Pandosy Lakeshore is

             

      LIVABLE, INCLUSIVE, CONNECTED, ECLECTIC, CONVENIENT, ACTIVE

Pandosy Lakeshore is about to change

  •        MORE THAN 4,000 UNITS ON THE DRAWING BOARD WITHOUT A PLAN

  •        AFFORDABILITY IS BEING ERODED

  •        MASSIVE INCREASES IN TRAFFIC WILL AFFECT ALL SOUTH KELOWNA RESIDENTS

  •         DEVELOPERS ARE NOT PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE RAISING EVERYONE IN KELOWNA'S TAXES

  •         PARKING ISSUES ARE GETTING WORSE

  •          THIS IS BEING DECIDED WITHOUT YOUR VOICE!

Pandosy Lakeshore needs a plan!

Take the survey

Over Development in South Pandosy

  • The Current OCP Envisioned 1,600 Units - the real number is 3 1/2 times that amount, with 6,000 units!

Development is Not Paying Its Fair Share

  • The current City of Kelowna Capital Plan has a deficit of over $400 Million dollars for New Growth Development (Cost of Growth minus DCC's not including airport).

  • The deficit has to be made up from Reserves, Increased Borrowing and Increased Taxes by Every  Taxpayer.

  • Despite this shortfall, Kelowna continues to give developers among the highest amount of handouts compared to other communities in Canada. These handouts come at the expense of services you rely on.

Affordability and Livability are being Eroded

  • Almost every major project is seeking height variances, creating an expectation that inflates land prices. This perpetuates the developer narrative that more height and tax breaks are needed to make projects viable!

  • Affordable units are being eliminated while opportunities to create more affordable units (such as acquiring Central Mobile Home Park) are being sold to high-end developers.

  • Who are we building for? We are losing housing for families and replacing them with high-end condo units for a narrow segment. A complete community needs different housing types for different households.

Developers are Pushing Many Times Beyond the Current By-Laws

  • Planned developments are pushing several times the height and density allowed in the By-Laws.

Pandosy Needs a Plan

Pandosy has no plan. The current OCP is not being followed while the next one has yet to be presented to the community. 

Best Practice Planning is demonstrating that this type of planning is not the best way to

increase overall community density or community well-being.

 

The direction happening is two extremes: Sprawl and Tall. 

An alternative exists which demonstrates more advantages in affordability, infrastructure cost, environmental sustainability, traffic congestion, livability and community wellness.

A report by Ryerson University has concluded that cities will achieve needed densification much better by changing the way they densify.

We are not suggesting that City Planning wants 35 story towers in Pandosy by this diagram, rather that distributing the same density of a tower into a larger area makes it a preferred liveable area. 

Since the OCP not being followed and a new one in the works, the KLO Neighborhood Association firmly believes that a sector plan for Pandosy Lakeshore is desperately needed and that any development beyond the current By-Laws and OCP should not be approved until a sector plan is completed.
