More housing planned for Town of Stettler

More residential development – including affordable housing – has been proposed for the Town of Stettler.

More residential development – including affordable housing – has been proposed for the Town of Stettler.

Recently receiving provincial funding of $154,740 for affordable housing, council passed a staff recommendation at its regular meeting Oct. 20 from the committee of the whole that three condominium dwelling units be acquired in Parkland Place on 45 Street at 48 Avenue from Don-Syl Holdings Ltd. based on multiple-unit pricing subject to approval by the provincial government.

Don-Syl was the only applicant to submit a proposal as the town invited requests for proposals.

These new units will be occupied in about six months,” said town manager Rob Stoutenberg, noting that the proposal requires approval from the provincial government.

Eventually, these units would be owned by the County of Stettler Housing Authority which will repay the town for its 35 per cent funding contribution through monthly rental fees from tenants.

Four-lot subdivision under study

Council tabled a subdivision application to create four residential lots at the southeast corner of 3900 – 44 Street under an application by Ron and Pattie Greidanus, after the town received concerns from the County of Stettler.

“We want staff to discuss this with the county as soon as possible,” said Councillor Al Campbell.

The amended application complies with the memorandum of understanding between the Town of Stettler and the County of Stettler that requires the town to create residential parcels which are one acre in size or smaller.

Speaking with council at the meeting, Greidanus expressed that he desires to have the subdivision approved so he can start to develop the land by next spring, noting that he already has some interest in the property.
