is gained from a driveway connecting to Mabel Lake Road. The dwelling is serviced with an onsite septic system and a water licence from Almondbury Creek. Almondbury Creek is located
on the neighbouring parcel to the east and Ashton Creek is located on properties to the south.
The property is outside of the Shuswap River Fire Protection area.
The subject property is zoned Non-Urban (N.U) and designated in the Official Community Plan
as Future Country Residential. The same zoning and designation applies to the acreages lying
to the north and east of the subject parcel. To the northwest of the property is a 1 ha property
that is zoned Country Residential (C.R) and designated Future Small Holdings. To the
southwest is a 2.6 ha property that is zoned Country Residential, is designated Agricultural and
is within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). To the south is acreage that is zoned Large
Holding, designated Agricultural and is within the ALR.
The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2007.

The Proposal
Approval of the rezoning application would facilitate a proposed subdivision to create 3 lots as
shown on the attached plans to this report. Lot 1 would be a 2.72 ha vacant lot. Access to Lot
1 would be gained by a proposed driveway which would have a maximum grade of ± 13%. Lot
2 is proposed as a 2.71 ha lot that would contain an existing shed near the center of the lot.
Access to Lot 2 would be gained by constructing a driveway with a maximum grade of ± 12%.
Proposed Lot 3 would be 2.01 ha in size and contain the existing single family dwelling and a
garage. Access to Lot 3 would also be gained from a proposed driveway that would be
constructed with a maximum grade of ± 9%.
The minimum lot frontage requirements for the zone have been met by proposing frontages of
89.6 m for Lot 1, 80.0 m for Lot 2 and 144.7 m for Lot 3. Building sites identified on the lots
have a grade of 20-22%.
The lots are proposed to be serviced with on-site septic fields and well or surface water sources.
The applicant submitted a copy of a water licence for Almondbury Creek that was issued in
1979 and a hydrogeological assessment of the subject and adjacent property to the east. The
report was prepared in 1995 for a previous subdivision application.
ZONING BYLAW:
The subject property is currently zoned Non-Urban (N.U). The uses permitted in the N.U zone
include accessory buildings and structures, ancillary single family dwellings, bed and breakfast
use, boarding house, community care facilities, home occupations, intensive agricultural use,
manufactured homes, public parks and playgrounds, resource use, single family dwellings, and
two family dwellings. The number of dwellings allowed per lot in the N.U. zone may not exceed:
1. one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home; and
2. one additional single family dwelling on lots 14.4 ha or larger in size for lands located
outside the ALR;
3. one ancillary single family dwelling on lands in and out of the ALR.
The proposal is to rezone the subject property to the Country Residential (C.R) zone. Uses
permitted in the C.R zone include ancillary single family dwellings, bed and breakfast use, boarding
house use, community care facilities, home occupations use, intensive agricultural use, limited
resource use, manufactured homes, public parks and playgrounds, single and two family dwellings,
and accessory buildings and structures. The number of dwellings allowed per lot in the C.R zone
(relevant to this application) may not exceed:
1. one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home;
2. one additional single family dwelling on lots 4 ha or larger for lands located outside the ALR;
3. one ancillary single family dwelling on lands in and out of the ALR on lots 2 ha or larger.
The minimum parcel size in the N.U and C.R zones is 7.2 ha and 2.0 ha respectively. The lot
frontage in each zone must not be less than 10% of the perimeter of each lot. All lots created
within the N.U and C.R zones must contain a contiguous area of land 2,000 m2 or larger in size
to serve as a suitable building site. Building sites must be less than 30% natural slope and must
be accessible from a public highway by a private access driveway which commences at the
edge of the finished road surface as close to right angles with a maximum slope of 2% for a
minimum distance of 10 m and a maximum slope of 15% thereafter.

OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN:
The Official Community Plan designates the land use of the subject property as Future Country
Residential. Enderby Mabel Lake Road is designated in the OCP as a Major Road and is
required to have a minimum width of 25 m. The property is identified as being within a Wildfire
Interface Area which requires that property owners acknowledge such at Building Permit stage.
The following OCP Policies are applicable to the application:
Rural Residential Land Policies
1. Rural Residential lands are intended to provide an alternative to urban living, with lots of 1
hectare or larger and emphasizing an attachment to the land and utilization for rural and
agricultural uses, but with lesser services and greater distances to community facilities and
shopping and are designated as Country Residential and Small Holdings.
2. Rural Residential lands shall conform to the following requirements:
a) outside the ALR and, where the use abuts land in the ALR, be provided with adequate
buffering on the non-agricultural lands;
b) have access to a public road system meeting Ministry of Transportation standards in
which emergency egress must be considered particularly in wildfire interface areas;
c) not in an area that has high capability for other uses such as gravel deposits, mining,
wildlife habitat, rare and endangered wildlife habitat, rare vegetation communities,
springs and domestic water supply (community watersheds) unless the impacts can be
mitigated through clustering or other innovative development techniques;
d) not in an area with slopes greater than thirty percent (30%);
e) not subject to flooding or in an area with a high water table;
f) not subject to excessive expenditures for services such as roads and school bussing;
g) contains a suitable building site;
h) is serviced with a potable water supply in accordance with the Potable Water Supply
Policies of the OCP; and
i) provides for the collection, treatment and disposal of sewage.
3. In accordance with the Fringe Area policies, areas established for future urban expansion
should be maintained with zoning designations of Country Residential (C.R) – (2.0 ha
minimum lot size) or larger Non Urban (N.U) or Large Holdings (L.H).
4. Because of the importance of an adequate water supply in rural residential areas, and the
uncertainty about water supply in some potential areas, assurance about the water supply in
questionable areas shall be provided prior to the designation of land for rural residential use.
Potable Water Supply Policies
1. All new development that provides for the construction of only one single family dwelling per
lot should be serviced with potable water through a water supply system or domestic water
system. A water supply system and domestic water system may use groundwater or surface
water as the source of potable water and shall meet the following requirements:
a) The quality of the water must meet the standards contained in the Drinking Water
Protection Act and the Drinking Water Protection Regulation; and
b) The quantity of water required shall be as specified in the Regional District Subdivision
Servicing Bylaw in force from time to time which will include both domestic and fire flow
standards where required; and

