Hotel Development Opportunity



The Town of Oliver is a growing small community yet lacks mid- to upscale hotels and resorts with meeting space and amenities to compete with those situated in the neighbouring communities of Osoyoos and Penticton.  We have a number of viable hotel sites within the Town Centre.

The Hotel Market Study that the Town commissioned, included an Economic Feasibility Analysis, which outlines strong opportunity to grow the hospitality and tourism industry in Oliver. 

As current economics for a stand-alone hotel development can be challenging, the Town Council has established development incentives such as; Residential Development Component, Property Tax Exemption for Improvements, which for a hotel development allows for a ten-year exemption from municipal taxes, Infrastructure Costs, and Public Office Space.
