Council Meeting
May 24, 2016

Strategic Plan 2016

Council was provided a first quarter update on its 2016-2018 Strategic Priorities which outlines initiatives intended to meet Council’s vision for the community. Council was advised that Memorial Park Amphitheatre and Skate Park construction are ahead of schedule and may be open in time for Westside Daze. Last Mountain Park tennis court construction is underway, expected to be complete in May.

Mobile App

Council was provided a demonstration on the Your West Kelowna, a mobile app aimed at helping people on the move to easily and quickly connect with the City. The free Your West Kelowna App, available for Apple and Android devices via the App Store and Google Play, was launched May 12 and provides a quick portal to recreation programming, facilities information, the West Kelowna business directory and more. Users can keep informed, whether at home or away, with quick access to news and events information, job postings and Council meeting information. A key feature of the app is a handy service request button which quickly lets users send in service requests to the City, including photos and mapping locations. For example, users who see a pothole or a streetlight that has burned out can snap a picture and send it directly to the City, including mapping location services. The app will be automatically installed on all City owned devices by May 27, 2016. Annual software maintenance fees are $450 and are included in the lnformation Services software maintenance budget.

3055 Thacker Drive Development Application

Council gave first and second readings to a Zoning Amendment Bylaw to rezone a 2.8 hectare parcel at 3055 Thacker Drive from Rural Residential Small Parcel to Single Detached residential to facilitate a 14-lot subdivision. The proposal includes the protection of a steep hillside area commonly associated with Kalamoir Regional park and a pedestrian access right of way that will connect Collens Hill Road to a proposed extension of Wales Road. The application will now be scheduled for a public hearing.

Sign Bylaw Review

Council was provided with information on the plan for a comprehensive review of its Sign Bylaw, one of Council’s strategic priorities for 2016. The bylaw will be reviewed to address key issues with the current bylaw including regulations to help promote neighbourhoods and centres in the community, fascia signs, election signs, sign lighting and sign setbacks. The review will involve public consultation including an open house, presentations to the Greater Westside Board of Trade and the City’s Economic Development Committee and referrals to sign companies, key agencies and local businesses.

Casa Loma Remedial Works

Council awarded the construction contract for Casa Loma Remedial Works in the amount of $554,045 to BC General Contracting. The works involve remediating the existing storm water ditches and installation of underground storm pipe, catch basins and manholes. Roadway improvements are also included in this project scope.
