2013 - 2017 Financial Plan Workshop
The General Manager, Finance presented information regarding the 2013 – 2017 Financial Plan
process, including budget process and timelines, the impact of the current economic
environment, and known issues and challenges to be faced. Instructions for the 2013 budget
were requested.
Budget Process & Timelines
It was discussed that today’s meeting was a s trategic input workshop at the board level, and
that committee meetings would be hel d to discuss the budget at the functional service levels
throughout November and D ecember. The tentative schedule for presentation of the
consolidated budget is as follows:
•
•
•
January 16, 2013 – Consolidated Budget Draft #1
February 13, 2013 – Consolidated Budget Revised
March 6, 2013 – Financial Plan Bylaw Adoption
Economic Environment
A number of issues were identified that would impact the 2013 budget development, including
political and r egulatory issues, the socio – demographic profile, economic and financial
considerations, as well as the organizational situation.
It was noted that we face many political and regulatory issues that may affect the 2013 budget.
The provincial election with a c urrent target date of May 14, 2013 br ings uncertainty about
potential changes. Grant programs have been largely allocated, and there will be limited
increases in existing programs. Exterior agencies (ex: Interior Health Authority) and increased
reporting requirements for grant programs are adding to increased costs.
Various socio – economic indices were provided indicating where the Regional District of North
Okanagan stands amongst other British Columbia local governments.
It was discussed that there are significantly divergent opinions among economists regarding
forecasts for future economic conditions. Current expectations are that the economic
environment will be quite similar to those of the current year. There a forecasts that there will
be a significant reduction in housing starts, as well as a weakening inflationary environment.
Key Issues
A brief overview of key issues was provided for each of the main functional areas. It was
indicated that a more in-depth discussion of issues would take place at the committee level.
It was requested that special committee meetings also be hel d specifically regarding General
Government (010), Transit (871), and Solid Waste (670).

REPORT
File No.: 3900.2564
TO:
Electoral Area Advisory Committee
FROM:
David Sewell
DATE:
September 24,2012
SUBJECT:
Electoral Area Property Tax Exemptions 2013
RECOMMENDATION:
That staff be provided direction as to which properties should be included in the Electoral Area
2013 Property Tax Exemption Bylaw and subsequently brought forward to the Regional Board
for adoption.
ISSUE:
In accordance with Section 809 (3) of the Local Government Act, the Regional Board may, by
bylaw, exempt certain properties from taxation for the next calendar year.
DISCUSSION:
Approval of property tax exemption by the Regional District under the Local Government Act
exempts these properties from all property taxes collected for the year including ProvincialRural, School District, and Hospital.
Once a property has been exempted from taxation for that year by a municipality or regional
district, the assessed va lue for that property is not included in the total amount of net taxable
values of land and improvements as calculated by the BC Assessment Authority. Therefore,
any participation in a regional district function by the municipality or electoral area containing tax
exempt property is affected by a reduction in net taxable values for apportionment purposes.
The communication of the RDNO Property Tax Exemption Policy was advertised to advise
potential applications for tax exempt status of the policy requirements and deadlines.
The following organizations have requested to be exempt from taxation on both land and
improvements for the year 2013:

in.

The current Electoral Areas “B” and “C” and Westside OCPs were adopted in 2003 and 1989
respectively. Since, there have been a number of amendments to the plans, changes to provincial
legislation and the adoption of the RDNO Regional Growth Strategy Bylaw which all need to be
reflected within a combined OCP.
Terms of References for the review of the OCPs have been developed by staff in consultation with the
Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Directors and were endorsed by the Board of Directors on September 19,
2012.
The project will be largely completed internally by RDNO staff with the possibility of contracting out the
Swan Lake Corridor section. The decision to undertake this OCP review internally is based on the
need to ensure the final product addresses all the issues identified by planning staff as well as the
community and to avoid duplication of effort which was the experience in the case of the recent review
of the Electoral Area “D” and “E” OCP. In the case of the “D” and “E” OCP review a consultant was
contracted to undertake the review at a cost of $69,630.00. In addition to this RDNO staff spent an
excess of 500 hours on the review at an estimated cost of over $23,000.00. It is felt that an internal
review will be a more efficient use of funds and staff time.
Funding
The project has been assessed utilising the Regional District of North Okanagan Community Works
Fund Project Assessment – Tier 2 which is attached to this report for review and information. The
project meets the criteria of the Community Works Fund under the category of Capacity Building as
long as principles of Integrated Community Sustainability Planning are integrated into the review and
this is clearly stated within the Terms of Reference.

