City to participate in AUC public hearing for AltaLink’s proposed sub-station location

The City of Chestermere will support AltaLink’s preferred substation location in Chestermere at the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) public hearing, beginning February 27 at Chestermere Landing.

“We applied to be an intervenor because we believe the preferred Site E,* in the far southeast area of Chestermere, provides the most benefits to Chestermere residents, now and in the future” says Jean-Marc Lacasse, Manager of Economic Development for the City.

City officials support the location in Chestermere because it will:

  • Provide stable and reliable power to businesses in the future business park/light industrial area, which will attract more businesses
  • Increase our non-residential tax base, and help create jobs
  • Enhance electrical reliability for current and future Chestermere residents

If the location is approved by the AUC, the City will work with AltaLink to mitigate visual impacts. “We are listening to resident concerns and will ensure the design meets our community standards,” explains Lacasse. “We also negotiated for AltaLink’s preferred location to be moved east of the original proposal. Now it is a reasonable distance from residents and wetlands. The closest resident is more than 350 meters away.”

Read more information about this topic on the City’s website.

The AUC began its formal public consultation process last summer. Interested stakeholders had an opportunity to register as intervenors at the AUC hearing and all residents are welcome to observe the proceedings.

For more information about the AUC hearing process, please visit their website.

*Site E is located along Township Road 240 and is situated 350 meters east of Range Road 282.
