The City of Vernon is holding an Open House next Tuesday evening to fill residents in on its Capital Projects plan.
They include the next phase of the 30th Street improvements and the city’s cycling network.
Since adopting the Official Community Plan in 2008, the City of Vernon has been constructing walking and cycling infrastructure.
Projects constructed in 2017 include Phase 1 of the Kalamalka Lake Road multi-use path and the continuation of improvements on 30th Street.
The city says both routes promise to become significant regional and commuter connections as they form a link between the Village Green Centre and the Okanagan Rail Trail through downtown.
With the 2017 phases of these two projects complete, Vernon’s cycling network has grown to over 85kms of multi-use paths, trails, and on-road bike lanes.
Mayor Akbal Mund says Vernon is on the cusp of a big change as major connections are planned for the cycling network in the next two years.
The Open House is at the Vernon Rec Centre Tuesday, November 28th from 5 to 7 pm.
Residents and businesses will have the opportunity to the review the capital projects scheduled for 2018 and discuss the designs and impacts with the project teams.
Interested residents and business owners that are not able to attend the meeting and who would like more information regarding a project may contact the Infrastructure Management Department at 250-550-3634 or visit www.vernon.ca/capitalworks.
