A developer in the process of constructing a 4,000 square-foot building on Main Street Rimbey is hopeful it won’t stay vacant long.

Al Ingles, who owns Birch Meadows Holdings Ltd., plans to construct the exterior of the building and complete the inside once it has been sold or leased.

“We can finish it to suit them (the occupant),” he said. “We’ll wait and see what happens there. You never know who might wander in.”

The building now under construction is located on the west side of the Rimbey Review office.

Ingles has also developed residential subdivisions in Rimbey.

Rimbey’s assistant CAO, Ryan Maier, said there have been 12 development permits issued in town so far this year. Ingles’ building and an office building to accommodate an expansion by Gibson Energy were the only development permits issued for new commercial buildings. The other development permits were for residential and commercial renovations.

Maier said last year 234 business licenses were issued compared to 224 this year.

“We are only into May,” he said. “We are holding steady as far as business licences go.”

New businesses need to obtain a license, but don’t need a building permit, he added.