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
April 1, 2015 - Item E.1
Rezoning Application
13-0049-F-RZ (James Ilott c/o J.R. Shortt)
Page 5
c) Subject to the provisions of the Subdivision Servicing bylaw, all groundwater and surface
water supplies should be subject to certification by qualified professionals (Professional
Engineers and Professional Geoscientists with competency in hydrogeology or
geotechnical engineering) or by a qualified well driller and/or well pump installer as
defined in the Provincial Ground Water Protection Regulation (GWPR).
2. Notwithstanding the provision listed above, where a residential or rural zone provides for the
construction of more than one single family dwelling per lot, or provides for the construction
of two family dwellings, then new development may be permitted without the provision of a
water supply system provided that a covenant is registered on the title of the subject
property to:
a) Require that each additional dwelling unit be provided with its own groundwater well
meeting the requirements of the Regional District subdivision servicing bylaw in force
from time to time, and the Drinking Water Protection Regulation; OR
b) Restrict development on any lot to only one single family dwelling unless and until a
water supply system is constructed meeting the standards contained in the Drinking
Water Protection Act and the Drinking Water Protection Regulations.
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
The Planning Department recommends that the proposal be given favourable consideration as it
represents a rural residential land use that is consistent with the Electoral Area “F” land use
designation of the subject property and complies with the previously noted Rural Residential
Land Policies in that the proposed lots:
a) are outside the ALR and are not adjacent to lands within the ALR;
b) are not in an area that has high capability for other uses such as gravel deposits, mining,
wildlife habitat, rare and endangered wildlife habitat, rare vegetation communities, springs
and domestic water supply (community watersheds);
c) are not in an area with slopes greater than 30%;
d) are not subject to flooding or in an area with a high water table;
e) would not be subject to excessive expenditures for services such as roads, electric power,
and school bussing for a proposed subdivision, as such services already exist;
f) would likely have the potential to be serviced with on-site sewage disposal systems as they
are proposed to be larger than 2 ha; and
g) can be provided with suitable building sites and private driveways; and
h) would not detract from the rural character of neighbourhood which contains lots to the
northwest that are zoned Country Residential or Small Holdings.
The applicant should note that the Ministry of Transportation has no objections to the Rezoning
application in principal, but would require a revised subdivision layout showing that the
proposed driveways can be located to provide adequate sight distances prior Rezoning
approval. The Ministry would also require, prior to final subdivision approval, that the driveways
and any required works be constructed.
The proposal has been reviewed against the OCP policy that requires a domestic water source
for all dwelling units that could be constructed on the proposed lots. In this case, the Country
Residential zone would permit up to two units per lot. In this regard, the applicant has only
demonstrated that a water source is available to the existing dwelling. The1995 hydrogeologist
report submitted by the applicant does not provide conclusive evidence that the proposed lots
could be serviced with an adequate on-site water supply.

To address the water supply policy of the OCP, it is recommended that prior to considering the
application at a Public Hearing, the applicant be required to demonstrate that the proposed lots
could potentially be serviced with a domestic water supply.
It is noted that as a condition of Building Permit approval, proposals to construct two family
dwellings on the property will be required to adhere to the Drinking Water Protection Act and
Regulations. As this is the case, the Planning Department suggests that it is not necessary to
register a covenant on the title of the proposed new lots as outlined in the Potable Water Supply
Policies of the OCP. However, registration of such a covenant could be required as a condition
of final adoption of the Bylaw associated with these applications if the Board wishes to ensure
that property owners and prospective purchasers are aware of these requirements.
SUMMARY:
This report relates to an application to rezone the property located at 1121 Enderby Mabel Lake
Road. The Planning Department recommends that Rezoning Bylaw No. 2586, 2013 be given
First and Second Readings as the proposal is generally consistent with the policies contained
within the Electoral Area “F” Official Community Plan. The Planning Department further
recommends that prior to scheduling a Public Hearing, the applicant is required to submit water
servicing information that complies with the domestic water supply policies of the OCP.
REFERRAL COMMENTS:
The application was referred for comments to the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Electoral Area “F” Director
Electoral Area “F” Advisory Planning Commission
Electoral Area Advisory Committee
Building Inspection Department
The Building Inspector has no comments or concerns with respect to the application.
5. Interior Health Authority
As the proposed subdivision application indicates that all proposed lots will be >2ha, our
agency has no comments on onsite sewage disposal per the Interior Health Subdivision
Guideline. Connection to a community water supply system (two or more connections) is
not identified in the submission as separate private well/water licenses are indicated in the
referral package provided. Should the applicant alter this proposal to include servicing with
either a new water supply system or an extension of an existing system, the referral should
be returned to our office for comment.
6. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) states that although they have no
objections, in principal, to this parcel being rezoned to Country Residential, the proposed
future subdivision layout would not be approved. A site inspection revealed that the
proposed driveway location for proposed Lot 3 does not have the required sight distance as
it is approximately 70m north of the curve on Enderby Mabel Lake Rd. A minimum of 120m
sight distance is required for residential accesses on this section of Enderby Mabel Lake Rd.
MoTI will approve the rezoning upon submission and acceptance of a revised subdivision
layout showing the driveways can be located to provide the minimum sight distance.

Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan Amendment
Bylaw No. 2675, 2015 (Development Permit Area- Protection of the
Natural Environment)
SUBJECT:
RECOMMENDATION:
That Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 2675, 2015 which
proposes to amend the Riparian Development Permit Area by expanding it to include protection of the
natural environment for lands within the Swan Lake area which are zoned Commercial and Industrial
and are developed for assembly, civic and public services uses, be given First Reading; and further,
That Bylaw No. 2675, 2015 be considered in conjunction with the Regional District of North Okanagan
Financial Plan and Waste Management Plan pursuant to Section 882 of the Local Government Act;
and further,
That the referral process outlined in the Planning Department report dated March 18, 2015 be
considered appropriate consultation for the purposes of Section 879 and 881 of the Local Government
Act, and further,
That Bylaw No. 2675, 2015 be given Second Reading, and further,
That a Public Hearing for Bylaw No. 2675, 2015 be scheduled in accordance with the provisions of
Section 890(2) of the Local Government Act.
BACKGROUND:
The Regional District of North Okanagan adopted the Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community
Plan Bylaw No. 2626, 2014 on September 3, 2014. Bylaw No. 2626, 2014 contains four Development
Permit Areas including the: Riparian Development Permit Area; Environmentally Sensitive Lands
Development Permit Area; Wildfire Interface Development Permit Area; and Commercial, Industrial
and Comprehensive Development Permit Area. The Riparian Development Permit Area was
established to regulate development activities in watercourses and their riparian areas in order to
preserve natural features, functions and conditions that support natural processes. After a year of
implementing the Riparian Development Permit Area, it has been identified that additional guidelines
should be included to provide assurances that proposed developments will not have a detrimental
impact on water quality within Electoral Areas “B” and “C” and specifically Swan Lake.
In order to ensure sewage disposal on lands within the Swan Lake area which are zoned Commercial
and Industrial and are developed for assembly, civic and public services uses takes into account the
protection of the natural environment the following changes are proposed:

Report to Board of Directors – March 18, 2015
Page 2
x
x
Expand the Development Permit Area to include lands zoned Commercial and Industrial or
lands developed for assembly, civic and public services uses within the Swan Lake area as
shown cross-hatched on the attached map which will become Schedule ‘J’ of the Official
Community Plan;
Rename the Riparian Development Permit Area to the “Riparian and Swan Lake Development
Permit Area”
o Make text amendments to the Official Community Plan as outlined in the attached track
changes document of this report.
By incorporating these changes, the RDNO will have the ability to ensure through the approval of
Development Permit applications that the natural environment, habitat and water quality of Swan Lake
are considered and protected for future generations.
Given that the previous OCP Bylaw No. 1708, 2003, contained provisions for Development Permits
for the protection of the natural environment outside of the 30 m RAR designation within the Swan
Lake Corridor, staff recommend an expedited bylaw adoption process to ensure these provisions are
in place for any future development applications. It is important to note that guidelines 16.2.6 (h) & (i)
have been designed to reflect the current and previous OCP policies which have been established for
rezoning applications within the Swan Lake area. Including these same considerations at the
Development Permit approval stage ensures that lands used for commercial, industrial, assembly,
civic and public services purposes would need to meet the same standards / thresholds for sewage
flows and backup drainfields as those considered at the rezoning stage. There was an extensive level
of public consultation during the review and up-date of the current Official Community Plan, Bylaw No.
2626, 2014 which resulted in clear feedback that environmental protection / considerations are
strongly supported by area residents.
Sections 879, 881 and 882 of the Local Government Act
Section 879 of the Local Government Act states that during the amendment of an OCP, the proposing
local government must provide one or more opportunities it considers appropriate for consultation with
persons, organizations and authorities it considers will be affected. Specifically, local governments
must consider whether consultation is required with a council of any municipality that is adjacent to
the area covered by the plan, First Nations, school districts and Provincial and Federal governments
and their agencies.
Section 881 of the Local Government Act states that if a local government proposes to amend an
OCP for an area that includes any part of a school district, the local government must consult with the
school district board at the time of preparing or amending the OCP.
Section 882 of the Local Government Act requires that, after First Reading, a local government
consider an Official Community Plan amendment in conjunction with its Financial Plan and any
applicable Solid Waste Management Plan.
In keeping with the above noted regulations, Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No.2675,
2015 has been referred to the following local governments and agencies:
x City of Vernon;
x Township of Spallumcheen;
x Okanagan Indian Band;
x Splatsin
x Ministry of Environment – Environmental Protection Division (Environmental Standards
Branch & Environmental Management Branch);
x Interior Health Authority;
x School District 22 & 83;

During this time it wou ld also be prudent to do some minor house keeping edits to Section 16.1General of the OCP where the Steep Slope Development Permit Area, which does not exist, was
missed and reference to it was not removed from the OCP.
SUMMARY:
It was recently noted that the Riparian Areas Development Permit Area does not include development
outside of the 30 m setback from a watercourse within the Swan Lake area. In order to ensure the
protection and preservation of the natural environment, habitat and water quality on lands within the
Electora l Areas "B" & "C" and specifically the Swan Lake area, staff are recommending the Riparian
Areas Development Perm it Area be expanded to include all lands as shown cross-hatched on the

