Site Context
The subject property is located in Electoral Area “D” on an undedicated portion of Bobbie Burns
Road approximately 6.5 kilometres from Trinity Valley Road. Bobbie Burns Road passes through
the property in a north-south direction dividing the property into two parts. A house and garage
are located on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road. The land on the west side of the road slopes
up from Bobbie Burns Road. On the east side of the road the property slopes down to Styx Creek
then up towards Bobbie Burns Mountain. The portion on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road is
sparsely treed while the eastside is also sparsely treed with some large tree clusters.
The subject and surrounding properties are zoned as Large Holding (L.H). As shown on the
attached ALR Boundaries Map and the orthophoto below, the majority of the subject property is
located within the ALR. A 9.65 ha portion located along the western boundary is not located within
the ALR. Portions of the surrounding properties are also within the ALR. The ALR portions of
the subject and surrounding properties are designated as Agricultural within the Electoral Areas
“D” and “E” Official Community Plan. The non-ALR portions of the subject property and properties
to the north and south are designated as Large Holding. The properties located to the west and
east are crown lands and are designated as Resource.
The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2007.

Agricultural Land Commission Application

The Proposal
The applicant proposes to subdivide the 64.75 ha subject property into two (2) lots along the
alignment of Bobbie Burns Road. One lot on the west side of Bobbie Burns Road would be 31.6
ha in size and a second lot on the east side of the road would be 31.3 ha. A 1.75 ha area would
be required for the dedication of Bobbie Burns Road. The applicant has indicated that the parcel
was partially logged in the mid 2000’s and, as it is severed by Bobbie Burns Road, agricultural
activities on the whole property are difficult to impossible. The applicant also indicates that
shallow bedrock, adverse topography, and soil conditions limit the property’s agricultural
capabilities.
Agricultural Capability of the Subject Property
The Canada Land Inventory agricultural capability classification system groups land into seven
classes according to the land’s potential and limitations for agricultural use depending on soil and
climate characteristics. As the class numbers increase from Class 1 to 7, the range of crops
decreases. Associated with each class is a subclass that identifies limitations or special
management practices needed to improve the soil. The classification usually gives land two
ratings: unimproved and improved. Unimproved ratings describe the land in its native condition.
Improved ratings indicate the land’s potential once management practices have been
implemented, such as irrigation, stone removal or drainage.
Class 1 land is capable of producing the very widest range of crops. Soil and climate conditions
are optimum, resulting in easy management. Class 2 land is capable of producing a wide range
of crops. Minor restrictions of soil or climate may reduce capability but pose no major difficulties
in management. Class 3 land is capable of producing a fairly wide range of crops under good
management practices. Soil and/or climate limitations are somewhat restrictive. Class 4 land is
capable of a restricted range of crops. Soil and climate conditions require special management
considerations. Class 5 land is capable of producing cultivated perennial forage crops and
specially adapted crops. Soil and/or climate conditions severely limit capability. Class 6 land is
considered to be important in its natural state as grazing land and cannot be cultivated due to soil
and/or climate limitations. Class 7 lands have no agricultural capabilities.
The Inventory rates the ALR portion of the subject property as 60% Class 4 and 40% Class 5 with
the improved rating being the same. The subclasses associated with these ratings are identified
as topography and stoniness. The non-ALR portion of the property is rated as Class 7. The
subclasses associated with this rating is identified as topography and consolidated bedrock.
OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN
The subject property is designated Large Holding and Agricultural in Schedule “B” of Electoral
Areas “D” and “E” Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2485. The following OCP Agricultural
policies are relevant to this application:
• Agricultural lands are designated on OCP map Schedules B, B1 & B2 and are within the ALR
and the Agricultural Land Commission Act will take precedence;
• Lands designated as Agricultural are intended to be used for agricultural purposes and
associated uses as allowed by the ALC and the Regional District. All uses and subdivision of
ALR land shall be in accordance with the ALC Act, Regulations, Orders and Policies;

