  • The mayor has said and it is on record if we cut Trio a cheque for $ 200,000 it is over. Will the city cancel the lease with Trio to get them out of Skaha Park ?

    Council voted to move forward with the revised agreement last December. Trio must now satisfy all of the conditions precedent by 2018 in order to proceed.

  • How does the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee intend to save our parks from commercialization ?

    taffy asked over 2 years ago

    Hi Taffy,

    In Section 7 of Draft #2 of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, the Steering Committee recommends updates to City bylaws and the creation of a policy to regulate commercial uses in parks in a way that meets the expectations of the community. This preliminary work was shared with the public at the Open House on May 1. The feedback on this work is now being collected and will be shared with the Committee to determine next steps. Watch for more information coming soon. If you haven't already, take a look at the work and complete a feedback form.


  • Has the P&Rec Master Com, Mayor and councillors reviewed/consulted the thousands of PICTURES, VIDEOS, SIGNED PETITIONS and LETTERS from Penticton taxpayers and Tourists who objected in 2015 to the COP plans for commercial development at Skaha Park? If the City truly cares and is listening, why not do that?

    Hi there,

    The Parks & Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee, staff and the Mayor and Council absolutely want to hear from citizens about the Parks & Recreation Master Plan.

    If you have petitions and letters related to the work of this group, please do bring them forward. You have a few options to have them formally considered:

    1. Request to appear as a delegation at the next Steering Committee meeting. (I've included the link to the form.)

    2. Address the documents to Mayor and Council, provide them to Dana Schmidt, Corporate Officer, and request they be included in the Council agenda.

    For your information, the Committee is having an Open House on May 1, 4:30-7:30 pm at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre South Lobby. FYI, Draft 2 will be posted on here by April 24.

    Hope this helps.


     


  • If the City has engaged Urban Systems and a volunteer committee to draft up a Parks & Rec. Master Plan, why is there a need for two councillors to be on the committee? Does council have doubts as to the effectiveness of the committee and Urban Systems? If so, why hire Urban systems to do this if they are not going to listen to what they say. It would seem like a conflict of interest to have council members sit in on the committee even though they don't have voting privileges. What real purpose do they serve other than to be a "burr under the saddle" if they didn't like things.

    Hi Crashcrippleton,

    It is important to remember that the job of committees is to provide feedback and guidance to Council. Council ultimately has to make the decision to endorse the Parks and Recreation Master Plan and needs to feel confident in the process that was followed. This is a standard approach across municipal government.
