KELOWNA - If you live within the Regional District of Central Okanagan Electoral Areas and are interested in your community, the Regional District would like to hear from you.
Communications Officer Bruce Smith says “We’re currently looking for volunteer members to serve on the Environmental Advisory Commission and the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Advisory Planning Commissions.”
He adds, “These groups work with our Planning staff to advise the Regional Board by reviewing development applications for the potential environmental impacts, land use and planning issues within the Electoral Areas. They also provide input into the preparation of Official Community Plans and proposed bylaws or permits.”
Members of each Advisory Commission will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated interest and participation in community matters, academic and/or technical qualifications, availability, work experience, knowledge, professional expertise, and land use planning.
Information about each of these Advisory Commissions is available online by visiting regionaldistrict.com/advisorycommissions or by contacting the Regional District Community Services Planning Section by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 250-469-6227.
There’s a convenient link to an online form that can be completed and submitted on the Regional District website. Forms may also be downloaded, completed and dropped off in person or by mail.
