The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen is inviting residents of Electoral Area G to serve on an Official Community Plan citizens’ committee.
Electoral Area G does not have an official community plan at present. The committee will participate in creating a plan for the committee and will provide feedback throughout the process.
Electoral Area G includes properties around Hedley, Olalla and the rural area around Keremeos.
The regional district is looking for a broad range of residents to represent the diverse interests and geographic areas within the area.
An official community plan describes the long-term vision for the community and includes policies on housing, commercial, industrial and institutional use, agriculture, recreation, transportation, infrastructure, and environmental protection.
It becomes a legal document containing objectives and policies that guide local government decisions to achieve the long-term vision.
For those interested in serving on the committee, application forms are available on the regional district website and at the office at 101 Martin St., Penticton.
