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.

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. 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 honest dialogue and a cooperative tone 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 Open House to present the shared vision for the Legacy Neighbourhood.  

Following staff review we are still in full swing towards a council meeting, however, with the pending Zoning Bylaw update and upcoming municipal elections, staff have requested that we delay our public hearing until late fall or early winter. As such, 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
