR. The ALR portions of
the subject and surrounding properties are designated as Agricultural within the Electoral Areas
“D” and “E” Official Community Plan. The non-ALR portions of the subject property and properties
to the north and south are designated as Large Holding. The properties located to the west and
east are crown lands and are designated as Resource.
The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2007.
Page 18 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.4
The Proposal
The applicant proposes to subdivide the 64.75 ha subject property into two (2) lots along the
alignment of Bobbie Burns Road. One lot on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road would be 31.6
ha in size and a second lot on the east side of the road would be 31.3 ha. A 1.75 ha area would
be required for the dedication of Bobbie Burns Road. The applicant has indicated that the parcel
was partially logged in the mid 2000’s and, as it is severed by Bobbie Burns Road, agricultural
activities on the whole property are difficult to impossible. The applicant also indicates that
shallow bedrock, adverse topography, and soil conditions limit the property’s agricultural
capabilities.
Agricultural Capability of the Subject Property
The Canada Land Inventory agricultural capability classification system groups land into seven
classes according to the land’s potential and limitations for agricultural use depending on soil and
climate characteristics. As the class numbers increase from Class 1 to 7, the range of crops
decreases. Associated with each class is a subclass that identifies limitations or special
management practices needed to improve the soil. The classification usually gives land two
ratings: unimproved and improved. Unimproved ratings describe the land in its native condition.
Improved ratings indicate the land’s potential once management practices have been
implemented, such as irrigation, stone removal or drainage.
Class 1 land is capable of producing the very widest range of crops. Soil and climate conditions
are optimum, resulting in easy management. Class 2 land is capable of producing a wide range
of crops. Minor restrictions of soil or climate may reduce capability but pose no major difficulties
in management. Class 3 land is capable of producing a fairly wide range of crops under good
management practices. Soil and/or climate limitations are somewhat restrictive. Class 4 land is
capable of a restricted range of crops. Soil and climate conditions require special management
considerations. Class 5 land is capable of producing cultivated perennial forage crops and
specially adapted crops. Soil and/or climate conditions severely limit capability. Class 6 land is
considered to be important in its natural state as grazing land and cannot be cultivated due to soil
and/or climate limitations. Class 7 lands have no agricultural capabilities.
The Inventory rates the ALR portion of the subject property as 60% Class 4 and 40% Class 5 with
the improved rating being the same. The subclasses associated with these ratings are identified
as topography and stoniness. The non-ALR portion of the property is rated as Class 7. The
subclasses associated with this rating is identified as topography and consolidated bedrock.
OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN
The subject property is designated Large Holding and Agricultural in Schedule “B” of Electoral
Areas “D” and “E” Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2485. The following OCP Agricultural
policies are relevant to this application:
• Agricultural lands are designated on OCP map Schedules B, B1 & B2 and are within the ALR
and the Agricultural Land Commission Act will take precedence;
• Lands designated as Agricultural are intended to be used for agricultural purposes and
associated uses as allowed by the ALC and the Regional District. All uses and subdivision of
ALR land shall be in accordance with the ALC Act, Regulations, Orders and Policies;
Page 19 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.4
•
•
•
The minimum parcel size for Agricultural lands shall be 30.5 ha. Large parcel sizes and
setbacks are encouraged and supported through the Zoning Bylaw regulations to minimize
the potential for land use conflicts and to support long term agricultural use consistent with
Agricultural Land Commission Act objectives;
Support the Agricultural Land Commission in its efforts to protect and enhance farmland.
Where land is in the ALR, minimum parcel sizes shall apply only when the land is:
o excluded from the ALR; or
o approved for subdivision within the ALR pursuant to the Agricultural Land Commission
Act, regulations thereto, or orders of the Commission; or
o exempted by the Agricultural Land Commission Act, regulations thereto, or orders of the
Commission;
Encourage strategies that will see large agricultural land holdings retained and parcels
consolidated and operated as single agricultural operations rather than broken up as
individual land tenures with multiple ownership.
