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 $16 million being spent on rehabilitation and improvements in 2020. The projects contained in the 2020 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 2020 Capital Projects include:

  • the 32nd AVENUE RECONSTRUCTION – 33rd STREET TO 35th STREET includes the rehabilitation of approximately 285 metres of road, and water main, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer replacement along 32nd Avenue from 33rd Street to 35th Street. The project also includes some sidewalk replacement and upgrades;
  • a new CIVIC PARK on 37th AVENUE at the former Civic Arena site;
  • advancement of Sewer Extension to the Okanagan Landing through the Longacre neighbourhood should the petitioning process favor sewer extension;
  • the PLEASANT VALLEY ROAD - BX CREEK TO 48th AVENUE project that will finalize the upgrade of Pleasant Valley Road and includes road reconstruction, new curbs and gutters, sidewalks, a new storm main and outfall into BX Creek, a new storm treatment device to remove sediment, and safety improvement modifications to the 48th Avenue intersection; and,
  • the OKANAGAN LANDING ROAD SEWER FORCE MAIN TRONSON ROAD TO VWRC  that will include replacement of the existing Okanagan Landing Road sewer force main from Tronson Road to the Vernon Water Reclamation Center (VWRC) to accommodate increased flow due to development.

Twenty five (25) smaller but equally important capital projects round out the 2020  $17 million Capital Project list.
