Old Kindale facility faces wrecking ball

Better than a new car or diamond ring, one piece of paper has put a smile on the faces of everyone at the Kindale Developmental Association.

Better than a new car or diamond ring, one piece of paper has put a smile on the faces of everyone at the Kindale Developmental Association.

The final permit has been received and demolition of the former administration building and cable building will begin immediately on Patterson Avenue in Armstrong.

“Both buildings have been empty for some time and safety was a big concern for the Kindale family,” said Cindy Masters, development officer.

“The buildings were unsafe and could no longer be repaired.”

Actual plans for the new site have not been finalized but Kindale is meeting with potential partners and planning a multi-purpose building that will serve many aspects of the community, including affordable housing and commercial office space.

“The Century 21 donation of space for the administration office will be expiring in the very near future,” said Masters.

“Plans will include co-ordination and communication with the City of Armstrong and its official community plan as well as working with the Regional District of the North Okanagan.”

Kindale provides support to individuals with developmental disabilities.
