There is a new proposal heading to Kamloops council today to develop the former Tranquille Sanatorium and surrounding farmland, which make up Tranquille on the Lake.

British Columbia Wilderness Tours Inc. has submitted an Agricultural Land Reserve application to adjust what is permitted on the site in order to build a "a sustainable agri-community," according to a report to council. 

The plan proposes planting orchards and vineyards with the goal of developing a destination winery above Cooney Bay overlooking Kamloops Lake. 

The development would be family-oriented homes and a regional community park at Cooney Bay. The development site is made up of multiple parcels of land that total 190 hectares.

British Columbia Wilderness Tours Inc. has made several applications to council dating as far back as 2006, all of which were unsuccessful. 

Council will decide Dec. 15 whether they will forward the latest proposal to the Agricultural Land Commission for consideration, or reject it. 

If the plan is approved by the Agricultural Land Commission, the matter will go to a Public Hearing so Kamloops residents can provide their input.
