Proposed development would have acre or bigger lots

All water and road servicing would be covered by developer

Editor, The Record:

Re: Development would improve communication, Aug. 23 edition.

For clarification purposes the article states, “Dean Hodgson says he has the support of the Steelhead Community Association Executive Board.”

The board would like to make it clear that their support of this application for the development proposal reflects the opinions only of the executive board of the Steelhead Community Association and not the Steelhead community at large.

I would also like to clarify a few things.

Although it’s very early in the planning stage and with final zoning unknown, several things are known:

1. We will ensure that all lots will be one full acre or larger.

2. We anticipate between approximately 55 and 60 lots if we are permitted Suburban 36 zoning with city water.

3. All services including city water and roads would be paid for by the developer.

4. Initial comments from District of Mission staff indicate a preference of cash in-lieu to develop parks elsewhere in Mission.

5. A west coast flavour will be consistent throughout the development with building and landscape design guidelines that must meet approval before construction begins.
