City of Kelowna looks for feedback on transportation plan

The conversation will explore transportation options for the future

The City of Kelowna is asking residents for their opinion to help shape transportation choices in the Central Okanagan region over the next 20 years.

“Transportation across the region is critical to our economic competitiveness and quality of life,” said Rafael Villarreal, manager, Integrated Transportation Department, City of Kelowna and administrator of the Sustainable Transportation Partnership of the Central Okanagan.

“Technology and environmental priorities are changing the way we travel and the decisions we make today will significantly influence our future opportunities.”

It will be the Central Okanagan’s first region-wide transportation plan.
