The City of Kelowna wants residents to help shape its public engagement practices around projects, policies and initiatives.

"We know that engaged communities are strong communities," says Mayor Walter Gray. "We're looking for ideas from residents on how we can make it easier for them to have their say in city-led initiatives."

Residents will have an opportunity to have their say on how the city should gathers their input by sharing their insights and ideas to help inform policy and procedures at City Hall to improve what it is calling "engagement practices."

Information tables will be hosted by city staff at various locations across the city and residents are invited to stop by. The tables will be set up:

• Friday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at the H2O Adventure and Fitness Centre

• Tuesday, Mar. 5 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Family Y in Rutland

• Friday, March 8 from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday, Mar. 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at Orchard Park Mall.

City residents can also complete an online survey to express opinions at starting Friday, Feb. 22.

The survey will close on Friday, March 22. Hard copies of the survey will be available at City Hall for people without computer access.

Survey respondents will be eligible to win one of three family day passes for the H2O Adventure and Fitness Centre or the Parkinson Recreation Centre.
