$675K for new bathroom

The City of Kelowna plans to spend nearly $700,000 for new washrooms and change rooms at Boyce-Gyro Beach Park.

The new year-round washrooms would replace two washrooms situated at the park.

The original plan was to upgrade and renovate the central washroom, originally constructed in 1969, at a cost of about $350,000.

Upgrades did not include replacing the roof or addressing the aging construction or external appearance.

Instead, staff are asking for an additional $324,000 to construct a new washroom and change facility that will incorporate modern standards in durability, layout, daylighting and security.

The washrooms would be universally accessible, and open year round, as opposed to the current washrooms, which are closed during winter months.

The facility would also include external showers and lockers for storage.

City council will be asked to approve the new direction, and the appropriation of the additional funding from the capital opportunities and partnership program ($100,000), and the Queensway transit security pavilion ($224,000).
