The lakes beauty

I have had the privilege to visit Geneva Switzerland as well as many other European cities but I zero in on Geneva as it more closely relates to Kelowna in a variety of ways.

Geneva's lake is approximately as long as lake Okanagan but much wider. Their lake surround has remained accessible to the public as their government, years ago, decided to limit hotels and apartments along the lake to 5 storeys. Lake Geneva remains clean enough to swim in and views have not been obstructed.

It is a shame that our Council does not follow a plan that would afford the same beauty to these lake shores.
