Planning is underway to guide how and where Kelowna grows in the next 20 years, and the city is asking you to get involved in a set up four upcoming expos to help shape its future. How the city grows is defined by several guiding documents, including the Official Community Plan (OCP), Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and 20-year Servicing Plan. Based on the 2040 growth scenario endorsed by Council last spring, a draft Future Land Use map has been developed to form one part of the overall growth strategy that will guide decisions on rezoning applications, investments in amenities and transportation, and prioritize utility and servicing improvements.

The expos will feature displays and hands-on, family-friendly activities to help participants explore a range of topics, such as transportation, parks, infill housing and future land use. Participants will receive a “passport to 2040” and be entered in a draw to win one of five gift certificates from a local business in each of Kelowna’s five urban centres.

“We are continuing to use unique engagement formats and participatory feedback options to encourage as much input from our residents as possible,” said Danielle Noble-Brandt, Policy and Planning Department Manager. “The OCP and TMP are framework plans that will guide our future land use and transportation investments to create a future city that is healthy, livable and sustainable.”