16.1 GENERAL
Section 919 of the Local Government Act states that an Official Community Plan may designate
Development Permit Areas for one or more of the following purposes: for the protection of the
natural environment, protection of development from hazardous conditions, and/or to regulate
the form and character of commercial, industrial, or multi-family residential development.
There are 45 types of Development Permit Areas within the Community Plan area where
development permits are required:
x Riparian and Swan Lake Development Permit Area;
x Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area;
x Steep Slopes Development Permit Area;
x Wildfire Interface Development Permit Area; and
x Commercial, Industrial and Comprehensive Development Permit Area
16.1.1 Where land is subject to more than one Development Permit Area designation, a single
development permit is required. The application will be subject to the requirements of
all applicable Development Permit Areas, and any development permit issued will be in
accordance with the guidelines of all such areas.
16.1.2 Where new information is received concerning areas that may be hazardous or where
protection of the natural environment is justified, the Regional District will consider
designation of these areas within a Development Permit Area.
16.2 RIPARIAN AND SWAN LAKE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT AREA
Designation
16.2.1 The Riparian and Swan Lake Development Permit Area (RSLDPA) is designated under
Section 919.1(1)(a) of the Local Government Act. The primary objective of the Riparian
and Swan Lake Development Permit Area designation is to regulate development
activities in watercourses and their riparian areas and adjacent natural environments in
order to preserve natural features, functions and conditions that support natural
processes.
16.2.2 Unless a Development Permit exemption applies, development: on lands within the a
“Riparian Assessment Area” (as defined in section 16.2.4); and on lands within the Swan
Lake area shown cross-hatched on Schedule ‘J’ which are either zoned Commercial and

Industrial or are developed for assembly, civic and public services uses will require a
Riparian and Swan Lake Development Permit prior to any of the following activities:
a. Issuance of a Building permit;
b. Subdivision as defined in the Land Title Act and Strata Property Act; and
c. Land alteration
Area
16.2.3 The Regional District considers that Swan Lake, Goose Lake and Kalamalka Lake,all other
watercourses are within the Riparian Development Permit Area.
16.2.416.2.3 The RSLDPA is consistent with the Riparian Assessment Area (Figure 7), as is
defined under the Provincial Riparian Areas Regulation (RAR) as:
a. For a stream, the 30 meter strip on both sides of the stream measured from the
high water mark,
b. For a ravine less than 60 meters wide, a strip on both sides of the stream measured
from the high water mark to a point that is 30 meters beyond the top of the ravine
bank (e.g. BX Creek); and
c. For a ravine 60 meters wide or greater, a strip on both sides of the stream measured
from the high water mark to a point that is 10 meters beyond the top of the ravine
bank.
High water mark is defined under RAR as the visible high water mark of a stream where
the presence and action of the water are so common and usual, and so long continued
in all ordinary years, as to mark on the soil of the bed of the stream a character distinct
from that of its banks, in vegetation, as well as in the nature of the soil itself, and
includes the active floodplain.
Stream is defined under RAR as any of the following that provides fish habitat:
a. a watercourse, whether it usually contains water or not;
b. a pond, lake, river, creek or brook;
c. a ditch, spring or wetland that is connected by surface flow to something referred to
in paragraph a) or b).
Ravine is defined under the RAR as a narrow, steep sided valley that is commonly
eroded by running water and has a slope grade greater than 3:1.

Guidelines
16.2.616.2.5 Upon reviewing a Riparian and Swan Lake Development Permit application the
following guidelines will be considered:
a. land within an identified Streamside Protection & Enhancement Area (SPEA) as
determined by a QEP should be kept free of development with the exceptions of
fencing, works and plantings to control erosion, protect banks, protect fisheries or
otherwise preserve and enhance the natural water course and associated habitats;
b. where appropriate, fencing of sensitive habitat to protect fish bearing watercourses
from livestock or the public may be required as a condition of development
approval;

watercourse, pond or lake may be required so that it will be maintained to provide
shade for the water surface, bank stability, and wildlife or waterfowl habitat
sufficient for species which frequent the area;
d. a means of sewage disposal that does not discharge into a water body or
watercourse shall be installed for all developments.
e. where an on-site sewage disposal system is proposed within the Development
Permit Area, the Regional District will require that the sewage disposal works be
designed by a wastewater practitioner with consideration of the protection, by
Covenant, of a separate back-up sewage drainfield area. Based upon the scale of
development, proposed site alteration, topography, site coverage and extent of non
permeable paving, the Regional District, may require a stormwater and surface
drainage system be designed by an engineer; and
Notwithstanding these engineering requirements, the Regional District may also
request an independent appraisal of the subsurface soil conditions to review the
suitability of the site to absorb effluent;
f. for lands zoned Commercial and Industrial and lands developed for assembly, civic
and public services uses the applicant must provide evidence that the filings
required by the Sewerage System Regulation under the Public Health Act have been
made, or that a holding tank permit has been issued under the Regulation and the
proposed holding tank complies with Regional District of North Okanagan Holding
Tank Sewage Disposal Bylaw No. 671, 1985 and amendments thereto, or that
sewage will be disposed of in accordance with the Municipal Sewage Regulations
under the Environmental Management Act; and
g. where an on-site sewage disposal system is proposed as part of a commercial
development, a study of subsurface soil conditions may be required to be
undertaken by a qualified professional to determine the suitability of the proposed
system and septic tank, drainage and disposal fields or systems utilizing the
irrigation of waste water shall be prohibited in areas containing unsuitable soil or
groundwater which is subject to degradation;where an on site sewage disposal
system is proposed as part of a Commercial, Industrial or assembly, civic and public
services uses a report prepared by a qualified professional must be submitted to

