Dunes gets council nod
A plan to build multi-family residential units on The Dunes at Kamloops golf course got another green light from council.
At a public hearing on Tuesday, May 29, council voted to rezone a portion of the course as urban to allow for a 317-unit multi-family housing development, with only Nancy Bepple opposed.
North Core Developments plans to build the units on a portion of the course now in use as a driving range, between the existing 18-hole course and a planned nine-hole addition.
Bepple argued the city should preserve agricultural lands.
For the project to proceed, the Agricultural Land Commission must approve the developer’s application to withdraw seven hectares from the Agricultural Land Reserve. North Core has said it will convert five hectares of Dunes land into nut and fruit orchards.
