The much anticipated rezoning hearing to relocate the Kelowna Costco store will be held on Jan. 12.

Originally scheduled for Dec. 8, that public hearing was cancelled after provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry imposed new restrictions on public gatherings.

Costco plans to relocate to an area bounded by Springfield, Leckie and Baron Roads.

The public hearing is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. and the public can only attend electronically.

“To participate in the public hearing you will need a computer, tablet or smartphone that's connected to the internet and has a microphone,” states a note on the City of Kelowna website.

Details on how to dial in will be published during the week of Jan. 4, here. There will also be a link to a video stream of the meeting.

Later that evening, council will also consider development variance permits for the Water Street by the Park high-rise development on Leon Avenue at Water Street.

Developer Anthony Beyrouti is proposing three condominium towers, the tallest being 42 storeys. That item is scheduled for 8:45 p.m.
