Just want to quickly mention some important local events and happenings that all warrant separate entries here. In the interests of time, here they are all bundled together. I would highly recommend checking out:
- The Save Public Waterfront web site: This grassroots citizen group is lobbying Council to not allow any hotel development in between Interior Savings Centre and the river's edge. As of this moment, they have 543 signatures on their petition.
- Social Planning Consultations: As part of the development of a new social plan for the community, the City, along with the social plan consultants, are hosting a series of public consulations on different social issues in the community. The city press release is pretty hard to get to, so instead I have linked to Sound Kamloops excellent page.
- Kamloops Sustainable Energy Fair: Matt Greenwood emailed me and reminded me that this innovative, first of its kind event will be held this upcoming Sunday, May 27th at the Mac Island Sports Centre. There is a great page here with more information.
