Downtown Revitalization - Development and New Parkades
The City and Interior Health are working together to move a number of Interior Health’s community services and programs onto Doyle Avenue in Kelowna’s downtown.
The project encourages the development of the downtown area with higher density land use and upgrades for better, safer parking. Bringing nearly 1000 jobs into the downtown area will also stimulate business, transit and housing in the area.
To accommodate the development and provide more weekend and evening parking the City is expanding the library parkade and building a new parkade on the Memorial Arena property (Doyle Avenue and Ellis Street).
The City received electorate approval through an alternative approval process to borrow $15 million for the parkade expansion and construction.
Public Information Session
The City held an open house on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 to provide an oppportunity for the public to meet with city staff and learn more about the project and the alternative approval process.
