Update on East Acreages

EAST ACREAGES UPDATE

East Acreages is a Group of Landowners, With Over 320 Acres on the East Side of Chestermere. East Acreages Annexation into Chestermere Started in Approx. 2005, Over 17 years Ago.


At the time they were promised water and sewer servicing, immediately, if they agreed to the annexation.

Since then, these residents have been told servicing is not possible or would cost over $70 million to bring from TWP 240 by Serenity/Webster development, on the far south end of Chestermere.

East Acreages Report – Feb 2020

“The Utility Master Plan assumed that water would be supplied from a large water main from Township Road 240 north along Range Road 281,”

“The combined total cost of this infrastructure was estimated at $80,000,000 in 2013.” Included a lift station to pump sewer to Lift station 13.”

“2014 East Acreages ASP”

“8.2.1 Interim Water Servicing. Presently there is minimal capacity for East acreages to tie into existing municipal water system currently located directly to west of east acreages.”
Incredibly, these are not the results we found in doing the analysis.
Always being interested in verifying and considering alternative solutions, the City agreed to meet with frustrated East acreage landowners again and look into a newer concept of utilizing off peak efficiency solutions for water servicing, to allow these residents to unlock their land values themselves and not just give the value up to large developers. If servicing for density is feasible, this will unlock millions for each of these residents.
A group of residents came forward and we agreed to proceed with the off-peak efficiency analysis for the water pipelines. This would allow us to determine the parameters for design of new affordable modular pressure stations and reservoirs to unlock the development potential for these residents that have been told it is not possible for so many years.
Incredibly, the analysis came back and the pipelines in the east acreage area and system have the capacity for 3000 additional homes, or commercial equivalents. These lines are directly on the west end of the East Acreages lands. These services are essentially direct to site. This is like winning the lottery.
Though, we now have the data to plan into the future and get the efficiency out of this expensive water infrastructure, using off peak planning in addition to the current available capacity.

Residents Can Unlock Their Land Values! After 17 Years of Being Told NO!

Our next step is to complete a sewer line capacity review, which will help East acreages and Lake ere estates. Though, with this service we believe we have plenty of capacity. Though, again the analysis will also explore off peak efficiency plans. So that the City will have long term plans of how to best use the sewer infrastructure most efficiently.
Tremendous results for our residents.
