I would like to acknowledge that we are gathered today on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the syilx/Okanagan people.
This evening, Council will hold both a Public Hearing and a Regular Meeting.
The purpose of the Hearing is to hear from the public on matters contained in the various bylaws which, if adopted, will amend Kelowna 2040 - Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 12300 and Zoning Bylaw No. 12375.
After the close of the Public Hearing, Council will then debate and vote on the proposed bylaws at the Regular Meeting that follows.
Council has been provided with the information, correspondence, petitions or reports that have been received concerning the subject bylaws. This information is available to the public online at Kelowna.ca/council or by request to the Office of the City Clerk.
For those participating this evening, or who have already submitted letters to Council, a reminder that this Hearing and the Meeting is open to the public and all representations to Council form part of the public record. A live audio-video feed is being broadcast and recorded on kelowna.ca.
Following the close of the Public Hearing, no further information from the applicant or members of the public will be accepted by Council.
