A newly amended area structure plan for the Railside Industrial Park has been approved, as of Aug. 11.

County of Wetaskiwin council last addressed the issue during a public hearing on June 7 and passed the first reading but decided it required more information before moving ahead.

“There were some outstanding issues,” said David Blades, director of planning and economic development.

“Specifically there was some additional information we wanted to have regarding the inactive landfill,” he added. “We believe concerns for the additional information have been put into the area structure plan.”

Council also wanted to see a traffic impact assessment for Township Road 475 and Highway 2A; it indicates a future need for turning lane improvements and traffic lights.

Blades says the total cost of the project would be approximately $800,000.
