An area is in limbo after multiple concerns have been brought up by Cardiff residents.
 
A few years ago, a developer purchased farmland south of Mill Road. The plan was to build luxury estate-like homes with fair-sized lots, but as consecutive open houses were held, residents said the planned lots and homes became smaller and concerns grew about the increased traffic on the quiet roads.
 
There were also questions raised about the placement of a park. According to draft plans for the new community, the park would be situated over top of a capped oil well that was decommissioned in the early 2000's.
 
Because of the concerns, Sturgeon County placed a moratorium on the development until an Area Structure Plan could be put in place.
 
"Typically, those are put in place to ensure that infrastructure is in place to support development," explained Sturgeon County senior communications officer, Sheila Moore.
 
Until that area structure plan is in place, the county confirmed residents will continue to enjoy their picturesque views with the occasional coyote or deer sighting.
