Construction Update

Stripping and grading has started on the site. Below is current schedule for construction, and what you can expect to see in each stage.

Please note: this webpage will come down before the summer 2017. For the most up-to-date schedule, please visit the developer's website and sign up for email updates.  

Tree clearing:  underway, another 3-5 days to go

Stripping and grading: March to July, staged

This stage involves removing the existing loam and stockpiling it for re-use in later stages. Once the first layer of loam is removed, grading equipment will be used to establish new drainage pat​terns for the development area. The most significant grading operations will take place where the new storm pond is to be constructed.

Underground deep utility construction: July to August, staged

Placement of the sanitary, storm and water lines throughout the site. The lines are typically 2.5-5m deep.

Surface construction: April to August, phased and staged

Constructing the catch basins, pavement, curbs and sidewalks throughout the development area.

Shallow utility construction: August to September

Constructing the power, gas and communication lines, as well as street lights, throughout the site. These lines are typically less than 1.5m deep. This is the final stage before home construction begins.

Showhome construction: anticipate starting in September

Next steps

The subdivision development process typically takes one to two years for grading, servicing and road construction. At some point during this process, the developer may apply for development permits for new home construction. When The City receives development permits, area residents will be notified by notice postings on the site.
