Traffic on Westsyde Road is going down to two lanes while they repave.

Work is beginning on the Westsyde Road resurfacing project. The milling of the old starts Aug 18th and will be done in quarter sections, with the first 25% piece starting at Franklin Road to around Oak Hills as they work their way to 8th Street at Batchelor Heights.

This will be a three to four week journey, for all of us, so drive slower and leave earlier.



While we are polling.
The City would like to, what's your opinion on paving the dike?

WCDS Authorize Phase I Spray Park Construction

By Robert Kelly

The Board of Directors at their regular meeting of January 9th reviewed plans of the washrooms and change rooms building which makes up Phase I of the Spray Park Project.  The WCDS will be partnering up with a local construction firm, and the City of Kamloops, to start the project this spring in Centennial Park.  The project will include both men’s and women’s washrooms with a change room area, all of which will be heated for use during the winter months so that users of the Ralph Clearwaters Sports Complex Ice Rink can use these facilities.  President Diane Kuchma speaking on behalf of the Director’s said, “she was overjoyed that this project will finally be initiated and looked forward to the completion of the Spray Park with Phase II in 2015/16.”
