Arden building will proceed in Courtenay

Plans for a 128-unit residential development in the Lambert Drive and Arden Road area are moving ahead.

Courtenay council adopted the Official Community Plan (OCP) and zoning amendment bylaws, which allow 128 homes at the end of Lambert Drive, fronting onto Arden Road, last week.

Arden Road Developments Ltd. is proposing to build 128 patio homes on the 30-acre site at 2368, 2498 and 2650 Arden Rd., including a mix of single, duplex and triplex residential units.

The development also proposes the dedication of about 9.88 acres of parkland to the city and an extensive trail system.

A site will be dedicated to the City, and Peter Crawford, Courtenay's director of planning services, says the City will likely work with Habitat for Humanity.
