At a regular meeting on Oct. 14th, the Town of Blackfalds council unanimously approved a new subdivision to be developed by Tricon Developments Inc. at the corner of Vista Trail and Womacks Road.

Tricon has applied to construct nine eight-plex units in the development and as part of the development requested approval of a bare-land condo subdivision to develop four parcels within the condo property on the land Planning and Development Manager Terry Topolnitsky said in his presentation.

He added that notification had been sent to all the affected agencies (Lacombe County, ATCO Pipelines, Fortis Alberta, Alberta Transportation and the Town departments) with no objections, although the Energy Resources Conservation Board noted there was an abandoned well in that location.

Topolnistky said the purpose of the bare-land condo subdivision was just to subdivide the land and aid the developer in figuring out its finances for the project.

Council approved the subdivision unanimously with little discussion other than a few concerns regarding whether or not there would be confusion regarding the responsibilities of the condo association versus the Town on matters such as waste management.

Councillor Richard Poole and Mayor Melodie Stol wanted to make sure there would not be complications when it came to garbage removal and that residents would be able to participate in the Town’s recycling program.

Topolnitsky and Director of Infrastructure Preston Weran assured council that processes are in place to prevent such confusions.

“It’s not an issue at all,” said Topolnitsky.

The approved subdivision is subject to a number of conditions as per the Land Titles Act and Municipal Government Act.
