City approves expansion in Laredo subdivision

A 159-lot expansion to the Laredo subdivision was approved by the City of Red Deer’s municipal planning commission.

A 159-lot expansion to the Laredo subdivision was approved by the City of Red Deer’s municipal planning commission.

The proposed residential subdivision was approved by a vote of four to two at the commission’s Wednesday meeting.

The dissenting votes came as the result of concerns of the 10 proposed duplexes being in one close in the subdivision. The concern was specifically around the increased traffic in the one location as a result of the higher density zoning among the predominantly low-density subdivision.

Of the 156 residential lots, 105 will be zoned R1 — low density, 31 will be narrow lots, 10 will be small lots and another 10 will be semi-detached.
