A Public Hearing was held on September 18, 2017 for Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 1230.20, 2017, and Foreshore and Lake Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1294.02, 2017. Bylaw No. 1230.20, 2017 proposes to add a new Foreshore and Lake Development Permit Area (FLDPA) into the OCP to promote environmentally-sensitive design of private moorage facilities, and to complement the Town’s Foreshore and Lake Zoning Bylaw and Riparian Development Permit Area (RDPA). Bylaw No. 1294.02, 2017 proposes various housekeeping improvements that would bring the Foreshore and Lake Zoning Bylaw more into conformity with Provincial regulations, round out regulatory requirements, and add clarity to some text.
Copies of reports are available within the Council Agenda packages located on the Town’s website www.osoyoos.ca.
The public is encouraged to attend the Committee of the Whole meetings which take place in Council Chambers at 9:00AM on the morning of the Regular Open Council meetings at 2:00 PM to learn additional in-depth information regarding upcoming business.
