The City of Kelowna’s new online engagement site, https://getinvolved.kelowna.ca/ , has launched! Get Involved Kelowna is where residents will learn about the most recent projects and initiatives open to input or find results of what we heard and next steps. We encourage you to explore the new site and register to receive news about the latest City projects. Find timely public input opportunities and help share policy, projects and other initiatives in your community. Meet the people at the City of Kelowna who are listening to your feedback for each initiative.
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!
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.

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.
