Not in my backyard

Kelowna business owners are pushing back against a new supportive housing complex set to go up in the Mill Creek Commerce Park.

Toni Gaspari, one of the developers of the park, says nearby business owners are upset they weren’t consulted about the project before plans were put in place.

He said most didn’t have any idea the project was happening until media organizations began asking them to weigh in on it.

While they fully support supportive housing in the community, Gaspari said many are worried the spartan, repurposed modular units that will make up the development won’t fit the form and character of the surrounding area.

For more on why City of Kelowna representatives are defending the project, including why one says some of the business owners' claims are "misleading," check out the full story on Castanet's sister business news website, Okanagan Edge.