Integration with other Regional District of North Okanagan initiatives
A review of the Electoral Areas “B” and “C” OCP and the Westside Area B OCP will
ensure consistency with policy changes in other OCPs where applicable and will
include consideration of the North Okanagan Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) and the
policies embedded within it.
Justification for prioritisation of project
The current Electoral Area “B” and “C” and Westside OCPs were adopted in 2003 and
1989 respectively. Since, there have been a number of amendments to the plans,
changes to provincial legislation and the adoption of a RDNO Regional Growth
Strategy (RGS) Bylaw which all need to be reflected within a combined OCP.

REPORT
File No.: 5720.16.6
TO:
Electoral Area Advisory Committee
FROM:
Engineering Department
DATE:
September 11, 2012
SUBJECT:
Combining Funds allocated to Community Works Fund Projects #
044 and #049
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that the Community Works Projects No. #44 and
#49 be combined at a net total of $25,900 excluding HST to fund backflow protection on the Ranch
Well 1 and to install an annular seal on the Antwerp Deep Well.
DISCUSSION:
Community Works project #44 provided $7,800 to fund the installation of the annular seal for the
Antwerp Deep Well, which was completed in August of 2012. Due to extremely difficult site conditions
and inaccurate as-built drawings, the project took three days to complete instead of the budgeted one
day and more equipment was required than originally anticipated due to dewatering requirements.
This has caused an overrun in the budget, with an anticipated final estimated total of $30,000.
Community Works project #49 provided $18,000 to fund backflow protection on the Ranch Well 1.
This cost was based on discussions with a local civil engineer and included the installation of a
manhole to provide an air gap. Based on discussions with Interior Health, an alternative was
proposed where the current outflow pipe will be extended horizontally to provide an airgap and a
tideflex check valve will be installed at the pipe end. This design is acceptable to Interior Health and
does not include any excavation or concrete structures and has reduced the cost of the project
significantly to an estimated $5,000.
As both projects have the same objective of safeguarding the GVW potable water supply and
providing backup sources in times of peak demand or emergencies, the funds provided for these
projects by the Community Works Program will be combined to fund both projects and alleviate the
cost overruns in project #44.
BACKGROUND/HISTORY:
In January 2010, the Tier 1 Community Works project #44 budget to install an annular seal to the
Antwerp Deep Well was approved for $7,900.
I n February 2010, the Tier 2 Community Works project #49 budget to install backflow protection on
Coldstream Well 1 was approved for $18,000.
Both the Antwerp Deep Well and the Coldstream Well 1 are potable water sources that can be utilized
by the GVW. Both wells are generally used to supply water during peak demand times and can also

be utilized as a back up source during drought or during emergencies. These two wells were
identified as important backup sources for the next two summers until sufficient demand is removed
from the Duteau Treatment Plant via separation projects.
In order to use these wells in the potable water system, Interior Health required that backflow
prevention be installed on the Coldstream Well 1 and an annular seal be installed on the Antwerp
Deep Well. Cost estimates were completed based on assumed site conditions and IH requirements
requirements..
Community Works Funds were applied for based on these best estimates.
FINANCIAL/BUDGETARY CONSIDERATIONS:
The combination of Community Works Funds 44 and 49 is a total $25,900 excluding HST. The
remaining funding will be provided from the GVW well operation and maintenance account.
PERSONNEL IMPLICATIONS:
None.
SUMMARY:
The Community Works Projects No.
No, 44 and 49 will be combined at a net total of $25,900 excluding
HST to fund backflow protection on the Coldstream Well 1 and to install an annular seal on the
Antwerp Deep Well.

