Chestermere Information 

a summary by Kevin Baldwin Chestermere Realtor

Chestermere Real Estate


            Chestermere is a city in the Canadian province of Alberta in the Rocky View County. The original name of Chestermere was Chestermere Lake. Chestermere is a member municipality of the Calgary Regional Partnership.

 

The population of Chestermere has seen a steady rise in the last many decades and more. As the number of residents in Chestermere has been rising, Chestermere real estate demand and Chestermere new homes for sale have also seen an upward movement in numbers.

 

Population of Chestermere


            The city of Chestermere has a population close to 20,000 people who live in a little over 6,000 private dwelling units. The Summer Village of Chestermere Lake officially changed its name and status on March 1, 1993 to the Town of Chestermere. Getting the status of a town gave more local and political authority to the residents. Amenities and services for the residents were continuously expanded by the town.

 

The population also continued to increase all through. Chestermere was the fastest growing Town in Alberta. The town council voted in 2014 in favor of pursuing a city status and with effect from January 1, 2015, Chestermere became a city. It was Alberta’s 18th city.

 

History of early settlement


            The area around today’s Chestermere was inhabited by only a few farmers prior to the 20thcentury. The Canadian Pacific Railway was set up in the 1880s. That saw a large number of people getting settled in the west. The settlers then wanted to make farming more productive. They began to look for ways to better irrigate their land.

 

Chestermere was a natural wetland. It was found to be a perfect source for irrigating the Western Irrigation Block. A dam and canal system was, accordingly, built by the year 1907. The wetland was developed into a lake and the farmers started using the water for irrigation purposes. Then came further rapid developments, which we shall cover below.

 

Summer village


            With developments on the irrigation front, people started using the lake for recreational purposes as well. They built cabins and started living at the lake in the summer months. They worked towards community development, provision of electricity and natural gas for the cabins and for controlling the pollution levels in the lake.

 

By 1977, the lake had 120 permanent homes and was given the official status as the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake on April 1, 1977. With this, further services, amenities, improved roads, street lights, community hall and golf course etc. got added here.

 

Town


            On March 1, 1993, the Summer Village of Chestermere Lake got transformed to the Town of Chestermere. More facilities got added and it became Chestermere City with effect from January 1, 2015.

 

Geographical neighborhoods


            Chestermere city is organized into fifteen neighborhoods with maximum being in the Southeast and Southwest, with Northwest and Northeast following in that order.

 

Transportation


            Trans-Canada Highway and Alberta Highway provide land access to Chestermere. The city of Chestermere is accessible by air through Chestermere (Kirkby Field) Airport.

Strathmore Real Estate

 

            Strathmore is a very likeable town located along the Trans-Canada Highway in Southern Alberta, Canada. It falls in Wheatland County and is nearly 50 kilometres (30 miles approximately) east of Calgary city. The population of Strathmore town has been steadily rising.

 

           With this rise in the number of residents, Strathmore real estate demand and Strathmore new homes for sale have also seen a rise.

 

Population of Strathmore


            The town of Strathmore has a population of over 13,000 people living in a little over 5,000 private dwelling units. Strathmore is amongst the largest towns in the province. It is eligible for the status of a city.

 

             As per Alberta’s Municipal Government Act, upon reaching a number of 10,000 residents, a town becomes eligible for a city status.

 

History of Strathmore


            In 1883, Strathmore town came up as a hamlet for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) lines. The town was named by the Canadian Pacific Railway after one of its benefactors, namely, Claude Bowes-Lyon, the Earl of Strathmore.

 

           Queen Elizabeth, the Earl’s granddaughter later passed through the community in the Royal Train in May 1939 as consort to King George VI.

 

Track laying record by Strathmore


            Strathmore was witness to a track laying record being made when the railroad between Strathmore and Cheadle was built. One mile (1.6 km.) of steel was laid in one hour and at the close of the ten-hour working day, rails running 9 miles (14 km.) upto Cheadle had been laid to make a record in track-laying.

 

           This was no small achievement at that time.

 

Development of Strathmore


            Canadian government’s efforts towards developing western Canada led to a rise in the population of Strathmore as it simultaneously also gained importance as a rail supply stop.    The Hamlet of Strathmore was moved 4 miles (6.4 km.) north to the current location by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the year 1905.

 

           Strathmore’s first school opened in 1908. Due to subdivision of land, the Canadian Pacific Railway’s railroad tracks are no more around. The Town of Strathmore celebrated its centennial in the year 2011.

 

The Economy of Strathmore           

            As on date, Strathmore town is a growing agricultural community. Interests in oil and gas exploration are also growing at Strathmore. The town is the headquarters of Golden Hills School Division No. 75.

 

            Strathmore has seen a steady commercial growth in the last few years. Many residents of Strathmore commute daily from the town to Calgary for work. Many franchise restaurants and big-box chain stores have also opened smart outlets at Strathmore.

 

           This has indeed been seen as a welcome development for the real estate sector where Strathmore real estate listings have seen a jump. Strathmore realtors are a happy lot as enquiries for Strathmore new homes for sale have also seen a rise.

 

Sports activities

            Strathmore has all along encouraged sportsmen and enthusiasts alike. It has been home to the Strathmore Wheatland Kings of the Heritage Junior “B” league in the past. The Strathmore Venom Junior “B” lacrosse team was founded in 2004 and it won the provincial title in 2010.

