Approved: Saline Creek Area Structure Plan
Adoption of the Saline Creek area Structure Plan by Council on July 10, 2007 has initiated the process of releasing two large parcels of land currently owned by Keyano College and Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation. The future residential area covering approximately 862 hectares southeast of the Lower Town Site will accommodate an estimated population of 20,000 people in 6,800 dwelling units.
The Saline Creek Plateau development concept is based on a set of planning principles that enhance the quality of life through sustainable urban design. Key features of the plan include three compact neighborhoods with a variety of housing options, a mixed-use village centre linked to a grand boulevard from Highway 69, a community recreation facility, four school sites, a fused grid transportation network, an interconnected multi-use pathway system and a proposed golf course.