October 17, 2012 - Item D.4
REGIONAL DISTRICT
of
NORTH OKANAGAN
REPORT
File No.: 3045.02
TO:
Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee
FROM:
Anthony Kittel, Regional Growth Strategy Coordinator
DATE:
September 13, 2012
SUBJECT:
Regional Planning (031) Financial Plan: 2013-2015
RECOMMENDATION:
That the report dated September 13, 2012 from the Regional Growth Strategy Coordinator regarding
the 2013-2015 Regional Planning (031) Financial Plan be received for information; and further,
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that the 2013-2015 Regional Planning (031)
Financial Plan be supported in principle.
DISCUSSION:
Each year, the Regional District prepares an updated five year financial plan that represents the
operation of each service from one budget year to the next. The yearly budget process utilizes ‘zerobased’ budgeting concepts meaning that each service is assessed and budgets created based on the
service work plans and priorities. Both expenditures and revenue sources are evaluated to ensure the
financial plan is current, sound and can achieve the service priorities as outlined. The Regional
Planning (031) budgeting exercises are consistent with this approach and have been undertaken in a
prudent and conservative manner, minimizing additional requisition commitments from the partners.
The Regional Planning (031) Financial Plan for 2013-2015 is based upon current requisitions, 2012
budget and expenditures, general ledger information and grants that have been received or approved
to date, including: 1) Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia (Monitoring and Evaluation) =
$76,400 and 2) Gas Tax Regionally Significant Projects (Regional Context Statements) = $250,000.
The Financial Plan does not include grants that are under consideration (UBCM Gas Tax
ICSP/Capacity Building Grant for $440,000) or grants that have been identified but not acted on for
specific Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) implementation projects. The attached Financial Plan
demonstrates that Regional Planning (031) is sustainable over 2013/2014 based upon current grant
funding and the following assumptions:
1. 031 Requisitions will increase 3% annually for 2013-2015;
2. The 2012 Regional Growth surplus, due to delays in the 2012 Work Program, are transferred
to the 2013 budget to accommodate those tasks;
3. Reallocation to other cost centres is between 15% and 20%, which translates into RGS
Coordinator cost recovery when assigned to other projects (current planning applications,
OCPs, long range planning projects, special projects, etc);

Regional Planning (031) Financial Plan: 2013-2015
Report to Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee – September 13, 2012
Page 2
4. The Financial Plan does not reflect funding required for priority RGS Action Plan projects that
require matching funding. It is anticipated that funding priority RGS implementation projects
that require resources beyond those available in-house will be discussed during the 2013
budget deliberations; and,
5. Employee cost recovery (General Manager, Planning and Building’s time) is reduced by 60%
from 2012 allocations to reflect RGS implementation staffing requirements;
Any grant funds received will alter the allocation within the budget, although Regional Growth (031)
could be fully resourced and is stable in the near term (2013/2014), based upon projected requisition
and approved grants. Regional Growth requisition may need to be reconsidered in 2015 if other
sources of grant funding cannot be secured prior to 2015 budget deliberations.
2013 REGIONAL GROWTH (031) WORK PROGRAM SUMMARY
The 2013 Regional Growth (031) work plan includes:
 Managing the Regional Growth program;
 Completing and implementing the 5-Year Actions Plan;
 Managing, facilitating and/or participating in RGS partnership initiatives (i.e. Biodiversity
Conservation Strategy, Employment Lands Inventory, Regional Agricultural Producer
Database, etc);
 Completing and implementing the RGS Monitoring and Evaluation program;
 Reporting on RGS implementation progress;
 Undertaking stakeholder and public communication of RGS progress and initiatives;
 Facilitating public and stakeholder consultation as needed;
 Coordinating the various committees that are under Regional Growth, including the Regional
Growth Management Advisory Committee (RGMAC), Regional Agricultural Advisory
Committee (RAAC) and the Intergovernmental Advisory Committee (IAC);
 Supporting, facilitating, reviewing and/or drafting (if requested) regional context statements;
 Review of Regional District bylaws and policies for RGS consistency.
LEGAL/STATUTORY PROCEDURAL REQUIREMENTS:
The Regional Planning (031) 2013-2015 Financial Plan is recommended to be included in the
consolidated RDNO Financial Plan Bylaw prior to adoption.
FINANCIAL/BUDGETARY CONSIDERATIONS:
Implementing the RGS under Regional Planning (031) is funded through a combination of grants and
requisitions. RGS funding, to date, includes senior government grants that total $1,098,617.94 and a
Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia totalling $76,400. The requisition for the RGS program in
2012 was $88,254 for a budget of $265,514. It is anticipated that the 2013 RGS work program, taking
into consideration the grants received to date, would result in a requisition increase of 3% within the
2013 budget. The budget includes $25,000 that will be available to fund implementation projects and
plans that are considered a priority of the Board of Directors. Staff acknowledges that this is a very
tight project budget. The Regional Growth Strategy Coordinator will be responsible for undertaking
implementation actions that do not require external resources, as identified within the 5-Year Action
Plan.

