The City of Penticton is seeking public feedback regarding a land use change that would see redevelopment of the former Kampe property located at 435 Green Avenue West.

Council was presented with an application to develop two, six storey apartment buildings totalling 158 units on the site at yesterday’s, March 16, regular meeting of council.

The proposal requires an amendment to the Official Community Plan to change future land use designation for the property from detached residential to urban residential.

A rezoning application has also been submitted to change the zoning from small lot residential (R2) to medium density residential (RM3).

Development plans include two, six storey apartment buildings in one, two and three bedroom configurations. The complexes will contain 197 parking spaces and bicycle storage areas in addition to a community garden and dog run.

Interested citizens can find out more about the proposal and share feedback at shapeyourcitypenticton.ca.

Information sessions are planned for March 30 and April 9. If the land use change is approved, a development permit and environmental development permit will be required to assess and mitigate environmental impacts, a release from the city said today, March 17.