Agricultural Land Commission Application

•
•
•
Page 4
The minimum parcel size for Agricultural lands shall be 30.5 ha. Large parcel sizes and
setbacks are encouraged and supported through the Zoning Bylaw regulations to minimize
the potential for land use conflicts and to support long term agricultural use consistent with
Agricultural Land Commission Act objectives;
Support the Agricultural Land Commission in its efforts to protect and enhance farmland.
Where land is in the ALR, minimum parcel sizes shall apply only when the land is:
o excluded from the ALR; or
o approved for subdivision within the ALR pursuant to the Agricultural Land Commission
Act, regulations thereto, or orders of the Commission; or
o exempted by the Agricultural Land Commission Act, regulations thereto, or orders of the
Commission;
Encourage strategies that will see large agricultural land holdings retained and parcels
consolidated and operated as single agricultural operations rather than broken up as
individual land tenures with multiple ownership.
ZONING BYLAW
The subject property is zoned Large Holding (L.H). The minimum lot size standard of the Large
Holding (L.H) zone is 30.5 ha. Uses permitted in the L.H zone include accessory farm sales, bed
and breakfast uses, boarding house uses, community care facilities, fruit and produce pickers’
cabins and work force housing units on lots 4 ha or larger, home occupations uses, medical
marihuana production facilities, packing houses, public parks and playgrounds, resource uses,
single and two family dwellings, secondary suites, veterinary clinics, wineries and cideries,
intensive and limited agricultural uses, ancillary dwellings, and manufactured homes.
The number of buildings allowed per lot in the L.H zone may not exceed:
1) one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home; and
2) for lands that are located within the ALR, additional single family dwellings shall not be
permitted unless the owner has first submitted an application to the ALC; and
3) one ancillary single family dwelling on land in and out of the ALR, subject to the dwelling not
exceeding a gross floor area of 75 m2 (807.3 ft2) exclusive of attached open carports and open
porches, shall not include a basement, shall not include habitable space in an attic, and shall
not be permitted on lots smaller than 2 ha (4.942 acres).
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
The Planning Department recommends that this application not be supported as it is inconsistent
with the Agricultural Policies of the OCP which:
• encourage strategies that will see large agricultural land holdings retained and parcels
consolidated and operated as single agricultural entities rather than broken up as individual
land tenures with multiple ownership; and
• support the Agricultural Land Commission in its efforts to protect and enhance farmland.
It is acknowledged that the agricultural capability of the ALR portion of the property (Classes 4
and 5) is somewhat limited. However, achieving and sustaining viable farm operations on two
smaller parcels with limited agricultural capability may pose an even greater challenge.

It is acknowledged that crossing Bobbie Burns with farm equipment and particularly livestock
would be required in order to farm the property as one unit. It is suggested that having to cross
the road should not restrict the ability to farm the property as one unit as traffic on the road is
limited.
Support for the application could however set a precedence that may lead other property owners
to believe that agricultural parcels within the area can be subdivided, which in turn could lead to
additional requests to subdivide within the ALR. The creation of smaller farm parcels in
agricultural areas can affect the land values by giving the impression that farm land can be used
for speculative non-agricultural development. This may result in inflation of the value of
agricultural land making it more difficult for farmers to purchase land.
SUMMARY:
The subject application proposes to subdivide a 64.75 ha property located at 655 Bobbie Burns
Road into two (2) lots, such that there would be one lot on each side of Bobbie Burns Road. As
the property is located in the Agricultural Land Reserve, approval under Section 21(2) of the
Agricultural Land Commission Act is required in order to subdivide the property as proposed.
The Planning Department recommends that the application not be supported as it appears
contrary to Official Community Plan policies which support the protection of farmland, including
the retention of large agricultural parcels and the consolidation and operation of agricultural
parcels as single agricultural entities rather than broken up as individual land tenures with
separate owners. The agricultural capability of the land is somewhat constrained, therefore
reducing the parcel size may further limit its viability as an independent farm entity.
REFERRALS
The application was referred for comments to the following:

Electoral Area Advisory Committee
Building Inspection Department
Ministry of Agriculture
Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee
At the Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee meeting held November 19, 2015 the
Committee reviewed this application and discussed:
• the new parcels would meet zoning minimum lot size standards; and
• no information provided on the soil capability.
The Committee passed the following resolution:
• That the subdivision Agricultural Land Commission application submitted by D. Thorpe c/o
Monashee Surveying [File No. 15-0533-D-ALR] for the property located at 665 Bobbie
Burns Road, Electoral Area “D” be supported and forwarded to the Agricultural Land
Commission.
7. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
The Ministry commented they have no objections, in principle, to this proposal. This approval,
in no way, constitutes approval of the future subdivision. A full review of all pertinent
legislation, regulations and policies will be conducted after receipt of a subdivision application.

