Coronation Town Council hears citizen concerns at public hearing

Written by Submitted

On June 24 Coronation Town Council held a public hearing for the purpose of considering an amendment to the Town of Coronation’s Land Use by-law 2009-559.
The Town has undertaken a new sub division of approximately 35.86 parcels of land to be used for 15 fully serviced light industrial lots south of Railway Avenue.
Alan Shoemaker, owner of the RV Park and Bunkhouse on the south east side of town, attended the public hearing and asked council to consider omitting the parcel of land behind his property from being rezoned or to keep it as an urban reserve.
“We don’t want truck loads coming in at 4 a.m.” said Shoemaker. “If you set a reasonable price, I’ll consider buying it.”
CAO Sandra Kulyk told Shoemaker to put his offer in writing and she would present it to council.
Council said the parcel of land on the south east side of town could potentially be used for a new RCMP detachment. Council said this spot would be ideal because it would give the RCMP immediate access to Highway 12 and continued access to town.
Kulyk said plans for a new RCMP detachment are in their preliminary stages and nothing is happening just yet.
Council did not make any decisions during the hearing.
Council approved Techmation Electric’s application to construct a 60’ by 90’ office and warehouse in the new industrial subdivision.
The proposed construction met all required minimum setbacks and size and height restrictions for construction.
Techmation Electric estimated it will begin construction on July 2, 2013 and will be completed on November 1, 2013.
CAO Sandra Kulyk said in her report to council that the Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee had three potential candidates. The physicians have been interviewed over the phone and site visits have been arranged for July and August.
