Every business downtown would be sunk.

One of the brainwaves that were so qualified to steer the future of our city ran for council on that platform.

I'll open a series of park and boats along the edge of the waterways.

If not for downtown .. well heck
When you're alone, and life is making you lonely
You can always go
Downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
Don't think yourself as an ugly person... Think of yourself as a beautiful monkey

There is another downtown, it's called Mission/South Pandosy. :biggrin:

Stick it wherever you would like, but not in Glenmore thanks! We are becoming High Density Living Central and we really don't have any more side streets to park on for visitor parking etc.

But thanks for thinking of us!

I would agree with a Hospital on West kelowna. They still have land mass and could build it so they have a actual parking lot, and heli-pad.

You are correct but it was later. It was a specialty Hospital Private for their people. It must not have been well planned. They actually traveled all over the world trying to get specialist to invest and to commit to being there.

Brief look at the article, something criminal...go figure.

West Bank First Nations Hospital google it, a number of articles. the link won't show proper.

I feel like we've had the second hospital discussion here before. Or it could be that I imagined it...oh middle age, how I love thee. Anyhoo, I think if there ever is a second hospital built it will probably be at the University.

That is another good location and the University could then have their Medical Education ran out of it there.

You're not allowed to post other local media articles which is why it won't show.
There is some information available here:

I would be surprised at another hospital but near the University would serve multiple purposes.
Fancy this, Fancy that and by the way, T*t for Tat
