Chestermere embraces opportunity for smaller lots in future development

While Chestermere offers a wide array of beautiful large homes, most single family options begin in the $500,000 range and may be beyond the budget and needs for young couples, single professionals, empty-nesters and many other families.

With a recent change to the City’s growth plans, there may be more opportunities for a wider range of housing types. This past April, Chestermere City’s Council passed an amendment to the Land Use Bylaw to allow for smaller single detached housing in future developments of Alberta’s newest City.  

Known for impressive homes on spacious lots, Chestermere is committed to ensuring that the community maintains a high quality character and appearance. The change to the bylaw will ensure that while there is an increase in the diversity of housing options, these new smaller residential options will add to the charm of the community.

“There are so many professional, retail, and commercial opportunities in Chestermere,” says Jean-Marc Lacasse, the City’s Economic Development Manager. “Adding a wider range of housing opportunities for the people who can work in these locations is another piece of the puzzle to create a diverse community with strong non-residential components.” 

The City anticipates that the first development areas that could incorporate this housing option would be the new neighbourhoods being planned on the western edge of the community. With Area Structure Plans recently approved and a number of Outline Plans currently in the review process, construction could begin in as little as two years.
