The Revelstoke Adventure Park received a key vote of support from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, moving it closer to realization.

The CSRD gave the adventure park’s re-zoning application third reading at its meeting last month, meaning it only needs to clear one more vote before being approved by the board.

Loni Parker, the director for Area B Rural Revelstoke said the final vote should be a formality.

The re-zoning governs the uses allowed on the adventure park property.

The adventure park received approval for a land tenure that is conditional on the re-zoning.

Illecillewaet Development is proposing to build a summer recreation facility on 257 hectares of land in the Greely area east of Revelstoke. The adventure park plans include lift-accessed mountain biking, bungie jumping, zip lines, an artificial surf wave, campground and more.
