Housing project less than half size of original proposal
Part of a former cattle feedlot could be developed with 153 new homes in a mix of row houses and low-rise apartment buildings.
Almost 350 units were originally planned for the site at 2755 McCurdy Rd., formerly known as the Marshall feedlot.
Those development intentions, approved by council in 2011, were scrapped in favour of the new proposal to be discussed Tuesday at a public hearing.
Plans call for the homes to cover about seven hectares, with another 18 ha along Mill Creek dedicated to the city for future park and transportation uses.
The development site is generally between the existing Marshall Business Park and homes on the east side of Dilworth Mountain, off Mount Baldy Drive.
The project has attracted little opposition so far. More than 1,600 invitations to attend an open house were mailed out to nearby property owners, but only 15 people attended.
