KELOWNA - An update on the massive Blackmum Bay Village project will be made to West Kelowna council next week.

The proposal, off Campbell Road on Okanagan Lake, calls for a 10-storey hotel and “resort apartment” development along with a 241-slip marina and boat launch.

It’s tentatively scheduled to go to public hearing on Feb. 6 but Robert Moskovitz of Blackmum Bay Developments has asked to speak to council, in part, because there are three new councillors and a new mayor. He wants to brief them on the proposal and there are new technical studies that have been done since it last was in front of council last summer..

The 7.1-hectare property is about 900 metres south of the Highway 97 interchange and will have Campbell Road running through it.

The report to the City of West Kelowna, drafted by Planner Carla Eaton, says the proposal calls for 216 resort apartments, 86 resort townhouses and a 180-room hotel.

The Blackmum Bay website lists 280 condominiums, 60 townhouses and a 120-room hotel.

Council will hear the presentation at its regular council meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
