RDOS directors did not make a decision on a large housing development at Twin Lakes Golf Course as information pertaining to the project continues to flood in.
Directors received more information about a variance permit application relating to water at the regularly scheduled meeting on May 19.
A decision is expected sometime in June on the permit application.
The developers are asking for a significant reduction in required water amounts to a single family unit outlined under RDOS bylaws. The reduction would be from 8,000 litres a day to 1,900 litres.
The issue resurfaced at the RDOS board table earlier in May as directors were brought up to speed on the development, which first started weaving its way through zoning and other provincial regulations more than two decades ago.
The current proposal outlines a subdivision in multiple phases with the first including construction of 33 single family strata units and 18 multifamily strata units. The overall plan is to build a total of 136 singe detached residential units and 72-multifamily units.
The concern is that there is not enough water to sustain the new development and the existing residents around Twin Lakes. A hydrogeological assessment called the Golder Report was commissioned in 2012. The report is expected to be released to the public in the coming weeks.