Regional Planning (031) Financial Plan: 2013-2015
Report to Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee – September 13, 2012
Page 3
During RGS implementation, all jurisdictions have been working together in providing in-kind staff
resources on initiatives that are regional in scope or require collaborative and coordinated action. It is
anticipated that this situation will continue into the future.
Staff has consulted with other regional districts who have adopted RGS bylaws and they have
indicated that staff resources and funding is required on an ongoing basis to implement the policies
contained in an RGS, consult with the public and participating jurisdictions, monitor the performance
of the RGS, report out on process and coordinate and/or manage RGS actions.
In order to assist with future financial planning process, staff will continue to pursue funding
opportunities to support priority RGS initiatives and actions.
PERSONNEL IMPLICATIONS:
The current staff resources under Regional Planning (031) would not be impacted by the proposed
2013-2015 Financial Plan and additional staffing capacity would not be required.
INTERDEPARTMENTAL INVOLVEMENT/IMPLICATIONS
The Finance Department has assisted the Planning and Building Department by providing all of the
current budget (2010-2012) information contained within this report.
SUMMARY:
The development of the Regional Growth Strategy was undertaken in a fiscally prudent and efficient
manner, resulting in the adoption of the RGS Bylaw on September 21, 2011. As a result of this fiscal
prudence, the Regional Growth program was able to undertake implementation initiatives over the first
year with the remaining Regionally Significant Grant funding.
The Regional Planning (031) 2013-2015 Financial Plan continues this fiscally prudent approach, using
current staff resources as effectively as possible to implement the RGS and support regional planning
initiatives. As a result of grants that have been received for 2013-2015, a 3% requisition increase for
2013 is requested to offset inflation.
It is recommended to the Board of Directors that the 2013-2015 Regional Planning (031) Financial
Plan be supported in principle and included within the 2013 RDNO Financial Plan.

REPORT
File No.: 3045.12.03.04
TO:
Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee
FROM:
Anthony Kittel, Regional Growth Strategy Coordinator
DATE:
September 12, 2012
SUBJECT:
SIDIT Grant Application: Farmers' Market Signage
RECOMMENDATION:
That the report dated September 12, 2012 from the Regional Growth Strategy Coordinator regarding
Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust (SIDIT) Grant Application for Farmers’ market Signage
be received for information; and further,
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that the request to develop a SIDIT Grant
Application for Farmers’ Market Signage be referred to the Agricultural Advisory Committee for
discussion regarding approach when developing the grant application.
DISCUSSION:
The Board of Directors adopted the following resolution on September 5, 2012:
“That the Regional District of North Okanagan apply to the Southern Interior
Development Initiative Trust (SIDIT) for improved marketing and signage for all Regional
District of North Okanagan farmer’s markets or public markets.”
The SIDIT grant program is fully subscribed for 2012 and grant applications for will not be considered
until April 2013. The Regional District has sufficient time to explore options, partnerships and
appropriate lead organization(s) that will result in a successful application.
A SIDIT Grant application must demonstrate an increase in employment as one of the core criteria
and requires the commitment of matching funds for the amount requested. The Regional District
does not have an Economic Development or Regional Agricultural function to provide matching
funding as required. These matching funds would need to be considered during the 2013 budget
deliberations.
Regional Planning’s (031) mandate is restricted to regional growth management planning and
implementation of the Regional Growth Strategy, including participating in partnership initiatives.
Specific operational initiatives (such as the installation and management of capital assets) are outside
of the scope of the Planning and Building department.
During the preparation of the SIDIT grant, several issues will need to be considered:
a) Is the signage that is applied for a regional district asset, a member municipality asset or a
private asset (farmers’ market organization)? The Regional District does not have jurisdiction

over sign placement, installation, maintenance and replacement within member municipalities.
Local jurisdictions have authority over signage through their bylaws. The approach taken
must consider Regional District service and budgetary implications regarding installation,
maintenance and replacement of the signage.
b) Matching funds are required for a SIDIT application and regional economic development and
signage infrastructure are currently outside of the Regional District’s service mandate.
c) How will the installation of market signage directly translate into an increase in employment
within the North Okanagan, a key criteria of the SIDIT grant application.
d) Is it more appropriate for the City of Vernon Economic Development Department, as the only
economic development service in the North Okanagan, or the Farmers’ Market Organizations,
as the primary recipients of benefit, to be the lead organization(s) for this SIDIT application.
It is recommended that the request to development this SIDIT application be referred to the
Agricultural Advisory Committee for discussion regarding approach when developing the grant
application.

SIDIT Grant Application : Farmers' Market Signage
Report to Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee - September 12, 2012
Page 3
SUMMARY:
SIDIT has fully allocated all grant funds for 2012 and will not be reviewing additional grant
applications until April 2013. The Regional District has sufficient time prior to the application deadline
to explore the various options that may result in a successful SIDIT application for farmers' market
signage throughout the North Okanagan. A number of challenges have been identified and will need
to be resolved prior to the development of a SIDIT application package.
It should be noted that member municipalities and Electoral Areas have jurisdiction over signage
(through bylaw) within their boundaries and wou ld also be contributors, through requisition in 2013, of
the matching funds required by SIDIT.
Since the beneficiaries of this grant will be North Okanagan farmers ' markets and agricultural
producers, it is recommended that SIDIT grant application be referred to the Agricultural Advisory
Committee for discussion.

