Lots created for first residential construction in Crestview

Creation of the first lots in the new Crestview subdivision was approved by Municipal Planning Commission members Monday night.

Creation of the first lots in the new Crestview subdivision was approved by Municipal Planning Commission members Monday night.

The 60 single family residential lots will be located in the northwest corner of the quarter section, bordering Pierview subdivision. The lots will be accessed by an extension of Parson Drive which will connect to 50th Street and service all the lots in the area. The lots are all on the north side of a pipeline right-of-way which runs diagonally through the property.

Also included in the subdivision are a municipal reserve area running along the north boundary which is meant to preserve trees. There’s a substantial area of municipal reserve in the northeast corner of the subdivision which borders a similar reserve in the Vista at Ryders Ridge quarter immediately east and a reserve in the southwest corner of Ryders Ridge.

The pipeline right-of-way in the subdivision is labelled as a public utility lot.

The residential lots were designated as R1A (Medium Lot Residential District) and R4 (Narrow Lot General Residential District) by council at its June 25 meeting.

The total area being subdivided is 8.747 hectares (21.61 acres), according to a report by planner Jolene Tejkl.

Due to council’s concern about the trees and protecting the root systems from damage during construction, a restrictive covenant will be registered against the titles of the lots backing the north boundary “for the purpose of ensuring that future construction and development … is undertaken in a manner that prevents damage to the root system of the existing trees …”

Five phases are planned for development of the quarter section. It will eventually contain 625 units of low density residential, 143 units in high density residential and 41 in mixed use providing for an estimated population of 1,986 on 60.6 hectares (150 acres).
