PENTICTON - Penticton citizens interested in a revitalized Skaha lakefront will have an opportunity to provide input and hear more about a major revitalization project proposed for the Skaha Marina area in the coming days.

The proposal put forward by Trio Marine Group would see an expanded 100-slip marina featuring day and seasonal rentals as well as recreational craft such as personal watercraft, kayaks and paddle boards.

An expanded restaurant and 110,000-square-foot waterpark are also proposed for the lake frontage surrounding Skaha Marina. The phased proposal would see most of the improvements completed by 2017.

Trio Marine Group has scheduled a number of information sessions throughout June, including the following dates and locations:
- June 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Saturday Markets in downtown Penticton.
- June 8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Skaha Lake Marina and beach area.

Several meetings will also take place with stakeholders such as the Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Penticton, Penticton Rotary Club, the Dragon Boat Club and city committees. A meeting on June 29 will be held for public input on the proposals, though the location still to be determined.
