Breweries for it, but IHA against booze on beach project in Penticton

A pilot project in Penticton, B.C., that allows alcohol consumption at some public beaches and parks has supporters and detractors.

The project, which came into effect on Wednesday, June 3, and ended Saturday, July 4, will be back before city council this week.

On Tuesday, the city will review the project, though city staff will recommend that it be allowed to continue until Oct. 15.

“The pilot received enough support from the community to recommend continuing the implementation of this bylaw,” said the city’s director of development services, Blake Laven.

“If council agrees with the recommendation, the city will continue to consult with groups who may be affected and look at making any additional adjustments as part of a final review this fall.”
