In a report to be presented at City of Revelstoke’s July 26 council meeting agenda, staff are recommending approving a development variance permit for the Mackenzie Village development in upper Arrow Heights.

The variance permit comes with a number of proposed variances that will reduce parking requirements, increase the allowable height of buildings, and reduce setbacks.

A staff report recommends council supports the variance permit. “The buildings would be between 4 and 5 storeys, increasing in height towards the central portion of the development.”

Revelstoke city council is scheduled to consider the development variance permit at its Tuesday, July 26 meeting, which starts at 3 p.m. in council chambers. If approved at the meeting as recommended by staff, the variance will be final. Council meetings are open to the public.

The development is in a comprehensive development zone; the requests for more variances means what is proposed is not currently permitted.

The council report has a marked indicating there have been updates to the document.
