We’ll find out next week whether Johnsons Landing residents displaced by last year’s deadly landslide will ever be able to return home.

A geotechnical report is expected to be made public during an open house in the community Thursday. The Regional District of Central Kootenay board received it in a closed meeting this week.

Administrator Brian Carruthers told 103.5 The Bridge that the report looks at the slide’s cause, the likelihood of another such event, and makes recommendations that will help determine whether residents can return and rebuild.

The slide in July 2012 destroyed three homes and claimed four lives. The area remains under an evacuation notice.
