Com twitter Colli Gallant the Cit yes land department has made provisions for telecommunications lines to be installed in its newest subdivision after telus had apparently declined servicing salamis Heights phase 7 with Hartline cables. However a telus spokesperson says the company is interested in the area and plans to schedule new meetings soon. Typically in a new Community All Utility lines Are installed at the same time to save costs and for convenience rather than retrofitting Cable under roads and around other lines. However senior administrators told the news this week they were surprised by correspondence this Spring from the phone television and internet provider declining the Opportunity to put in cables. As a Public Developer it concerned us said Keith crush acting general manager of the land department. So we made the decision to have empty conduit installed throughout in Case telus or another telecommunications company wants to service the area. Crush said the City confirmed the lusts unusual stance there has been no correspondence since and other municipalities had also reported a reluctance by the company to sink Cable into new developments. Telus officials told the news this week they hoped to schedule meetings with the City soon about servicing the Community West of South Ridge drive. They also said holding off laying Cable until houses Are closer to completion is a matter of spending Money More efficiently. In Many cases weave built very expensive networks at the Early stages of development that be used for several years said Liz Sauve a spokesperson in the company is Headquarters in Vancouver. Were looking for a finer approach. The Rumour that were not connecting to the Cit yes development is certainly not True. That could occur via the conduit put in with other shallow utilities when the entire site was serviced this summer. Crush said there has not been any discussions about Cost recovery but that could be discussed in the future. Grading and lot development in salamis Heights phase 7 began in 2014. Several contractors contacted the news earlier this summer saying that telus was absent from Early planning meetings. Those would have scheduled and located the placement of so called shallow utilities infrastructure such As phone natural Gas and Power lines before lot and Road development. Crush said the Cost of adding conduit is nominal once a Trench is open but to retrofit them into entire blocks with developed Road surface it would be very Messy. Sauve said the company Hopes to meet soon with the City the Developer in this Case. She also said telus will install or upgrade $ 4.2 billion Worth of infrastructure this year in Alberta. The Large number requires a conscious Effort to schedule work properly to keep costs Down she said. The Cit yes land and properties department pricing strategy was presented to committee in late August. About two thirds of the 111 lots do not have Back Alley Access which would make underground Utility installation easier after the fact.
