City OK's development permits

Council approved two development permits, one for a new building and another for a new business, at its February 12 council meeting.

The first came from Rudon Hydraulics Ltd for development of a new light industrial building and access, parking and landscaping at 5035 Keith Ave., which is west of Kenney on the south side of Keith Ave.

The land is currently vacant and the proposal meets the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw and all items for the permit have been submitted, the city’s director of development services David Block told council.

A Road Reserve Registration for future widening of a portion of Pohle Ave. is required as a condition of the permit, which also includes a variance to allow installation of a sign.

The city requires a security deposit from Rudon of $24,900 as a condition of the permit and construction must begin within 12 months of the permit date and be completed within two years.

The second permit refers to a project well over $1 million, Block told council.

Lindsay Enterprises Ltd is looking to build a light industrial building with two bays for a truck wash and an auto detailing business to service semi-trailer units and RVs.

The development would also have a sani-dump and potable water refilling station.

The lot is just across from Northwest Fuels, Block said.
