Kelowna City Council meeting highlights

Arab and Appaloosa servicing options

Council reviewed options to address future land use designation and servicing incompatibilities in the Arab and Appaloosa Road neighborhood, and went with the recommendation to conduct further public consultation in the form of an informational mail-out and survey, with a public open house on Dec. 14.

Water Asset Management Plan

Council endorsed the Water Asset Management Plan, which details the infrastructure required to support the City’s water service (a replacement value of $417 million). Managing this vital infrastructure now and into the future will ensure the City Water Utility customers continue to receive safe reliable water long-term.

Council gave first, second and third readings to amendments to the Traffic Bylaw, including more specific language and details pertaining to road usage, hoarding permits, temporary traffic control requirements for construction on City ‘right-of-ways’ (ROW) and additional tools to address illegal occurrences that take place on City ROWs.

Council approved, in principle, the City of Kelowna Sponsorship and Advertising policy and program guidelines for a five-year pilot program. Research has indicated that the City could expect to generate about $1.2 million in new gross revenue annually (about $800,000 new net revenue annually).
