  • Good afternoon, and welcome to the Town of Stony Plain’s 2014 Builders’ and Developers’ Reception.It is wonderful to see so many of you here today.
  • Builders and developers play a significant part in Stony Plain’s healthy growth and community spirit.
  • On behalf of Council, administration and our residents, we thank you for the many invaluable contributions you make to our community.
  • The current Council, which was formed last October, has a new vision and aspirations for Stony Plain, and we are eager to share these ideas with you.
  • Before I continue, I’d like to introduce my colleagues on Town Council:
  • Councillor Judy Bennett;
  • Councillor Dwight Ganske;
  • Councillor Russ Graff;
  • Councillor Pat Hansard;
  • Councillor Bruce Lloy; and
  • Deputy Mayor Robert Twerdoclib.
  • As we move through our four-year term, we want to encourage innovative approaches to residential, commercial and industrial development in Stony Plain.
  • But this must be done in a well-managed, responsible way, to ensure the long-term health and sustainability of our community….
  • …and to preserve our unique culture and rich heritage.
  • The Town has been developing the community’s new Municipal Development Plan since May of 2012.
  • The MDP establishes a clear vision for Stony Plain and is our road-map for the next 20 to 30 years.
  • That vision was determined, in large part, by the members of this community - our residents, businesses and other stakeholders…,
  • …because the only way to ensure this road-map accurately reflects the community is to engage those impacted by our decisions.
  • Many of you have reviewed the MDP and provided us with your feedback, ideas and suggestions.
  • This is an important time for our community, and we thank you for joining the conversation.
  • The MDP not only outlines policies to accommodate growth, it balances land use priorities with cultural, social, environmental and economic considerations.
  • After a more-than one-year process, the Plan is nearly ready.
  • One of the key themes of the MDP is: “We are a community.”
  • It elaborates: “We have housing choices for all. It feels like home, because it’s safe and healthy.“Stony Plain neighbourhoods are attractive, well-maintained and have their own character.”
  • The MDP is clear that any redevelopment in stable areas must be consistent with the character of existing neighbourhoods.
  • It also provides clear directives on what the Town expects when it comes to developing new neighbourhoods.
  • We need – and welcome – your professional input, innovative ideas and critical suggestions into what this looks like.
  • Your expertise will help ensure a mutual understanding of how development can happen in ways that are progressive and creative, while aligning with the expectations and standards our residents desire and expect.
  • After the MDP is approved, Administration will review the Town’s Land Use Bylaw…
  • …– a major implementation tool of the MDP.
  • Throughout the years, the Town has stayed true to its roots and core values.
  • But over time, as changes inevitably come, and our residents’ needs evolve,
  • we must be open to reinterpretation of these values - to keep them relevant,
  • because unwillingness to look at our valueswith a fresh perspective…
  • will ultimately stunt growth.
  • Stony Plain boasts a population of 16 000-plus, with an area comprising nearly 36 square-kilometres. with an area comprising nearly 36 square-kilometres.
  • Our community has grown exponentially since 1989 and has been designated a priority growth area within the Capital Region.In fact, the population is expected to more-than-double by 2032.
  • The most-recent data confirms what we suspected: people are attracted to this community and what it has to offer.
  • Why do people move to, and live in, Stony Plain?People are attracted to our community for many reasons; here are just a few…
  • Competitive taxes, affordability, strong governance and quality public services
  • a host of recreation, leisure and family amenities; an ideal location…
  • It’s location, proximity to major markets and transportation hubs and hospitality to business;
  • An emerging cultural scene and our rich heritage….but most of all…
  • a strong sense of connection… physically and socially.
  • Development in Stony Plain remained steady in 2013.
  • New building permit values totalled more than $46.8 million.
  • The Town issued 13 permits for commercial, industrial and institutional development, for a combined value of more than $12.5-million.
  • TD Canada Trust started building its local branch and just opened its doors threeweeks ago,....
  • ... the $7-million Freson Brothers Fresh Market opened last March, a wonderful addition to our community
  • These, and other, developments in the area are helping to establish the gateway to Old Town.
  • Maintaining our downtown core is a very important priority for us.
  • We want to nurture the vitality and spirit of this area by encouraging appropriate in-fill development and ensuring any downtown development reflects or enhances its long-standing ambiance and vitality.
  • A variety of other commercial or industrial projects were completed or started in 2013, including the $1.58-Million Atim Creek Centre in the South Business Park.
  • Serviced commercial lots of varying sizes are available within the North and South Business Parks and other locations, with a combined construction value of more than $4.8 million.
  • Flexible zoning in these areas allows for various types of land uses
  • Flexible zoning in these areas allows for various types of land uses – from commercial and light-industrial uses…
  • …to manufacturing and from service industries to large-scale office environments.
  • As for residential development, housing starts in 2013 were nearly on par with 2012.
  • The Town issued 174 permits for new starts,…
  • …with a construction value of more than $34.2 million.
  • As you know, the Province made changes to Alberta’s New Home Buyer Protection Act, which came into effect on February 1.
  • Most of you have a better understanding of what is all involved with the new home warranty coverage than I do; however, I do want to emphasize that the Town cannot accept any building permit application…
  • …that does not include acceptable proof of the required warranty coverage, which is the New Home Warranty Registry Approval Certificateyou receive from the Alberta Government upon approval.
