Two subdivisions given County of Wetaskiwin extensions

Two subdivisions given County of Wetaskiwin extensions

Both applicants given 12 month extensions to developments

Two subdivisions were given extensions to their development by County of Wetaskiwin council Aug. 8. Both of the extensions were discussed at council’s regular Planning and Development meeting.

West Central Planning’s Jason Tran presented the two applications to council.

Gooden Industries

“At the March 14, 2013 Council for Planning and Economic Development meeting, Council approved an Area Structure Plan for 1634715 AB Ltd. (Del Neufeld – Goodon Industries) within Lot 2, Block 1, Plan 1224895 within part of NW 10-46-1-W5M,” stated the agenda memo.

“The proposed Area Structure Plan consisted of approximately eighty (80) acres located two (2) miles west of the Village at Pigeon Lake at the intersection of Highways 13 and 771. The plan proposed to develop nineteen (19) lots within the west side of the eighty (80) acres for light industrial land uses. As well, there may also be some commercial components.

It was noted at the meeting the application also received a rezoning and a subdivision and this was the first request from the developer for an extension.

Tran said the applicant is moving ahead with the project, “They are working on it,” but is currently awaiting a gas line’s completion.

Reeve Terry Van de Kraats asked if lengthy utility installations are the norm now. “It just seems like things are taking longer and longer to get done,” said Van de Kraats.

Councilors approved a 12 month extension for the Gooden Industries project.

Pohl project

An agenda memo also noted a third extension was being requested by a developer.

“On August 10, 2017, Administration approved a first parcel out subdivision, under application RW/17/17 for Dennis, Melva and Curtis Pohl within NE 35-45-1-W5M subject to a number of conditions,” stated the agenda memo.

The improvements included engaging an Alberta land surveyor, adding three of a possible five improvements, if necessary, upgrade the existing approach into the remainder of the quarter section to meet County of Wetaskiwin standards, construct a new approach into the proposed lot to meet County of Wetaskiwin standards, property taxes must be at a zero balance on the quarter section and pay an endorsement fee of $200 to West Central Planning Agency when the plan is submitted for endorsement.

The memo noted, “At the time of writing this report, the applicants did submit a survey plan from Integrated Geomatics while the rest of the other conditions are still outstanding based on the subdivision approval dated August 10, 2017.”

Tran noted the developers had been granted two extensions in the past. County staff recommended granting the third extension for 12 months. Councilors approved the extension.
