After many years of development, the first reading of our Area Structure Plan was approved almost unanimously (6:1) by Kneehill County Council on March 12th, 2013. If adopted by Council, the Area Structure Plan will allow for the rezoning from Agricultural District to a Direct Control District to develop a comprehensive Motorsports Facility in Kneehill County.
Approval of our Area Structure Plan and rezoning application would approve the development of a 4.4 mile multi-configuration Road Course, Paddock, Commercial Development, Non-motorsport Recreational Development, and Residential Development.
We still have to go through a second reading (Public Hearing) of the Area Structure Plan, which is scheduled for June 11th, 2013. However, we feel that most issues regarding the development have been addressed in our Area Structure Plan and we are hopeful that we will obtain the approvals in June or July of 2013.
Construction could start as soon as the Spring of 2014 with the track opening in 2015.
We have thoroughly updated the FAQ section of our website to reflect all the recent developments and have included much more detailed information of the development, the planned amenities and the operation of the Road Course.

The Resort aims to be a key pit stop for its members and its visitors, and it will provide high value to the region, with many tangible and intangible benefits.
