Rees puts OK Centre first

Okanagan Centre residents were asked by Council to find out what they wanted for the future of the area.

A little over 4 years ago a group of Okanagan Centre residents was asked by Council to find out what all residents of the Ward wanted for the future of the area.  You may remember that a survey was circulated to residents asking for their opinion about a number of subjects.

Of the over 400 residents that completed this survey, the overwhelming majority wanted to keep the existing rural/agricultural character of the Ward and of the village of Okanagan Centre.  A majority of respondents also wanted the foreshore along the village to be kept natural, undeveloped and for public use, and that development within the village should be restricted to single family homes.  Further, any development within the Ward should preserve the scenic quality and character of Okanagan Centre, be as unobtrusive as possible and should not encroach on agricultural land.

Alice Rees was instrumental in starting this initiative to determine the resident’s ideas for the future of the Ward, and worked closely with the resident’s group throughout the project

If you agree with the opinions expressed in the survey, I ask you to vote for Alice Rees in the upcoming election of Councillors, so that she can continue to work to implement our vision for the future of Okanagan Centre as expressed in the survey.
