4 public hearings in Penticton on Tuesday

One industrial property is located at the corner of Carmi Avenue and Dartmouth Road

A proposal to turn an empty Penticton wrecking yard into industrial warehouses is set to get feedback at its upcoming public hearing on Feb. 1.

The property in question, located at the corner of Penticton’s Carmi Avenue and Dartmouth Road, is already surrounded by other industrial zoned properties.

If approved by city council, development of industrial warehouses on the 4.3 acres of land is expected to follow.

The proposed rezoning is one of four bylaws set to have a public hearing on Feb. 1.

Among the other proposals set to make it to public hearings include the subdivision of a property on the west side of Maple Street, north of Westminster Avenue West. The applicant is proposing to divide the land in question into two lots before building a two-story duplex.

Further, the proposed construction of a two-story, three-unit townhouse at 30 Okanagan Avenue will also be presented to council and left up for debate.

The theme of rezoning in residential areas will continue when the city is presented with a proposal that intends to create two duplex lots on 79 Okanagan Avenue West.

City council gatherings were officially moved to an online-only format on Jan. 12, amid COVID-19 concerns.

To view the Feb. 1 public hearings next week, the city is asking people to visit their website to electronically attend the meetings.
