Highlights of January 9 Council meeting

January 10, 2023

​​​​​​​Rutland rental housing

A rezoning was considered by Council for a six-storey apartment building with 83 rental housing on three lots, 285 & 305 Dougall Rd N & 365 McIntosh Rd. Final adoption is contingent on Council’s consideration of a Development Permit at a later date.

Upper Mission multifamily

Council agreed to hold a public hearing around a rezoning application for a development adjacent to Kuiper's Peak Mountain Park. The proposal at 949 Hewetson Court is part of The Ponds neighbourhood and includes 31 townhomes. An Area Structure Plan for The Ponds neighbourhood was adopted by Council in 2007 and has included several phases. Council gave first reading and forwarded the proposal to the February 14 public hearing.

Pandosy Waterfront Park

Council heard that staff successfully received two grants for Pandosy Waterfront Park, including $390,925 from the Provincial Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program and $750,000 from the Federal Canada Community Revitalization Fund. One grant will fund an elevated pier and handrail, and paddle buoys, while the other will go towards accessibility and inclusivity features at the park.

Kelowna Springs golf course

Coun. Luke Stack brought a notice of motion to Council, asking to amend the 2040 Official Community Plan to change the future land use designation of the Kelowna Springs golf course to the private recreational designation from industrial designation. A draft motion is expected to come before Council on Monday, January 16.
