Subdivision prep takes Little Mountain resident by surprise

Area residents notified by Timbro Contracting that construction on Quarry Road set to start Monday

A resident of Little Mountain was scrambling Monday to find out more about a new subdivision for 11 new detached homes going up in his neighbourhood.

Don Green said he saw the excavators and heavy equipment moving in Friday in preparation for the construction at 9910 Quarry Road.

Area residents received notification from Timbro Contracting on Dec. 8 that construction on the subdivision was to start Monday, Dec. 11 and run until Feb. 28.

“There will be heavy equipment movement by the access road to this development,” according to the Timbro notice.

They were told to expect heavy truck traffic and blasting during construction hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

City officials confirmed a rezoning hearing for the subdivision on Quarry Road had been held two years ago, and that earlier in 2017 a development permit had been approved. A environmental consultant’s study had also been completed.

Green said he did not see the original rezoning sign that went up or see the published public hearing notice. He’s worried about the stability of the mountainside.

“All of sudden all this heavy equipment showed up,” Green said.

He said he could see out his window was stumps and logs.

“It’s a terrible place for new homes and a subdivision. It’s sad,” he said.