SUBJECT:
Amendment to Policy 2.15, the Permitted Maximum Number of Water
Services
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that Policy 2.15 - North Okanagan Water Authority
- Permitted Maximum Number of Water Services Policy be repealed; and further
That Regional District of North Okanagan Policy No. ENG-WTR-001 - Permitted Maximum Number of
Water Services be approved.
SUMMARY:
Mr. Sid Sidhu (property owner) has made application to the City of Vernon for a building permit to
construct a residence at the Davison Road frontage of a property located at 4965 Bella Vista Road.
Mr. Sidhu has inquired to GVW regarding a domestic water connection to the residence, but was
advised that pursuant to Policy 2.15 a property is limited to one water service; except where a
property area is greater than ten hectares. Mr. Sidhu subsequently appeared as a delegation before
the Board of Directors on September 6, 2012 to request consideration of a waiver to Policy 2.15 to
provide for a second domestic connection to the new house under construction.
Policy 2.15 was adopted in 1999 by the Board of Directors. Recent water system separation
upgrades to the Greater Vernon Water system indicate that an amendment to Policy 2.15 is
appropriate at this time.
Following a review of the policy, staff recommend that NOWA Policy 2.15 be repealed and replaced
with Policy No. ENG-WTR-001.
DISCUSSION:
RDNO Policy 2.15 (Permitted Maximum Number of Water Services) was approved by the Regional
Board on April 15, 1999 (attachment "A"). The current policy limits each property to one water service
connection, even in a case where one connection is from the potable water system and another is
proposed from the non-potable water system. Greater Vernon Water (GVW) has the ability to provide
both potable and non-potable connections to specific areas within the service area, therefore Policy
2.15 should be amended to address properties where the applicant has the ability to access both the
potable and non-potable water connections.

Policy 2.15
1. When reviewing the current policy and the property owner's request for a second domestic
connection staff noted that the property is currently served by four water service connections; one
from the potable water system and three from the non-potable system. At the time of installation
of the three (3) original connections to the property the water system was managed by the Vernon
Irrigation District. The VID did not have a policy to limit the number of water service connections
and the VID installed them at the property owner's expense. When the potable water main was
installed on Davison Road by GVW this introduced a separated water system to the area and one
water service connection for domestic purposes was installed for the existing house. The property
owner is constructing the new home at Davison Road and the proposed connection would be
approximately 200m east of the existing potable water service connection.
2. The current policy does not consider the cost to the property owner of constructing and connecting
a water main on site. The subject property is less than 10 ha and there is more than 100 m of
water line required. The cost to make the connection on-site would be approx. $10,000 and the
cost of a new connection from the water main to the new home would likely be less than $5,000.
In order that customers benefit from fronting a water line staff are recommending the policy be
amended to address properties that have a distance between existing water service connection(s)
exceeding 100m in which case more than one water service connection may be approved by the
General Manager of Engineering or designate.
3. For properties having an approved design flow exceeding 25 lis a single service connection of
150mm diameter or greater would be required (i.e. irrigation to service a center pivot and
additional areas requiring irrigation).
Following a review of the existing policy, staff recommend that NOWA Policy 2.15 be repealed and
replaced with Policy No. ENG-WTR-001.

Coldstream Creek- Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and
Assessment Response Plan
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that a Coldstream Creek - Kalamalka Lake
Watershed Protection and Assessment Response Planning process in the fall of 2012 be supported;
and further
That the Board of Directors endorse the Terms of Reference for the Kalamalka Lake Coldstream
Creek Watershed Protection and Assessment Response Planning Committee as outlined in Appendix
B of the report dated August 16, 2012 and further
That a Coldstream Creek - Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and Assessment Response Plan
budget and capacity requirement be developed.
SUMMARY:
On November 16, 2011 the Regional District Board of Directors passed the following resolution:
"That the Final Report dated September 9, 2011 prepared by Larratt Aquatic re: Source Assessment
of the Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water Utility North Kalamalka Lake
Intake be endorsed; and further,
That the Final Report dated September 9, 2011 prepared by Larratl Aquatic re: Source Assessment of
the Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water Utility North Kalamalka Lake Intake
be forwarded to Interior Health Authority to partially fulfill the terms and conditions as required by the
Greater Vernon Water Permit to Operate."
The Assessment and recommendations will assist in the objective outlined in GVW's "Permit to
Operate" to initiate an Assessment Response Plan which will include the establishment of strategies
and target dates for resolving issues; discuss recommendations ; maintain a source protection
program; and contingency and emergency plan.
RDNO staff seek direction from the Board of Directors on the role they wish to see RDNO take on
establishing a Co ldstream Creek - Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and Assessment Response
Plan process that would incorporate the Source Water Assessment of the North Kalamalka Lake
Intake and other assessments and studies completed on Coldstream Creek.

