The Galloway Lands new Application

Handshake Holdings has returned to the RDEK with a new Application for Land Use Amendment. 

Handshake Holdings has been busy the past several months with consultation and making improvements to the application.  The goal to have the best plan possible that blends the social, economic and environmental interests of the community.  

The new submission addresses the concerns raised at the previous RDEK Planning Committee meeting, and in consultation with stakeholders, we make amendments to the plan including: 

 • Confirming commitment to connect to community services, including sewer, water, and fire flow
• Confirming an option for alternate access to the property
• Confirming an option for ownership management of the park zoned lands
• Requesting revision to proposed zoning designations to accommodate a higher density
 • Confirming our commitment to implement all recommendations identified in the B. A. Blackwell & Associates Ltd. report regarding fire safety 

The amended plan has been submitted to the RDEK Planning Committee and is seeking recommendation for a public hearing this Winter. 

We thank everyone for their previous comments and feedback and are excited to have submitted our new plan.
