Hythe Pioneer Homes is seeking a development permit for the construction of a supportive living facility south of Hythe Continuing Care, said Leona Hanson, Hythe chief administrative officer (CAO). 

Pioneer Homes made the application within the past few weeks and subdivision and rezoning would be needed before construction can begin, she said. “We’re in the process of reviewing the subdivision and rezoning application,” Hanson said.

TOWN & COUNTRY NEWS

With the province continuing to re-open, many will wonder what relaxed restrictions mean for those most vulnerable to COVID-19, seniors. 

“Because they’re so vulnerable, the (relaunch) for seniors will be far slower,” said Chris Perrin, Hythe & District Pioneer Homes Advisory Committee chairperson. 

“We’ll have to take it step-by-step and day-by-day (and) there hasn’t been a lot of relaxation in any of the seniors’ health care rules.”

A Sexsmith beekeeping operation has been stung by a recent hive theft. 

The theft of nine hives belonging to Moondance Honey Inc. was discovered on May 11.

The nine stolen hives were among 18 in a location on the Teepee Creek highway east of Sexsmith.

“A couple weekends ago we drove by there … and half of the hives were gone,” says Bill Termeer, owner of Moondance Honey. 

“When we looked closer, we found out that they’d stolen the nine best hives of the 18.”

It was the end of an era Monday as the Hythe & District Agricultural Society demolished the remains of the Hythe & District Swimming Pool with volunteer help. Colton Hewitt pitched in with digging up the old pool.
