Light up and colour up Penticton

A plan to project lighted images on downtown Penticton buildings will be presented to the city council, tonight, Monday.

Kerri Milton with the Downtown Penticton Association and resident Tarik Sayeed will discuss the projection art, which is part of the ongoing One World Penticton.

The plan entails projecting local artists along with their art on to buildings in the 200 block of Main Street at night.

"The month of February is usually gloomy and dull, so the intent is to fill our buildings with bright vibrant colours and moving images," said Sayeed. "This projection art is also our very first in the Okanagan, so this is pretty much history in the making."

If the presentation is approved by the council, Sayeed hopes to do the projection during the last week of February.

One World Penticton is a celebration of multiculturalism including the screening of international films, cooking, dance, workshops and more, unfolding in the city this month.

Other presentations on the agenda include Milton discussing Benjamin Moore, RDOS budget information and a funding request from the Penticton and District Resources Society.

There will be staff reports on a zoning amendment bylaw for 3480 Skaha Lake Road; renewing a temporary use permit for 825 Westminster Ave. W;  proposed changes at an intersection, regarding Dartmouth Road with Warren Avenue and Okanagan Avenue East;  signing officers and banker for 2014 and a UBCM convention 2016 bid.

A public hearing on the Spiller Road Reservoir Road neighbourhood concept plan is also being held tonight at City Hall.
