Kelowna holds open house for preferred civic block plan

Residents are invited to attend an open house to view drawings of the Civic Block preferred plan

Residents are invited to attend an open house to view drawings of the Civic Block preferred plan and learn more about the community process that was followed, the public space improvements, and the short and long term plans for development.

“Over the last eight months, representatives from the arts, culture, business, residents, and community members worked with City staff and consultants to develop a plan for the Civic Block area of downtown,” said planner specialist, Ross Soward.

“They envisioned the Civic Block as a place with dynamic civic spaces for gathering and celebrating, iconic buildings for arts and culture, and active streets for walking and cycling.”

The Plan incorporates the area as a complete community where people can live, work and play.

Representatives from the City will be on hand to answer questions.

Unable to attend the open house? Residents will have a chance to view the drawings and share feedback through getinvolved.kelowna.ca starting Nov. 30 through to Dec. 13.

Feedback from the open house and input from the online engagement tool will be shared with Council when they review the plan in early 2016.

It will be held Dec. 2, 2015 3 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at the Kelowna Community Theatre
