By 2040, it is expected that another 45,000 residents will call Kelowna home. At our first Stakeholder Plug-In Session of 2021, hosted earlier this week, Robert Miles, OCP Project Planner with the City of Kelowna, shared an overview of Kelowna's 2040 Official Community Plan (OCP), which is the document that will guide how the city grows over the next 20 years. 

As the final engagement phase of the OCP is currently taking place, the primary goal of Robert's high-level overview was to encourage tourism businesses to get involved and share their thoughts on the direction the City is taking in shaping Kelowna's future.

Kelowna's 204 Official Community Plan

We hope attendees were inspired to share their thoughts and ideas by contacting Robert directly. If you were unable to join us for the session, we would encourage you to learn more about the OCP and to provide your feedback through the online discussion forums on the City's website

Thank you to everyone who attended our first session of the year—we appreciated your patience as we worked through some technical glitches. We are actively working on the next Stakeholder Plug-In Session, tentatively scheduled for June, and will share details once all the logistics have been confirmed. We hope to see you there!

About Tourism Kelowna's Stakeholder Plug-in Sessions

These complimentary sessions—which were paused in 2020 to give us the opportunity to develop a virtual experience—are designed to be a forum for Tourism Kelowna stakeholders to "plug-in" to information on projects, issues or opportunities within our communities.
