Share Your Ideas for the Future of our City!

Kamloops, B.C. – The City of Kamloops is reviewing and updating KAMPLAN and needs your help! KAMPLAN is the Official Community Plan, setting out a long-term vision for the future of our community and guiding decisions around growth and land use.

The City wants to know: “How can we make Kamloops an even better place?”

Throughout the month of October, there will be a number of public input opportunities you can participate in:

  1. Come to the Kick-Off Launch Event for the KAMPLAN review and update. There are two locations to choose from:

  • South Shore: October 1st at Aberdeen Mall in the old East Side Mario’s location,  from 12:00 to 4:00 pm; or

  • North Shore: October 2nd at North Hills Mall at the Extra Foods entrance, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm.

  • Both events will feature live music, food, and interactive games and activities.

  1. Fill out the online community survey: www.kamloops.ca/letstalk

  1. The City will be holding community meetings with interested organizations and members of the public to have deeper discussions on five topics. To arrange a community meeting at your location, please contact us at: kamplan@kamloops.ca or 250-828-3568.

Anytime you participate in an engagement opportunity, you can be entered into a draw for fabulous prizes, including a two night Ski & Stay at Sun Peaks Resort, a $200 gift certificate to Save On Foods and $100 in gift certificates to various restaurants.
