Council approves concept of 33.61-hectare subdivision

HUMBOLDT — A new 33.61-hectare subdivision in northwest Humboldt could be in the works.

At its Feb. 14 meeting, council voted to approve the concept of the new subdivision, which would be located behind the Humboldt Co-op Food Store.

The project is being done by Westwood Development Corporation, with the concept plan developed by Caterall and Wright.

It would feature 114 single family lots, 35 semi-detached units and one large estate lot. The development is expected to be done over five phases. There would also be a 2.48-hectare storm pond that would act as a central feature of the development.

Frank Carpentieri, Humboldt’s planning co-ordinator, said there’s still a lot of questions the city has about the development, which include wastewater and infrastructure.

“We've just got those questions on hold until we get a feel from council as to whether the city wants to endorse this plan and then we would go into further discussions with the developer,” he told council at the meeting

Joe Day, Humboldt’s administrator, told council that he needed council’s approval to work further with the proponent to ensure that the city’s infrastructure needs would be satisfied.

“Once we get that information [from] the developer, then we'll come back with another document.”

That document, which would have more details, is expected to be submitted to council for approval.

The city would also have to develop a plan to subdivide and rezone the land if it were to move forward.
