Highway commercial development approved for west end of Stettler

A highway commercial development on the west end of Stettler on Highway 12 has been given the green light by the Town of Stettler.

At its regular meeting Oct. 5, town council approved a staff recommendation to approve the application by landowner Steve Wilfort to subdivide and develop a 6.22-acre lot on the south side of the highway on land recently annexed by the town from the County of Stettler.

“It’s a good move,” said Councilor Al Campbell.

Alberta Transportation has indicated that access to the proposed subdivision must by provided by an existing service road that fronts onto the parcel,’ said Leann Bateman of the planning and development services department and contract development officer Dave Dittrick.

Five highway commercial parcels have been previously subdivided from the quarter section and the remaining section is within the agricultural district.

“The applicant is working with the Town of Stettler planning staff on an area structure plan for the remainder of the quarter section which can accommodate residential and commercial development,” states the report.

While the land has now been fully annexed from the county, the applicant has been working with both the town and county on this project for several months, said town manager Rob Stoutenberg.

“All notices to adjacent property owners and agencies have been distributed and everyone is satisfied with the proposal.”

The developer is responsible to arrange for utility services and/or necessary easements for utility rights-of-way with utility companies.

Groundwork on the site has already started.
