Kelowna’s Airport Way to get a little longer

Part of Quail Ridge Boulevard to be renamed as Airport Way.

Airport Way is getting a little longer.

Kelowna city council has approved a request to rename the easterly end of Quail Ridge Boulevard Airport Way to match the road across Highway 97 that bears the same name. The existing Airport Way is the road that leads to the Kelowna International Airport.

According to the city, the request for the name change came from several area property owners, including one that owns the site of a planned new hotel. The only property address that would be affected by the name change is owned by Midwest Ventures Ltd., which will pay the costs associated with the change.

The hotel planned for the site will be the first near Kelowna’s airport.

City staff said in addition to the applicants, area residents were canvassed about the name change and agreed with it.

An application to build the hotel is expected to be filed with city hall in the near future.
