March 10, 2010, Kelowna, B.C. – Greenhouses
could be popping up in residential areas around Kelowna after city council gave
preliminary approval to a staff report allowing agricultural use of vacant
lots.

City councillor Angela Reid calls it
an awesome use of vacant land, adding who wouldn’t want to have a nice-looking
greenhouse next door.

City staffer Danielle Noble told
council any greenhouses should be subject to requirements to limit their impact
on a neighbourhood, such as size, landscaping and distance from other
structures.

Several other B.C. municipalities allow greenhouses in urban areas,
Noble says. The proposed text amendment to the zoning bylaws will be considered
at a future public hearing.