16.3 ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LANDS DEVELOPMENT PERMIT
AREA
Designation
16.3.1 The Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area is designated in
accordance with Section 919.1(1) (a) of the Local Government Act for the protection of
the natural environment, its ecosystems and biological diversity. The primary objective
of the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area designation is to
regulate development activities in areas of High and Very High conservation value
(Schedule ‘C’) to protect rare and fragile terrestrial ecosystems and habitat for
endangered species or native rare vegetation or wildlife.
16.3.2 Unless a Development Permit exemption applies, development on lands of High or Very
High conservation value, as identified in Schedule ‘C’, will require an Environmentally
Sensitive Development Permit prior to any of the following activities:
a. Issuance of a Building permit;
b. Subdivision as defined in the Land Title Act and Strata Property Act; and
c. Land alteration
Area
Electoral Areas “B” and “C” contain a wide range of important natural features and
habitats, including lakes, riparian areas, wetlands, grasslands, rocky outcrops, steeply
sloped hillsides and mountain areas, major streams and forested lands. These diverse
areas support extensive plant and wildlife species, and are highly valued natural
features of the community. The environmental resources of the community are
identified in “Biodiversity Conservation Analysis for the North and Central Okanagan
Region” (Catalys Consulting, 2013). That study provides an assessment of
environmentally sensitive areas and identifies lands that have a High and Very High
conservation value, which forms the basis of the Environmentally Sensitive Lands
Development Permit Area designations of the OCP. The general location of these
74
Page 34 of 61
BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
April 1, 2015 - Item E.2
habitats and sensitive areas is indicated on Schedule ‘C’ (Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Development Permit Areas).
In addition the “Greater Vernon Natural Areas and Features Inventory” highlights
specific features that require due regard for their significance when reviewing a land
development proposal. These features are located in the general vicinity of:
a. Pottery Road Ravines
b. Black Rock
c. East Vernon Road Wetland (seepage) near BX Ranch
d. Portions of Bate and Brookside Creeks above Dixon Dam Road
e. Wildwood Gully upslope from Hitchcock Road
f. Abbott Creek Woodlands from Rogers Road eastward
g. Cools Pond
h. Herry Road Ravine east of Pleasant Valley Road
i. Rose’s Pond
j. Commonage Grasslands; particularly the slopes over looking the west shore of
Kalamalka Lake; and
k. Thompson Lake.
These areas are subject to the guidelines for lands ranked as High and Very High as identified in
Schedule ‘C’.
16.3.3 The Planning Department will provide a copy of the conservation rank mapping as it
relates to the applicants property. All development permit applications should use
available sensitive ecosystems inventories and other sources as a general guide, but
site-specific field investigation may be required to determine the actual environmental
values.
Development Permit Submission Requirements
16.3.4 Environmentally Sensitive Development Permit Area Applications should include a
detailed site plan that indicates:
a. location of existing and proposed buildings and structures in relation to any
sensitive areas on or adjacent to the subject property (e.g. watercourse, pond, lake,
vegetation stands, endangered / rare ecosystems, plant communities and wildlife
habitats) and;
b. location of existing and proposed driveways, parking areas and other impervious
surface areas; and
c. stormwater management systems and sediment control plans that will protect
water quality and quantity ; and
d. details on the proposed method of sewage disposal; and
e. in areas of Very High conservation ranking, as identified on Schedule ‘C’, an

in accordance with the following guidelines:
a. Development should be consistent with relevant provincial and federal legislation
and regulations (Fisheries Act, Waste Management Act, and guidelines “Develop
with Care: Environmental Guidelines for Urban and Rural Land Development in
British Columbia”; ‘Wetland Ways: Interim Guidelines for Wetland Protection and
Conservation in British Columbia 2009’; and ‘Designing and Implementing Ecosystem
Connectivity in the Okanagan’).
b. Site plans should minimize fragmentation of large forest or grassland patches
through careful siting of roads, infrastructure and development.
c. Developments and subdivisions should be designed to protect endangered,
threatened, or vulnerable species and plant communities, including critical habitat
such as a watercourse, pond, lake, vegetation stands, and wildlife habitats.
d. Careful site planning should avoid disturbance of steep slopes, particularly those
known to support sensitive plant or wildlife communities.
e. In areas of High Conservation Ranking where the scope and scale of development or
subdivision could have a significant impact (habitat destruction and or
fragmentation) on the sensitive lands and features present, with an area of
disturbance exceeding 500m2, an applicant may be required to supply an
environmental impact assessment and/or habitat assessment, prepared by a
Qualified Environmental Professional or person with similar qualifications and acting
in their area of expertise, which inventories the existing environmentally sensitive
feature(s) and assesses the environmental impact of the proposed development and
prescribes appropriate recommendations for construction, mitigation and
protection of habitat.
Guidelines (Very High Conservation Ranking)
16.3.6 In areas not covered by Sensitive Ecosystem Inventory mapping, including Cosens Bay
and the Westside, the Relative Biodiversity Mapping will be used in addition to the
Conservation Ranking mapping for properties that fall within the Very High category to
determine if a QEP report is required for the proposed development. Properties where
both the Conservation Ranking and Relative Biodiversity correspond with very high
rankings the Very High Guidelines will apply. Where the Relative Biodiversity ranking
does not correspond with the Conservation Ranking the General Guidelines for the High
Conservation Ranking (section 16.3.5) will apply.
16.3.7 In addition to the above noted guidelines in Section 16.3.5 lands that fall within the Very
High Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area are required to supply
an environmental impact assessment and/or habitat assessment, prepared by a
Qualified Environmental Professional. The QEP’s report shall consider the site-specific
natural and environmentally sensitive features that support ecosystem function, natural
geological processes, wildlife ecology, and unique ecosystems. These include, but are
not limited to:
a. Vegetation, trees, snags, root systems and wetlands;
b. Rare, endangered and uncommon species and plant communities;
c. Bird and other wildlife and their habitats, such as nesting and breeding areas;
76

