Plan calls for more services at Predator

Residents can provide input on long-term land uses in a high-profile Vernon neighbourhood.

Residents can provide input on long-term land uses in a high-profile Vernon neighbourhood.

The city is holding an open house Tuesday on the Predator Ridge neighbourhood plan update.

“A draft plan was submitted (by staff and consultants) in June and we’re making sure it’s consistent with the goals of the city’s official community plan,” said Cleo Corbett, Vernon’s long range planner.

The neighbourhood plan will specify future land use activities for the golf resort and residential areas at Predator Ridge.

The document was first developed in 1998 and updated in 2004.

“The new plan is proposing a loop road in the undeveloped portion of the neighbourhood,” said Corbett.

“There are also quite a few residents living there so the plan is aiming to address their needs.”

One of the proposals is to see the resort tourist commercial area go from four to six per cent of the plan.

“People want services like a small grocery store or other commercial amenities,” said Corbett, adding that those services would reduce trips into Vernon.

Tuesday’s open house runs from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Schubert Centre.

“I hope a lot of people come out to the session because Predator Ridge is a huge economic driver in the community,” said Corbett.

Public feedback can also be provided online at

The input will then be considered by city staff and consultants to determine if the plan needs to be refined.

“We will then bring it forward to council for consideration in December or January,” said Corbett.
