Highlights of the regular Regional Board Meeting: March 24, 2014

March 25, 2014 - 12:24 PM

Sustainable Transportation Partnership

The Regional Board has approved the Sustainable Transportation Partnership Inter-municipal Service Agreement.  The formal agreement will see each of the local and regional governments in the Central Okanagan working together on transportation initiatives and projects that support common regional policy, plans and interests.  The inter-governmental partnership will result in coordinated efforts to achieve a more sustainable system for all modes of transportation in order to support the region’s economy, social network and environment.  The partnership will also help improve responsiveness and accountability on transportation matters while ensuring a more cost-effective use, operation and expansion of the region-wide transportation system.  Each municipality will also be asked to approve the agreement.

Zoning Bylaw Amendments

The Regional Board has given second and third readings to proposed amendments to the Zoning Bylaw No. 871.  One of the suggested amendments deals with housing for Temporary Migrant Farm Workers and provides more flexible options that are consistent with the Agricultural Land Commission legislation and the Province’s template for migrant farm worker housing.  The key changes include:  setback provisions, maximum allowable floor area and confirmation from farm operators that buildings are for seasonal farm worker housing.  Final consideration will be given by the Board once approval has been received from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