REPORT
File No.: 3900.2710
TO:
Board of Directors
FROM:
Corporate Services
DATE:
March 9, 2016
SUBJECT:
Latecomer Interest Rate - Bylaw 2710
RECOMMENDATION 1:
That Latecomer Interest Rate Bylaw No. 2710, 2016 be given First, Second and Third readings.
RECOMMENDATION 2:
That Latecomer Interest Rate Bylaw No. 2710, 2016 be Adopted.
SUMMARY:
The latecomer allows for the expansion of infrastructure by providing a mechanism for a developer to
recover a portion of their initial investment. Latecomer Interest Rate Bylaw No. 1527, 1999 has been
in effect since 1999 with a rate of six (6) percent. A rate of 2% is recommended as it is more in line with
today's economy. Furthermore, it provides more of an incentive for property owners to connect prior to
the expiry of the 15 year agreement and make use of the services available. Too high of an interest
rate can result in property owners waiting until the latecomer agreement expires before connection. A
2% rate still provides developers with some inflation protection.
DISCUSSION:
Part 14 [Planning and Land Use Management] Division 11 [Subdivision and Development:
Requirements and Related Matters] Sections 507 [Requirements for excess or extended services] and
508 [Latecomer charges and cost recovery for excess or extended services] of the Local Government
Act provides that a local government may require that the owner of land that is to be subdivided or
developed provide excess or extended services, and, if the local government makes this requirement,
the local government must impose, as a condition of an owner connecting to or using the excess or
extended services, a charge related to the benefit of connecting to these excess or extended services.
Policy No. ENG 001 [Procedure for Processing Latecomer Agreements] which identifies the procedure
for the processing of latecomer agreements in the Regional District of North Okanagan was approved
by the Board of Directors on July 8, 2010.

FROM:
Stephen Banmen, General Manager Finance
DATE:

SUBJECT:
Bylaw 2713 – Regional District of North Okanagan 2016 Financial Plan
RECOMMENDATION:
That Regional District of North Okanagan 2016 Financial Plan Bylaw No. 2713, 2016 be given First,
Second and Third readings; and further,
That Regional District of North Okanagan 2016 Financial Plan Bylaw No. 2713, 2016 be Adopted.
SUMMARY:
The consolidated 2016 Financial Plan is $63.6 million, a decrease of $1.6 million from the $65.2 million
consolidated 2015 Financial Plan.
The 2016 operating budget is $43.2 million, an increase of $2.3 million from the $40.9 million operating
budget in 2015.
The 2016 capital budget is $20.4 million, a decrease of $3.9 million from the $24.3 million capital budget
in 2015.
The total tax requisition within the consolidated financial plan is $15.9 million. This represents an
increase of $288,000 (or 1.8%) from 2015.
DISCUSSION:
Section 374(1) of the Local Government Act provides that a regional district must have a financial plan
that is adopted annually, by bylaw, by March 31.
Various committees reviewed and made recommendations to the Board regarding the 2016 Financial
Plan. The proposed bylaw includes those recommendations.
The Committee of the Whole met on March 2nd to review the budget in its entirety and recommended
minor amendments for presentation to the Board at the March 23, 2016 meeting.

Since the March 2nd meeting, the final budget information has been received for the Sterile Insect
Release Program (810). The following amendments have been included in the proposed bylaw:
1. The tax requisition is unchanged from 2015 at about $294,000. The draft 2016 budget presented
on March 2nd assumed a 2% tax requisition increase (or $5,939) in the Sterile Insect Release
Program (810). The increase has been eliminated in the proposed bylaw.
2. The parcel tax applicable to certain orchards increased from $134,604 to $150,277 as a result
of increased acreage. The parcel tax rate of $139.26 per acre remains unchanged from 2015.

REPORT
File No.: 5801.04.060.2016
TO:
Greater Vernon Advisory Committee
FROM:
Parks, Recreation and Culture
DATE:
January 29, 2016
SUBJECT:
Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and Youth Project Grant - 2016
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, funding from the Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and
Youth project grant program be awarded as outlined in the report titled Greater Vernon Arts, Culture
and Youth Project Grant- 2016 and dated January 29, 2016.
BACKGROUND/HISTORY:
In 2012 the Board of Directors adopted policy GVPRC-004 Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and Youth
Project Grant Policy (Attachment "A"), which provides guidelines for a grant program for the purpose
of supporting arts, culture and/or youth projects, through the Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and
Culture function (060).
Each year the grant program is advertised in August, and applications are reviewed and brought
forward to the Committee following the finalization of the Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and
Culture budget.
DISCUSSION
Grant Evaluation Process
A grant evaluation rubric has been developed, and is included as Attachment "B". The Greater
Vernon Arts, Culture and Youth Grant Evaluation Rubric includes three areas of evaluation:
Excellence and Innovation; Impact; and Management.
Excellence and Innovation focuses on application clarity, support of funding objectives (encourage the
development of arts, culture and youth through project funding), project innovation and confidence in
project success. This area of evaluation is given a weight of 40% of the overall application grade.
Impact focuses on the accessibility of the project to the Greater Vernon community, multi-sector
content (arts/culture/youth), involvement of community partners and the sustainability/contribution of
the project. This area of evaluation is given a weight of 30% of the overall application grade.
Management focuses on the history and ability of the applicant organization(s) and fiscal stability.
This area of evaluation is given a weight of 30% of the overall application grade.

