Open house for new RCMP detachment
Kelowna residents will get their chance to learn more about the new RCMP building slated to be built at the corner of Clement Avenue and Richter Street.
There will be two open houses at the Royal Anne Hotel with representatives on hand to answer questions about the project, the elector approval process and the proposed borrowing arrangement.
The first session is Thursday afternoon from 3:30-6:30 p.m. and the second session will take place on Monday, March 10 at the same place and time.
The City says its finally time for a change, and the current 50-year-old facility no longer meets the required building codes and policing standards.
Cost for the project will be just over $42-million which the city will borrow from the province. And taxpayers would begin feeling the impact in 2015.
Anyone unable to attend the open house can view the same project information online, under Police Services Building.
