Fighting development

Citizens For a Livable Downtown has come out against the City's downtown re-development plan.

The ad hoc group has raised objection with the plan it says was initiated by Westcorp President, Phil Milroy.

Group spokesperson, John Zeger, says the group has met twice since the first city sponsored open house in September.

The group will go public with its concerns Saturday, November 10 at 1:30 at the downtown Kelowna Library.

"At this meeting arguments against the Milroy plan will be presented along with counter-proposals for how the area in question could be better redeveloped," says Zeger.

"Objections will center around the height and density of the buildings in the proposal and not the need for redevelopment."

Zeger says there will be a 'public visioning session,' an element he says was not part of the City's public participation program.

A City of Kelowna sponsored open house will be held Tuesday, November 6 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. in the Grand Hotel Ballroom.
