A look back at the City’s 2018 highlights

December 20, 2018

With the end of the year approaching, it’s a good time to reflect on events, projects and initiatives from 2018 that supported our growing city so that Kelowna continues to be a great place to live, work and play.

Residents, business owners and visitors are invited to take a look at the City of Kelowna 2018 highlights for a dynamic overview of the City’s accomplishments, projects and service delivery.

A new City Manager was selected by Council in 2018, with Doug Gilchrist stepping into the role of leading the City’s administration.

Highlights of 2018 also demonstrate increased investments in public safety, commitments to address homelessness through the endorsed Journey Home Strategy, support for increased affordable housing options, and delivering key transportation infrastructure projects. In addition, the City broke ground on the $86 million Kelowna Integrated Water Phase 1 project.

The Imagine Kelowna vision was endorsed this year and will guide the City’s strategies to 2040, including the Official Community Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Cultural Master Plan and Intelligent City Strategy – all now underway.
