LET’S LOOK at the big picture, Kamloops.

You may have missed a news story this week on an issue called “Kamplan.”

It’s not controversial like the Ajax mine or flashy like a proposed performing arts centre, but it may be more important than either of those issues.

Kamplan is the big picture vision articulated by city council, and carried out by the city’s planning staff.

It’s like the combination of a crystal ball and a set of rose-coloured glasses, combining the most realistic vision of what will happen with the best case scenario that the city can direct with its bylaws.
