First step in development of Pond's 'village centre' going before Kelowna council

First step in development of Pond's 'village centre' going before Kelowna council
Plans for a new 300-unit apartment development in Kelowna’s Mission, the first step in the development of The Pond's neighbour 'village centre,' will hit the desks of city councillors next week.

City staff are recommending council provide preliminary support to the development just off Gordon Drive on Frost Road, near Canyon Falls Middle School.City staff say the development is consistent with the overarching plans for ‘The Ponds’ neighbourhood, “and would contribute to completing the neighbourhood village centre.The project will require an official community plan amendment and rezoning application, both of which city staff recommend council give first reading to and send to a public hearing.” The project would contribute to an increase in traffic in the neighbourhood and will require upgrades to mitigate impacts, including a developer contribution to a future traffic signal at the Frost Road and Gordon Drive and construction of a northbound right turn lane at the Steele Road and Gordon Drive.
