KELOWNA - The plan for adding 40,000 new residents to Kelowna over the next 20 years calls for new construction to be concentrated in five so-called urban town centres: City Centre, Pandosy, Capri-Landmark, Midtown (which includes Orchard Park) and Rutland.

That list doesn’t include the area of Kelowna where the largest group of candidates for council actually come from: Glenmore. Of the 25 people running for mayor and council, six – about one quarter – are from Glenmore.

None are from Rutland or Midtown. Or, for that matter from less urban areas like East Kelowna. By broadly describing the Mission as somewhere south of Pandosy all the way to Cedar Creek Winery, there’s another five.

There are lots of reasons to choose a particular candidate and one of those reasons may be where they live in the city, especially if they live in the same neighbourhood as you.
