County Approves Junction 42 Local Area Structure Plan

Junction 42 (1)

At the June 12 Council meeting, Red Deer County approved a Local Area Structure Plan (LASP) for a new commercial subdivision similar to Gasoline Alley.

The Plan area encompasses approximately 118 hectares (291 acres) of land located 9.5 kilometers south of the City of Red Deer, directly adjacent to the boundary of the Town of Penhold and within an area north and west of the Highway 2 & 42 overpass.

The purpose of the Junction 42 Local Area Structure Plan (LASP) is to provide a general land use planning framework for the subdivision and development of SE &
SW 5-37-27-W4M. The first phase of development envisions the creation of a large commercial area and truck parking area located adjacent to Highway 42, directly north of the intersection west of Highway 2.

The LASP also allows for on-site servicing of developments within the first phase with the expectation that developments within that phase will be required to connect to municipal piped services once they have been brought to the parcel boundary(s).

According to Mayor Jim Wood, “We know that the City of Red Deer will be growing and annexing more land. We need to prepare for the future and this development allows us to do that.”

Some nearby residents expressed concern about increased traffic in the area. Council was informed by staff that once traffic counts increase, a key intersection will be expanded to ensure there are not bottle necks in the area.

An important factor in the timing of the development is the impending closure of the north/south service road in Gasoline Alley by Alberta Transportation. A large number of trucks currently use this road, and will be seeking another place to stop once it is closed.
