A proposed subdivision for a Co-op cardlock gas station was approved by Wetaskiwin county council, providing certain stipulations are met.

Approximately 7.2 acres of land adjacent to highways 13 and 795 are being subdivided for rural commercial development.

A yard site is also located on the land and Alberta Transportation approves the subdivision subject to a 30 metre service road, which West Central Planning recommends runs along the north side of the public utilities lot.

Plans from a surveyor, no additional direct access to the highways, a storm water management system, and a dry fire hydrant are other stipulations of approval.

Currently the yard site has direct access to Highway 13, which Alberta Transportation wanted removed.

There was confusion among the councillors as to whether or not the Highway 13 access needs to be removed or not.

Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers was concerned that no direct highway access meant anyone living in the house would be presented with a possible safety hazard due to fuel tanks. “And that’s why the service road had to be built.”

“When we were approached and they wanted to keep the house for rent that was a concern,” she added.

Coun. Larry McKeever feels having someone living close to the cardlock station may help deter thefts from the site.

Coun. Garry Dearing was concerned with the flood water management system. He feel previous flooding and bottleneck drainage may present issues. “That storm water management, that takes into account the lowness of that corner?”

Assistant CAO Rod Hawken says under the storm management system the water will be diverted into the storm management pond.
