Civic Address: 354 Leoffler Road / Greely Road

Short Summary:
The properties that are the subject of this OCP/rezoning amendment application are located at Greely south and east of the City of Revelstoke south of the Trans-Canada Highway and across the Illecillewaet River in in Electoral Area ‘B’.

A number of these properties on the south side of the CPR main line had already been re-designated and rezoned for the Revelstoke Adventure Park proposed development by the Board in Bylaws No. 850-11 and 851-10 in November, 2016. The adventure park will combine recreational activities such as hiking, trail riding, bungee jumping, rock climbing, zip lining, rope courses, and mountain biking, with accommodation options such as hotels, tourist cabins, RV Park and yurts. Food services and commercial opportunities will also be featured.

As portions of some of the original properties were in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), a large portion of the accommodation necessary to support the Adventure Park was eliminated from the previously adopted Bylaws at second reading, to conform to ALR Regulations. The owners of the property have subsequently re-visited their development proposal with Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) officials and re-located some of their uses on to adjacent properties, with the blessing of the ALC. The current proposal for OCP/Rezoning amendment is to align with the approvals given by the ALC.

This application is a new proposal to include these adjacent properties north of the CPR main line into the overall development plan by re-designating the new portions of property from RSC Rural Resource to RC – Resort Commercial and to rezone from RH - Rural Holdings to CDB4 – Comprehensive Development B4 (Illecillewaet Development Inc.). Additionally, the original Development Areas recognized in the CDB4 zone are required to be re-aligned and new Development Areas, including some new permitted uses in each area, added to reflect the new proposal.
