Building a Better Future: Nancy Bepple for Kamloops City Council 2022

April 19, 2022 at 12:12 am  Municipal, Politics

Fresh Ideas for Kamloops

  • Housing – Smaller lots, infills, lower parking requirements all help to keep housing affordable.
  • Investing in Livability – Places to recreate, preservation of the wild spaces, and why a performing arts centre would be a legacy for us all.
  • Strengthening Community – Housing helps many problems, healthcare is one piece of the puzzle, and we need more than police.
  • Climate resilience – Climate change is upon us. Implementing the City’s Climate Action Plan, such as better biking and pedestrian infrastructure, needs to be a priority of the next council.
