Chestermere Connection Story: Creating jobs in Chestermere

webster

Alarm rings. Shower. Get dressed. Get the kids up. Breakfast (maybe). Coffee to go. Backpacks. Let the dog out. Drop kids off. Commute. Stuck in traffic. Red lights. Still stuck in traffic. Pay a ridiculous amount to park. Finally get in to work.

This is a typical morning for many Chestermere residents as over 60% work outside of our community.

What if your mornings didn’t have to be that way? What if you could work right here in Chestermere?  That’s what the team at the City is working to accomplish as they create the City’s first light industrial park.

Located in the far southeast corner of Chestermere, it is anticipated that at full build out, the Webster Business Park could provide around 700 local jobs. 

When the City purchased the land in 2015, they immediately began getting the property ready for development by creating a land use plan for the area, defining lots and bringing utilities to the property (with the upgrade of Township Road 240).

The project includes expertise from the City’s Economic Development, Engineering, Planning, Accounting, and Project Management staff as well as help from Colliers International – the brokers for the property.

“Bringing more businesses to Chestermere is a big priority for us,” says Catherine Proulx, Economic Development Manager. “We want to provide more opportunities for the people who live here to work here. It makes our economy and community stronger.”

Businesses, including small manufacturing and trades, have already submitted letters of intent for more than 50% of Phase 1 (of 2) and the City is eager to finish the Subdivision Plan for the property this summer.

Development takes time but the staff working on the project anticipate that businesses could get shovels in the ground in Webster as early as 2020.

In the meantime, it’s something to dream about while you wait at a red light.
