PenTALKton Event – November 22nd – Official Community Plan (OCP) Engagement

November 22, 2017 from 6 pm to 10 pm in the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre, with the presentations starting at 7 pm. The event is free. A cash bar and snacks will be available.

As part of the Official Community Plan process, The CIty of Penticton has organized a community event focusing around key themes coming out of the OCP process so far.  The event is a Pecha Kucha style evening with 10 short presentations on 10 different topics such as health, arts and culture, affordable housing, natural environment, history and heritage, downtown, transportation, sustainable architecture and of course, the role of an Official Community Plan.

The topics to be covered include health, natural environment, heritage and culture. Parks are vehicles for delivering service in all of these areas. Furthermore, to be coherent, planning and policy for our parks need to be consistent with the OCP.  As a result, the two processes need to be integrated at some point. Whatever the Parks and Recreation Master Plan recommends for park classification and zoning will have to be accepted and embedded in the OCP. We need to be sure that the role of parks in delivering on the OCP is clear and is respected.  Our member should take a keen interest in the OCP from this perspective right from its early stages and on to completion.

The speakers for the evening will be:

  • Ben Johnson, City of Penticton
  • Katie Brennan, Artist
  • Kristi Tatebe & Kristi Estergaard, Kwantlen Polytechnic University/Interior Health
  • Alison Peatt, South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program
  • Anthony Haddad, City of Penticton
  • Gordon Lovegrove, UBC Okanagan
  • Chris Allen, Landform Architecture Design Build
  • Randy Manuel, Historian
  • Linda Sanky, South Okanagan Similkameen Brain Injury Society (SOBIS)
  •  Anita Ely, Interior Health
