The next phase of development in Southfork will see the long-awaited second entrance put in.

During the City of Leduc’s June 14 council meeting, manager of Current Planning and Development Carol Hampton said the second access is included in the plans for Stage 7 of the development, which runs along Hwy. 2A.

“There is a lot of concern among myself and my neighbours about a second access,” said Southfork resident Melanie Nesimiuk. “There is a lot of traffic going in and out of there.”

Hampton said the plan is for the second access to be tied into Hwy. 2A and available for use in 2015, this after city council approved a development agreements for Stage 7 and 8 to allow for further residential development in that subdivision following a pair of public hearings.

Stage 7 consists of 6.23 ha for 29 lots for townhouse dwellings, 45 single detached zero lot line lots, eight duplex lots and one lot for future development of a residential complex that may include four-plexes, tri-plexes and one to four-storey apartments. Stage consists of 8.01 ha for 42 lots for townhouse dwellings, 60 single detached lots zero lot line developments, one lot for a K-9 school and one lot for a linear park as Stage 8 of the Southfork neighborhood.

Prior to council’s approval, councillor Dana Smith was concerned about parking once the school is built in that neighbourhood but Hampton said the City has been working with Alberta Education to ensure buses and parents picking up and dropping off students can be accommodated. The tentative plan is to have bus parking on one side of the building and drop-off location on the other side.

“We have to be very proactive” said Mayor Greg Krischke. “We need to pay attention to that as we move into the future.”

Development of the Southfork neighbourhood is approximately halfway completed as Cam Hart, representing Tamini Develpments at the public hearing, said there are still 10-12 phases to be completed in that area.
