MacPine Developments Ltd. eyes Woodland Drive

City council has amended property at 18 Woodland Drive.

City council has amended property at 18 Woodland Drive to Comprehensive Development Zone and Single Family Residential after MacPine Developments Ltd. put in a request to create seven new residential lots at the site.

Council received two variance applications to proceed to public consultation, planner Chris Hutton said.

“The permitted variances would exempt the developer from improving the roadway to a local road standard (similar to the road standard in the Westridge area), and to allow the applicant to use a ditching system (essentially what is there) for storm water runoff, instead of a curb and gutter storm water drainage system.”

Those two variances are now open for public feedback, and will be finally considered by Council on May 12 at its regular meeting.

Notices have been mailed out to property owners within 100m of the subject property. Anyone may submit comments for or against the applications until 4:30 on May 12th, and/or provide direct input to Council at the May 12th meeting.

Originally MacPine asked for five variances at an earlier meeting, however council denied those requests for above ground installations for hydro, utilities and street lighting.
