Unwanted Apartments Going Up

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Though more than 500 local residents have opposed it, a 70-unit apartment complex is still going up in Lethbridge's Indian Battle Heights.

Because the complex is directly across the street from an Mike Mountain Horse School, neighbours are concerned of the traffic the complex will bring to already-busy Jerry Potts Boulevard. In addition, citizens are opposed to the three stories the complex boasts.

When Woodsmere Holdings Corporation, the developer of the new buildings, discovered residents had appealed the submission of the three-storey, two-building complex to the Municipal Planning Commission, they came back with a redesign which lowered the stories, but increased the buildings to four.

However, WHC couldn't afford to build the complex without keeping one of the units at three stories, and this is what some neighbours are still concerned about. The MPC has approved the resubmission on condition that a fence be built to deter elementary students from using the property as a shortcut to school, and that the three-story unit be redesigned to minimise its impact on the environment.

If the complex had been denied again, then property owner and Lethbridge Ninth Ward member Barry Marquardson would have put up a shopping complex. The empty property, which currently borders a gas station, a car wash and a recycling drop-off, had been approved for the mall years ago.

Local residents have two weeks to oppose the new decision.
