Direct Control Bylaw for Proposed Motorsports Park Given First Reading

Posted: 2016 September 29th

On Wednesday, September 28, 2016 Mountain View County Council gave first reading to the Proposed Direct Control Bylaw No. 14/16 in regards to a proposed motorsports park development in rural Carstairs.

Council also scheduled the public hearing for the proposed bylaw on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at (or after) 1 p.m. in Mountain View County Council Chambers.

Please note, that the County no longer assigns bylaw numbers for Direct Control Districts as "Bylaw No. LU..." (LU has been removed). Direct Control District Bylaw No. LU 28/16 originally circulated to residents on May 18, 2016 was renumbered as Bylaw No. 14/16 at the Council meeting for first reading on September 28, 2016.

Public comments received referencing Bylaw No. LU 28/16 will be provided to Council as part of the agenda package for Bylaw No. 14/16.

Also below is Bylaw No. 15/16 which would amend the Wessex Area Structure Plan to allow for one quarter from the proposed motorsports park be re-identified from low-density residential to business park.

To view the bylaws and the concept plan for the proposed development please view the following links:

Range Road 20 Construction

Posted: 2016 September 13th

Residents and motorists should also be aware of ongoing roadway construction on RR 20 in two locations.

Road construction and resurfacing has recently started on RR 20 near the Town of Didsbury boundary and will be ongoing for the next several weeks moving from the town boundary north to Twp Rd 320 (Bergen Road).

While there may be occasional closures, traffic will mostly be down to one lane and at reduced speeds.

Please observe all signage and flag-persons in the area, and take alternate routes (Hwy 2A) if necessary or time constrained.

Construction is also taking place on RR 20 just north of the boundary with the Town of Olds. Culvert replacement and resurfacing will be taking place and may result in traffic disruption for the near future.

Please observe all signage and flag-persons in the area.

Any questions on this roadwork, please call the County Office at 403-335-3311.
