Pandosy waterfront charrette planned

A two-day charrette (urban design workshop) Feb. 25 and 26 will be part of the process to craft a new plan for Pandosy Waterfront.

“The engagement process is underway to develop design guidelines for the neighbourhood, much like we did for the Downtown Plan, along with a site design for the seven City-owned lakefront properties on Abbott Street, just north of Cedar Avenue,” said Graham Hood, Strategic Land Development Manager for the City of Kelowna. “Our online engagement tool continues to be very active and the next step is the charrette.”

About 25 to 30 volunteers will participate, representing the diverse interests of the neighbourhood and Kelowna as a whole. The goal is to have a balanced group, looking at a variety of perspectives to come up with the best solution for the site - residents, businesses and community organizations will all be involved.

To sign up as a neighbourhood resident or as a Kelowna resident-at-large for the charrette, email [email protected] by end of day Feb. 11 with your name and contact information. Stakeholder groups have been contacted directly. If there are several volunteers representing any one interest group, names will be drawn in lottery style.

Even if you can't participate, you can follow the charrette progress, check out the work of the participants and share your thoughts about the outcomes.
