A draft resolution for the SA2022-026 passed through the member’s of Raymond’s Municpal Planning Commission’s hands at their May 10 meeting. The resolution is from the Oldman River Regional Services Commission and is in regard to the subdivision of “Lot 10, Block 2, Plan 1010468 to create a 1.53 acre lot for neighbourhood commercial use and dedicate 1.15 acres of road right-of-way along the eastern boundary of the subject parcel for the future Broadway South.” Says the agenda.
In an application such as this, there are some conditions that the applicant has to agree to, such as, “all outstanding property taxes shall be paid to the Town of Raymond, that the utility right-of-way as required by ATCO Gas is registered prior to finalisation of the subdivision and that the road right-of-way is dedicated on the final plan of the subdivision to the extent indicated on the tentative plan of the subdivision.”
It also notes that a development agreement for servicing of proposed Lot 11 should be required. The existing development agreements previously registered on lots in subdivision plan 1010468 can then be discharged. With consolidation of the undeveloped lots in plan 1010468, the utility rights-of-ways registered on the titles under subdivision plan 1010468 should be reviewed and discharged accordingly. An engineered drainage plan should be required as a condition of subdivision including registration of drainage easements and agreements as applicable.
A second subdivision plan was also addressed at the meeting, relating to Block 49, Plan 2039J and a portion of 4 Street. The applicant is proposing to create two residential lots of 3.91 acres and 0.44 acres while 1.31 acres will be dedicated to road right-of-way along the western boundary of the parcel of land. The applicant will be subdividing a 5.66 acre parcel into these two residential lots.
The letter also notes that, “Both residential lots are currently zoned Urban Reserve – UR-1. A proposal to rezone Lot 2 to the General Residential District – R-1 has been submitted to the Town of Raymond and is being processed concurrently with the subdivision application. Upon redesignation, Lot 2 complies with the minimum lot size requirements for the General Residential District – R-1 and subdivision criteria. Lot 1 will retain the UR-1 zoning designation and is being considered a residual parcel – further subdivision of the residual parcel will require a conceptual design scheme or an Area Structure Plan in accordance with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw.”
“Proposed Lot 1 incorporates an existing dwelling, pasture and riding arena. Proposed Lot 2 is vacant. Municipal servicing is proposed for Lot 2 and a development agreement will be necessary for lot servicing, drainage and other improvements. A preliminary drainage plan has been submitted. The final drainage plan approved by the municipality and accompanying drainage right-of-way plan and agreement, as applicable, will be required as a condition of subdivision approval.”
Most of the conditions are the same, “requiring that all outstanding property taxes shall be paid to the Town of Raymond, that the applicant or owner enter into and comply with a Development Agreement with the Town of Raymond which shall be registered concurrently with the final plan against the titles being created and that the road right-of-way is dedicated on the final plan of the subdivision to the extent indicated on the tentative plan of the subdivision.”
