We work with various departments in the City of Kelowna, including Parks, Urban Planning, Long Range Planning, Real Estate, and Property Management.
FOSS communicates community concerns, and brings attention to opportunities for acquisitions/access through residential developments/private properties bordering the South Slopes (ie. off June Springs and McCulloch Roads) to add to ‘park’ land.
FOSS financially contributes/assists with various projects (ie. Priest Creek Linear Park bridge building/removal), and is currently contributing information for the Kelowna Parks Master Plan (ie. identifying current and potential access routes to the South Slopes trail network).
In pursuit of our goal of achieving ultimate connectivity on the South Slopes, FOSS has always worked closely with the different levels of government and other strategic agencies and stakeholders.
Working with these various decision-making agencies, FOSS serves as an umbrella organization, fully representing, supporting, and collaborating with other stakeholders – the many recreational user groups and engaged private businesses – with whom we share the South Slopes.
