During their regular meeting July 7, members of Sylvan Lake’s Municipal Planning Commission (MPC):

● approved a development application for construction of the final four buildings in the seven building Newport Village condominium complex on Windward Place. The four buildings will contain 16 row housing units.

Two of the seven buildings have already been constructed and a development permit for the third was approved by MPC at its May 5 meeting.

The units will consist of two floors with an attached garage, uncovered deck and private yards for each row housing unit.

In granting approval, MPC members granted relaxations of just under 10 per cent on parcel coverage for the interior two units of each of the four unit buildings. They also imposed a condition that a fence be constructed between three of the buildings to screen them from neighbours on William Close.

● approved a subdivision application to create a 1.394 hectare (3.45 acre) lot immediately north of the newly constructed apartment building on Broadway Rise in the Beacon Hill subdivision.

The property is zoned High Density Residential (R3) District. Among permitted uses in the district are apartments, four-plexes, row housing and stacked rowhouses.

The report presented to members noted details of any proposed development have not yet been submitted for review.
