Kelowna shelves city boundary extension talks

Having done its due diligence and considered its options in reviewing boundary rationalization and relocation, Kelowna city council has decided not to proceed at this time with any boundary moves.

As well, council directed staff to set aside the boundary adjustment discussion with Lake Country for now.

“The city is not interested in expanding its boundaries for the sake of expanding,” said Mayor Walter Gray.

“Certain conditions have changed since council first asked staff to review options.

“Meanwhile, other work more closely aligned to council priorities will take precedence at this time.”

Council decided it will adhere to its normal practice of only considering formal applications from individual property owners to adjust the city boundary.

Gray said the analysis and information gathered during this exercise will be useful in the event of subsequent governance or incorporation studies where the city is invited to participate.
