Keith Thom – Council candidate
I would move that council re-examine the current OCP, particularly regarding Beach Ave. Rather than willy-nilly placement of commercial/large buildings placed in residential areas north of the core we should be searching out developers that would compile with a three-floor step back design starting in the core of Beach Ave.
We also need to aggressively lobby governments for infrastructure grants for sewers and sidewalks up Princeton and Trepanier.
Although homelessness is not a large issue affordable housing is. If we are to maintain a healthy balance of seniors and young families I will reach out to governments and developers to ensure that we make affordable rentals and home ownership an attainable goal.
Long-term should include a bypass starting with a second crossing in Kelowna. Short-term, traffic lights at Trepanier.
My local hero would be Ogopogo but as of yet I’ve never met or seen him/her.
