Penticton city council gave their unanimous approval for the 84-unit development of the former Kampe estate on Green Avenue.
The 84-unit townhouse project will have a mix of 44 two-bedroom units and 40 three-bedroom units split across 10 buildings.
The project went to a brief public hearing on Monday, June 20 where one person raised questions about the accessibility of the homes.
Coun. Julius Bloomfield did make a comment regarding his disappointment with how the developer had responded to council’s questions regarding storage space, and expressed his hopes for further improvements to the plans.
Coun. James Miller raised the question of consultation with the Penticton Indian Band, and he was informed that the city had not received a formal reply to their information regarding the application.
“I think this is a case of compromise and the developer taking the public input and public comments,” said Miller. “I can’t speak for my fellow councillors, but I don’t recall hearing or receiving any objections to this, so it appears that the neighbourhood is more than happy and content.”
The project received approval for the zoning and Official Community Plan bylaw amendments it was seeking in a unanimous vote.
