During its July 20 meeting, Penticton City Council took steps to proactively invest in the City’s natural and built assets by adopting a new Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan (IIMP).
The new plan aligns the existing water, storm, sanitary and transportation master plans with the City’s Official community Plan (OCP), identifies the projects needed to achieve the goals and policies in the OCP and provides a prioritized action plan for the next 5, 10, 20 and 25 years. The IIMP also identifies where projects are needed to address existing deficiencies or anticipated growth.
As a supporting next step, the City will develop a capital funding strategy to determine which projects should be included in each annual budget process, complete with appropriate funding solutions.
“With the adoption of this integrated plan, the City can now cast its sights nearly 25 years ahead,” said Penticton Mayor, John Vassilaki. “With that range of time available, current and future decision makers can make better and more informed choices.”