ZONING BYLAW
The subject property is zoned Large Holding (L.H). The minimum lot size standard of the Large
Holding (L.H) zone is 30.5 ha. Uses permitted in the L.H zone include accessory farm sales, bed
and breakfast uses, boarding house uses, community care facilities, fruit and produce pickers’
cabins and work force housing units on lots 4 ha or larger, home occupations uses, medical
marihuana production facilities, packing houses, public parks and playgrounds, resource uses,
single and two family dwellings, secondary suites, veterinary clinics, wineries and cideries,
intensive and limited agricultural uses, ancillary dwellings, and manufactured homes.
The number of buildings allowed per lot in the L.H zone may not exceed:
1) one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home; and
2) for lands that are located within the ALR, additional single family dwellings shall not be
permitted unless the owner has first submitted an application to the ALC; and
3) one ancillary single family dwelling on land in and out of the ALR, subject to the dwelling not
exceeding a gross floor area of 75 m2 (807.3 ft2) exclusive of attached open carports and open
porches, shall not include a basement, shall not include habitable space in an attic, and shall
not be permitted on lots smaller than 2 ha (4.942 acres).
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
The Planning Department recommends that this application not be supported as it is inconsistent
with the Agricultural Policies of the OCP which:
• encourage strategies that will see large agricultural land holdings retained and parcels
consolidated and operated as single agricultural entities rather than broken up as individual
land tenures with multiple ownership; and
• support the Agricultural Land Commission in its efforts to protect and enhance farmland.
It is acknowledged that the agricultural capability of the ALR portion of the property (Classes 4
and 5) is somewhat limited. However, achieving and sustaining viable farm operations on two
smaller parcels with limited agricultural capability may pose an even greater challenge.
Page 20 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.4
It is acknowledged that crossing Bobbie Burns with farm equipment and particularly livestock
would be required in order to farm the property as one unit. It is suggested that having to cross
the road should not restrict the ability to farm the property as one unit as traffic on the road is
limited.
Support for the application could however set a precedence that may lead other property owners
to believe that agricultural parcels within the area can be subdivided, which in turn could lead to
additional requests to subdivide within the ALR. The creation of smaller farm parcels in
agricultural areas can affect the land values by giving the impression that farm land can be used
for speculative non-agricultural development. This may result in inflation of the value of
agricultural land making it more difficult for farmers to purchase land.
SUMMARY:
The subject application proposes to subdivide a 64.75 ha property located at 655 Bobbie Burns
Road into two (2) lots, such that there would be one lot on each side of Bobbie Burns Road. As
the property is located in the Agricultural Land Reserve, approval under Section 21(2) of the
Agricultural Land Commission Act is required in order to subdivide the property as proposed.
The Planning Department recommends that the application not be supported as it appears
contrary to Official Community Plan policies which support the protection of farmland, including
the retention of large agricultural parcels and the consolidation and operation of agricultural
parcels as single agricultural entities rather than broken up as individual land tenures with
separate owners. The agricultural capability of the land is somewhat constrained, therefore
reducing the parcel size may further limit its viability as an independent farm entity.
REFERRALS
The application was referred for comments to the following:
1.

5.
6.
Electoral Area “D” Director
Electoral Area “D” Advisory Planning Commission
Electoral Area Advisory Committee
Building Inspection Department
Ministry of Agriculture
Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee
At the Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee meeting held November 19, 2015 the
Committee reviewed this application and discussed:
• the new parcels would meet zoning minimum lot size standards; and
• no information provided on the soil capability.
The Committee passed the following resolution:
• That the subdivision Agricultural Land Commission application submitted by D. Thorpe c/o
Monashee Surveying [File No. 15-0533-D-ALR] for the property located at 665 Bobbie
Burns Road, Electoral Area “D” be supported and forwarded to the Agricultural Land
Commission.
7. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
The Ministry commented they have no objections, in principle, to this proposal. This approval,
in no way, constitutes approval of the future subdivision. A full review of all pertinent
legislation, regulations and policies will be conducted after receipt of a subdivision application.

