Assessment Review Board

The assessment review board is a quasi-judicial administrative board. This means it is created, empowered, and staffed according to the legislation laid out in the Municipal Government Act. The board is like a court as it can order something to be done. In this case, it can order a change to the assessment on a property.

Local assessment review board panels consist of three members who are appointed by the municipality.

Newly appointed Assessment Review Board members are required to complete a training program provided by the Municipal Government Board. After successful completion of the training program the member/clerk will receive their ARB certification. ARB certification is valid for three years from the date the training program is completed.

If you have any questions about the Assessment Review Board, please contact Alisha Mody, Municipal Planner at amody@peaceriver.ca or Susan Martineau, Development Officer at smartineau@peaceriver.ca, or call (780) 624-2574.

Subdivision Development Appeal Board

As a member of the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB) you hear and make decisions on appeals related to Stop Orders, Development, and Subdivisions.

As a statutory body intended to perform an independent adjudicative function that hears complaints and functions like a court, it is an administrative board mandated by the Municipal Government Act and created by a municipality to carry our appropriate functions and procedures. SDAB’s exercise what are called ‘quasi-judicial functions.’ This means that they make a finding of fact based on evidence and then, apply legal rules, as found in the legislation and the planning instruments, to those findings. This process allows the SDAB to make a decision on a subdivision or a development matter after conducting a hearing fairly and in accordance with legislation, administrative law, and the principles of natural justice.

If you have any questions about the Subdivision Development Appeal Board, please contact Alisha Mody, Municipal Planner at amody@peaceriver.ca or Susan Martineau, Development Officer at smartineau@peaceriver.ca, or call (780) 624-2574.