From : Renee Clark
Re: Coldstream Kal Lake W atershed
DISCUSSION:
In April 2012 GVW and planning staff discussed efforts to provide an Assessment Response Plan for
the Kalamalka Lake Intake and how to implement recommendations . A major component of protecting
the intake is to establish strategies to resolve issues that impact drinking water. The idea of a
Goldstream Greek- Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and Assessment Response Plan was
discussed. The objective of including Goldstream Greek in the Assessment Response Plan would be
to mitigate the impacts the creek and land use within the watershed have on the quality and quantity
of water in Kalamalka Lake.
The protection zone established by the assessment encompasses the area that water currents can
travel in a two hour period with 80% of wind events that occur on the lake (Attachment A) . The
assessment also concludes that 80% of the annual inflow into Kalamalka Lake is from Goldstream
Greek. During years of flooding and high inflows (freshet) the sediment from Goldstream Greek can
greatly impact the water quality at the intake. In 2012 that intake was turned off twice due to high
turbidity events. Turbidity in Goldstream Greek was above 100 NTU in both incidents.
In 2009 the District of Goldstream completed Sensitive Habitat Inventory Mapping (SHIM) on
Goldstream Greek and some of its tributaries . There were a number of recommendations that were
generated. During a similar time the Ministry of Environment (MOE) completed a two year sampling
program on Goldstream Greek which provided information on Goldstream Greek's water quality. The
District of Goldstream (DoG) has been implementing some strategies to reduce impacts to water
quality over the past three years .
Staff discussion included various short-term solutions as well as the need for a long-term , integrated
planning process to address the wide spectrum of issues in the assessment, the SHIM and MOE's
water quality study. It was suggested to present the idea first to the District of Goldstream since
Goldstream Greek flows within their jurisdiction and also to the Kalamalka Lake Ad Hoc Gommittee.
BACKGROUND/HISTORY:
The RDNO is involved with a number of proposed or existing projects that will inform and contribute to
improved management of the Kalamalka Lake and Goldstream Greek watershed . These are outlined
in Table 1: Kalamalka Lake and Goldstream Greek Related Projects. These projects provide an
indication of the level of interest that already exists in watershed issues.

The RONO Water Quality Manager, Renee Clark presented the concept of a Coldstream CreekKalamalka Lake Watershed Management and Response Plan to the ~istrict of Coldstream Committee
of the Whole on May 22, 2012 and suggested a co-facilitated plan. The Council agreed with the idea
of an integrated plan , sharing information, better collaborative effort in establishing priorities, funding
applications and lobbying the Province at the UBCM for source water protection. The DoC Council
suggested that a budget be determined and be provided to GVAC. It was also suggested that RONO
look at capacity to fulfill the process. The following ideas were also provided:
It was suggested that the proposed Sub-Regional Working Group could request an appointment with
the Ministry of Environment at the upcoming Union of British Columbia Municipalities Conference to
request funding for the proposed Collaborative Watershed Planning and Response Plan.
A second presentation was provided to the Kalamalka Lake Ad Hoc Committee May 30, 201 2.
Discussion took place regarding funding and the process for bringing forward the concept and the
following motion was passed:

