Report: stuck in the middle

Kelowna finds itself in a unique position at this point in its growth as a city.

That according to the latest report in the Imagine Kelowna project which looks at where the city is going over the next few decades.

"Kelowna is at an awkward point in its growth. It is neither a major urban centre, nor a small one," the report's draft vision states.

"While this is scary for some people, and others see it as an opportunity, the reality is that Kelowna is not a small town anymore. Kelowna is experiencing the challenges of growth, but also its benefits."

The report goes on to say the city has entered a new phase in its existence with new challenges at a time when constant change is a reality.

As Kelowna looks at challenge in transportation, housing and social inclusion and equality, the report says the city will have to "re-think how to do business and approach problems from a new perspective."

Imagine Kelowna engaged thousands of Kelowna residents about their vision for the next two decades and beyond, compiling hundreds of hours of interviews and hundreds of pages of written notes.

The result, a comprehensive list of values, principles and goals, which will be presented to the community for input over the next three months.