fragmentation;
e. Wildlife habitat, including but not limited to wildlife breeding areas as well as
nesting and perch trees;
f. Recommendation of an appropriate timing of construction to minimize disruption to
ecological processes (e.g. periods of nesting and breeding) ; and,
g. Maintenance of linkages with adjacent sensitive ecosystems to minimize
fragmentation.
16.3.8 As a condition of the issuance of a development permit, the applicant may be required
to comply with any or all conditions recommended in the report prepared by a Qualified
Environmental Professional or other qualified professional.
16.3.9 In order to ensure that no additional encroachment occurs into the development permit
area at the time of construction, permanent or temporary fencing measures may be
required at the recommendation of the Qualified Environmental Professional or other
qualified professional.
16.3.10 The applicant may be required to supply a sediment and erosion plan, and or a
stormwater drainage plan complete with recommendations for implementation,
prepared by a registered professional engineer or person with similar qualifications at
the recommendation of the QEP or other qualified professional.
16.3.11 Site design and development should be consistent with reports prepared in accordance
with the guidelines of this and other DPAs. If development or alteration of land is
proposed within the Development Permit Area, it shall be located where it will cause
the least impact on environmentally sensitive features. Development shall only be
supported in areas with environmentally sensitive features if the applicant can provide
compelling reasons supported by a Qualified Environmental Professional’s
recommendation.
16.3.12 A Section 219 covenant, prepared at the applicant’s expense and to the satisfaction of
the Regional District, will be required to reflect the recommendations of the QEP report
including specifying areas that must remain free from development and/or protecting
an environmentally sensitive feature.
Exemptions
16.3.13 Notwithstanding the Policies of this Section and pursuant to Section 919.1 (4) of the
Local Government Act, the following development proposals may not require
Development Permits:
a. Development, upon submission to the Regional District of a written statement from a
Qualified Environmental Professional confirming the absence of an environmentally
sensitive ecosystem within the area that would be affected by the proposed work. The

16.4 WILDFIRE INTERFACE –PROTECTION OF DEVELOPMENT FROM
HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS
Designation
16.4.1 The Wildfire Interface Development Permit Area is designated under Section 919.1(1)(b)
of the Local Government Act. The primary objective of the Wildfire Interface
Development Permit Area designation is to ensure that particular development and
maintenance measures are implemented to protect persons and property from wildfire
hazard, and to ensure that property owners are aware of the wildfire hazard. It is also
important that ecosystem values are addressed in wildfire mitigation activities and not
overlooked during the assessment and implementation of works.
16.4.2 Unless a Development Permit exemption applies, development on lands, as identified in
Schedule ‘D’, will require a Wildfire Interface Development Permit prior to any of the
following activities:
a. Issuance of a Building permit; or
b. Subdivision as defined in the Land Title Act and Strata Property Act.
Area
16.4.3 The Okanagan has a naturally dry climate and Electoral Area “B” and “C” fall within the
community interface of large forested areas. Wildfire will be an ever-present threat and
therefore the areas shown on Schedule ‘D’ are designated as a development permit
area for the protection of development from wildfire hazard.
Development Permit Submission Requirements and General Guidelines
16.4.4 Development permit applications involving the construction of a building within the
development permit area must include a site plan and building plan indicating
compliance with the following guidelines, and it will be a condition of each development

permit that the land be developed and maintained in accordance with the approved site
plan and building plans:
a.
The area of the development parcel within 10 meters of any building under
construction should be kept free of flammable construction materials and debris.
b.
The area of the development parcel within 10 meters of any building should be
cleared and kept free of all fallen timber and other dead vegetation, and dead
standing timber should be removed from that area.
c.
Trees on the development parcel within 10 meters of any building should be
limbed to a height of 2 meters above ground level.
d.
Vegetation on the development parcel within 30 meters of any building should be
thinned to reduce the overall tree crown cover to approximately 3 to 6 meters
between crowns if the existing crown cover exceeds that amount.
e.
Roof coverings on every building must have a Class C fire resistance classification,
determined in accordance with the B.C. Building Code.
f.
Developers of new subdivisions in wildfire interface areas should consider the
integration of trails, roads and cleared park land around development which may
serve as fire breaks, and/or provide vehicle access routes to facilitate fire
suppression in interface areas.
g.
Building sites should be located on the flattest areas, avoiding gullies, saddles and
draws that may accumulate fire fuel and funnel winds.
h.
Integration of a defensible space around a building should include adequate
vehicle access, and access to a reliable water supply available to fire fighters.
i.
Eaves, attics, decks and openings under floors should be screened to prevent the
accumulation of combustible material and to block the entry of burning embers
(firebrands) that may be carried by the wind in advance of a wildfire.
16.4.5 Prior to the approval of any subdivision that would create four or more new lots within
the Wildfire Interface Development Permit Area, a report prepared by a Registered
Professional Forester shall be required that assesses the proposed development, and
a.
Provides recommendations that may form the basis of Development Permit
conditions, to minimize the risk of wildfire hazard but are also congruent with
Ecosystem Restoration Objectives and considers ecological values on the land or
landscape specifically wildlife, soil conservation and riparian habitat;
b.
May recommend that a Section 219 Restrictive Covenant be registered under the
Land Title Act against the tile for the subject property for all areas determined by
the Registered Professional Forester to be a risk of wildfire. The covenant must
incorporate the recommendations of the Registered Professional Forester and
save harmless the Regional District of North Okanagan in the event that damage
to property may occur as a result of a wildfire; or
c.
May conclude that the proposed development is not subject to significant wildfire
hazard.
16.4.6 Each development permit issued to authorize the construction of a building in the
development permit area shall bear a notation indicating that additional information on
the protection of development from wildfire hazard conditions is available in the “Home
Owners Fire Smart Manual” provided by the Forest Protection Branch of the BC Forest
Service.

