Council has a vision to “Foster a Healthy Community”.   Part of attaining this vision is to create a vibrant and attractive Town Centre.   Council values our small town character and wishes to celebrate our rich history, as stated in the Official Community Plan, (OCP).

Highlighted in the Town’s (OCP) is a vision statement for Veterans’ Square; “Enhance the Town/Veterans Square to provide a meaningful space for reflection and celebration at the heart of the Town Centre”.

Staff is proposing a development of 103 Vermilion that will compliment the area, be attractive and welcoming, and is supportive of Council’s vision and OCP. A focus will be placed on honoring the Princeton Veterans and to incorporate nature into the space.

As per Council’s directives, staff has engaged the services of Meiklejohn Architectural Design Studio out of Penticton to develop a site plan. The architect was given the following criteria:

  • The new development must respect and enhance Veterans’ Square
  • It must encourage social gather of our citizens’
  • It should incorporate a fire feature to create warmth and atmosphere
  • It should reflect the existing architecture and greenery
  • It should provide for storage of tables and chairs
  • It should have an open area for reflection and celebration
  • It should have a BBQ/outdoor kitchen area to support community events

The renderings and site plan are now complete and posted on the Town’s web site. Citizens are encouraged to view the proposed plan and provide comments or feedback.
