County of Wetaskiwin hears update on G3 grain elevator project

Assistant CAO Jeff Chipley provides council with project update

County of Wetaskiwin council heard an update during their Planning and Economic Development meeting Nov. 8 from their staff regarding the G3 grain terminal currently under construction along Hwy. #2A.

Assistant CAO Jeff Chipley gave councilors a report on the grain elevator, noting the bad weather since September hasn’t been helping.

“On Monday, October 15, 2018, Councillor D. Woitt asked administration to provide a detailed update regarding the progress of development for G3 Canada Limited for an approved primary grain elevator within NW and SW2-46-24-W4M,” stated Chipley, who noted the development is located at the intersection of Hwy. #2A and Twp Rd #460.

Chipley noted this is one of, if not the biggest, projects currently going on in the County of Wetaskiwin at this time. He noted, not surprisingly, bad weather, including September snowstorms, has affected the construction schedule. The majority of construction will now take place in spring of 2019.

Chipley also noted that one of the conditions of development approval was that there would be no commercial use on #460 until road upgrades were completed by G3 and approved by Alberta Transportation.

Chipley stated G3 is still looking to have the grain terminal open for the 2020 growing season.

Councilor Dale Woitt asked if CP Rail is involved in the project. Chipley answered G3 works closely with CP Rail and is working through certain approvals with CP Rail too.

It was noted G3 planned to give more information at the JEDI Ag Forum on Nov. 23 in Wetaskiwin.
