PENTICTON - A burned out, derelict gas station in Okanagan Falls could be the future site of a new development.

A proposal that would see the former Centex gas station rebuilt to two storeys with a carwash, office, storage and a retail sales area is expected to come before a Regional District of Okanagan Similkmaeen board meeting later this week.

The gas station has been sitting as a burned out, derelict shell following a suspicious fire in August 2016.

A report to regional district board notes the importance of the proposal for the "overall aesthetic" of Okanagan Falls.

Directors will be asked to approve a permit for the redevelopment at the regular board meeting on Thursday, March 15.
