It’s interesting that rumours and rumblings are being listed as some of the reasons for delays for the Oliver Landing project. I would put serious question to the credibility that they are merely rumours.
Why, after months of the stop work order lifting has there been almost no site activity? Why is the developer blaming subcontracting? Are they not in charge of hiring the people they need and that are qualified?
In the whole of the Okanagan Valley they can’t find good contractors? Everyone else seems to be able to find them just fine, so why does Oliver Landing have all the bad luck?
If their development is of such high quality why would they have been slapped with a stop work order? They have been quoted as saying they have had to educate the Town of Oliver building inspector. Educate about what exactly?
If Oliver Landing is having issues, what will Oliver Heights be like if it gets started?
A development that isn’t developing usually has troubles financially, which is linked to buyer confidence in their product and or labour shortages.
I find it odd that the town building inspector needed to be educated about spray foam insulation, which has been around for a while now.
The old adage of where there is smoke there is fire seems to be very apt for the “rumours” of this project/developer. I really have to question if Oliver Landing is truly what it projects itself to be to the community.
