Re: ‘If you were king or queen of Kamloops, what would you do?’

Bike lanes everywhere.

Walk friendly communities everywhere(at the very frickin least-sidewalks).

Light rail system.

Riverside boardwalk & entertainment district in both downtown and overlander beach.

More bridges-way more.

Gondola from N. Shore to TRU to Kenna Cartwright.

Free parking everywhere downtown including RIH.

Ebike shares everywhere.

Expand airport and build hotel/commercial area around it.

Improve access and commercial/beach community area at Kamloops Lake.

Roundabouts at all major intersections.

Stop building up mountains and infill instead.

All new infrastructure must meet LEED standards.
