Property Purchased for Future Parkland
The City of West Kelowna is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to purchase a property for future athletic field development in the Rose Valley area. The property, 1506 Rose Meadow Drive, is located adjacent to the Rosewood Sports Field and is 3.72 acres in size. The purchase price of the property is $450,000 and will be paid for by parkland acquisition charges collected at the time of development. Completion for the purchase of the property is scheduled to take place in December of 2017. The City has yet to develop a park plan for the new site; however, it will be considered as a potential site to accommodate a soccer facility currently proposed by the Westside Youth Soccer Association.
Municipal Office Space Leased
The City has entered into an agreement to lease office space in the Lakeview Village development on Anders Road in West Kelowna. The City anticipates that approximately 20 staff will relocate from the current Municipal Hall location, 2760 Cameron Road, to the new location by the spring of 2018. It has not yet been determined what services will be provided from the new location. The move is intended to help alleviate crowded office conditions at Municipal Hall.
