County Approves New Springbrook Major Area Structure Plan

Springbrook (2)

At the September 19 Council meeting, County Council approved a new plan to guide the growth and development of the hamlet of Springbrook.

First reading for the plan was granted on July 18, and a public hearing was held on September 5. A number of comments were received during the public hearing - focused primarily on the proposed future road realignment of Range Road 281 and Township Road 374.

As a result of the comments received, Council granted second reading to the proposed Bylaw; however, third reading was withheld pending further discussion of the proposed road re-alignment.

According to Planning and Development Director Dave Dittrick, “Planning and Development Services staff worked hard to ensure the proposed re-alignment of Range Road 281 and Township Road 374 represents a safe and efficient alternative transportation route that will serve the future development of the Red Deer Regional Airport, as well as providing a logical second access into and out of Springbrook.”

The plan area includes designated areas for new residential, airport industrial, as well as parks & open space. There is also a specially marked area named ‘Hamlet Centre’, which is earmarked for community use and small business development.

Council approved the new plan unanimously. Red Deer County has seen the tremendous growth of Springbrook – noting a 40% population increase in 5 years. As the economy stabilizes, County staff predict continued growth of the hamlet, and the continued influx of young families.
