Final phase of Sunnybrook South approved
The final residential phase of the Sunnybrook South (Southbrook) neighbourhood has received subdivision approval.
Red Deer’s municipal planning commission voted on Monday to authorize the creation of 65 detached dwelling lots, a multi-family residential lot, three municipal reserve lots and two public utility lots out of 21.2 acres. The affected land is north of 19th Street and east of Piper Creek, with the areas further west and to the east previously subdivided and currently under development.
There is still land along the south side of Sunnybrook South that has been earmarked for commercial development and has yet to be subdivided.
Sunnybrook South is being developed by Melcor Developments Ltd.
Subdivision proposal nixed
A proposal to split a Parkvale property into two lots suitable for a duplex received a thumbs-down from Red Deer’s municipal planning commission on Monday.
Angela Sommers and Derek Doedel were seeking to subdivide the property at 4634 49th St., which currently has a single-family dwelling on it.
The commission was told that the home, known as the “Payne Residence,” is designated under the city’s land use bylaw as having historical significance. If the property were to be subdivided, the dwelling would have to be significantly altered to comply with the Alberta Building Code and to create separate entrances on each lot.
Several nearby landowners and the Parkvale Community Association objected to the application.
