Subdivision and Site Plan
Where is Hunt Coulee Village
Hunt Coulee Village is located less than a kilometer west of the junction of Bearspaw Road and Big Hill Springs Road/Highway 567.
The Village is within 15 minutes driving from major urban centres of Airdrie, Cochrane and Calgary; 30 minutes from the Calgary Foothills Hospital and 10 minutes from the Bearspaw Fire Hall/EMS on I-A Hwy.
Also within proximity are a number of provincial parks, golf courses and recreation facilities.
Residential Surrounded by Ranch Lands
- Bungalow style single family and Villa residences will range from 1000-1800 square feet.
- Lot pricing is estimated at an average price of $300,000, per lot.
- Lots will generally be 46.5 feet wide and 140 feet deep.
- Many lots will be compatible with a walkout basement design.
- All lots will back onto green space.
The project will be governed by a comprehensive set of architectural controls to preserve the scale and character of the residences.
It is anticipated home and personal support services will be offered through fee for service contractors and may include such services as personal care, housekeeping, home maintenance, delivery services, escorted shopping, pre-made meals and companion care. In addition, safety alert systems and informal 'neighbour helping neighbour' networks will be developed. Programs and activities are based on wellness, lifelong learning, recreation, fitness, community involvement and are designed to appeal to residents of different ages and abilities.
2. Health Care Services
Health care services are anticipated to be offered on site through visiting health care professionals and educators. The Bearspaw Fire/EMS station is within close proximity to emergency medical support. A community emergency response planning and training program will be offered.
3. Transportation Services
It is anticipated that a wheelchair accessible Hunt Coulee Village vehicle will provide assisted transportation services as well as coordination with Rocky View Handi-Bus services. Informal carpooling will be encouraged among Hunt Coulee Village residents. The Calgary transit Tuscany Station is located 15 minutes from Hunt Coulee Village.
On site wells will supply water. Well tests support 60 units. Another 60 units may be developed when additional water supply is available. For the greenhouse, plans for rain water harvesting will be used to partially offset the water demand. Housing design will incorporate low flush toilets and other water saving technologies.
b) Wastewater system
Soil tests support on-site sewage disposal. High efficiency state of the art “Orenco Advantex” wastewater system is planned. The system is designed to meet stringent regulatory requirements and for properties and communities that are not hooked up to city sewers.
c) Storm water
A storm water system will be designed to meet the latest code and design guidelines. The HCV site development plan is designed to fit the natural lay of the land, minimize the disruption to the natural storm drainage flow and to maintain ponds as they exist naturally for storm water collection.
d) Natural gas
Will be supplied through the Cochrane Lake Co-op who have a capital plan to bring gas to the general area and electrical provided through Fortis.
It is anticipated that up to 50 percent of the Village will remain as green space and include nature walking trails that promote an active lifestyle.
