Raidium Expansion project gets green light

Horsethief and Mountainside Market talk change

Council green-lighted a new development permit that will subdivide lots for future development on a site that is home to both Mountainside Market and The Horsethief Creek Pub & Eatery in Radium Hot Springs at their Wednesday, October 11th meeting.

Kebe Holdings Ltd. is in the middle of drawing up plans for the expansion of The Horsethief Pub, based on the evening’s motion.

The purpose of the expansion is to move the liquor store that is currently located in the Horsethief Pub into Mountainside Market. Visuals of the proposed design that were shown to the public during Kebe’s delegation demonstrated that an easement would be necessary to load the liquor into Mountainside through the back of the building. With one loading dock in place the facility would be reliant on the neighbouring property for access.

Concerns over easement issues were brought to the table by Mayor Clara Reinhardt as she stipulated that the go-ahead of the permit was contingent on providing an “easement clause” to ensure that both businesses had access to fundamental amenities like garbage and propane.

Parking was also a factor that was mentioned and will be a consideration in later stages of the plan, but overall the expansion bodes well for Radium.

“Its nice to see this kind of confidence in our community — that someone is willing to do the enhancement,” said Ms. Reinhardt.
