KELOWNA - If you didn’t make it to the Okanagan Rail Trail open house, it doesn’t mean you can’t voice your opinion.

Residents can give their thoughts how the 48-kilometre trail should be developed through an online survey until March 27, according to a media release from the inter-jurisdictional development team.

Information gleaned from the survey and last week’s open houses will be considered during the intitial basic design and construction and then archived for future consideration.

Initial plans are to construct a basic four-metre wide trail made of solidified crushed aggregate, sloped for drainage with common signage.

Future plans are to pave the commuter-oriented sections of the trail in Lake Country and Kelowna although the timing of that depends on what each jurisdiction can afford.

The initial development plan will go before the individual councils and boards of the partners for consideration later this spring.
