Regina city council unanimously approved the Chuka Creek business park last week at city hall.
The site would consist of mainly warehousing, trucking and distribution firms. There will also be farm equipment dealers and service companies in the location.
Mayor Michael Fougere says the business park could also see some expansion.
“This one is more focused on primary production of agriculture products,” Fougere says. “They can expand to something different later on. Given the really tight definition of what this will look like, it looks really good right now, we’re very positive, and very pleased with it.”
Residents from Greens on Gardiner are worried about night-time noise coming from a flour mill. Mayor Michael Fougere says this issue is being addressed.
“If it is a fan, which I understand that’s what it is, there are ways to lessen that impact,” Fougere said. “There’s different technologies that can be used, and I’m sure the owner, as far as I understand, is willing to listen to this and make some changes.”
Bylaw officers did not find the noise was in any contravention of existing bylaws. The company has said it will find ways to decrease the noise.
