Regionally Significant Program Funding

The Regional Board has received a letter from the Union of BC Municipalities that Gas Tax Funding has been approved for a Regional District proposal submitted under the Regionally Significant Project Fund.  The Regional District will receive just over $4.4-million as the local government share toward the purchase of new or replacement transit buses or debt servicing on buses within the Kelowna Regional Transit system fleet.
Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw Amendment

The Regional Board has adopted an amendment to the Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw changing the land use designation on a property adjacent to Huckleberry Road.  The designation from Rural Acreage to Small Holdings 2 would allow the property owner to proceed with an application to subdivide the 4.46-hectare property into two lots, each exceeding two hectares.  The change in land use designation for this property will bring it in line with similar designations provided for 11 other properties with two pre-existing dwellings during the 2006 review of the Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw.
April Building Statistics Report

During April, the Regional District approved ten building permits for construction projects valued at $571,680 in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas.  That compares with nine permits issued during April 2012 for projects worth a total of $901,500.
