Storage facility for RVs given the green light for development in Hope

Council approved a development permit for the facility at their Jan. 14 meeting

A proposed 70-unit RV storage, service, and sales facility proposed for Hope will be moving forward after the Hope and District Council voted to proceed with granting it a development permit at their Jan. 14 meeting.

This location will be “unique in that people can prepare and pack up for trips on site,” explained Hope’s director of community development, Jas Gill.

However, the proposed location for the facility, 62890 Flood Hope Rd., is in a flood plain, and should therefore be at least 0.6 metres above the nearest road.

“The amount of fill needed would be 11 feet,” said Gill, which would be a tremendous undertaking and cost-prohibitive. Instead, the developer has agreed to bring in some fill to level the property off and understands that if the area floods, they “will be at their own peril.”

And as there is no transferable risk to neighbouring properties, Council had no issues with construction on this site proceeding and passed the motion unanimously.
