CENTRAL OKANAGAN - If you live within the Regional District of Central Okanagan Electoral Areas and are interested in future development 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 Agricultural Advisory Commission and Environmental Advisory Commission.”
He adds, “Each group works with our Planning staff to advise the Regional Board by reviewing appropriate development applications within the Electoral Areas for potential impacts on agriculture and environmental sustainability."
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.
