In Development

Fir Street Development

Project Overview

In October 2022, Strathcona County awarded Heartland Housing Foundation the parcel of land known as the former Clover Bar Lodge site on Fir Street. The intended use of the land, per the County's Expression of Interest, is to continue providing intergenerational near-market housing options for the community. In order to actualize this vision, the site requires rezoning from its current use of Public Services (PS) to a Direct Control (DC) district.

The Land Use Amendment application was submitted to Strathcona County on October 6th, 2023 and is currently undergoing internal review.
