New Local Shopping Centre

Im all for a development for a new shopping centre in Kelowna, but to add this to one of the most chatic intersections in the city sounds like a nightmare. I still believe this intersection requires an overpass and not just an extra lane, then throw this into the mix and it sounds like we better start planning the next intersection upgrade.

I would like to see the sliver of ALR that they would like to get rezoned.
If it is the remainder of lot 11 and 12 that is a big chunk of land on the east side of Rutland road.

What good is a small piece of infertile non productive, and not viable as use for agriculture?

It's most likely the piece behind the properties up to the new Rutland Rd. which would be the West side.

ktowner have you even been out there lately? The intersection I think you are talking about is no longer and there is a new roundabout to the East where the new Rutland Rd ends.

I worked in that area for many years and think this would be a good thing.

Don't see much use for that in an industrial area.

Yes thanks, BUT lot 11 and 12 are part of the land consolidation across the road.
That is why they are called remainders.

That would require taxpayer's support and municipal support. Aren't our funds stretched far enough? The community gardens that are already here are falling into disrepair and the one I walked by in November was wreaking of rotting left-over good intentions.
Who would ever want to start a community garden next to a highway that was constantly spraying it with pollution? Ever eaten a carrot that tasted like diesel?
As for a park......who would go there and sit between 2 major roadways to enjoy nature and a little peace and quiet? Where are you going to park? Who would risk their safety by sitting in an area that a major accident could happen at any moment?
Sorry, bad idea. Good try though.
At least a new commercial development would generate tax income, this is a no brainer.

I agree with you Alan.

But if it is the land in question you get cheap ALR rezoned and now put building d and e in there and BINGO
huge money.

Before that, however, council has to approve a “minor OCP amendment” to remove a “sliver” of the of property from its current agriculture designation.


Lol - given recent events - this I'm sure is a slam dunk but a very minor technicality. Big questions should be raised if it isn't. Meanwhile, other single parcel ALR properties, surrounded by development in other parts of Kelowna that have been trying for years to have them removed continue to be stonewalled.

Maybe the owners didn't make the correct "campaign contributions"?