Grant Evaluation Results
A summary of the 2016 applicants has been included as Attachment "C", and the full applications are
available for review, upon request.
There were nine applications received by the deadline, of which five are eligible as per the program
guidelines outlined in the Policy. Two are ineligible because their application was for general
operating funding, which is prohibited through the RDNO Policy: GVPRC-003, where organizations
must be explicitly listed in the service establishment bylaw in order to receive operating funding.
The other two ineligible projects are parks/recreation capital projects and, although both projects may
offer a youth component, they have not been deemed appropriate for this funding opportunity. There
may be opportunities to support these projects through other means in the future, as follows:
1. Vernon Rowing and Dragon Boat Club - Dock repair and expansion
This project would see improvements to the existing dock owned by the Vernon Rowing
and Dragon Boat Club, which is located on property south of the recently purchased Crane
Road property (PIO 010-970-606). If the Club was unable to continue to operate on that
location, the Regional District could look at opportunities to support the activity on the
newly-purchased property. The dock proposed for construction on the new RDNO site
would not be suitable for use by this Club, being too small. This project did receive funding
through a discretionary grant from the City of Vernon.
2. Picnic Shelter at Paddlewheel Park
This project would see the construction of a picnic shelter on property on Okanagan Lake
that is owned by the Okanagan Landing and District Community Association, and leased
(for public use) by the Regional District (Paddlewheel Park). This project could be
considered in a future park planning process.
The eligible applications have been evaluated using the Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and Youth
Grant Evaluation Rubric, and the results are included as Attachment "D". Funding recommendations
have been made, but it is anticipated that the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee may choose
to make adjustments to these recommendations.
EXISTING POLICY:
RDNO Policy: GVPRC-004 Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and Youth Project Grant (Attachment "A")
FINANCIAL/BUDGETARY CONSIDERATIONS:
At a special budget meeting held on January 28, 2016, the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee
recommended to the Board of Directors that $66,000 to be approved in the 2016 Greater Vernon
Parks, Recreation and Culture (060) budget for the Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and Culture
Youth Project Grant. The intention of this funding is to support arts, culture and youth projects, with
the application and selection process outlined in the GVPRC-004 Greater Vernon Arts, Culture and
Youth Project Grant policy.
The total cost of the grant awards, as recommended, is $23, 100 leaving $42,900 unallocated in the
budget. The committee could choose to open a second intake, as there were groups that expressed
interest after the deadline. The remaining funding could also be used for unforeseen projects that
often come up mid-year, as was the case with the Vernon Public Art Gallery's - Pop-up Gallery.

2016 Greater Vernon Arts, Culture Youth Project Grant Summary
North Okanagan Community Concert Association
Project: Purchase of new, concert Grand Piano to be housed at VDPAC
This request is to support the purchase of a new grand piano, which would be housed at the Vernon and
District Performing Arts Centre. The current piano has served the community since 1953. Although the
current piano has been well-maintained, and rebuilt I refurbished several times, it is simply no longer
suitable for a concert hall like VDPAC. Therefore, NOCCA is purchasing and rebuilding a 30 year old
9 ft Hamburg Steinway concert grand piano and will take delivery in 2016. The cost of the new piano is
approximately $86,000, including complete rebuild, refinishing, deliver and voicing. Most of that is being
covered by NOCCA's piano fund that represents many years of savings. However, we are short
$10,000.
To help raise the funds, we are "selling" piano keys to music lovers in the community and we are asking
RDNO for a grant of $5,000. If, however, the RDNO would rather sponsor a key, they are being sold for
$100 each, or you can sponsor an actave (12 keys, including sharps and flats, for $1200. A large
graphic piano keyboard will be on display at VDPAC during the 2015/2016 season. It will illustrate each
community member supporting the piano fund by indicating their name on the key or keys that they
have selected.
Caetani Cultural Centre Society
Organizational Development
This project would allow the Gaetani Cultural Centre to do planning and resarch into moving our
heritage status forward, identifying possible project and operational funding sources during this
transitional period, gathering updated designs and quotes for the installation of a fire-suppression
system, developing sound fundraising strategies and, implementing a concrete business plan for
transitioning into a public heritatge site, with a stronger more community focused facility
accessand programming.
The ability to have a presentation space for community programming for audiences of up to 50 hinges
on a fire-suppression system for this 120 year old designated heritage house.

