Get involved with the Civic Block Plan

Residents are invited to learn more about the plan under development for the Civic Block area of downtown.

Residents are invited to learn more about the plan under development for the Civic Block area of downtown.

The Civic Block stretches from Clement to Queensway avenues and Water to Ellis streets. It is the hub of our vibrant cultural district, the center for many important government services and key to the implementation of the Downtown Plan.

The Civic Block is also an area in transition. The Police Services Building is relocating to Clement, Interior Health is building new offices on Ellis and the Kelowna Community Theatre and Memorial Arena buildings are reaching the end of their optimal lifespan. With so much activity and opportunity, a plan is needed to ensure these publicly-owned lands are developed in a thoughtful and financially-viable way.

Drop by at Stuart Park under the tent to see the concepts that local residents, businesses, organizations and members of the community helped create and will form the building blocks of the final plan:

Tuesday, July 7, 3 to 6 p.m.

Stuart Park Civic Plaza

Background, draft concepts and workshop outcomes will be available for review. Representatives from the City of Kelowna will be on hand to answer your questions and receive feedback.
