Responsible Dog Ownership Bylaw
The Regional Board has given first and second reading to the proposed new Responsible Dog Ownership Bylaw No. 1343. The bylaw encourages and supports dog owners that exhibit responsible behaviour in licensing, caring and controlling their dog. The bylaw proposes a number of changes including allowing up to three licensed dogs per house, tethering a dog for no more than four hours a day and increased fines for dogs at large and off leash. An Information Open House will be held on Wednesday, January 29th at the RDCO office, 1450 KLO Road in Kelowna from 4:00 – 8:00 pm and an online survey is available for public comment on the proposed bylaw at regionaldistrict.com/dogs. It’s anticipated that the Regional Board will consider adopting the bylaw in February.
Regional Growth Strategy
The Regional Board has rescinded second reading of the Regional Growth Strategy Bylaw No. 1336. This will allow staff to continue discussions with affected local governments in the Central Okanagan to resolve areas of concern that they have identified with the proposed update to the Regional Growth Strategy bylaw. Following these discussions, it is anticipated amendments will be presented to the Board for further consideration of the bylaw.
