Redevelopment of Daily News Property Request for Information

Release date: 
March 4, 2016

Kamloops, B.C. -The City of Kamloops has released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking parties interested in partnering with the City or presenting other options on the development of the former Daily News property.

The RFI will be posted on BCBid (, and will be circulated within the real estate industry and major media markets in BC and Alberta. Further information is available here. The closing date for the RFI is April 15, 2016, after which the responses will be reported back to Council.

In January, City Council unanimously voted to explore an Expression of Interest process for the property after the referendum for the proposed performing arts centre was defeated. Due to the broad nature of the request, it was determined that a Request for Information was more appropriate than an Expression of Interest.
