Crystal Mountain’s resort plans have been reduced in size from previous designs, but they are on the move through the final application processes.

A report to the Regional District of Central Okanagan has the first phase of development that would occur at the resort reduced to 418 beds from the original 1,200 beds proposed. The initial construction phase would include a daylodge, 26 single family chalets, seven townhouses, two condominium buildings and a bed and breakfast.

The construction focuses on the heart of the resort, getting buildings into place while construction costs are low so the organization will be in a better position when the market corrects itself.

Director and West Kelowna mayor Doug Findlater said the changes are encouraging, and the smaller footprint will allow the project to possibly move ahead.

CORD planner Ron Fralick said once staff are satisfied that conditions for the readings have been addressed, the bylaw will be brought forward for final reading.

Fralick said a few agreements have to be revised due to the reduction of residential units in the proposal.

Amendments will also be required in Crystal Mountain’s agreements with the province before development can proceed.
