The City of Kelowna and Interior Health are working closely together on a Hospital Area Plan to guide future redevelopment and address parking and transportation needs.

Citizens are invited to review the on-street parking recommendations and discuss future land use needs with staff and consultants on:

Thursday, Nov. 3
4 – 6:30 p.m.
Clinical Academic Campus Lecture Theatre, 2312 Pandosy Street

Public input was gathered in the spring, online and in-person, about the on-street parking challenges and opportunities in the area. Parking occupancy counts were also collected at a variety of dates and times throughout the year. Based on these inputs, recommendations are being proposed to meet the changing needs of the area.

“Recommendations are focused on ensuring short-term parking is available for use by residents and visitors to the area and to minimize hospital related impacts on residential areas,” said Dave Duncan, Parking Services Manager. “Some of the measures proposed include short-term pay parking for spaces fronting the hospital, overnight resident only parking and adjustments to existing time restrictions.”

The City is also initiating a long-term land-use plan and neighbourhood transportation plan to guide future growth and development in the Health District and surrounding area east of Pandosy Street. This will consider appropriate uses and built form, and transportation and infrastructure needs to support health services in the area.

Visit the project page for more information about the Hospital Area Plan as well as a summary of the parking recommendations.
