After several years on hold, the new Seasons condo development is gaining traction.
The Sandpoint Planning and Zoning Commission fielded requests from developers this week, putting the long-delayed project back in the public eye. According to Planning and Economic Development Director Aaron Qualls, the commission approved a request to construct the new condo building with a pitched roof. Other than that, the project is still able to move forward any time with the approval secured around 10 years ago. According to Qualls, developers are interested in moving forward on the development as soon as possible.
Times have changed quite a bit since then, the addition of the Sand Creek Byway not least among them. Qualls said the new development will block off a portion of Sandpoint views from drivers on the byway, an unfortunate side effect of the project. However, it will also add much-needed housing to downtown Sandpoint, he added.
