History of CORNERSTONE
More Than 100 years ago, the Gamble family had a dream and homesteaded on property immediately to the west of Muir Lake. This property was chosen for the availability of both adjacent water and abundant wood.
When starting anew in Canada, the Gamble family was conservative in their farming approach, utilizing good stewardship practices. This stewardship continued through four generations, for more than 100 years.
Like the Gamble Homesteaders and with the present family blessing, this development will encompass historical characteristics while enhancing up-to-date environmental benefits.
These enhancements will include recommended sustainability energy sources, including solar power and geothermal systems. Besides placing all services underground, all approaches to the lots will have solar-powered lighting posts and individual addressing. This solar powered entrance feature is placed at the developers expense and will provide ambient lighting of the roadways.
Also, the present walking and Cross Country ski paths connecting the Parklet benches and boardwalks will be maintained. And, with Parkland County’s approval, one of the Parklets would provide a plaque honoring the Gamble Family History at the original school site. Further study is planned for the placement of a Private Communication Tower for the benefit of Cornerstone residents.
