During a regular meeting Nov. 26, Rocky View County (RVC) council unanimously approved a redesignation to allow for the future creation of a 3.06-acre parcel, a 3.31-acre parcel and a 13.20-acre remainder south of Bragg Creek, north of Highway 66 and west of Highway 22.

According to planner Jessica Anderson, the lands are identified in the Greater Bragg Creek Area Structure Plan (ASP) as part of the Infill Residential area – parcels that have already experienced subdivision greater than eight lots per quarter.

While no one spoke in opposition to the application, the County received six letters outlining concerns around natural flooding, groundwater contamination and the placement of septic fields. These concerns, Anderson said, could be addressed at the subdivision stage.

“There are a lot of issues that are brought up from residents,” said Area Coun. Mark Kamachi. “This is, at the end of the day, a redesignation. I feel that every landowner has his or her right to propose changes to it.”

Setbacks Relaxed

Council voted unanimously to allow setback relaxations for an existing deck in the Elbow Valley area.

According to Anderson, the deck was built at a residence located east of Misty Morning Drive and south of Highway 8. The deck encroaches on a rear-yard setback, she said, and a compliance request was submitted for the property in April. The amendment was recommended to bring the deck into compliance with the DC bylaw.

“Seeing as this is the third or fourth deck relaxation in [the area], this is nothing unusual,” Area Coun. Kevin Hanson said. “I don’t see any issues at all.”
