Planning for development in east acreage areas underway

At the March 20 meeting, Council directed staff to continue the creation of an Area Structure Plan (ASP) for the acreages in the eastern portion of Chestermere.

When the land was annexed into Chestermere in 2009, one of the conditions was the eventual creation of an ASP for the area. As many homes already exist, an ASP is especially important to ensure any new infrastructure or development is added in a coordinated way.

An ASP was prepared in 2015 following consultation with homeowners but was defeated due to concerns about the coordination of utility services. Council is now asking staff to continue the process by addressing concerns regarding options for utilities and consideration for the subdivision of larger rural style lots.

“We recognize the importance of creating a long term vision for this area so residents have a clear understanding of what would and would not be allowed should they wish to make changes to their property,” said Jillian Geen, Municipal Planner at the City of Chestermere. “We are going to move this forward as quickly as possible to get that plan in place.”

Staff will be conducting further research in the coming months and will present an updated ASP to landowners for their review and comments.
