Wheatlands is a Master Planned Community within the City of Aurora and has been successfully completed for Alberta Development. The Wheatlands consist of approximately 600 acres and is approved for 1553 residential units, commercial areas, a school site and a neighborhood activity center. The Contextual Site Plans (CSP’s) and Construction Plans for the infrastructure to service the Master Plan Community had been approved by completing 7 Filings of CSP’s and Construction Plans. The Construction Plans set included a Grading Plan, Overall Utility Plan, Sanitary Sewer Plan and Profiles, Signage and Stripping Plans, and Drainage Plans.

Our firm processed the Construction Plans for the Infrastructure being funded by the Wheatlands Metropolitan District. The District Infrastructure includes a four lane arterial road with super-elevation and a 36” water main, and four collector streets with water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer mains. The district infrastructure is schedule for approval in October of 2006. Along with processing the District Infrastructure plans, our firm also prepared and processed the CSP’s and Construction Plans for the next three of the remaining seven filings. All eight filings were approved by late summer 2006.

Our firm completed Construction Plans for two regional trails within the Master Planned Community. One trail, adjacent to the Murphy Creek Drainage way was designed to connect the neighborhoods to the onsite neighborhood activity center and to the trail along Smokey Hill Road which then provides access to the nearby Southlands Commercial Area. The second trail connects to the first at the neighborhood activity center, and then allows residents to travel to the east, through the Beacon Point Subdivision, to the Aurora Reservoir Trail system.
