C & E Trail property owner wants to use land as RV storage yard

Red Deer city council gives initial approval

Red Deer city council gave the initial nod to turn a property off the C&E Trail into a storage yard for RVs and heavy equipment.

The property owner wants a temporary site exception to allow for the outdoor storage of recreational vehicles, equipment and machinery on his parcel at 10-39063 C&E Trail — which is south of the Central Park neighbourhood and zoned for future urban development.

In a joint letter to the city, 16 Central Park landowner raised a series of concerns, including property devaluation, and potential access, drainage and traffic-flow problems.

But city administrators saw no significant traffic increases, access problems or environmental concerns, since no oil changes or repairs would be done to vehicles at the site.

Acting city manager Tara Lodewyk recommended in favour of the temporary site exception, noting it was an opportunity for efficient land use in the interim, and doesn’t hinder future development of the site.

If the temporary permit is approved by council after a public hearing on May 13, it would be valid for only three years, after which the applicant would have to re-apply.