Project: Creating Monarch and Pollinator Habitat and Art Project
The objective of the project is to teach students about the importance of habitat, in particular native
species and pollinators. Along with the sustantial expansion of the existing garden on school grounds,
which provides habitat for butterflies and other pollinators, the kids participating in the program will make
paper or felted butterflies, mail them to Pacific Grove (mimicking the migration of the butterflies), and the
Museum will create an exhibit of these butterflies. This project encompasses a number of different

of the dock need to be replaced as they pose saftey hazards to participants. The dock space is
currently limiting program growth.
Greater Vernon Museum and Archives
Project: Silver Star Historic Landmark Plaques and Walking Tours
The purpose of the project is to create and install interpretive plaques at historic landmarks on Silver
Star Mountain. The plaques will become part of guided and self-guided walking tours on the Mountain.

Pond, Pinnacles Day Lodge, Cabin Colony, the first ski lifts and tow bars, etc.
Okanagan Landing and District Comm unity Association
Project: Picnic Shelter for Paddlewheel Park
This project will construct a picnic shelter in Paddlewheel Park for the use of the residents and visitors
in the area. There is currently no shelter in the park, and it is a very popular destination in the summer
season and the summer days are getting hotter each year. This park is well used by youth in the
community, in addition to being the location for summer camps with the Boys and Girls Club and
Greater Vernon Recreation Services.

Executive Summary
The development of the Greater Vernon Cultural Plan, 2016, adopted in March 2016, was a notable
achievement being the first adopted cultural plan for the Greater Vernon community. The plan
provides clarity and direction that will help to facilitate a coordinated effort in support of the cultural
health and development of the community.
In March 2014 the Regional District approved the terms of reference for the Greater Vernon Cultural
Plan Steering Team. A twenty-four person committee that was comprised of Regional District
Directors, community representatives, and municipal and Regional District staff, the Steering Team
was mandated to work alongside the political lead, being the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, on
the development of Greater Vernon’s long-term plan for culture.
The planning process was extensive; a multi-pronged approach to research, plan development and
community consultation was accomplished through a thorough review of local planning documents,
six Steering Team workshops, nine Greater Vernon Advisory Committee workshops, and eleven public
input opportunities. These in-person opportunities were supplemented with outreach through a
questionnaire that was made available in the Greater Vernon Leisure Guide and online.
Ensure intergovernmental and community
implementation of the cultural plan.
Support Greater Vernon arts and culture
projects.
Monitor and report on progress of cultural
plan implementation.
P la ce s & Sp ace s
Ensure the healthy use and condition of
existing cultural facilities.
Enable the development of new cultural
facilities.
Encourage a culturally vibrant and connected
public realm.
Promote natural areas as cultural assets.
Increase economic development through
cultural development.
Cultural Capacity
Leadership
The following are the strategic themes and key objectives that were distilled from the extensive
community input and outlined in this Culture Plan:
Support the health and development of
cultural not-for-profit organizations.
Support and encourage special events.
Celebrate and protect our cultural heritage.
Increase awareness of and participation in
local cultural activities.
Support youth engagement in culture.
Increase communication and collaboration
with Okanagan First Nations.
Support neighbourhood cultural projects.
Protect, support and encourage public art.
This plan provides clarity around roles and responsibilities, in addition to strategies that will support
the many community partners in working together toward their common vision of a culturally vital
and inspired community.

