A lengthy dispute between the Town of White City and RM of Edenwold over the town’s proposed annexation of RM lands is, at long last, heading for a resolution.

Six days of public hearings on the matter have been scheduled by the Saskatchewan Municipal Board, beginning with oral submissions the morning of Nov. 23.

The hearings — to be held at the Sandman Hotel in Regina — will continue Nov. 24, 25, 28, 29 and 30, with a decision expected to be rendered by the end of January.

Written submissions addressing the matter will also be accepted by the SMB until 5 p.m. on Nov. 18.

White City announced in May 2018 its intention to annex the community of Emerald Park, Great Plains Industrial Park, the country residential subdivisions of Escott, Deneve, Park Meadows Estates and Meadow Ridge Estates, and “sufficient additional land” to support anticipated growth over the next 25 years.
