Arrow Heights subdivision for Uplands Road area

New subdivision to connect Mountain Gate Road and Uplands road, create 13

The lettered properties represent 13 new lots that will be created in the Uplands Road area of Arrow Heights if a new subdivision plan moves forward.

Revelstoke City Hall manager of development services Dean Strachan is recommending staff move forward with a complex series of changes to the Official Community Plan and rezoning rules to allow for the creation of a 13-lot subdivision in Arrow Heights.

The property in question was part of one that was the subject of a legal battle between the City of Revelstoke and the Revelstoke Land and Cattle Corporation after an access agreement between the two parties fell apart.

The case was settled out of court in 2013, and both sides say they can’t discuss the details of the settlement due to a non-disclosure agreement.

The new 13-lot subdivision will be located at the north end of Mountain Gate Road and Uplands Road, and will connect the two streets.

The agreement is notable for its complexity.

A Jan. 20 staff report outlines the process leading to the subdivision. It will include an official community plan amendment bylaw, a land use contract between the parties, a rezoning bylaw for part of the property, a road closure bylaw, a road exchange deal, and the creation of a statutory right of way.

Strachan said the 13-lot subdivision, “would fit the size, form and character of existing residential development within the neighbourhood.”

The report also sheds light on future development plans for the area.

“Future access to lands past the ends of both Uplands Road and Mountain Gate Road is no longer anticipated due to site limitations including steep slopes and servicing,” Strachan writes. “However, access to the reservoir is required and the proposed road exchange would continue to provide the necessary access.”

At their Jan. 28 regular meeting, city council approved the staff report as presented.
