Pass Herald Reporter
Development in the Crowsnest Pass is showing moderate growth this year and Coleman, accounting for 40 per cent of all development applications, is leading the way.
Development officer Ken Bourdeau, presented the encouraging report at a council meeting on July 8. Bourdeau said the total value of this year’s building projects amount to about $8.5 million plus about $51,000 in renovation work.
The total value of projects in 2013 was about $9.4 million.
“Even though we’re only halfway through the year, we’re 92 per cent of the way towards meeting our 2013 numbers,” said Bourdeau.
In addition, the number of development permits has been steadily rising. The municipality has received a total of 78 development permits, up from 67 at this time last year, which was up from the 48 they received in 2012.
“So we’re booming, I guess you could say,” quipped Bourdeau.
The report states that 74 permit applications have been approved this year. One is awaiting a decision from council, one was not approved but the decision was appealed and two are awaiting additional information from the applicant.

Council has approved nine residential family dwellings, three multi-unit projects, two additions and one secondary suite.
Twenty-nine new commercial projects have been approved, 19 of them are for home occupations but two of the projects include a mixed-use hotel/restaurant and an office building.
The report also states that there were 471 active business licences in the community as of June 31. Twenty-three of those businesses have not paid their business licence invoices or have failed to inform the municipality of their relocation or closure.
