The current and estimated population growth of Kelowna has paved the way for increased densification across the city. The City of Kelowna has focused on increasing density within areas with existing infrastructure. This has proven to be a more economically and environmentally sound approach to growth. In 2016, a new zoning bylaw was adopted in select parts of Kelowna’s Urban Core Area. The RU7 zone allows greater flexibility for infill housing, while remaining sensitive to surrounding homes and neighbourhoods. Depending on lot size, the RU7 zone in Kelowna will allow a range from two to four units per lot with lane access. Kelowna has encouraged a high quality of design in the RU7 zone and this has resulted in many innovative and unique forms of housing.