RDNO BOARD REMUNERATION
Board of Directors Compensation Advisory Committee
The following report addresses each purpose stated in the terms of reference provided to the
Board of Directors Compensation Advisory Committee (CAC).
1.
To review the Director’s compensation levels relative to responsibilities,
commitment and effort.
Committee’s actions
• Requested input from the Chair, Vice Chair, Area Directors and Municipal Directors
regarding roles and responsibilities.
• Received feedback from the Chair, 3 Area Directors and 2 Municipal Directors.
• Requested a list of statutory responsibilities outlined for local government officials by
Province of Alberta.
• Prepared draft position expectations for Electoral Area Directors and Municipal
Directors (See attachments 1a and 1b). CAC members were advised that
responsibilities for the Chair of the Board of Directors (and presumably the Vice
Chair position) are outlined in sections 218 and 219 of the Local Government Act.
Committee’s recommendation
Board of Directors review, modify and approve position documents for Electoral Area
Directors and Municipal Directors (Refer to draft descriptions in attachment 1a and 1b).
CAC members’ reasons for recommending approval of position documents: i) enhanced
awareness of Director’s responsibilities for prospective candidates and newly elected or
appointed Board members, ii) continued commitment and effort by sitting Board
members, iii) increased communication and transparency to members of the public and
iv) improved information for future comparative compensation reviews.
2.
To make comparisons with other jurisdictions.
Committee’s actions
• Determined information needs. Met several times over the past four months to
determine needs and agree on methods for gathering data.
• Developed a compensation survey. Mailed surveys to 12 neighbouring regional
districts (RDs).
• Received completed surveys. Ten of the 12 RDs responded (See survey
attachment #2 for respondents).
• Analysed the survey results. Replies were analysed statistically, but there was no
relationship between the Board remuneration offered by the 10 RDs’ and either their
population or revenue base.
• Created a ‘bottom-line’. From the data submitted, added annual remuneration plus
annual compensation received for attending Board meetings (Regular, Committee of
the Whole, Public Hearings and In Camera meetings). Using this calculation, the
remuneration package for RDNO Directors is approximately average.
Annual remuneration Area Directors
Municipal Directors
Average (10 RDs)
$18,640.60
$10,152.40
RDNO
$18,000.00
$11,448.00
The accuracy of Average is somewhat imperfect because a few respondents stated
‘varies’ rather than providing a specific number of Board meetings.
Page 45 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.7
As well, there are many different remuneration philosophies implemented by RDs. At
one end of the spectrum, some RDs offer high annual indemnities and assume
attendance at all Board meetings, and at the other end, annual indemnities are low and
dollars for attendance at Board meetings are high.
Committee’s recommendation
In future, compensation comparisons with other jurisdictions should include copies of
position expectations for Electoral Area Directors and Municipal Directors.
Position descriptions allow participating RDs to compare similarities and differences in
responsibilities to those of RDNO (i.e. whether the RDNO expectations provided are a
‘good’, ‘fair’ or ‘poor’ match to other RD directors’ responsibilities). When a match is
selected, survey responses from other RDs provide for improved data comparisons.
3.
To present findings and make recommendations to the Board of Directors on
potential changes.
Committee’s actions
• Calculated findings. The attached survey records responses from the 10
respondents in black and for ease of comparison, RDNO in red. Please note that
some of the individual responses in the survey (attachment #2), when viewed in
isolation, are misleading.
• Discussed and agreed to recommended changes. Determining a fair and equitable
approach for the RDNO Board remuneration has been a challenge, given the variety
of approaches implemented by neighbouring RDs; nevertheless, the Committee
members have agreed on the following.
Committee’s recommendations
For implementation following the November 2011 election, the Compensation Advisory
Committee recommends the following changes to the Board remuneration package. As
well, the percentages recommended below are intended to follow the January 2011 cost
of living adjustment stated in Bylaw No. 2360.
Recommendations of CAC members are highlighted in bold and follow each
section of the Bylaw.
