November 2021 update: What we heard


Through two rounds of public consultation in 2021, residents and members of the community had the opportunity to share their feedback about what features and elements of the City Hall/Library Building were most important. In the summer, the community provided feedback on the Preliminary Design, which included: customer experience options, landscaping, lighting, seating and library services. In the fall, we asked for your input on the Detailed Design to help guide the final design of the building and area. Thank you to everyone who took the time to provide us with feedback.

Below are summaries of what we heard through each round of consultation.

What we heard - Preliminary Design

From June 14-July 4, 2021, we asked for public feedback to help inform the Preliminary Design of the City Hall/Library Building.

What we heard - Detailed Design

From September 20-October 3, 2021, we asked for your feedback on the Detailed Design to help guide the final design of the building.

How we got here

Beginning in 2021, West Kelowna will see the design and construction of its first City Hall since its incorporation in 2007. A reserve was established as savings to fund the design and construction.

With the momentum of infrastructure investment well underway for water, sewer, roads and sidewalks, it is now time to move forward with delivering a suitable place for City administration. This will allow the City to consolidate its administration resulting in financial and work flow efficiencies. Also, Mt. Boucherie Community Centre will be returned to the Greater Westside area residents to enjoy.

Key dates

  • June 14 - July 4 - Preliminary Design consultation
  • September 20 - October 3 - Detailed Design consultation
  • Fall 2021 - City Hall/Library Building construction begins
  • Winter 2022 - Construction anticipated to be complete

About the project

The City-owned site located at 3731 Old Okanagan Highway is soon to be a vibrant area that provides greater civic services. With its proximity to Westbank Centre, Memorial Park, Johnson Bentley Aquatic Centre (JBMAC) and the Annette Beaudreau Memorial Amphitheatre, the area will be a welcoming place to gather and a catalyst to revitalization. These are exciting times to celebrate how we serve the Greater Westside and all it has to offer as a vibrant place to live, work and play.

Mt. Boucherie Community Centre will be returned back to the community after the purpose-built City Hall/Library building is operational.

We’ll be consulting on that soon but please tell us if you’d like us to connect with you, and add any early ideas you have before we begin our community outreach!