Culture in Greater Vernon is the interaction between the community’s values, atmosphere or feel,
education, creativity, and the cultural resources of it’s places and the people who live or have lived
there.
VALUES

Why Culture Matters
Attachment "A"
Culture and Quality of Life
Culture enriches people’s day-to-day lives, sometimes in intangible ways. Culture provides enjoyment
and appreciation of all creative endeavours, and through culture, the community shares its stories
and history, and is able to learn about itself and others. Culture includes the richness of knowledge
about an area’s social history, and the wonders of the natural world.
A successful community is one that is responsive to the needs of all its residents for the varied
experiences that go under the heading “culture.” This can include enjoying a live jazz performance
and participating in a public debate about books; glass-blowing at a community art centre and quiet
contemplation of a masterpiece in a gallery; dance classes for children and birding groups for seniors;
and so on.
Cultural spaces and places help foster the development of community identity and a pride of
place that not only attracts and retains residents, but also create interesting and engaging cultural
experiences for visitors to the community. Greater Vernon’s cultural spaces and places give it a
welcoming, charming and unique character that residents and visitors alike recognize as a place they
can create, perform, exhibit, learn, engage and be entertained.
Culture can also enhance quality of life through special cultural events, festivals, and performances,
of which Greater Vernon enjoys many over the course of the year. Like Greater Vernon’s cultural
places, these events provide opportunities for residents to gather socially and celebrate the culture
and diversity of the community by showcasing local cultural resources and artistic talent to both
residents and visitors.
“Greater Vernon’s culture is
vital, rich and alive – keep it up!”

The Economic Benefits of Culture
Attachment "A"
The economic contribution of artists, artisans, creators and the many other participants in the
emerging creative economy is very significant. When their impact on the retail sector, tourism,
culinary, hospitality, travel and many other key elements of the Greater Vernon economy are included,
the creative economy is a multi-million dollar part of the local economy that has significant and
rapid growth potential to add to local jobs and improve our prosperity as a major community in the
Okanagan region and province.
Today, a vibrant art and cultural sector is crucial to attracting and retaining a talented labor force,
creating an environment favourable to innovation, attracting investment and promoting tourism.
The rich and distinctive cultures of large cities such as Vancouver, Seattle, Calgary and Toronto, and
smaller communities such as Tofino, Whistler, Osoyoos and Kelowna are not so much evidence of
these communities’ economic prosperity as they are factors that give rise to it.
Municipalities that adopt culture as an economic engine have gained positive economic benefits
for their communities. Cultural industries create job growth, turn commonplace communities into
desired destinations, generate interconnections between arts and business, invigorate urban areas,
entice skilled workers, and create spin-off industries.
Greater Vernon’s economic base is diverse, including natural resources, agriculture, retail, military,
and manufacturing, and increasingly, creative and knowledge-based industry dependent on skilled
creative professionals.
Greater Vernon is well positioned to benefit from integrated cultural planning because the community
already offers a quality lifestyle that is the desire of many other cities and is becoming more and
more appealing. The community has a growing wealth of cultural assets that can leveraged to attract
creative people in many fields to live, work and invest in Greater Vernon.

The Historical Role of the Regional District in
Greater Vernon Cultural Services
The Regional District of North Okanagan has historically provided cultural services to the Greater
Vernon area, as set out by a service establishment bylaw (Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and
Culture Service Conversion and Service Establishment Bylaw No. 1648, 2000). This Bylaw defines the
scope of the Regional District’s role in providing cultural services by determining the types of cultural
services and organizations it will support, as well as identifying how these services and organizations
will be supported.
The cultural functions and/or facilities included in the Bylaw are: Museum; Art Gallery; Boys and Girls
Club; Arts Council; Caetani House; and Cultural grants; Literacy and Youth Initiatives Society of the
North Okanagan (Teen Junction). Over the years, the provision for “cultural grants” has allowed other
groups and services not specified within the bylaw to be eligible for funding.
The Regional District supports these organizations and/or the services provided by these organizations
through operating grants, as well as grants-in-aid. The Regional District also offers a project grants
program, which provides funding to non-profit organizations for a variety of types of projects,
including festivals, events, and capital improvements. Additionally, cultural Services in Greater Vernon
are supported by the equivalent of a 0.8 FTE (full-time employee), which is currently split between
three employees within the Regional District.
In 2015, the Regional District dedicated annual funding of roughly $1.65 million to support Greater
Vernon cultural facilities, organizations and activities, amounting to an investment of $27* per capita.
This per capita investment is in-line with other Okanagan communities, including its culturally-vital
neighbour, Kelowna.
*This calculation did not include debt payments associated with the Performing Arts Centre, or any value that
would be associated with the free use of the publicly-owned buildings, including tax exemption. It also does
not include the Vernon branch of the Okanagan Regional library, or any contribution that the City of Vernon
independently makes towards arts and culture (such as their contribution to the murals, or the Civic Sounds music
in the park). The calculation also excludes any cultural investment by the District of Coldstream, including the
recent acquisition of the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall, which is used primarily for cultural activities such as
dances and farmers markets.

