KAMLOOPS - The public will get their say on whether a new hotel in Aberdeen should get to move forward.
Local hotel developer Kulwant Sangha applied for a development variance permit to allow a building of five stories to be built. City bylaws currently only allow for a four storey building at 1529 Hugh Allan Dr.
At a meeting this week, city councillors approved the staff recommendation for a public hearing on the variance permit.
City development director Marvin Kwiatkowski told councillors the developer did not have designs for the hotel yet because he was waiting for the variance permit.
“Those will be available for the development permit application,” Kwiatkowski says.
Sangha, who has developed other hotels in the area, is planning a five-storey complex. The concept plan submitted to the city is not finalized, but suggests the hotel will have roughly 30 rooms. Sangha has previously said the project could break ground as soon as this fall.
