Strata proposal irks neighbours

Some Middleton Mountain residents are rallying to keep further development out of their neighbourhood.

An application has been made to Coldstream to subdivide a nearly three hectare lot at 815 Mt. Ida Drive into 11 bare land strata lots.

The application has been made despite a restrictive covenant, put in place in 2004, which does not permit more than one single-family residence.

Several homeowners on Mt. Ida Drive are urging Coldstream politicians to turn down the request.

“I was told, when we purchased our lot, that there was only going to be one residence up there,” said Greg Houle.

“We bought and built under the assumption that would be the case,” added Sabre Cherkowski.

The landowner, who could not be reached for comment, is expected to appear at the Jan. 9 Coldstream council meeting, where the matter will be revisited.

“Everyone is offered that opportunity to be heard,” said Mayor Jim Garlick, who also reminded the residents that they could return with a petition against the application.

 

Coun. Doug Dirk also noted: “Anybody can bring a request to council and council will consider it, so it’s important that you voice your opinions.”
