SHELBURNE OPTS FOR SEMI-MOUNTABLE CURB TO FIX GRADING ISSUE IN SUMMERHILL SUBDIVISION
5/18/2017 5:08:55 PM


Shelburne's Mayor is giving the Vandyk Group of Companies a failing grade.


Council learned last month that more than 50 homeowners on Cook Crescent in the Summerhill subdivision were experiencing flooding because of a grading issue.


Vandyk built the houses four inches too low, causing rain water to drain back towards their garages.


Ken Bennington is upset because they can't hold the developer accountable.


   


He would like to work towards creating some type of penalty.


But in the meantime, the Town's Contract Development Engineer Jack Tupling says council can double check numbers.


   


To fix the problem, a semi-mountable curb will be installed to gain back about three and a half inches to even the houses with the street.


Council decided not to lower the street because ripping it up would put the infrastructure in the ground at risk by lowering the frost line and damaging water mains.


The fix will cost about $700,000, which will be paid by the developer.


The work is expected to take about six weeks and it will be done sometime this summer.
