Council adopted the 2014-2018 Financial Plan, resulting in a 2.49 per cent tax increase (equal to a total average increase of $42.13 for a residential property owner). For more information, visit kelowna.ca/budget.
Council received a report from Pacific Sport about activities in 2013. Highlights include the XploreSportZ youth program, physical literacy mentoring, athlete development and sport education.
Council received the report about Kelowna’s current inventory of industrial lands. The City of Kelowna requires a ready supply of industrial land to ensure a strong economic foundation. The report shows that the City is well served by its existing and future industrial land inventory and continued enforcement of industrial land use on non-industrial zoned properties is appropriate.
Council approved that a Royal Canadian Mounted Police helicopter land on the grassed area outside of the library on May 10 at 9 a.m. as part of a Police Week, Police and Partner Agencies Demonstrations.
