Public Engagement

Engaged Communities are Strong Communities

The City of Kelowna is strengthening the ways in which it engages with the you.

The City of Kelowna is a progressive municipality. We interact with the public in many ways and are accessible to residents.

The City frequently seeks input regarding: priorities for the community, land use planning, projects and initiatives.

Depending on the nature of the project, the City of Kelowna’s public engagement includes various means of community involvement:

  • We inform by making timely information, updates and news available through a variety of channels
  • We consult with key experts, consultants, effected community members or groups and key stakeholders to bring multiple views and opinions into the process
  • We involve the public, experts, and special interest groups in planning, analysis and decision-making opportunities
  • We collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams, external advisors, community members and others to work together on solutions
  • We empower others to be involved or to lead or contribute to projects or initiatives

Policy Development

The process was conducted over three phases:

Phase 1 - Best Practices Research
Phase 2 - City Council Endorsement of Guiding Principles & Public Input
Phase 3 - Policy and Engage Framework formalized April 14, 2014.