Plan Process
The development process of the plan included three phases: audit and analysis; direction setting and
plan development.
Audit and Analysis
In order to be effective, a cultural plan needs to be positioned within the community context, and create links
between other local government planning document and decision-making processes. It also must encourage
the consideration of culture in future planning exercises. This is particularly important in the case of Greater
Vernon, where the provision of the community’s cultural services is through a sub-regional partnership at the
Regional District level; in this case, some aspects of supporting policy and services are the responsibility of the
other municipal partners, such as the City of Vernon or the District of Coldstream. The following image depicts
a few of the key planning documents that were reviewed as part of the development of this plan.

culture is considered in the development of future planning documents.

Plan Process
Attachment "A"
Greater Vernon Advisory Committee & Steering Team
Workshops
This plan was developed with ongoing input and over-sight from the
RDNO Cultural Services staff, the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee
(GVAC), and a project Steering Committee – a twenty-four member
body representing the cultural sector, business community, and the
RDNO. From June to September 2014, both these groups met five times
– roughly once a month. Through this process, the groups were able
to help identify key issues and opportunities, and develop a vision and
guiding principles, as well as draft policy directions.
Public Engagement
The Plan has also been informed by ongoing input from the public. Over
the course of the project, RDNO Community Development Coordinator
attended, along with members of the Steering Team, eleven separate
public events in Greater Vernon with a pop-up Cultural Plan display
and information booth and interactive feedback poster board. This
highly effective form of direct outreach helped raise the profile of
the Plan in the community and generated hundreds of individual
comments on cultural issues and opportunities. This direct outreach
was supplemented by a questionnaire which was placed in the Greater
Vernon Parks and Leisure Guide, and an online questionnaire which was
available on the RDNO website.
Development of implementation actions
SUNSHINE FEST EVENT
From the direction set by the Policy Directions document, the Steering
Team met again, along with several meetings of the Greater Vernon
Advisory Committee in order to determine the steps that would be
necessary to achieve each of the objectives. The Greater Vernon
Advisory Committee strongly focused on the Cultural Leadership and
Places and Spaces issues, while the Steering Team worked on the
Cultural Capacity issues.

March 23, 2016 - Item E.11
Attachment "A"
Issues and Opportunities
At the initial direction setting step in the planning process, the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee
(GVAC) and Steering Team identified the following key issues and opportunities that they wanted to
see addressed through the Cultural Plan:
1. Review the Regional District’s approach to cultural funding
Both the Regional District representatives, as well as members of the cultural community identified
issues with the mechanics of how the Regional District funds and supports cultural services. While
the current bylaws and policies do provide some direction on how cultural services should be funded,
they have also been interpreted in different ways over the years. This has led to a situation where
neither the Regional District nor the cultural community has the desired level of certainty over
which cultural organizations are eligible for certain types of funding, and at what funding levels and
expectations. The Plan provides recommendations that will give greater clarity for both the decisionmakers as well as potential funding applicants.
2. Establish priority facility needs
Steering Team and GVAC members noted the need for a clearer and criteria-based decision-making
process for establishing funding priorities for new cultural facilities. They identified that the process
should take into consideration the spacial needs of the community for cultural programming, the
existing spacial capacity that may be available, and the financial capacity of the community.
3. Provide greater stability in funding
For the most part, the RDNO provides funding on a year-to-year basis. Short term funding provides
maximum flexibility and reduces risk to the RDNO. On the other hand, longer term funding such
as through a multi-year funding agreement, provides the facility operator with greater security of
tenure, which can assist in obtaining private financing. It can also provide greater budgeting security
to the RDNO.
4. Improve community access to publicly-owned and funded resources
Many publicly funded facilities and spaces are not fully accessible to non-profit groups. The situation,
by comparison, is better with recreation facilities, which offer subsidized rates for youth participants,
for example. Also, onerous fees and insurance requirements can act as a barrier to small groups
looking to organize arts and cultural events in local parks.
5. Foster collaboration and partnerships
The Plan should identify ways to foster cultural collaboration. In the case of collaboration among
cultural groups, this might include making it easier for groups to share space, equipment, and
information. There are several good examples of collaboration between the cultural community and
government, but this could be broadened. The Plan should also facilitate collaboration between
business and cultural groups. Additionally, the Plan should explore the feasibility of collaborative
efforts to:
• Better incorporate the arts into the education system
• Provide opportunities for involvement in arts and culture as part of health / mental health
programs
• Include agricultural and environmental issues into the Plan
• Encourage greater ethnic diversity and First Nations inclusion in cultural events

