Main Street West motel undergoing expansion


Another Huntsville business is growing.

Huntsville’s Planning Committee heard at its June 13 meeting that the Highland Court Inn and Suites has demolished two of its units at 208 Main Street West and plans on replacing them with a six-unit building.

The lot has an area of about 6,200 square metres and 85 metres of frontage on Main Street West. It currently houses three buildings containing a total of 15 motel units, an office, and a shed.

The owner is proposing to replace two recently demolished single unit motel rental units with a larger 219.6m² six-unit building. The development will be serviced by municipal water and sewer services and the site plan meets all the requirements of the zoning bylaw for the property, including parking requirements, setbacks and building height, Town Planner Curtis Syvret told committee. He also said the shed would be torn down as part of the site plan agreement.

Committee heard that the Town’s Accessibility Advisory Committee has also made recommendations that will be incorporated into the new build.

Deputy Mayor Karin Terziano asked what the type of accommodation would be. Syvret responded that the six-unit building would be used as a motel. “So it’s a tourist establishment building,” he said.

“That’s exciting, that particular project,” said Councillor Nancy Alcock who chairs the committee.

The site plan was approved by committee. Their recommendation will be forwarded to Huntsville Council for final approval.

  1. My ex-father-in-law built this motel 70 years ago. I’ve seen pictures of it being built. It’s lasted a long time and it’s good to see it modernized.
