Downtown makeover key presentation
at morning Council meeting

Osoyoos Council this morning will get a first public look at a proposed makeover for the community’s downtown.

A presentation is scheduled to bring Council up-to-date on the Osoyoos Town Centre Renewal plan (TCRP) and will detail the process undertaken over the spring and summer of this year.

But the big treat will be the graphic delivery of some “emerging opportunities.”

Those include a street plaza, a new community landmark, a parklette patio and conversation corners.

This afternoon, council is expected to be asked to commit to the plan.

“The projects outlined in the TCRP can be implemented at the discretion of Council as resources become available,” explains Gina McKay, the Town’s Director of Planning and Development Services, in a report to Council.

The process, led by Michael von Hausen, President of MVH Urban Planning & Design Inc., has included an open house in June and a September workshop that involved more than 70 Osoyoos residents.

As a thank you, the Town invited participants to a presentation preview November 8 and a first look at the Town Centre concept plans.

Council’s Committee of the Whole meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. in Council Chambers. The meetings is also available for viewing online at

Also on the agenda for this afternoon’s regular Council meeting — scheduled for 2 p.m. — are first looks at a proposed 47-unit townhome development and a retail cannabis store.
