Lake Country

Records Set in Lake Country

Lake Country issued a record-setting number of permits last year valued at almost $100 million and construction continues to surge during the beginning of 2019. The building boom shows no signs of slowing down as development projects including Highlands at Lakestone and 190 new homes adjacent to Main Street draw residents who otherwise would have settled in Kelowna or West Kelowna.

While Lake Country has many draws, it’s what this community lacks that is also attractive.  Lake Country has a handle on homelessness and a recent count found not a single homeless person. As well, Lake Country residents are not subject to the controversial speculation tax applied to neighbouring Kelowna.
