Highlights of January 20 City Council meeting
January 22, 2014 - 8:41 AM
Safety Certificate of Recognition
Council accepted certificates of recognition from the BC Municipal Safety Association on behalf of staff. The City’s Health & Safety and Return to Work program received high audit scores. This contributes to the City’s safety policy, which states “Our families have the right to expect us to all come home uninjured at the end of every workday. We all make safety our business. An injury and accident free workplace is our goal.”
Council supported the public engagement process outlined by staff for the redevelopment of the Pandosy Waterfront area. Parameters of redevelopment include the incorporation of a paddle centre, park and waterfront walkway, with consideration given to pedestrian connections, riparian setbacks and parking bylaw requirements. Public engagement and rezoning are to be completed by Fall 2014.
City Park Concept Plan
Council directed staff to work with Tourism Kelowna to develop a concept plan to test the feasibility of a Visitor Centre at the base of Queensway (i.e. closest to the lake). A revision of the City Park Concept Plan incorporating feedback, excluding a Visitor Centre building, will be presented at a future Council meeting.
