A lately proposed plan for a brand new rental constructing has many Southeast Kelowna residents outraged.
“I’ve to say I used to be disillusioned, being a resident and a frequent golfer on the Pinnacle, I’m involved in regards to the affect,” mentioned Jacky Proctor, a Gallagher’s Canyon resident.
The constructing is slated to be constructed on the Pinnacle course at Gallagher’s Canyon Golf and Nation Membership.
“The affect on the course will probably be bigger than what the developer has indicated. It’s creating some security considerations, it can change the structure and the texture of the course, and it’ll affect the group as nicely,” mentioned Proctor.
“Having a big rental in the course of the golf course… is an enormous change from what we see now.”
The constructing, if accredited by town, would change the golf course and would see the development of a driveway by way of one of many holes’ fairways — something residents don’t need to see occur.
“The driveway would intersect the fourth gap fairway, doubtlessly golfers must be capturing over vehicles popping out of the residence constructing,” mentioned Doug Manning, one other Gallagher’s Canyon resident.
Manning says a survey was performed within the neighbourhood asking residents if they might be against the event.
“There was a major response to the survey, about 80 per cent was opposed, which represents about 1,000 residents, [and] about 5 per cent had been in favour and the opposite ten per cent couldn’t make up their minds,” mentioned Manning.
Burrard Worldwide Properties, out of Vancouver, is the event firm behind the proposed rental constructing.
The corporate didn’t reply to an interview request in time for publication.
