e plan shows the proposed moorage for a redeveloped Harrison Marina

Floating homes and boardwalk proposed for lakeside

Harrison Marina development heading to public hearing

Floating homes, increased boat moorage, condominiums , a new restaurant and commercial space and a boardwalk into the Village are part of a proposal for a massive development at Harrison Marina.

The site is on the west side of Harrison Lake, between the Yacht Club and the old federal wharf.

There currently is moorage at the site, but the comprehensive redevelopment plan would require an OCP text amendment. It would include 15 floating homes, two condominium buildings with 51 multi-family units, commercial space, a restaurant and community amenity space.

The plans also include an allowance for an access channel to the Harrison Yacht Club.

The plans have been sent for comments to the Village engineer, fire chief, APC, transportation ministry, school district and the FVRD. A public hearing will be held at 7 pm. on July 8 at council chambers for amendments to the OCP and zoning bylaw amendments.

The amendments were first read in council on Jun. 3, and received a second reading on Jun. 17.

Andre Isakov, manager of planning and community services, said that a more detailed plan from the developer would be available to the public prior to the public hearing.
