The proposed Costco Warehouse in Lloydminster is still in official limbo, but nearby construction activity has some believing the project is ready to roll out.
That earthmoving activity between 73 Ave. and75 Ave., north of the proposed Costco site at the corner of 12 St. and 75 Ave., has some people mistaking it for that project.
“The city hasn’t confirmed Costco is coming to town,” said a City of Lloydminster reply to an email inquiry from the Meridian Source on June 20 following speculative comments circulating in the city.
The city has yet to issue any development permits for the proposed warehouse project.
“Some people may be confusing an online article that mentions the city and Costco,” said the statement.
The City of Lloydminster has a contract with a Saskatoon company to transport some of the clay excavated in a Lake K stormwater stormwater project near the Cenovus Energy Hub to that active construction zone that’s also south of 29 Street, west of the Lakeshore Estates development.
Upon completion of the work, that site will be available for future development through the installation of municipal underground servicing, shallow utilities, and surface works construction.
Another same-day email inquiry sent to a contact at the general contracting company for the proposed Costco project, generated more questions than answers.
“Sorry, I don’t have any information to share on this project,” said the official.
