Enter looked for future use of Kelowna heritage home

Residents are invited to provide ideas and possible uses of the Cameron House heritage building at an upcoming open house.

On Thurs., May 12 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. residents are invited to Cameron Park located at 2345 Richter Street. Cameron House was built in 1928 and is a 1.5 storey long home located on the Guisachan property in Kelowna’s South Pandosy neighbourhood.

“We are looking to residents to come up with creative ideas on how we can best make use of this piece of Kelowna history,” said Pat McCormick, Planner Specialist. “This valuable heritage asset has the opportunity to provide a service to the neighbourhood and contribute to the creation of a community hub.”

<p>Once the home of a prominent local family, Cameron House holds special significance to the community. Valued for its unusual architectural style, landscaped park setting and role in community life now and throughout its history, the revitalization of this heritage building has the potential to contribute to the vibrancy of the neighbourhood.</p>
<p>The fair will help identify activities and uses that are compatible with the heritage building, park and surrounding neighbourhood. Once information has been gathered, the city will see a private or not-for-profit partner to assist the city in financing capital improvements for the building and adjoining site.</p>
<p>Cameron House is a Kelowna heritage asset listed on the City’s Heritage Register. Over the years the building has housed several tenants, including most recently a children’s daycare. The building is currently unoccupied and in need of extensive upgrades before being suitable for occupancy.</p>
<p>Residents are also encouraged to share their input and join the discussions online from May 9 until 21 at getinvolved.kelowna.ca.</p>
