LETTER: Ski lodge owners aim to be good neighbours

Owners of WhiteWorth lodge near Revelstoke Mountain Resort say they'll listen to feedback and be good neighbours.


Thank you for writing again about our family’s efforts to obtain the proper zoning for our WhiteWorth Lodge proposal. We greatly appreciate you – and the many people–- who took time to attend last week and tell us their thoughts. The meeting went on for almost 2.5 hours and the tone, respect and the outcome was really remarkable. We are grateful for this.

Meanwhile, we will continue to work with the Interior Health Authority to ensure our newly installed septic system meets, or exceeds, all requirements. In addition, we will be joining with our neighbours and the City of Revelstoke to advance the provision of water and sewer services for all our neighbours.  This is a priority for our plans!

Last, we will continue to prove our real and proper intentions and true character to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, and our neighbours, as we move forward in the process.

We have noted all comments received — the issues and concerns. We have listened and we have heard.  And as we have stated many times: our main goal is to be a good neighbour – the best kind.

We will seriously consider everyone’s thoughtful input and make some decisions shortly on how we might be able to proceed in a way that can work for everyone!

Thank you very much again for the opportunity to explain.
