KELOWNA - For the first time, mayor Colin Basran will be taking over the City of Kelowna’s Twitter channel to host a conversation about a new community vision for the city.

Residents, organizations and businesses can share how they imagine Kelowna during a live Twitter Town Hall:

Thursday, June 16
1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Connect with @cityofkelowna and follow the #ImagineKelowna hashtag

“This is an exciting time to imagine Kelowna’s future,” said Mayor Basran. “The Twitter Town Hall is one way the community can come together at the same place and time and take part in a compelling conversation to share their vision with me on the future of our city.”

During the Twitter Town Hall, the Mayor will ask a series of questions to the community and share his own thoughts. Participants will have the opportunity to share what opportunities and challenges lie ahead and discuss how, collectively, the City, partners and citizens can position Kelowna to thrive now and into the future

The Twitter Town Hall is part of city-wide conversations for the Imagine Kelowna initiative, which looks to create a long-term vision for the community, made by the community. This process will guide decision-making and ensure Kelowna is adaptable and resilient to change over the next 25 years.

The Twitter Town Hall is one of many ways to share ideas and opinions. Those who are unable take part in the live Twitter chat can join the discussion at one of many events throughout the summer, submit a questionnaire, or share ideas or thoughts on the Idea Wall online at