under Section 919.1(1)(f) of the Local Government Act as an area for the establishment
of objectives and the provision of guidelines for the form and character of commercial,
industrial and comprehensive developments.
16.5.2 The Regional District has the objective of maintaining the attractive rural setting and
visual quality within Electoral Areas and to ensure that the form and character of
commercial and industrial developments are appropriately integrated into this rural
setting and coordinated with existing developments in these areas.
16.5.3 Unless a Development Permit exemption applies, all development on lands zoned
Commercial, Industrial or Comprehensive will require a Development Permit prior to
any of the following activities:
a. Issuance of a Building permit; and
b. Subdivision as defined in the Land Title Act and Strata Property Act.
Area
16.5.4 All properties that are designated or become zoned for Commercial, Industrial and

in the area and/or natural surroundings.
b. Elevations of the proposed buildings:
i.
Highlighting the form and architectural details of the building;
ii.
Exterior design; and
iii.
Finish materials including the proposed earth tone colour scheme
General Guidelines: Applicable to all properties zoned Commercial or Industrial
16.5.6 General principles of building siting and design are provided to help guide quality
building standards appropriate to the plan area as follows:
a. the massing of buildings should be variable in form and should be incorporated
where practical, into smaller blocks;
b. where more than one building is to be constructed on the site, the buildings should
share common architectural features;
c. exterior design and finish should incorporate products which complement the
natural setting and include materials in earth tone colours that are characteristic of
the region such as smooth face brick, stucco, stone, natural stained or painted
wood, or some combination of the above;
d. the form and character of development and landscaping should harmonize with the
natural setting and any proposed development and landscaping should:
i.
include groups of large native tree species that will be used to stabilize
graded areas; and
e. retain significant existing vegetation to maintain the existing character of the area.
This is especially important when development occurs adjacent to established rural
and low density residential areas; where commercial or industrial properties
border lands that are in the Agricultural Land Reserve a buffer of sufficient width
should be provided between highway commercial uses and agricultural lands. The
buffer must be landscaped but should not be incorporated into the overall land use
activities.
16.5.7 New development must provide safe and efficient vehicle entrances, exits and site
circulation minimizing conflicts between vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Vehicle
parking should be encouraged at the rear or side of a building and should be broken into
smaller groups, and the smaller groups should be separated with landscaping or natural
vegetation while still maintaining sight distances for safe access and egress.
Swan Lake Commercial Corridor Guidelines: Are to be considered in addition to the General
Guidelines above
16.5.8 Locate and orientate appropriate site uses to take advantage of views of the lake and
valley setting and maintain open sight lines between the highway and Swan Lake;
81
Page 41 of 61
BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
April 1, 2015 - Item E.2
16.5.9 Encourage variety in the building form, architecture and uses of commercial sites;
16.5.10 Use site planning, building design and landscaping to:
a. Reduce negative visual impacts of development, particularly as seen from Highway
97, Pleasant Valley Road and the Swan Lake area in general; and
b. Preserve open space amenities that reflect the rural, natural and residential context
of the area. Develop open space amenities that provide relief from expansive
commercial development.
c. Provide continuous pedestrian access and circulation along the length of the Swan
Lake Corridor as identified in Schedule H.
16.5.11 Building frontages should face collector road, cross streets or the common
parking/circulation space.
16.5.12 Encourage the arrangement of highway commercial uses in clusters. Cluster
developments are characterized by shared driveways, common parking/circulation
space and free-standing or shared buildings.
16.5.13 Discourage flat building facades. Encourage the use of projections, building “additions”
and articulated rooflines, eaves, entrances, windows, walkways, stairwells, patios and
public use areas.
16.5.14 Discourage the location and arrangement of buildings with blank walls facing the lake
and valley.

REPORT
File No.: 6140.12/Cedar Ridge Park
TO:
White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture
FROM:
Parks, Recreation and Culture
DATE:
March 2, 2015
SUBJECT:
Cedar Ridge Park – Neighbourhood Survey Results
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, staff be directed to bring forward short-term
recommendations for Cedar Ridge Park improvements for consideration and discussion; and further
That staff put together a cost to prepare a long-term concept plan for Cedar Ridge Park, and that this
item be considered in the 2016 budget deliberations.
SUMMARY:
This report is coming forward as a result of direction from the White Valley Parks, Recreation and
Culture Advisory Committee, and subsequently the Board of Directors, to have staff prepare and
distribute a park planning questionnaire to the residents surrounding Cedar Ridge Park, and bring
back results to the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee.
DISCUSSION:
On direction from the Board of Directors, staff prepared and distributed a survey to residents in the
surrounding neighbourhoods of Cedar Ridge Park at the end of 2014. The survey (Attachment “A”)
included questions regarding current park use, park satisfaction, and interest in future park
improvements. The survey was distributed by mail to each household, and respondents were given
the opportunity to complete the survey on-line, or using the survey form and returning it to the Village
of Lumby or RDNO office. Out of the ninety-one (91) surveys that were distributed, only fifteen (15)
surveys were returned (16.5%), nine of which came in paper-form and the rest on-line.
Given the reasonably low survey response rate, it is recommended that a neighbourhood meeting be
held prior to any significant park improvements being made, although there may be opportunity for
some minor improvements that are in-line with the survey feedback that can be done in the shorter
term. Some of the key items identified in the feedback include interest in improving play features for
children and youth; the opportunity to exercise dogs in the park; additional seating and picnicking
amenities (perhaps covered); and maintaining the natural setting that the park provides. The
development of the park concept plan should be included in future budget considerations.

