There are currently 20 homes completed, with 10 homes under construction.

The first seven units of the River Gate project are taking shape. Completion of these first units is scheduled for spring.

Coldwell Banker Kamloops Realty will have information on these units when they go on sale in the near future.

With pending deals on the last two lots, Sillaro phase 1 and 2 are sold out!

Design for upgrades to the Highway 5/E. Shuswap intersection are proceeding, with construction scheduled to begin late spring.

Tk'emlups te Secwepemc has indicated construction of the roundabout at the entrance to Sun Rivers will proceed this year. This will align the entrance to TteS lands to the south with the Sun Rivers entrance and provide improved traffic flow. More information on the planned improvements will come soon.

Construction has started on a storm water detention pond below The Pointe, just above E. Shuswap Rd. This pond will control the rate of flow of storm water leaving the Sun Rivers site. Once complete, the hillside and surrounding area disturbed during construction will be revegetated with natural grasses.

The Community Association will be working with Tk'emlups te Secwepemc on a number of issues of importance to the Sun Rivers Community. The Community and Intergovernmental Relations Committee will be heading this initiative on behalf of Sun Rivers residents. Resident volunteers are needed to assist in discussions with TteS.

If you would like to volunteer some time, please email your contact information to .
