In order to make Penticton more attractive to younger families, we need first to clean up the drug issue.

This involves reviewing our community policing or lack of. We need to review the amount of officers in Penticton and if the numbers are not adequate we will need to hire more.

The next step is more affordable housing such as carriage houses or possibly lane way housing. And, last but not least, we need to create more employment situations.
