See what’s planned for the Civic Block and have your say

Next steps will see the finalization of the plan and brought forward to City Council for endorsement in 2016.

The City of Kelowna reminds residents to share their feedback online for the Civic Block Preferred Plan by Sunday, Dec. 13.

A public open house was held Dec. 2 to present the preferred plan for the community-inspired vision to create dynamic civic spaces for gathering and celebrating, iconic buildings and active streets for walking and cycling.

The short-term plan outlines a mix of commercial and residential land use focusing on the redevelopment of the RCMP site, a central public plaza in the heart of the Cultural District and extension of the art walk to Doyle Avenue. The vision protects redevelopment of cultural sites and civic sites for the longer term.

Great cities have great downtowns. Help shape the future of downtown and visit getinvolved.kelowna.ca to view the plan and have a say or visit kelowna.ca/mydowntown for more information.

Next steps will see the finalization of the plan and brought forward to City Council for endorsement in 2016.
