Let's Talk: Tournament Capital Ranch Phase II Results

Kamloops, B.C. –  In August of this year, the City conducted various events to invite the public to participate and provide their feedback on the future use of the Tournament Capital Ranch lands, as Phase II of the project commences. The City’s Agriculture Area Plan identifies using a portion of the Tournament Capital Ranch lands to create an “Agricultural Centre of Excellence” to support sustainable farming. Council wanted to ensure any community member who was interested had an opportunity to be informed and to provide input on what was being proposed and to offer additional ideas for future land uses.

The results of the feedback and survey responses are available at: www.kamloops.ca/tcr/pdfs/14-09-18-TCRPublicFeedback.pdf

This information will be presented to Council, and the input will help inform Council’s decision and the City’s application to the Agricultural Land Commission to approve the proposed land uses.
