Demolition Begins at Track

Kin fire

Demolition is underway at Kin Race Track in Vernon.

The Okanagan Equestrian Society formally abandoned its appeal earlier this year regarding the ownership of the track, which is the oldest in BC.

At the time Mayor Victor Cumming said,  “We are very pleased to hear the official outcome of this lengthy court case.  We can now begin the process of engaging the public for ideas on the future use of this land, which is zoned for recreational uses. Our goal will be to determine a use for the land that provides benefit to a wide range of citizens.”

Councillor, Scott Anderson posted his comments on line, saying now we can move forward with this valuable location, hopefully with a new swimming pool/athletic centre.

The future of the area is planned for recreation, but there are no plans yet.
