Electoral Area G includes properties around Hedley, Olalla and the rural area around Keremeos.

The regional district is looking for a broad range of residents to represent the diverse interests and geographic areas within the area.

An official community plan describes the long-term vision for the community and includes policies on housing, commercial, industrial and institutional use, agriculture, recreation, transportation, infrastructure, and environmental protection.

It becomes a legal document containing objectives and policies that guide local government decisions to achieve the long-term vision.

For those interested in serving on the committee, application forms are available on the regional district website and at the office at 101 Martin St., Penticton.