Re: Coldstream Kal Lake Watershed
That once detailed financial information is developed, the concept of an Integrated Watershed Plan for
Coldstream Creek and Kalamalka Lake Committee be presented to the Greater Vernon Advisory
Committee and the Regional Growth Management Advisory Committee for consideration.
Discussion took place that the Kalamalka Lake Ad Hoc Committee could be disbanded in the event
that an Watershed Planning Committee is established.
LEGAL/STATUTORY AUTHORITY:
The Coldstream Creek and Kalamalka Lake Watershed cross a number of jurisdictions from the
headwaters located in Silver Star Mountain: Electoral Area C, Province of BC Crown Land, District of
Coldstream, Regional District of North and Central Okanagan and District of Lake Country. The water
quality impacts water licensing held by the Regional District of North Okanagan and its customers in
the City of Vernon, District of Coldstream, portions of Electoral Areas Band C and bulk customers in
Spallumcheen and Area D.
LEGAL/STATUTORY PROCEDURAL REQUIREMENTS:
The Regional Growth Strategy vision could be the vehicle through which the Regional District
addresses the planning needs within the Coldstream Creek and Kalamalka Lake watershed. There
are at least four growth issues that can be applied and implemented to assist:
1) Water Stewardship
2) Environment and Natural Lands
3) Agriculture and Food Systems, and
4) Economic Development
FINANCIAL/BUDGETARY CONSIDERATIONS:
The RDNO Water Quality Manager leads a smaller process for the Duteau Creek Watershed
Assessment Response Plan and an annual budget is established for work identified in the annual
planning sessions. However, the Coldstream Creek - Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and
Assessment Response Plan would incorporate a much more dynamic watershed with urban and rural
land use. An initial fact finding meeting is recommended for the fall of 2012 which would include
Provincial and Federal Resource Agencies that have invested interest and information to provide. The
initial meeting would cost approximately $2,000 including a consu ltant for facilitation. If facilitation is
provided through RDNO staff the initial meeting wou ld be approximately $500 if held at the Regional
District of North Okanagan office. These dollars are available in the 2012 budget in GVWU Watershed
Protection.
Support and implementation of a Coldstream Creek - Kalamalka Lake Watershed Protection and
Assessment Response Plan process would include an estimated budget of $ 50,000 for 2013.
PERSONNEL IMPLICATIONS:
A staff member (0.5 positions) will be required to lead the implementation of this process or there will
be a need to retain a consultant to facilitate stakeholder meetings and support the process. Clerical
staff will be needed to assist in recording minutes for stakeholder meetings. The organization and
facil itation of stakeholder meetings, grants applications and the overseeing of the Coldstream Creek-

Re: Coldstream Kal Lake Watershed
Kalamalka Lake Watershed Assessment Response plan would be beyond staff capacity at this time. It
is recommended to contract or look at capacity within the RDNO fulltime staff or casual staff to
provide capacity for this initiative.
COMMUNICATIONS CONSIDERATIONS:
The Goldstream Greek - Kalamalka Lake Watershed Assessment Response Plan is of interest to the
public and local and provincial governments. Providing a forum to share information, prioritize
improvements and access funding through collaborate efforts will provide the ground work to access
funding from various sources. The outcomes of the proposed watershed plan will be to define roles ,
responsibilities and jurisdictions ; it will strengthen relationships through values , trust and respect plus
build public and political support.

Kal Lakel Coldstream Creek Watershed Protection
And Assessment Response Planning Committees
Background
As stated by the Okanagan Basin Water Board "Clean Water is the most precious
natural asset in the Okanagan and is essential to the beauty of our landscapes, healthy
economy and the well being of our citizens".
On November 29, 2011 Greater Vernon Water (GVW) provided Interior Health (I H) with
the Source Water Assessment for the North Kalamalka Lake Intake (the Assessment) in
response to the terms and conditions in the Drinking Water Quality Improvement
Program Conditions on Permit. To complete this Condition on Permit - GVW must
provide an Assessment Response Plan. This implementation stage will be the key to a
successful Source Water Protection Plan (Plan)
The Plan is intended to be a framework and guide designed to achieve a desired
watershed condition through the cooperation of key stakeholders, community groups
and community members. The only way the plan will work is if all the stakeholders and
the public see themselves as partners with a common goal. Stakeholder meetings are
to be collaborative planning rather than conflict resolution, will increase knowledge of all
stakeholders and find creative yet sound ways to move forward with the
recommendations in the Assessment.
Scope
The planning process wi ll assist in meeting the Condition on Permit which is to provide
an Assessment Response Plan for the Kalamalka Lake Intake. It wi ll also provide a
means to accomplish recommendations from other technical documents and studies
and a forum to deal with issues that arise.
This planning initiative for Coldstream Creek will cross a number of jurisdictions from
the headwaters located at Silver Star Mountain (Electoral Area C) , Province of BC
Crown Land, District of Coldstream, Regional District of North and Central Okanagan
and District of Lake Country. The water quality impacts water licensing held by the
Regional District of North Okanagan and its customers in the City of Vernon, District of
Coldstream, portions of Electoral Areas Band C and bulk supply areas in Spallumcheen
and Electoral Area D. Therefore, the Greater Vernon Water Advisory Committee would
be given the role of review before the Plan it is forwarded to the Regional Board for
approval.
In order to establish and identify the issues, potential objectives and strateg ies for the

DATE:

