Clearwater town council approved a development permit on Tuesday afternoon for construction of a Tim Hortons restaurant in the Clearwater Shopping Centre near Buy-Low.

The new business could employ between 45 and 60 full-time and part-time workers, said mayor John Harwood.

“One of the biggest questions has been, can we get enough employees,” Harwood said.

The approximately 250 square metre (2,700 sq. ft.) restaurant would have seating for about 44 patrons.

The proposed structure appeared to meet all of the development permit guidelines in the official community plan (OCP), according to chief administrative officer Leslie Groulx.

It would be located west of the present credit union building, next to Highway 5 (although access would be through the shopping centre’s parking lot).
