Progress is being made on the Heartland Business Park, located on the south side of Highway 12, at Stettler’s east entrance.
“Development is proceeding according to the development agreement between the town and county of Stettler,” said Greg Hayden, one of the developers.
“It’s a unique arrangement — the land is in the county and the services will be provided by the town.”
Hayden said the property is being installed with utilities and is tied to town services. Base roads are slated to be constructed and a highway intersection installed for access to Highway 12.
“We hope to have it done by late fall, weather permitting,” Hayden said.
He described the business park as a unique first-class development, which will be fully serviced and paved.
Phase 1 of the project will be zoned and developed as highway commercial, offering a highly visible location.
The property is being promoted as “high and dry,” because of it higher location and good drainage.
Hayden said there has already been interest in the property, but he expects people will take a more serious look at what there is to offer when the preliminary servicing has been completed and road-work is in place.
The second phase of the project, for the back half of the property, is intended to be developed as country residential.
