Next week, the Manteo Resort in Kelowna will hold a public meeting into its plan to expand skyward.

The resort along the Okanagan Lake waterfront wants to redevelop its site with 18 townhouses and two highrises.

One of those towers will be twelve storeys high, the other ten storeys, despite the fact that Kelowna's official community plan only allows for six storeys.

City councillor Robert Hobson explains why city councillors have voted to
send the matter to public hearing.
