Hous­ing project less than half size of orig­i­nal pro­posal

The Daily Courier - - CITY -

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.
