As many of you are aware, the Village of Kettle Valley seeked your input on the change in development type for a parcel of land located at Thalia Street and Quilchena Drive. Based on community feedback, the Village of Kettle Valley has finalized a neighbourhood layout that is based on the resident input we received at our open house events on February 15 and May 2, 2016. This current design reflects the desire of the surrounding community and maintains the values of Kettle Valley.
The feedback we received from those who attended the open house and participated in selecting preferred home/park mixes and road layouts has help us in submitting an application to the City of Kelowna that reflects public preference. We have taken your selections into account and we thank you for your input.
The benefit of each housing type and park space is outlined below.
The Village of Kettle Valley will implement “Height Restriction Covenants” that will restrict the height of dwellings in an attempt to preserve views and character. Height restrictions across the entire development will be written into legal titles on each property in the development to preserve these lake views. Lastly, Kettle Valley would include “No Build Covenants” and “No Disturb Covenants”, in efforts to ensure that no vegetation or temporary structures disturb views.
The following diagrams illustrate the cutlines for two properties, ‘Section A’ and ‘Section B’, and their corresponding views.
Those who attended our Open House on May 2nd had the opportunity to read a document that we prepared to help clear up some of the misinformation that has been circulating about this project.

At the Open House, we were also able to present some of the comments and feedback from residents that helped to shape the three development layout options outlined above. Click the link below to view some of the resident comments we presented and examples of the incorporated design elements.
On April 4th, the Village of Kettle Valley published an open letter from Stephen Wells, President. This letter addressed many of the concerns that residents have expressed, as well as some of the inaccuracies that have circulated in a petition.
A timeline detailing the property background was released in March, giving residents an opportunity to learn more about the intended usage for this property.
