Construction is underway for a new subdivision in Bentley.

Land moving equipment has moved in and construction on phase one of a new Bentley subdivision is now underway.

The plan from the company doing the Summersault Residential Development is for 33 townhouse lots and six single-family dwellings on the 7.7 acres included in phase one.

Market and economic conditions will dictate to the developer how fast expansion will take place.

Bentley town administration estimates servicing costs (water, sewer, roads) to be around a million dollars.

Town mayor Lynda Haarstad-Petten is excited to have growth happening.

The town annexed the 44 acres on the north-west side of Bentley at least 30 years ago and it has sat idle as farmland until now.
