New park restricts boat trailer parking

Coldstream's newest park on Kalavista Drive makes no room for boat trailers

A new Coldstream park won’t be overrun by boaters needing a spot for trailers.

Parking restrictions have been added to proposed rezoning for 8505 Kalavista Drive, next to the lagoon.

“The intent is to deal with boat trailers,” said Coun. Richard Enns of the property which is adjacent to a boat launch.

However, Coun. Maria Besso opposed the wording because she wanted the guidelines to specify trailers for motorized boats.

“A boat trailer could be a kayak or canoe,” she said, adding those would be acceptable uses.

The Regional District of North Okanagan recently acquired the site, also known as the log house property.

Coldstream council will hold a public hearing Nov. 28 to consider rezoning from residential single-family to parks and open space.

Training Centre Change Approved

The District of Coldstream will support a new operating model for the regional fire training centre.

Under the plan, the City of Vernon will manage the Regional District of North Okanagan facility under an inter-municipal agreement.

Coldstream Coun. Doug Dirk says a new model was pursued because the city considered withdrawing from the function over costs and operational concerns.

“This keeps everyone together and we will save a little money,” he said.

The Pottery Road centre provides training opportunities for all fire departments in the North Okanagan.

Public Input On Mall Sought

Coldstream residents will be able to provide input on zoning changes for a proposed mall.

Amended property setbacks are being sought for Trintec Enterprises’ property on Highway 6, next to the Regional District of North Okanagan office. Land uses like libraries, bingo halls, fast food restaurants and hotels would be added to the bylaw, while cabarets, automobile rental and transportation facilities would be removed.

“The owners have been trying to attract a commercial anchor tenant for several years,” said Craig Broderick, director of development services, in a report.

A public hearing on the proposed zoning amendment will be held Nov. 28.
