Open House - Richmond Avenue Reconstruction Project

Kamloops, B.C. - In November 2014, the City invited Richmond Avenue residents, business owners and other stakeholders to provide their input on potential infrastructure improvements for Richmond Avenue. The input received was considered, together with technical and budget considerations, during the development of the final reconstruction plan. Richmond Avenue reconstruction (between 7th Street and Schubert Drive) is scheduled to take place in 2016.

On Wednesday, January 13th, the City will be hosting a public open house at Arthur Hatton Elementary School (315 Chestnut Avenue) to present the reconstruction plan. Richmond Avenue residents and business owners are encouraged to drop by any time between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm to view the plan. City staff will be available to answer any questions.

The Richmond Avenue reconstruction plan will also be available to view online starting January 12th at www.kamloops.ca/openhouse.
