The committee heard an internal group is meeting weekly on the matter, in addition to a communications sub-group that meets every other week.

Coun. Sadie Hunter has also put her name forward to act as a liaison between staff and council. Council will discuss her appointment at a future meeting.

City communications manager Wendy Heshka said the city has prepared a draft presentation, which will be presented to the public during open houses in the new year.

Other engagement will occur via a booth at Kamloops Blazers’ games and during presentations to community groups.

Meanwhile, the city’s Let’s Talk KCA page is online and active, with residents posing questions to the city. Community relations committee chair Coun. Kathy Sinclair noted discussion on the engagement website is detailed, respectful and civilized.
