Speakers at the meeting included City of West Kelowna Mayor, Gord Milsom and City of West Kelowna Planning Manager, Brent Magnan.

The primary issue of discussion was the proposed density of the Blackmun Bay Development, which has now been moved to a public hearing.

“The community was disappointed in the lack of attendance of three of the City of West Kelowna councillors that voted at the second reading in favour of this controversial high-density project in the Casa Loma community, although they were invited,” reads a release from Casa Loma. “It was hoped that each would outline their reasons for supporting this development which far exceeds the density outlined in the official community plan for Casa Loma.”
