The City of Kamloops will be hosting a series of neighbourhood meetings this year, beginning next week in Valleyview.
On Monday, April 15, Valleyview residents are invited to an open house and information session from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Valleyview secondary school, 1950 Valleyview Dr.
“What we’re trying to do is formalize the process and go into neighbourhoods, allow the opportunity for them to bring forward things that are specific to the area or that may be impacting that neighbourhood and just provide a touch point for people to be able to come and talk to whoever from the city,” city community and protective services director Byron McCorkell said. “Just trying to be a little more open, transparent.”
Subsequent meetings will be held for Juniper and Rose Hill residents on April 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Juniper Ridge elementary, 2540 Qu’Appelle Boulevard, and for Barnhartvale residents on April 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at RL Clemitson 5990 Todd Rd.
The meetings will begin with presentations from city staff addressing topics specific to those areas.
