MOUNTAIN VIEW COUNTY – Mountain View County council has approved land use redesignations in two divisions. The move came during the recent regularly scheduled meeting, which was held by teleconference.

Council approved a redesignation from agricultural district to residential farmstead district on a 160-acre parcel in the Westcott rural neighbourbood in Division 4.

The purpose of the redesignation is to accommodate a single residential parcel of land containing the farmstead from an unsubdivided quarter section.

The proposed parcel is located west and south of the Town of Didsbury along Rge. Rd. 24, at NW 4-31-2-5.

“The property has been in the applicant’s family for several years and the farmstead was established on this quarter in the current location,” administration said. “The original farmstead home is still within this property however is no long occupied, and the landowners have applied for and received approval for a change of use from dwelling, single family to storage building – cold storage.”

Administration supported this redesignation, saying the proposed parcel does not have a negative impact on the existing agricultural uses on the balance of the quarter.

Council also approved a redesignation from agricultural district to residential farmland district on a 144-acre parcel in the Netook rural neighbourhood at SE 26-33-1-5.

The purpose of the redesignation is to accommodate a single residential parcel of land containing the farmstead from an unsubdivided quarter section.

The property is located about four kilometres east and six kilometres north of Olds next to Highway 2.

“This is the location of the original farmstead for the surrounding quarter and contains the original farmstead home,” administration said. “The parcel contains two single-family dwellings, and a review of historical files shows permits for a mobile home. A review of assessment records shows the presence of a single-family dwelling built in 1938. The landowner currently resides in the mobile home.”

Administration supported the redesignation.
