An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
AFTER SEVERAL YEARS of standing still, Kamloops is suddenly poised on the edge of some visionary development.
Concept plans were unveiled Tuesday for the airport lands that include options like a dock-and-restaurant, hotel, business park, solar farm and possibly even a cannabis operation on some of the agricultural acreage.
Not all of the ideas will take hold, but there’s plenty of original thinking in what has been laid out by Vantage Airport Group. It isn’t just pie in the sky, either — Vantage is enthusiastic about moving forward.
And there was the announcement Monday by the Kelson Group for a major residential and commercial development that could renew the downtown core.
