To the editor:
I’ve found that in the Okanagan, I am blessed to live in such a wonderful area. With the current status, Kelowna has a lot of potential to become a great city for our communities that live within it.
That said, the City of Kelowna is at a standstill frame of mind and is turning proposed park into four storey commercial zoning. The waterfront land is important to the community and is what makes Kelowna and the Okanagan so desirable.
On Cedar Avenue, in the South Pandosy area, the city will be selling 82 per cent of that land that was originally purchased for preserving parks. The rest of that area will be designated for a boardwalk. Already this was turned down at a prior city council meeting, but they still want to go ahead with it anyway.
On April 5 at 5 p.m., I hope to see our community stand up against the city and turn down this proposal and hope the city will see potential in the building and shaping of Kelowna’s future.
