PENTICTON - The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen has put a conditional offer on a piece of property adjacent to the Naramata waterfront in the hope that community’s residents are willing to pay for it.
The land consists of two large lots, aggregated from a group of 10 that were once the site of the B.C. Tree Fruits Corporation packinghouse property.
The two lots are adjacent to existing Wharf Park, and would become part of the community park if the deal is completed.
The regional district’s offer of $1,150,000 is conditional, subject to public approval.
Community services manager Mark Woods says the property has a market value of $1.7 million and is currently zoned for commercial tourism use. An environmental study has also been completed on the property.
The directors agreed to proceed with the conditional offer.
