The City of Revelstoke council approved a development permit for a multi-family building strata in Arrow Heights at its Jan. 23 council meeting.

The move will add 30 new homes to Revelstoke’s housing stock.

The property is set to be developed at 1679 Arrow Dr. and will include one duplex and seven fourplexes.

On the recommendation of city staff, council approved the development permit application after a zoning amendment was approved in October.

There are also plans to have a multi-use pathway (MUP) on the road connecting to the development.

“For the community as a whole, the applicant will be required to put frontage improvements for a MUP along the roadway,” said city planner Erica Hartling.

The applicant’s rezoning was approved by council on the condition that the applicant contribute $300,000 to the city’s Affordable Housing Reserve.

The property up for development was originally zoned for mobile home use and was previously the Crescent Heights Mobile Home Park.

The property received some local notoriety for controversy when the tenants of the mobile home park were served eviction notices as the developer sought to redevelop the land. Now, with council’s decision to approve the development permit, the saga of the property concludes ahead of the new housing to come.

The Review was unable to reach the property owner for comment.
