I don’t think this plan should proceed until there is much more extensive public involvement and feedback, which might include whether the plan should proceed, and if so, what form should it take.

This are several million dollars of public money at stake, and council and city administration should have formalized a process in which the public should have been invited to offer alternative plans and proposals.  The question is, are the citizens and taxpayers of Penticton getting their money’s worth from this deal?

I haven’t seen a cost benefit analysis yet, my suspicions is one has not been done, and that should be in the hands of the public before any decision is made, or any plan initiated.
