Kelowna City Council considers ‘alternate’ approval process for Upper Mission road expansion.February 2, 2018 12:44 pm
February 1, 2018: Prompted by developers active in the Upper Mission area, Kelowna voters will be asked to endorse city council’s plans to accelerate construction on South Perimeter Road linking Gordon Drive with Stewart Road West. Developers offered to pay a larger share of the $10.7 million project to have it fast-tracked using the ‘alternate approval process’. This new process stipulates that the road construction will go ahead unless 10% of voters sign a petition against it by the deadline of March 16.
If approved, the project suggests a large number of land takings or expropriations along the Steward Road West corridor. Owners looking for up-to-date land value estimates for compensation are encouraged to seek the formal opinion of Commercial Appraisers.
NCA Commercial Inc. is keeping a close eye on the process and is well-prepared to offer valuation services to adjacent land owners affected by the potential road straightening and expansion.
