City paving stone sale

Paving stones salvaged from the Downtown Revitalization project in Penticton will be available for purchase during four days this month.

Mayor Garry Litke described the paver sale as an affordable opportunity for residents to revitalize their own backyards.

"Salvaging and selling paving stones means the project's ripple effects will continue throughout Penticton," he said.

Approximately, 1,660 square metres of the bricks have been salvaged from the project along Westminster Avenue and Martin Street. The city yards facility does not have room for storage and rather than discard them, the sale is planned to clear inventory.

The stones will be available for $75 per pallet, with approximately 280 to 300 bricks per pallet.

Some will also go to a good cause, with a small amount donated to the South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls.

Representatives contacted the city earlier this year about acquiring stones to build a path around one of their buildings to improve access to an eagle pen.

Sale dates and times are: 1 to 4 p.m., Friday, May 23

7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 24

1 to 4 p.m., Friday, May 30

7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 31

Project updates and construction progress on the Martin-Westminster project are available on the city's website at
