Truths, Myths, and Kelowna’s Transportation Master Plan Forum

December 1, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Climate Change, urban sprawl, habitat destruction, sedentary lifestyles, and many more issues are connected to our land use choices. Those choices are heavily influenced by the way we build and manage our transportation infrastructure.

Kelowna is in the final stages of developing its transportation master plan (TMP), a plan that is a critical part of addressing the aforementioned issues. Join The Kelowna Sustainability Coalition and Institute for Community Engagement Research to hear from three experts on how the proposed TMP intersects with the important values provided by our landscape and environment in Kelowna.

Panelists:

  • Transportation Success Stories with Radical Results: Dr. Gord Lovegrove, Associate Professor of SMARTer Growth at the UBC School of Engineering
  • Housing Impacts: Dr. Andrea Craig, Assistant Professor, Economics, Philosophy and Political Science, UBCO
  • Kelowna’s Transportation Plan: Visions and Realities: Peter Truch, Senior Transportation Planning Engineer and Small Business Owner
