Fourth workshop on Bernard revitalization slated

The City of Kelowna and Downtown Kelowna Association will host a fourth workshop to discuss plans for a revitalized Bernard Avenue on Monday, Feb. 7, from 5:30 to 8:15 p.m., at the Royal Anne Hotel.

“This workshop will provide streetscape design options and associated costs for each scheme,” said project manager, Pat McCormick. “

We will also discuss construction phasing and how we may mitigate unnecessary impacts on Bernard Avenue businesses.”

More than 45 business and property owners are confirmed to participate.

“It is important to involve our downtown stakeholders that will be impacted by the project. We encourage all of our Downtown members to attend this workshop to gain a better understanding of the overall project and its benefits,” added Peggy Athans, DKA executive director.

This workshop is the fourth in a series of community consultation which began Jan. 18, 2010. The underground utilities and pavement along Bernard Avenue must be replaced within the next few years.

The timing of this work provides an opportunity to enhance the experience of walking, shopping and dining along Bernard Avenue. To register for the workshop, contact the DKA at 250-862-3515 extension 24, or email the consultant,
