The City has been the primary developer of land since 1960 when the early stages of Crescent Heights were developed. A major Land Assembly and Development Agreement was entered into between the City and the Province which involved the development of 675 acres of the former jail farm which was intended to be developed for residential housing purposes. The agreements represent the extent of residential development to date in the Crescent Heights, Carlton Park and Crescent Acres areas and there are approximately 150 acres which have yet to be developed.
Development levies are charged to new developments to cover the costs of a growing city including new roadways, underground sewer systems and parks. Levies are not charged for developments in existing neighborhoods where these services have already been paid for. The amount of the levy recommended for Prince Albert was determined following a study that reviewed the costs of development, future growth projections and existing levies in other cities.
The objective of the design standards are to provide clear standards to designers regarding the design of infrastructure in the City of Prince Albert and to ensure that infrastructure built for the City of Prince Albert meets community quality of life expectations by being safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing, while protecting the environment and having reasonable life cycle costs.
