Chestermere Gets Infrastructure Help From Developers

Rolfe Johannson

Qualico Communities and Anthem United came together in a brand new front-ending agreement with the City of Chestermere.

City of Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers looked at the symbiotic relationship between builders, and the municipalities, “That takes the pressure off our taxpayer’s, and we can use funding in other areas that we need to enhance instead of spending it on infrastructure. There are real benefits for them also because it is about them having the ability to work on their timeline, and purchasing powers. So there are a lot of benefits for them because they are in full control.”

The developers of Chelsea and Dawson’s Landing met with Mayor Chalmers this morning to sign an agreement to front end the costs to construct the Rainbow Road Sanitary Trunk in Chestermere.

This project will allow for the new developments to commence and serve up to 40,000 residents at full build-out.

Bob Faktor, Vice President, Land Development, Anthem United talked about the benefits of the infrastructure, “It will provide businesses opportunities to the future commercial and retail uses planned along Chestermere Boulevard.”

Chalmers went on to talk about the unique method of construction, “You have heard of the Chunnel? This technology allows for year-round construction. There is no disruption to the existing residences. They are going down 10 to 15 metres, and it is along the side of the road, so you don’t have to close the road.”
