On Saturday, October 15, eligible voters in Vernon will go to the polls for the Active Living Centre Referendum in conjunction with the 2022 General Local Election.

To help voters make a well-informed decision for the referendum question, information booths will be set up throughout the community over the next several weeks to give members of the public an opportunity to talk directly with Greater Vernon Recreation Services staff, learn about the project, and review material together.

“We want to provide as many ways as possible for people to get information about the project, why the facility is being proposed for the community, and what would be included,” said Doug Ross, director of Recreation Services. “Information booths are being set up so residents can see the conceptual drawings, learn about the funding strategy and impact for taxpayers, ask questions, and get answers in real time.”

“The Active Living Centre referendum is a community-based decision and every voice matters,” said Ross. “Your vote is your voice. Therefore, we encourage all Vernon residents to learn about the project, consider your options, and participate in the referendum on October 15.”
