The Carp Airport development has taken another step forward.
The Carp Airport.
West Capital Developments, the company behind the project, has signed a $500,000 deal with Kanata-based Clearford Industries Inc. (TSXV: CLI) to license Clearford’s SBS wastewater collection system.
While residents at the development, around 34 km from downtown, will have water provided by the city they will have a private sewage treatment system.
"For privately owned and operated sewage treatment systems, the SBS System provides a cost effective collection network, which lowers the capital cost and long term operating costs of sewage treatment" said Kevin Loiselle, president and CEO of Clearford in a press release.
This will be the first Clearford wastewater system installed in Ottawa.
“The proximity of the site will allow Clearford to showcase our SBS system to both local and international customers visiting our office,” said Mr. Loiselle in the statement.
Construction is projected to begin in spring 2014.
The Carp Airport development has been in the works for over 10 years. Initially planned as a gated fly-in community, that plan was dropped after Sheldon Creek, Orangeville-based developer and property management company, purchased West Capital Developments. In August, Sheldon Creek’s owner, Andrew Wildeboer told OBJ that he didn’t see enough of a market for a fly-in community.
The current development plan calls for 354 residential units and a 188-acre business park.
Some properties will have airport access, and will be marketed to recreational pilots and frequent business travelers.
Lots will range from the low $100,000s for 50 feet by 150 feet, to over $200,000 for larger properties.
