About the West Kelowna Civic Centre Project

The West Kelowna Civic Centre Project is a new multi-use development planned for Westbank Centre. The proposed development is the result of years of discussion, planning and public engagement about the community's desire for a centre of civic life.

If approved, it will include a new three-storey City Hall building, owned by the City of West Kelowna, a public square for community use, a commercial building and two residential buildings constructed and owned by the Strategic Development Group, a consortium of local investors.

The project will also include the renovation required to return the current temporary Municipal Hall at Mt. Boucherie to its intended use as a community centre for all residents’ use.

The City Hall includes above-ground parking and underground parking and is located near many existing amenities including the offices of other levels of government, the Westbank Library, the Westbank Transit Exchange and shopping opportunities.

About the Referendum

The City of West Kelowna needs to borrow money in order to be able to build the City Hall portion of the Civic Centre Project, much the same as you would if you wanted to build a house.

The City needs to ask you, the taxpayers, for your support for a bylaw that would allow us to borrow up to $7.7 million.

We will ask you to do so by voting in a referendum on September 17, 2016.
