McDon­ald’s com­ing to Reid’s Cor­ner

The Daily Courier - - OKANAGAN -

Kelowna is get­ting an­other McDon­ald’s restau­rant.

The fast-food out­let is planned for 144 Old Ver­non Rd., near the in­ter­sec­tion of High­way 97, com­monly known as Reid’s Cor­ner.

How­ever, coun­cil on Mon­day had to be­gin the process of elim­i­nat­ing an old lan­duse con­tract for the site. That doc­u­ment, which dates back to the 1970s, specif­i­cally pro­hib­ited a restau­rant for the prop­erty.

Un­der an or­der from the pro­vin­cial govern­ment, all B.C. mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties are phas­ing out land-use con­tracts and re­plac­ing them with con­ven­tional zon­ing reg­u­la­tions.

The site eyed for a McDon­ald’s will be re­zoned to a com­mer­cial des­ig­na­tion.