2. The Chair of the Regional Board shall be paid at the rate of $1,168.00 monthly in
addition to the remuneration provided in Clause 5 of this bylaw. Recommend an
increase of 5% for additional salary paid to Chair.
3. The Vice Chair of the Regional Board shall be paid at the rate of $129.00 monthly in
addition to the remuneration provided in Clause 5 of this bylaw. Recommend an
increase of 5% for additional salary paid to Vice Chair.
4. Directors and Alternate Directors shall be paid $137.00 per meeting for each regular or
special meeting of the Board they are required to attend. Recommend an increase
of 2% to the amount paid to Directors and Alternate Directors, on behalf of the
Director, for attending regular and special meetings of the Board.
5. (a) Electoral Area Directors shall be paid an indemnity of $658.00 monthly in addition
to payment for meetings to which they may be required to attend. The difference
between this amount and the Municipal Directors’ remuneration identified in Clause
5(b) of $129.00 will be funded through Electoral Area Administration.
(b) Municipal Directors shall be paid an indemnity of $529.00 monthly in addition to
payment for meetings to which they are required to attend.
2
Page 46 of 58
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
March 10, 2016 - Item E.7
Recommend the base indemnity paid to Electoral Area and Municipal
Directors be equal (i.e. eliminate the portion paid to Area Directors through the
Electoral Area Administration) and be increased for all directors by 2%.
Committee members contend that each Director should have equal responsibility for
and commitment to the whole region as well as his or her electoral area or
municipality (Refer to section 6 for the portion paid to Area Directors by Electoral
Area Administration).
6. Electoral Area Directors shall be compensated for travel and other costs incurred in
their Electoral Area at $407.00 monthly and this amount will be funded from Electoral
Area Administration in addition to the compensation provided in Clause 12.
Recommend the indemnity difference paid to Area Directors in Section 5 (a) be
added to the amount funded by Electoral Area Administration for travel and
other costs in this section and the total amount paid by the Electoral Area
Administration be increase by 2%. Committee members maintain that each Area
Director should be additionally compensated for his or her responsibilities to area
constituents.
7. Each Director, Alternate Director, or other elected official appointed to a Regional
District Standing Committee shall be paid at the rate of $137.00 per meeting they
are required to attend. Recommend the amount paid to Directors, Alternate
Directors or other elected officials appointed to Board standing committees be
increased by 2%.
(Recommendation is conditional, as follows: 1) member appointments to a standing
committee are approved by the Board of Directors and recorded in the minutes, and
2) total amount of meeting pay per day is limited to three meetings.)
8. The Director or other Elected Official serving as the permanent Chair of a Regional
District Standing Committee shall be paid an additional $12.00 per meeting they are
required to attend. Recommend an increase to $15.00 per meeting be paid to a
permanent Chair of a standing committee.
9. The Regional Board Chair shall be paid the sum of $137.00 for all unappointed
committee meetings attended whether or not the Board Chair has been invited in an
official capacity. Recommend the amount paid to the Board Chair for attending
committee meetings, whether appointed or not, be increased by 2%.
10. Directors or Alternate Directors for all committee meetings attended, whether or not
the Director has been appointed to the committee in question, and other business
meetings, when invited to attend in an official capacity by the Regional Board, Board
Chair, Committee or Committee Chair of the committee in question shall be paid the
sum of $137.00.
Recommend the amount paid to Directors or Alternate Directors, attending on
a Director’s behalf, when appointed to committee or other meetings be
increased by 2%.
(Recommendation is conditional, as follows: 1) all appointments to ad hoc or other
committees are approved by the Board of Directors and recorded in the minutes,
and any remuneration is specified in the proceedings, and 2) total amount of
meeting pay per day is limited to three meetings.)

11. One-third (1/3) of the remuneration established for each Director under this Bylaw is
deemed to be an allowance for expenses incidental to the duties of the Chair, Vice

Regional Board Committee will be reimbursed for mileage expenses incurred in
connection with attending meetings of the Regional Board, meetings of Committees
