A public hearing on the proposed rezoning of a mobile home park in West Kelowna, which may force dozens of people to look for a new place to live, takes place Tuesday, Jan. 23.

The land owner wants to rezone Shady Acres Park, located at 2355 Marshall Road, to light industrial.

Several park residents showed up at council’s Dec. 12 meeting to hear the rezoning proposal be given first and second readings.

The city has already received correspondence citing concerns about a shortage of housing, compensation, assessment of homes, and fears of losing quality of life.

The public hearing will take place in council chambers at 2760 Cameron Road starting at 6:00 p.m.

It can also be viewed via live stream on the City of West Kelowna website.
