Update: August 2020
Bottle Drive Support - Thank You!
Although Danae thanked everyone in person at their homes, she wanted to pass along a huge thank you once again to everyone who provided support during her bottle drive. Danae is a local community member, and two time provincial champion, for Team BC Wakeboard and was raising money for competition and training.
“Thank you so much for all your help in the bottle drive. I am overwhelmed by the support I received. I also wanted to say how nice it was to meet so many wonderful people. Thank you once again.”
Good luck Danae!
Register Your Bike
Did you know that you can register your bike to help identify it if it gets stolen?
The City of Kelowna has signed up with Project 529 Garage, a North American wide non-profit that works with cities, police, schools and businesses to help organize everyone against cycling black market crime.

2nd Round of Curbside Mosquito Control Treatment

Planning for the Future
A draft of the City of Kelowna’s Official Community Plan is expected to be completed this fall and will be followed by a proposed final round of public engagement before the end of the year. As well, the final phase of public engagement to seek input on the City’s Transportation Master Plan should start in late summer. We are monitoring the City and will advise when these become available for public input.
One aspect of the City’s Transportation Master Plan is the Okanagan Gateway Transportation Study. The Okanagan Gateway Transportation Study will define future projects, programs and policies that will improve connections to Kelowna International Airport and UBC Okanagan. It will support the vision of the airport, university and surrounding area – including Quail Ridge -- as a growing, vibrant and connected hub that benefits the whole region.
Attached for your information is the report that City Council received on this study (dated July 13, 2020).
Bubble Tea Café, located at Bay #1 - 1945 Pier Mac Way (in the newest industrial complex) is now open. Delivery and take out are available.
