Shelter Bay Land moving closer to breaking ground

Official Community Plan amendment approved to allow for mixed use Shelter Bay development in rural Revelstoke.

The proposed Shelter Bay development moved closer to breaking ground after an Official Community Plan amendment received final adoption by the Columbia–Shuswap Regional District last week.

The large, 767-unit development has been in the planning stages for years and has been the subject of two open houses, one public hearing and has gone through all three readings and necessary government approvals.

The amendment changes the Area B Official Community Plan to allow for the type of mixed-use zoning planned for the Shelter Bay Lands located along Highway 23 north of the Shelter Bay ferry dock.

For the next step, the property needs to be re-zoned. That will happen when a new zoning bylaw is passed for all of Area B, hopefully later this year, said director Loni Parker.

The zoning bylaw will set out zoning for the entire rural Revelstoke area; currently only some areas right around Revelstoke have zoning regulations. The bylaw was given first reading last July and is expected to come back to the CSRD Board of Directors this July, said Parker. “When it does come to the board it will go out to the public, probably in the fall for public hearings,” she said.

According to a staff report, developer Ender Ilkay is looking to move forward on the first phase of the Shelter Bay development by creating an eight-lot subdivision of one hectare lots.

The zoning bylaw needs to be in place before the sub-division could happen, said Parker, adding that the developer, Ender Ilkay, has already been working on plans for the sub-division.

“All these things are happening almost in lockstep with each other so when you finally get to the place where the zoning bylaw is in place you have documentation place,” Parker said.
