Development proposed at Crown Isle

Courtenay council has approved second reading for a development proposal adjacent to the Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community.

The Silverado Land Corporation project includes about 330 units, including patio homes and single family homes. Secondary suites will be a permitted use in the latter.

A pathway is proposed around the edge of the property.

“There’s been broad support for the development from attendees at a public meeting, and subsequent written submissions,” Richard Cook of Jorden Cook Associates in Vancouver said in a presentation to council Jan. 6.

Cook said residential units immediately adjacent to the Britannia Place development will be no more than two storeys.

Along with a contribution to an Affordable Housing Amenity Reserve Fund, Silverado will provide an affordable housing unit to the Dawn to Dawn Action on Homelessness Society. The 20-foot unit would contain a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.

A public hearing about the development proposal will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20 in council chambers.
