Kelowna in tough as it tries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, November 30
Author: Adrian Nieoczym

[C]hanges [to Kelowna's Official Community Plans] would commit the City of Kelowna, in partnership with senior levels of government, local residents and businesses, external agencies, non-governmental organizations and utility providers, to to work towards cutting the community’s GHG emissions by 33 per cent by 2020.

Under the OCP amendment, Kelowna would try to achieve this target by creating more mixed-use neighbourhoods where residents can “conveniently and safely travel by bus or by foot, bicycle and other forms of active transportation to get to major community destinations while ensuring the efficient movement of goods and services.”
