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 $18 million being spent on rehabilitation and improvements in 2021. The current City projects continue to strategically replace City of Vernon assets as guided by the City’s asset management plans and make planned improvements to support the continued growth of the community.

Capital Project Highlights include:
32nd Avenue Reconstruction – 33rd Street to 35th Street

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;

Civic Park

a new CIVIC PARK on 37th AVENUE at the former Civic Arena site;

Sewer Extension to the Okanagan

The City of Vernon is working to make sewer service available to properties in the Okanagan Landing. The initial phase of the servicing project started in 2021 and includes installation of collector sewer pipe in areas where horizontal directional drilling (HDD) can be used. HDD is a method of construction that allows a pipe to be installed quickly, with very little excavation work. Traditional open cut construction would be used to install individual services from the collector sewer to adjacent properties when owners request to connect to City sewer service. The use of HDD to install the collector sewer pipe and phased construction approach allows the City to make sewer service available to as many properties as possible, at the lowest possible cost.
