Opportunities to engage with us
Since May 2016 we've been asking residents to create a new community vision. What kind of community do we aspire to be? What are our core values? How can Kelowna adapt to the future? Citizens of all ages were encouraged share their vision of Kelowna and help create a thriving community for current and future generations. With more than 4000 resident contributions, Imagine Kelowna is a community vision for building a prosperous and sustainable city in the face of an uncertain future.
During the planning stage, we seek input on upcoming park, transportation, utility and community projects through open houses, workshops, surveys, online tools and social media. For a listing of current projects, see the Projects page.

Public hearings are held every second Tuesday to invite public input on specific bylaws being considered by Council. These include property development zoning changes. Attend a public hearing and provide an opinion on the specific topic under discussion.
Submit written input

Join a council committee
We have a number of different Council Committees which provide recommendations to council on a wide range of programs, policies and services. Opportunities to join a council committee become available from time to time.
