Ambleside agreement means more housing

The Town of Smithers signed a 10-year agreement with Ambleside Projects Ltd. to develop land in the Willowvale subdivision.

The Town of Smithers has signed a 10 year purchase and sales agreement with development firm Ambleside Projects Ltd. to develop 18 hectares of land in the Willowvale subdivision.

Ambleside and the Town of Smithers have been working together for nearly a year to finalize a plan that would see multiple projects begin construction this year.

“We’re delighted to sign this agreement and facilitate the development of new lots this year,” said Mayor Talyor Bachrach.

“Providing new residential lots to meet the growing demand of new families moving to town had been a high priority for council.”

The master plan submitted by Ambleside includes 106 single-family lots as well as 12 bare land strata patio homes and two additional sites for multi-family development.

“I’m looking forward to sharing our master plan with the community and working to create a new neighbourhood that builds on the high quality of development that is a signature of Smithers,” said Ambleside president, Jim Dobinson.

Smithers residents will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed development during the rezoning and OCP amendment process.
