The municipality is seeking creative proposals for a vacant municipal property.

A Request for Proposals has been issued for the former RCMP site, at 8709 Jubilee Road East.

“Summerland is looking forward to having this vacant property redeveloped with much-needed affordable housing,” said Mayor Peter Waterman. “We want to work with developers to move this forward.”

At present, the property is zoned for Residential Pocket Neighbourhoods, but the municipality welcomes all applications.

Municipal council members and staff will look for affordability of the homes, the development as a whole, green building practices, the time period for the work and the revenue for the municipality.

The Request for Proposal is on the municipal website at summerland.ca and closes on Friday, May 29 at 2 p.m.

Those who want additional information are asked to contact Ian McIntosh, director of development services at 250-404-4048.
