City to hold open house forum on parkade expansion proposal

Open house for expansion of the library parkade and a new parkade by the Memorial Arena.

The City of Kelowna will host an open house for residents to learn more about the proposal for an expansion of the library parkade downtown and the construction of a new parkade on the Memorial Arena property, between the arena and the Kelowna Heritage Museum.

The open house will be held on Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.

Residents will have the opportunity to view information panels and discuss the project with city staff.

The city and Interior Health are working together to move a number of Interior Health’s community services and programs onto Doyle Avenue.

The project encourages the development of the downtown area with higher density land use and upgrades for parking.

Bringing nearly 1,000 jobs into the area will also stimulate business, public transit and housing, say city officials.The parkades will accommodate the development and provide more weekend and evening parking.

The city says the borrowing will be offset by project revenues so there is no expected impact on city property taxes.
