Community feedback sought on potential boundaries for Okanagan Falls municipality

A community survey about the future of the area is available until June 10

The potential boundaries of an incorporated Okanagan Falls will soon be reviewed by the regional district through community feedback.

The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) has launched a survey to determine the public’s preferred town boundaries for the municipality’s potential incorporation.

Residents in Okanagan Falls and its surrounding areas — known as “Electoral D” — are asked to complete the survey online or by using the region’s provided paper copies.

“Now is the time for the residents and property owners in Electoral Area D to have their say about potential boundary options,” said Mark Pendergraft, RDOS chair. “The results of this survey will help the Committee make a recommendation to the RDOS Board as a potential boundary for consideration as part of the next potential phase in the incorporation study process.”

Previous studies have been launched over the years regarding the potential formation of an incorporated Okanagan Falls.

Residents in the area will be receiving paper packages, which will include five boundary options.

Those who won’t be completing the survey online can return their paper copies to the RDOS’ Penticton office on 101 Martin Street or at the Economic Development Office in Okanagan Falls.

Community feedback will be used if the province indicates future incorporation of the area.

The survey will be available for completion until June 10.
