KAMLOOPS - Kamloops residents are being encouraged to participate in discussions surrounding affordable housing in the city.

Several community meetings have been scheduled over the next month, according to the City of Kamloops website, where residents can have their input in a round table discussion on the affordable housing strategy for Kamloops.

The city says the strategy will guide housing-related investments and activities over the next five or more years across the full housing continuum. 

Beginning last night, March 7, community meetings have been scheduled throughout the city to provide residents of all ages the opportunity to have their say on housing needs and priorities for specific neighbourhoods. The city says children and youth are welcome to participate in discussions, or illustrate their ideas at the drawing table.

You're encouraged to attend the community meetings specific to your community.

Last night, a meeting was held at Valleyview Secondary for Valleyview, Barnhartvale, Dallas, Juniper Ridge and Rose Hill residents.

Tonight, residents of Aberdeen, Pineview Valley, Dufferin and Upper Sahali can go to the Hal Rogers Centre at 2025 Summit Dr. for their meeting starting at 6:30 p.m.

Next Wednesday, March 14, Brock and North Kamloops residents can go to NorKam Secondary at 730 12 St. at 6:30 p.m.

On March 15, a community meeting will be hosted at Arthur Stevenson Elementary at 6:30 p.m. for Westsyde, Westmount and Batchelor Heights residents.

A final meeting will be held March 28 at the Sandman Centre for residents of downtown, the West End, Sagebrush, Lower Sahali, Rayleigh and Heffley Creek.
