Official Community Plan 2040: Our Kelowna as we Grow

Introduction:
50,000 new residents will call Kelowna home in 2040. To accommodate this growth, the City of Kelowna is currently undergoing an update to our Official Community Plan. We collected feedback from you on ideas for changes in land uses until October 31, 2018.

The City of Kelowna will use this information to help develop a new land use plan that will guide future development. A draft plan will be developed in 2019 and at that time you will be notified if your idea was incorporated.

What type of land

What type of land is not included in this idea generator?
Through the Imagine Kelowna consultation we heard that Kelowna should protect agricultural land and concentrate on growing vibrant urban centres and limit urban sprawl. The City has a Permanent Growth Boundary to focus growth within those boundaries. Therefore, ideas to re-develop agricultural lands or lands outside of the Permanent Growth Boundary are not being considered through this idea generator.


CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Leave a question for the project manager about the Official Community Plan Future Land Use call out.

    Hi. I live at the Corner of Clifton and Clement. Every morning i take Spall Rd to get to Enterprise or to Hw97. The traffic is heavy on Spall because cars are coming from all Glenmore area and there is only Spall Rd to take us all to town. My vision for 2040 is to build a bridge for fast lane traffic from Spall over/cross Hw97 to Spall of other side of Hw97 towards Springfield. Additionally we need two lines turning left from Spall to Clement. One line is always collecting cars and slowing down the traffic. There will be more cars coming, once the construction by Clement area by new police station is completed. Nobody will be able to drive properly... My last idea for today: Driving on Clement towards to new Police station, starting after Gordon 2 lines are going into 1. Now is the time to project 2 lines there before new construction projects will be completed. Emergency vehicles like police/ambulance will really benefit from it. Thanks. Dmitriy

    Suggestion: - Widen Lakeshore to two lanes - Re-open Gordon drive past OKM to two lanes to accommodate for the heavy traffic that goes up and down the hill. Lakeshore is a nightmare during the morning and afternoon rush hours. That road NEEDS widening

    Danika Asked almost 2 years ago

    There was also a study done in 2017 to look at traffic patterns on Lakeshore and Gordon, which found that there is free-flowing traffic 23 hours/day, with congestion for only about one hour total. Check out the video to see when delays occur and what is being done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERKQP2rqHE8

    Why can't RU6 lots be rezoned to RU7 in Kelowna's north end? Why is it some obscure committee who decides who gets RU7 ???

    dpostma Asked almost 2 years ago

    The RU7 Infill Housing process is an innovative project that involves making changes to some of the City’s established neighbourhoods over time with the aim of improving housing diversity. The process involved a wide array of stakeholders through both a Community Panel and Evaluation Committee.

    As a leading-edge process, it is important that we carefully evaluate its implementation before considering whether to expand further. The evaluation process takes time. Enough projects have to be completed so that we can get a clear sense of how it is working out. Staff are looking to report to Council with an update and early evaluation results in the coming months.
