Council unanimously approved an application for Phase One of the Painted Sky Development, which will create, according to planner Xin Deng, 155 residential lots, a 12.38-acre commercial lot for future development, four Municipal Reserve lots and two Public Utility Lots on 65.38 acres of land located in Langdon, west of Centre Street and south of Highway 560.
A second subdivision, creating a 4.92-acre parcel with a 42.64-acre remainder east of Beiseker, was amended and approved unanimously.
According to Senior Planner Stefan Kunz, the subject lands were located within two different municipalities, and the purpose of the application was to subdivide the lands into two distinct parcels within each municipality.
“This is a bit of a unique situation,” he said. “These lands are the remnant of a quarter section that was bisected by Highway 9, and then throughout the years was subdivided further.”
Council voted unanimously to delete conditions from the application requiring water be supplied by well and the payment of Transportation Off-Site Levy – which, although the land’s agricultural designation was not intended to be changed, were included in case of a future sale, Kunz said – then approved the subdivision.A third subdivision application – a boundary adjustment on land west of Madden expanding an existing 0.18-acre parcel to one acre in size, according to planner Johnson Kwan – was also approved unanimously.
