Mackenzie Landing open house scheduled

Open house being held at Arrow Heights Elementary on April 30 to discuss massive Mackenzie Landing development

The City of Revelstoke will be going out to the community first before drafting a zoning bylaw for a proposed massive development in Arrow Heights.

David and Shelley Evans are proposing a major mixed-use, high-density development with up to 1,580 units on a 35 acre property in Arrow Heights.

The property stretches from Nichol Road in the south to Upper Arrow Heights in the north, and from Hay Road to Arrow Heights Elementary school.

The development would include condos, townhouses, rowhouses, apartments, single-family lots and some commercial space.

The city’s planning department plans on creating a comprehensive development zone for the project, but first it wants to hear from the community.

It has developed an extended community consultation process that will include an open house at Arrow Heights Elementary on Apr. 30 from 6–8 p.m. to give local residents a chance to provide feedback before it drafts up the necessary zoning amendments.

“The proposed development is significant as it is proposed to include approximately 1580 residential units,” wrote Dean Strachan, the manager of development services, in his report to council. “As such the application should likely involve a greater level of review, referral and consultation than that required by legislation.”

The city will be providing notice of the open house to all Arrow Heights residents, and will advertise the meeting on its website, Facebook page and in the media.

The consultation plan was set to go in front of council for approval on Tuesday, Apr. 14, after press time.
