New Kelowna police services building open houses planned

The City of Kelowna has determined the police building needs to be replaced.

The current 50-year-old facility no longer meets required building code and policing standards, among other deficiencies.

So city council has initiated a process that seeks Kelowna electors’ approval to borrow the $42 million needed to complete project work for a new building on the corner of Clement Avenue and Richter Street.

The public can find out more about the project at two planned open houses: Thursday, March 6, and Monday, March 10, at the Royal Anne Hotel, 348 Bernard Ave., from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. both days.

City officials will be on hand to answer questions about the project, the elector approval process and the proposed borrowing arrangement.

If you are unable to attend either open house, all the project information will also be available online at under Police Services Building.
