Dear Neighbours,

We wanted to offer an update to the community regarding the Legacy Neighbourhood approvals timeline and path forward following nearly 10 months of Public Engagement and City of Kelowna Staff Review on the Final Legacy Neighbourhood Plan.

With the initial feedback from our October Listening Tour, we crafted a revised design vision for the Legacy Neighbourhood reflecting and balancing what we heard with what the lands can provide in completing the community with a focus on a new, full-sized public playing field. In February, we invited all Kettle Valley residents to provide additional community design ideas as an opportunity to further our face-to-face discussions, allowing both open dialogue and collaboration towards finalizing the Revised Legacy Neighbourhood Design. Finally in April, following the submission of our OCP Amendment and Rezoning application, we unveiled the final plan at our Community Open House to present the shared vision for the Legacy Neighbourhood.

Following staff review, we are working hard to finalize a few outstanding technical items, and then anticipate going before Council sometime this winter. As such, subsequent to Council approval, we are targeting to have shovels in the ground to deliver this exciting new neighbourhood, including the full-size soccer field for spring/summer of 2023!

We will keep the community informed as we progress through the fall, we thank you for your continued interest + support.

Yours sincerely,
Village of Kettle Valley
