Town of Stettler council approved developer Steve Wilfort’s application to plan and develop a parcel of highway commercial land right next to the first phase of the west Stettler business park, along highway 12.

Council took up Wilfort’s proposal its regular meeting on May 3.

“It’s very similar to the one that council had seen earlier on for the first phase of his subdivision,” said town CAO Rob Stoutenberg.

“This one encompasses a larger area and more parcels. It contains 10 parcels.”

Out of these 10 parcels, nine are zoned highway commercial and vary in size from 1.8 acres to 3.5 acres.

The remaining parcel encompasses 62 acres and is zoned urban reserve.

Wilfort will render the 21.97 acres surrounding the ponds near 70 Street to the town.

“The applicant volunteered to donate a large parcel to the town because he knows that it makes sense to have a larger park near west Stettler,” said Stoutenberg.

Re-zoning

Stettler will have one more mobile home park, as council approved Clint Kneeland’s application to rezone the parcel of land on 4901-43 Street and part of the parcel on 4204-50 Avenue from industrial to residential mobile home subdivision. Council also gave the first reading to the rezoning bylaw.

“This would be the first process in him doing some mobile home development in the east end,” said Stoutenberg.

Sidewalk bylaw

Council gave all three readings to bylaw 2012-11, which authorizes the town to levy a special assessment to pay for the sidewalk that was built on the east side of 51 Street, from 49 Avenue to 50 Avenue, and on 49 Avenue, from 51 Street to the alley.

Notice for the local improvement was given to all property owners on January 25, 2008.

“Most of the work was done one to two years ago,” said Greg Switenky, assistant CAO for the town of Stettler.

“However, a section on the south side of Corner Appliance was not done until this year.”

The total cost of the project is $109,448.86.

Property owners will have to pay $45,104.54 out of this amount.

The owners will have the choice to make a lump sum payment or to make yearly payments.
