Capital Works Projects

Building a Better Vernon, Together!

 

Council Continues To Invest In Vernon’s Infrastructure

Showing Council’s commitment to renewing the roads, pipes and all City owned infrastructure. The impacts of the 1.9% cumulative infrastructure levy, directed entirely and immediately to infrastructure, are now becoming visible throughout the City with $21 million being spent on rehabilitation and improvements in 2019. The projects contained in the 2019 Capital Project list continue to strategically replace City of Vernon assets as guided by the City’s asset management plans and planned improvements to support continued growth of the community.

Highlights of the 2019 Capital Projects include:

  • the 30th Street, 29th Street and 39th Avenue Improvement and Utility Rehabilitation project that will complete over a decade of work to create the North / South transportation connection of 30th Street and 29th Street for pedestrians, cyclist, transit and vehicles;

  • advancement of Sewer Extension to the Okanagan Landing through the Cameo and Aquarius neighbourhoods should the petitioning process favor sewer extension;

  • the 48th Avenue Road Improvement and Utility Reconstruction (29th to Highway 97) that will rehabilitate the drainage infrastructure in 48th Avenue and add a multi-use path on 48th Avenue from 29th Street to Highway 97 and commercial and hotels in the Anderson way subdivision; and

  • the Upper BX Creek Sedimentation Basin will provide resiliency to seasonal sediment transport and flooding in the Upper BX Creek.

Thirty Two smaller but equally important renewal and reconstruction projects round out the 2019  $21 million Capital Project list.
