Five bloom rating for West Kelowna

Westbank First Nation and the District of West Kelowna earned a five bloom rating from Communities in Bloom.

Westbank First Nation and the District of West Kelowna earned a five bloom rating at the 2011 National Edition of Communities in Bloom award presentations on Oct. 29 in Quebec City.

On July 24 and 25, the DWK and WFN hosted Communities in Bloom volunteer judges Betty Lamont from Inverhuron, Ont., and Normand Rosa, from St. Sulpice, Que.

The judges were impressed with what they saw and awarded the community a perfect five out of five bloom rating. The judges were also quick to compliment the district’s Waterfront plan. “By looking at important environmental issues, access and the new proposed trail, for example, (the Waterfront Master Plan) will guarantee enjoyment of this valuable community asset and protect the shoreline and lake waters from adverse environmental impacts,” wrote the judges.