SUBJECT:
Recreation Center Statutory Right of Way - Pool Staff Room
RECOMMENDATION
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors that staff be directed to proceed with execution of
modification of the existing Statutory Right of Way on the Regional District of North Okanagan owned
property, legally described as Lot 4, Section 3, Township 8, ODYD, Plan KAP76941 and covenant
plans to accommodate the pool staff room addition.
SUMMARY
The Regional District is the registered owner of Lot 4, Section 3, Township 8, ODYD, Plan KAP76941.
A restrictive covenant and statutory right-of-way were placed on the property by the City of Vernon
and Regional District on April 2yth, 1994. The registration of the statutory right-of-way and restrictive
covenant for parking allowed for the expansion of the recreation center onto Regional District
property, and satisfied the City of Vernon's parking requirements for the building (see Attachments
"A", "B" and "C").
DISCUSSION
The recent pool staff room expansion encroaches beyond the original statutory right-of-way registered
on April 2yth, 1994. This Statutory Right of Way agreement now must be modified to allow for the
building expansion to be properly represented on title.
In planning to meet City of Vernon parking regulations, the Regional District has acquired three
properties off 35 th Avenue, currently being rented, that will be used for future parking lot expansion.
Future parking lot expansion will be prioritized along with other capital projects and presented
accordingly for budget approval.

time the District of Coldstream was considering development options that may have impacted the
property, therefore it was deemed appropriate for the District of Coldstream to have authority over the
site. The Board of Directors, at their in camera meeting held March 21, 2012 passed the following
resolution:
That the agreement dated February 15, 2011 between the District of Goldstream and

Introduction
This is an Implementation Agreement that is to be signed for all service changes. The agreement outlines the objectives of the service
change and defines the scope of work to be completed .
Objectives and Deliverables
UBCO to meet the demand of its riders by reallocating resources from a little used trip to fill in the gap between 11am
11 am
1. To adjust #90 USCO
6 :00 pm trip was very
and 3pm where we have been receiving a number of requests. A review of the current ridership indicated that the 6:00
light so it has been suggested that we eliminate the 6:00 pm trip and move this to a 1:00 pm departure from downtown.
2. to implement a lower level of service during university holidays to better match the demand.
2.
Revenue Hours These service enhancements are forecasted to require no additional revenue hours of service
Fleet ConSiderations
Considerations These service enhancements will work within the existing fleet and not result in additional mileage.
Financial Considerations These service enhancements are estimated to not require an increase annually to the local share
of costs
Background
Since the inception of this service ridership has exceeded the available resources resulting in many people being unable to use the
service. In addition there have been many comments by users that the time between trips (11am to 3pm) forces people who have
classes ending early to rema
remain
in on campus for the 3pm bus. Typically
Typica lly the 3pm and most often the 4pm trips are totally full with riders left
at USCO.
UBCO. The 6pm trip is rather light in comparison . The suggestion from the RDNO is to eliminate the 6pm trip and reallocate that
resource
resou
rce to 3pm, this has been further endorsed by findings from Be
BC Transit Service Review dated November 2011 which noted th
this
is as
a priority.
Service Changes to be Implemented
1. Eliminating the 6:00
6 :00 pm trip and reallocating
realiocating this resource to a 1:00 pm departure from downtown.
2. Reducing service levels by 50% when University is not in full session however ensuring that the commuter
comm uter market is still adequately
serviced. This results in the following trips to be operated
operated,, leaving downtown Vernon at 7am, 8am, 4pm, 5pm.
Timeline
A timeline outlining the steps to be completed for implementing your Service Implementation Plan will be forwarded to you shortly. The
implementation is estimated to take 8 weeks after Board approval
approva l of this Implementation Agreement and could be started as early as
12120112. The time line considers only the Service Changes noted above.
12/20/12.
Significant alterations to the service changes outlined in this agreement or sign off not occurring by the expiry date could result in
delays or a need to re-initiate ~ new Implementation Agreement and timeline.

Bylaw 2565 – Zoning Text Amendment [Boundary Adjustment Subdivisions]
SHORTT, Jason R.
Jason R. Shortt provided background information regarding the reasoning for submitting a
zoning text amendment application for boundary adjustment subdivisions.
In response to an inquiry, the Committee was advised that Jason R. Shortt has approximately
three to five Boundary Adjustment applications per year within the RDNO that are affected by

adjustment subdivisions to be exempt from minimum lot frontage and minimum lot size
requirements.

per year total that are affected by the current zoning requirements. T he zoning text
amendments would not allow for an increase in the number of lots but for the shifting of lot lines.
It was noted that the proposed zoning text amendments will save money and t ime for the
RDNO, applicants and taxpayers overall.
