RMR working on golf course?

Revelstoke Mountain Resort hiring environmental specialist for subdivision and golf course development.

Is work set to begin on Revelstoke Mountain Resort’s golf course? That was the question raised by a recent job posting for an Environmental Specialist for Northland Properties, the company that owns the resort.

The posting at the Revelstoke Employment Service Centre asks for a specialist for a “subdivision and golf course project.” The applicant must be “familiar with environmental laws and regulations and be capable of pulling the required permits.”

Last summer the resort began cutting trees in the area of the golf course along Camozzi Road but a stop-work order was issued by the city after the work infringed on some riparian areas.

In a brief conversation at the ski hill today, Rod Kessler, the resort’s Chief Operating Officer, said the job was posted so the resort could deal with the environmental issues before development of the golf course can begin.

He did not provide any timeline for construction of the course.
