Kelowna will remain the same size in the foreseeable future, Mayor Walter Gray said Monday.
Citing a boundary-review study underway since July, Kelowna City Council decided not to proceed with any boundary moves any time soon. The Council also directed staff to set aside any boundary-adjustment discussions with Lake Country at this time.
"The City is not interested in expanding for the sake of expanding," Gray said. "Certain conditions have changed since Council first asked staff to review options."
In the meantime, other work closer to Council priorities will take precedence, said Gray.
The city received a boundary request from Lake Country to address boundary relocation for properties along Beaver Lake Road; properties that pay taxes to Kelowna.
Council decided it would stick with its practice of considering only formal applications from individual property owners to adjust the city's boundary.
