Railway Right of Way

At the recent Town of Stettler council meeting, a few minor bylaw issues were discussed.

The first was a plan proposed by the Town of Stettler to subdivide and consolidate land that had been affected by the Railway Right of Way Plan.

After a landowner tried to sell land with the railway right of way exception title, the town decided that there was no point for the title, as it was almost 100 years old and the railway no longer exists.

The town will consolidate 404.6 square metres to four separate landowners near the intersection of 50th Avenue and 46th Street.

Rezoning request

Council heard a rezoning request from Napa Autoparts (1143470 Alberta Ltd.) to rezone a parcel of land near the intersection of Highway 12 and 44th Avenue.

Napa wants to rezone a parcel of land on the north part of their property from urban reserve to highway commercial for future commercial use. The applicant intends to subdivide the parcel into half-acre parcels. Council unanimously approved the request.

Free use of leisure centre denied

Council discussed community groups using the Stettler Recreation Centre for free. Council denied a request from a community group in August 2010.

On June 7, council reviewed its policy on providing free use of the recreation centre, but decided that it would not be feasible to provide free use to organizations.

“There are a sea of good causes out there,” said Mayor Dick Richards. “We can’t just pick and choose which groups we support.”
