Get involved

Find out how you can get involved with City-led projects, policy development, customer service improvements or development in your neighbourhood.

Be Heard. Get Involved. Take Action.

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 are encouraged share their vision of Kelowna and help create a thriving community for current and future generations. Visit Imagine Kelowna to join the largest city-wide conversation in history!

City projects

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 Projects

Register at Get Involved to join the conversation online on timely projects and initiatives.

Participate at a public hearing

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

Unable to attend a public hearing? Submit your thoughts about a particular public hearing/public input item in writing.

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. Talk to a committee member about your concerns or become a committee member by applying online or contact the Office of the City Clerk at cityclerk@kelowna.ca
