Cardlock facility east of city moves ahead

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has pushed ahead with plans for a commercial cardlock facility pitched for Monte Creek.

The board voted at its recent meeting to send to a public hearing a zoning amendment to a three-hectare property east of city boundaries, at the intersection of Hook Road, the Trans Canada Highway and Dallas Drive.

The land is currently vacant except for cattle fencing, and the proposed development would include two drive-thru restaurants, a gas station, a grocery retailer and a commercial cardlock facility.

Kamloops Coun. Arjun Singh and Mayor Ken Christian opposed the plan. As part of the TNRD’s consultation process, the city recommended denying the development because it is not resource- or agriculture-based.

“They [city staff] felt that those kinds of developments should be within city boundaries rather than in rural areas,” TNRD director of development services Regina Sadilkova told the board.
