The City of Revelstoke has received three expressions of interest to develop housing projects on the city-owned Bridge Creek Properties parcel located near the entrance to Revelstoke’s industrial park.

The news came at city council’s Mar. 22 regular meeting.

The city received three expressions of interest by the Mar. 11 deadline.

Coun. Peter Frew said it was welcome news: “I think that’s positive and I think the housing society and the city’s planning department have some work ahead of them and I think that’s good news,” Frew told council.

The expressions will now be reviewed by the Revelstoke Community Housing Society, the city’s planning department and other city staff.

The city is not publicly releasing more details the proposals. Mayor David Raven said the proposals would be in camera for the time being.