REPORT
File No.: 6140.12.03 Marshall Park
TO:
Board of Directors
FROM:
Parks, Recreation and Culture
DATE:
March 23, 2015
SUBJECT:
Marshall Field’s – Parking Lot
RECOMMENDATION:
That the 2015 capital budget for the Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation Service (060) be amended
to include $35,000 from reserves for parking lot improvements at Marshall Field’s Park and further;
That the amended Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation 2015 capital budget be approved for
inclusion in the Regional District of North Okanagan’s 2015 Financial Plan.
SUMMARY:
As outlined in the Sub-Regional Parks and Trails Service Agreement, the City of Vernon will be
undertaking Phase 1 of the Okanagan Landing Flood Protection Project (Attachment “A”). These
drainage works and retention ponds will ultimately be covered under statutory right-of-way and
maintained by the City of Vernon for the overall drainage plan in the Okanagan Landing area.
Part of the City of Vernon’s Phase 1 drainage work involves repairing a portion of the parking lot
disturbed by construction. The restoration work is to provide improved drainage on the damaged
portions of the parking lot. The balance of the parking lot, separate from, and outside of the City of
Vernon’s current contract also requires some grading, drainage and surfacing to restore the heavily
used soccer parking lot which has over time become poorly drained and is made up in large part by
organic and clay material. The proposed use of funds of $35,000 would be issued as a change order
(Attachment “C”) to the contractor R355, who has agreed to honor existing unit price rates and would
include the following:
Parking Lot Area (3000m2)
- Sub-grade Preparation & Compaction of recycled asphalt product $5.38/m2 = $16,140
- Import Pit-Run $19,000
The result will be a much more durable and well-drained parking lot area for the heavily use during
soccer season (Attachment “B”).
Benefits provided from competitive unit rates due to the recent procurement process by the City of
Vernon, a fully mobilized contractor (R355) on-site, and the ability to use asphalt millings off other
road works provide a substantial cost savings to the RDNO should this project move forward. It is for
this reason that this project has been brought forward for consideration at this time.

Report to: Board of Directors
From: Parks, Recreation and Culture
Re: Marshall Field's Parking Lot
DISCUSSION:
It is typical that any proposed capital projects in the Sub-Regional Parks and Trails Service are first
brought to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee. Due to the current construction work underway,
and timing for the availability of asphalt millings, it was necessary that this issue brought directly to the
Board.
FINANCIAL/BUDGETARY CONSIDERATIONS:
Proposed project would require an amendment to the 2015 Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation
capital budget as well as inclusion into the Regional District of North Okanagan's 2015 financial plan.

Comments on Background report:
-
-
-
Challenge of obtaining skilled/seasonal workers through various government programs
Types of chemicals being used on farms, soil sample data to establish a baseline is
lacking (Shuswap Watershed Council’s preliminary work indicating the Shuswap River is
one of the highest sources of phosphorous in the lake system – indicating that upland
farming is the main cause)
Concerns with farming practices in Spallumcheen where an unconfined aquifer has
extremely high nitrate levels to the point where water is no longer potable
Weather characteristics noted in the report contains information from VernonColdstream Ranch, which is located at a higher elevation than the valley bottom where
the agriculture takes place so the numbers are skewed.
Barriers to farming should be identified
Comments on Market opportunities analysis:
- Trade corridors and products being moved in and out of the region – more discussion
required in analysis
- Concerns that marketing for organic products occurs with a negative impact/connotation
for mainstream producers/products.
- Very difficult to get local products into larger box stores, eg. Safeway
Next Steps:
- Provide comments to RDNO staff to send to the consultant for next meeting
- Valuable feedback that will inform the next steps
- Consultant will be in attendance at April meeting
- Stakeholder engagement in May
- Final product in June
Discussion ensued regarding:
- Some associations not being aware of the development of the Regional Agricultural Area
Plan. Will be addressed during the public and stakeholder engagement portion of the
workplan.
- Request for greater representation from other sectors, eg. Wine/cider, swine

Agricultural Land Commission Application
J. & J. deDood [File No. 15-0033-F-ALR]
Discussion ensued regarding the following:
- The reasons for the application
- Applicant’s proposal – accessory farm sales and a food service area approximately 2300
square feet located within an existing dairy barn. Farm market with retail sales of farm
products grown in area not necessarily from the farm where the market is located, more
than 50%
- Food service use requires an amendment to the zoning bylaw, which will require Ministry
of Transportation and Infrastructure’s endorsement
- Generally, the approval for non-farm use applications are quite restrictive – wouldn’t be
able to have a different non-farm use on the property if this proposal does not succeed
Comments:
- Covenant for only that use – food service
- Only item produced onsite is unpasteurized milk, will not meet 50% threshold (reason for
the application)
- Support local sales
- Concerns regarding how this sets precedent
- Cautious support