 

           Strathmore was also amongst the hosts for the 2013 Tour of Alberta Pro Cycling Festival. Annual Heritage Day celebrations at Strathmore include the Strathmore Stampede, a popular event.

 

Education at Strathmore


            As part of the Golden Hills School Division, Strathmore can proudly boast of the undernoted educational institutions:

  • Three elementary schools, namely, Wheatland, Westmount and Brentwood;
  • A junior high school, namely, Crowther Memorial Junior High School;
  • A high school by the name of Strathmore High School;
  • A Catholic School with Kindergarten till grade 6, namely, Sacred Heart Academy and
  • A grade 7 to 12 Catholic School by the name of Holy Cross Collegiate.

            Trinity Christian Academy, a Christian school with Kindergarten to grade 9 is a publicly funded institution which opened at Strathmore in September 2008 at the former Convenant Bible College property, which had to be closed down for reasons like dropping student enrollment and other financial issues.

Residents looking to downsize will soon be able to and stay in the city.
Council approved a change to the city’s Land Use Bylaw creating a new type of land use district which covers the smaller homes and lots, known in the bylaw as planned lots.
“The desire to offer a mix of housing types in order to stay a sustainable community is a vision that was built into the MDP, with the guidance of our resident committee,” said Chestermere’s Mayor Patricia Matthews.
While staff where consulting residents for the city’s Municipal Development Plan (MDP) update last year, residents told staff that the city has a lot of large family homes and expressed a desire for a smaller option.
The city does have several multi-family developments that offer a smaller option. With the resident’s feedback, staff wanted to expand the kinds and sizes of houses available in Chestermere.
“Residents love the ‘community’ feeling in their neighbourhoods but wanted more options for the types of houses they could choose to live in.
“More range and diversity in housing options became a top priority to achieve the City’s updated Municipal Development Plan vision,” said City of Chestermere Municipal Planner Jillian Geen.
The new planned lot district house will provide both residents and people looking to move to Chestermere smaller single family homes that will meet the needs of first-time home buyers.
These new houses will also provide young professionals and families a more affordable option.
Finally, these new housing products will give seniors in Chestermere and option to downsize while staying independent and in the community.
“The Planned Lots provides another option to current residents that may be seeking to be comfortable in Chestermere during different stages of their lives, as well keep our community attractive to new residents and employers,” said city Development Services Coordinator Jeffery Gibeau.
The decision by council to approve the new zoning came with a significant amount of debate as councilors wanted to ensure this was done right the first time.
“The challenge is to make sure that the intent of smaller houses on a smaller yard doesn’t get lost in a push from the market for large houses on a smaller yard- that can be found anywhere,” said Matthews.
“Now is the time to fine tune what that might look like in our neighbourhoods and we want to make sure it’s done right,” she said.
The approved changes also open the door to bungalows being built in the planned lot districts for both seniors and those residents with reduced mobility.
“We want a unique offering that reflects Chestermere values,” said Matthews.
With the approval at the May 1 council meeting, land owners and developers can now apply to the city to use the planned lot designation and can start building this new type of house in the city.
There are already new neighbourhoods being planned for the western edge of Chestermere which include planned lots in their proposals.

With the upcoming municipal election this October, things will be changing at city hall as Chestermerians will be electing a new Mayor and council.
As prospective candidates start to come forward with new ideas and campaign promises so too come the requests for campaign funding.
“While election campaigning is an exciting time for candidates it’s really important for them to remember that under the act they do have financial obligations to follow,” said City of Chestermere Legislative Coordinator Jillian Borsuk.
The Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) sets out the rules for municipal elections in Alberta.
Included in that are the regulations governing campaign financing.
“There’s a lot of regulations around things such as how you can fund your campaign, who can fund your campaign and how much they can contribute,” said Borsuk.
The LAEA also defines how a candidate can use the funds received for their campaign for public office. These rules also apply to what happens with surplus funds after the election is over.
To accept campaign contributions, a prospective candidate has to register their intent to run at city hall prior to accepting any form of campaign donation.
Currently there are five candidates for city council that have registered with the city and are eligible to start fundraising for their campaign should they wish to do so.
A candidate can accept donations from individuals, corporations and other organizations up to a maximum of $5000 in either cash or other services that have a set value per donation.
“So it’s really anything with a value,” said Borsuk, “it could be property space or room rental.”
Volunteering for a campaign is exempt from the campaigning financing rules however.
“And it’s also important for candidates to remember that receipts must be issued for every…contribution that’s made to their campaign,” said Borsuk.
Should a candidate drop out of the race or have a surplus after the election, the money raised for the campaign will either be held in trust for the next election or it can be donated to a charity of the candidate’s choice or added to the city’s general revenues,
Candidates are also allowed to self-finance their campaigns up to a limit of $10,000.
A key difference in a self-funded campaign is that no notice of intent is needed prior to nomination day.
The city encourages prospective candidates to familiarize themselves with the laws governing local elections.
Regardless of how a candidate plans to fund their campaign it is important to understand the election rules.
“It’s important to read up on it ‘cause it is a very detailed topic and there are a lot of regulations around it,” said Borsuk.
