Three-phase subdivision re-zoning approved for Alder Flats

Lyle Seely’s application approved after County of Wetaskiwin public hearing June 13

Those interested in living in the Alder Flats area may have more options open to them after a re-zoning to accommodate a three-phase subdivision was approved by the County of Wetaskiwin June 13.

The re-zoning was scheduled for a public hearing during the regular Planning and Economic Development council meeting. Councilor Lyle Seely is the owner of the property in question and the applicant, and requested he be excused from the public hearing, so councilors passed a resolution to that end and Seely left. Reeve Terry Van de Kraats then opened the public hearing.

Director of Planning and Development David Blades presented the application to re-zone property owned by Seely which is known as “Fieldstone Acres.”

“On April 22, 2019, Administration received a Rezoning Application from Mr. Lyle Seely of 824440 Alberta Ltd. to redistrict approximately on hundred (100) acres from Urban Fringe (UF) to Urban Residential (UR),” stated Blades in his report.

“The proposed area is located just north of the Hamlet of Alder Flats and will consist of sixty-one (61) Urban Residential (UR) lots.

“As defined in the approved Area Structure Plan, the proposed development is planned to be undertaken as three (3) separate phases with twelve (12) lots planned for Phase One, nineteen (19) lots for Phase Two, and thirty (30) lots for Phase Three.

“The Fieldstone Acres Area Structure Plan complies with the County’s Municipal Development Plan Bylaw and will be included within the Hamlet of Alder Flats.”

Blades noted the usual requirements were met, such as newspaper advertising of the public hearing and a request for comments from referral agencies. He said no concerns were received from agencies or the public.

Councilors unanimously passed three readings of the re-zoning bylaw. Seely returned to the meeting after the vote.
