Centennial Field Potential Park Use

Friday, September 12, 2014

For those residents and property owners in the Blind Bay area, it is commonly known that the property at 2690 Centennial Drive has been the site of (many) community gatherings, including the Canada Day festivities, and is used by the public. As some of you may know, the property is owned by Shuswap Lake Estates Ltd.

This news release is to inform Electoral Area ‘C’ residents, particularly those located in the Blind Bay area, that the Columbia Shuswap Regional District has previously had some negotiations with Shuswap Lake Estates Ltd. related to a potential purchase price for evaluation purposes on the 2690 Centennial Drive property, for consideration of the property for potential park use. Those discussion(s)/negotiations regarding the potential acquisition of this land were not successful and the Board has now directed that they be discontinued.

It is possible that a future Regional Board may wish to consider acquisition of the property for community use, but for the time being this matter is closed.
