Dear Editor:

I’d like to correct a misunderstanding respecting STRs in Pine Ridge.
As Rory Hromadnik pointed out Pine Ridge is a mixture of R-1 and R-3A zoning. STRs may be permitted in the Condominiums which are located in R-3A zoning; however, in addition to STRs not being permitted in R-1 zoning, the current Disclosure Document for those lots prohibits rentals of less than 30 days.
With the current lack of long- term rental accommodation in Invermere, I feel we should not be encouraging short-term rentals by turning a blind eye, but rather encouraging people to provide more long-term rental accommodation.
