Downtown revitalization and controversial construction on tonight's council agenda

PENTICTON - There’s a packed agenda for tonight’s city council meeting, including a public hearing, economic development opportunities and new plans for the revitalization of the downtown centre.

Council will look at options for the first phase of the revitalization of Main Street, which includes new sidewalk plans for the 100 and 200 block of Main Street, and a 25 per cent reimbursement for construction costs from businesses that line the street.

Also up for discussion are the zoning amendments that need to be made before construction of the hospital tower expansion begins.

Council will also look at development plans of an apartment building on Scott Avenue, which received mixed reviews from the public during a public hearing earlier in the year.

The public hearing starts at 6 p.m. Monday, October 6, 2014 in Council Chambers at City Hall. The regular city council meeting will follow the public hearing.
