The RM of Hanover is once again asking the Province of Manitoba to allow it to expand the local urban districts of Mitchell and Blumenort.
In an Oct. 8 letter to the province’s municipal relations minister, CAO Luc Lahaie revisited Hanover’s attempt to expand the two LUDs back in 2015.
The province denied that attempt, citing the existence of undeveloped residential and commercial properties.
"This time…these properties will all be developed in 2020 and will require urban type services by their respective LUDs," Lahaie wrote.
In Blumenort, an active dairy operation on the community’s western boundary is proposed to be removed from the LUD, while 35 acres in Southview Developments is "under active development."
In Mitchell, an area in the northeast corner of town has been approved for a 200-unit modular home park which will access municipal services. The area also contains an existing commercial site, a portion zoned for future multi-family use, and a cemetery.
Lahaie said Wednesday he has yet to receive a response from the province to his letter.
