Winds cause damage to local business

A suspension bridge at Kelowna Mountain has been damaged after an assault from Mother Nature.

A suspension bridge at Kelowna Mountain has been damaged after an assault from Mother Nature.

Following reports that a bridge had been damaged by vandals, Nicola Consiglio put out a brief comment on Facebook, explaining what was really happening.

“There was a terrible Windstorm. Kelowna Mountain has not been Vandalized. Maintenance is on site,” Nicola Consiglio, wife of Mark Consiglio, the developer of the Kelowna Mountain project, wrote.

“Thank you for the emails and Texts to help repair.”

The Consiglios are the focus of a foreclosure lawsuit filed in BC Supreme Court.

Melvin Haber, Robert Sauer, Craig Sheridan, Dr. Steven L. Kirzner INC. and Mackoff Management Services (2012) INC. filed the suit that alleges payments have not been made on mortgages and other loans totaling $4,435,993.18 with interest of $2,747.59 accruing daily.

The petitioners are seeking a court order to sell a 480-acre Kelowna Mountain property used to secure the loans.

Kelowna Mountain is also involved in a lawsuit filed by Tri City Capital Corp., which claims Kelowna Mountain defaulted on a mortgage.

Seemingly in return, Kelowna Mountain has sued the Regional District of the Central Okangan. In a suit launched last month, Kelowna Mountain claims to have spent more than $50 million to purchase the lands and to develop them for agriculture and agri-tourism uses.

That investment, it claims, was a waste due to the actions of the regional district, which it says effectively put them out of business.

Kelowna Mountain will open Easter weekend in 2016 and be open weekends only until summer, according to its Facebook page.
