District council has OK’d a development permit application for Papa’s Sicamous Marina at 909 Riverside Ave.

The permit, explained district community planner Mike Marrs, is to allow for the redevelopment of the site, including the demolition of the existing facilities to construct two new separate buildings, one a larger facility to store boats, and the other an office space with residential above. The proposed work is in compliance with district zoning and the official community plan.

 

District staff recommended the development be approved, subject to a road dedication of approximately 150 square metres. This is to allow the district to move forward with road improvements and street designs without having to purchase the land later.
