The Environment

Reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Kelowna has initiated an achievable plan to reduce green house gas emissions by 27% below 2007 emmission levels by 2023. As Kelowna is growing this is calculated on a per capita basis. Once that goal is achieved then more assertive targets have been established. There is a lot more work to do, but we do have a plan and we are working to make improvements. 

Reduce noise pollution on City streets and on Okanagan Lake. I supported a "Good Neighbor" bylaw to restrict unwanted excessive noise from boats and vehicles. 

City of Kelowna, through the Regional District of the central Okangan works with the Okanagan Basin Water Authority to protect Kelowna's water resources. This is a valley wide initiative.
