As Kelowna's current council gets ready to leave office, it will get a chance to see how much of a dent was made in its three year priority list.

Of those nine priorities, three are complete while significant progress has been made on three others.

- Waterfront development - Significant
- Increased focus on economic development activities - Significant
- Rutland Town Centre revitalization (Our Rutland) - Significant

Several priorities set out for 2014 have also been complete, including:

Much of the effort in this term focused on building on momentum created through previous Councils, completing progressive and well-considered plans for the future and beginning the process of establishing
the foundation for major projects to be completed in future years.
