The District of West Kelowna is hosting an open house seeking public input into two key initiatives for Westbank Centre Revitalization—the Brown Road Improvement Project and Memorial Park Upgrades.

The event will be held  Thursday, March 14, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Westbank Lions Hall at 2466 Main Street, West Kelowna.

Brown Road Improvement Project:

West Kelowna Council has an $800,000 budget this year to improve the Brown Road streetscape from Main Street (Hwy 97 South) to Bering Road in keeping with the Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan.

Come provide your input on proposed improvements such as sidewalks, street trees, street furnishings and crosswalks.

Memorial Park Upgrades:

Located next to Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre, Memorial Park, is an important public gathering place.  West Kelowna Council wants to improve the existing outdoor facility and enhance the Music in the Park summer concert series hosted there. Results of an online ideas survey will be discussed and public input welcomed.

For more information about these projects, please contact the District’s Planning Department at 778-797-8830.
