Western RV gets OK for vehicle sales

Red Deer’s municipal planning commission has given Western RV Country the green light to sell, service and repair recreational vehicles and other products in the West QEII Business Park.

Red Deer’s municipal planning commission has given Western RV Country the green light to sell, service and repair recreational vehicles and other products in the West QEII Business Park.

Western RV purchased a 3.9-acre parcel west of Hwy 2 while the land was still part of Red Deer County.

Sales of vehicles were permitted under the applicable zoning at that time, but when the area was subsequently annexed by the City of Red Deer, this changed.

The city’s I1 business service zoning for the land did not allow sales of merchandise.

Western RV sought to have the zoning changed to direct control with an allowance for sales of RVs, boats and motorcycles.

In the meantime, it constructed a 24,000-square-foot building at 65 Burnt Park Dr., and even began serving customers from an alternate location further west.

On April 20, city council gave final reading to a bylaw amending the zoning.

That enabled the commission to approve Western RV’s operations as a discretionary use.

Western RV has affiliate dealerships in Airdrie, Leduc, Wetaskiwin, Calgary, Lethbridge and Sherwood Park, and operated in Red Deer until becoming Paradise RV in the fall of 2006.