  • No other forms of proof of warranty coverage will be accepted.
  • On the Town’s website, you can find a list of all paperwork we require, before a permit application for new home construction can be reviewed.
  • More information about the new home warranty program is available at homewarranty.ablerta.ca or municipalaffairs.alberta.ca.
  • The Town encourages construction of homes that help keep residents safer from high-intensity residential fires.
  • Improvements to the provincial building and fire codes are aimed at buying time for people to get out of their homes and for firefighters to respond.
  • The Town supports the changes to the Alberta Building Code, which are now in effect; these include: adding new fire-resistance requirements for homes built close together, improving sprinkler or exterior siding requirements for walk-up apartments and adding new fire-resistance requirements for the interior of attached garages.
  • The new codes are being implemented two years ahead of expected national code changes, and they will help minimize the severity, frequency and damage caused by fire and increase security and fire safety on construction sites.
  • Another area where Stony Plain is experiencing growth is economic development…,
  • …as more and more business-owners discover why Stony Plain is a great place to start or expand a business.
  • Stony Plain ranked 11th in Alberta Venture’s list of top communities for business in 2013.Strong population growth, reasonable tax rates, and competitive land prices are some factors that distinguished us. (our residential and industrial tax rates are some of the lowest in the Capital Region).
  • One-hundred-and-nineteen businesses purchased business licences for the first time in 2013.
  • And the Town issued 1 119 local and Tri-Municipal business licences in 2013 - 897 and 222, respectively.
  • We continued to implement the Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan in 2013, and the Growth and Commerce Committee pursues business development in Stony Plain.
  • The Town and Chamber jointly acknowledged more than 70 local businesses through the Business Recognition Program, which recognizes new ventures and those reaching significant milestones. If you are a new business, or, have been around for 5, 10, 15, 20 years or more, let us know, and we’ll congratulate you with an in-person visit.
  • As development continues, and businesses set up and expand here, companies are recruiting our talented and diverse work-force to keep them in the community.
  • There are now nearly as many residents in Stony Plain under the age of 18 as there are over the age of 65, according to the latest data.
  • This means that we have a healthy demographic for our growth.
  • And by creating a variety of housing options, you – the builders and developers in our community – play a significant role in keeping that growing labour force right here in Stony Plain.
  • Several major infrastructure projects were undertaken last year, in accordance with the Town’s 10-year Capital Improvements Plan.
  • We invested more than half-a-million dollars in 2013 to replace sanitary sewers and water mains…
  • …fix sidewalks, curbs and gutters; pour new asphalt surfaces; and install street lights along Golf Course Road.
  • We completed the $7-million Boulder Blvd. Reconstruction Project, much to the delight of area businesses and their clients and customers,
  • And we opened the $2.3-million 28 Street expansion.
  • The new street provides alternate access to the South Business Park, reduces congestion at the South Park Drive/43rd Avenue intersection and enhances efforts to market prime commercial land on either side of 28 Street.
  • We invested $1.9-million into North Park Drive, reconstructing and widening the street. This has improved traffic access and publicsafety.
  • The project will be finished in 2014, and hopefully we can start work on South Park Drive this year.
  • We also expanded our trail system in 2013 and have
  • made it mandatory for developers to include trails and parks in their plans.
  • The Municipality is healthy financially, relative to its comparators.
  • A 2012 audit confirms balanced budgets, healthy-to-moderate reserves, minimal debt, low taxes, controlled-spending and an established track-record of sound financial-planning, management and reporting.
  • Our tax-rates – both residential and non-residential -
  • …are among most competitive in the Capital Region.
  • As you can see, 2013 was certainly an exciting year!
  • And much will be accomplished in 2014.Let me share just a few initiatives that may be of interest to you.
  • One project we are very excited about is the new community/convention centre at Heritage Park.
  • While no plans have been approved as of yet, several reports provide solid justification for this facility, and turning this dream into reality remains a top priority.
  • We need to build a new RCMP facility, as our existing building no longer meets the needs of our community and is falling apart.
  • Working closely with our partners will make this happen.
  • Several other major projects are in the works for 2013
  • As Council, we recognize our responsibility to not only strive to meet the needs of residents today but to also consider the needs of future generations by ensuring appropriate long-term strategies are in place.
  • At our strategic planning session earlier this year, we whittled down 135 priorities to the top-10 we want to focus on during this four-year term.
  • I am proud of what we accomplished in 2013 and…
  • …look forward to the opportunities and…
  • …challenges that await us ahead in 2014 and beyond.
  • As we move through this year…
  • we remain focused on delivering programs and services…
  • at the highest possible level, while….
  • …ensuring we always live within our means.To accomplish this,…
  • …we must all work together - as government, as builders and developers, as a community and as a region.
  • The Town wants to work with you in developing our community and welcomes your continued input.We’ll launch a public and stakeholder participation process later this year to help streamline how we interact and make decisions.
  • People have many different reasons for choosing to live in Stony Plain, and our community continues to be an attractive choice in which to raise a family, work or retire.
  • Because of what you do to help enhance the quality of life for our residents…
  • ….it’s always better in Stony Plain!
  • Thank you for investing in our community.We look forward to working with you in 2014 and in the many years to come.
  • Thank you, and
  • …good evening.
