PENTICTON - The committee looking  at alternative options for governance of Area "D" has selected a consultant for the study.

Leftside Partners Inc. has been selected as the consulting firm to lead the governance study committee in engaging citizens to accurately assess governance and service issues in the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameeen’s rural Electoral  Area “D.”

The governance study hopes to review and consider other methods of local governance for the whole of  Electoral Area “D,” a widely diverse rural area that has the highest population in the district.

Incorporation of Okanagan Falls is not under consideration for this study and any recommendations stemming from it will not displace or compromise any existing initiatives within regional district Area “D.”

The committee and Leftside Partners Inc. will meet in September to finalize their public engagement consultation plan as well as to implement timelines for the study.

Future meetings will be open to the public with a schedule posted for each meeting.
