District of West Kelowna staff have begun plans on a new program that will liven up the Westbank Centre.

Music in the Park is set to launch in 2012 as a program that will see local Okanagan artists perform in Westbank Community Park (near Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre).

Early plans indicate that in the months of July and August 2012, a different artist will perform once a week. The idea is to have the first concert kick off Westside Daze.

District staff indicated that the goal of the program is to bring people to the park to enjoy local talent and engage in their community.

District staff are considering the potential purchase of a portable stage that could be used for Music in the Park as well as other community events. The concerts will likely be free to attend and alcohol will be prohibited.

Early estimationsare the music program will cost about $20,000.