6. Help make information related to culture more accessible
Greater Vernon needs a one-stop source of information on all things to do with culture: upcoming
events, programs, and cultural organizations. While there are many sources of information, no one
source is recognized by the community as being adequately comprehensive and up-to-date.
7. Promote and strengthen the local cultural scene to help attract new residents and
visitors to Greater Vernon
It is recognized that a community’s cultural amenities are an important determinant in attracting
new residents and visitors, and that attracting new residents and visitors is an important component
of an economic development strategy. The Plan should identify ways for Greater Vernon to promote
its existing cultural amenities in order to help grow the local tourism sector as well as attract new
residents.
8. Make Greater Vernon more culturally vibrant
Some participants, both on the Steering Team as well as the public, feel that Greater Vernon is
lacking in cultural vitality. The scope of what it means to improve the local cultural scene in general is
admittedly broad, but there are many potential initiatives and ideas that have been investigated and
included as part of the Plan.

Public perception of cultural needs and gaps in Greater Vernon was tested through the following two questions: “When it
comes to culture, Greater Vernon needs…” and “It would be great if Greater Vernon had…” The results of the responses to
these two questions shows that the Greater Vernon public would like to see a number of additional or improved cultural
facilities and/or districts, with the priorities being:
•
More venues for performing arts, especially live music
•
More cultural places and activities for youth
•
A new art gallery
•
A more vibrant downtown/public realm
•
A new/expanded museum
2. A desire for more special cultural events
The responses to the questions “When it comes to culture, Greater Vernon needs…” and “It would be great if
Greater Vernon had…” indicate that the public would like to see more public special events, such as festivals and live
performances.
3. An appreciation for Greater Vernon’s cultural assets
The questions: “The cultural facility I frequent most is…”, “I wish everyone in Greater Vernon knew about…”, and “The
best thing about Greater Vernon’s cultural scene is…” were posed in order to gauge the public’s preferences for particular
cultural facilities, programs and activities. These questions found that the public is greatly appreciative of Greater
Vernon’s overall variety and quality of culture, noting particularly its music scene, outdoor culture, and the Vernon and
District Performing Arts Centre.

Role and scope of the Regional District’s
Greater Vernon Cultural Services
On November 5, 2015, the Regional District endorsed the Greater Vernon Cultural Plan Policy
Directions document, which has guided the development of the strategies within this plan. Clarifying
the role that the Regional District plays in supporting culture in Greater Vernon was a key objective
identified within the Policy Directions document, and is necessary in order to develop and apply
consistent and transparent decision making processes, and establish roles and responsibilities within
the implementation plan.
As a result of workshops with the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, and in consideration of the
public consultation received throughout the planning process, the Regional District has agreed that
they will support culture in Greater Vernon in accordance with the following:
CONTEXT
It is recognized that “culture” has a wide horizon of activities, and that the Regional District works
within a finite capacity in providing support and venues to facilitate cultural activities.
ROLE
For the benefit of all Greater Vernon residents, the Regional District will support cultural development
and increase capacity in the cultural sector through the facilitation of administrative expertise,
coordination and knowledge, and the ownership and provision of facilities for the purposes of cultural
programming. The Regional District will not directly deliver cultural programming, but may provide
funding to support cultural projects within Greater Vernon, and funding to support operating costs
associated with delivering cultural programming within Regional District owned or licensed facilities.
In consideration of the above role, it was also necessary that the Regional District establish the scope
of that which it supports, and develop a clear and documented process with which to expand or
modify that scope.

• The Regional District will facilitate the planning and development of any new cultural facilities
that it will ultimately own or lease/license, in accordance with the New Facility Development
Process (shown on page 44)
SCOPE AMENDMENT PROCESS
The legislative framework and limitations of the cultural services provided by the Regional
District within Greater Vernon are provided within the Local Government Act and the service
establishment bylaw for the Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and Culture (currently Bylaw 1648).
Where the establishment bylaw does not allow for a particular situation involving cultural
facilities, services or grants, consideration to amending the scope of the service, and
subsequently the service establishment bylaw, would need to occur.
Process for scope amendment:
1. Consider the proposed scope amendment against the existing services provided by the
Regional District to ensure the addition would not create duplication, inconsistencies, or
conflicts with the existing services provided.
2. In the case of a new or replacement facility, the New Facility Development Process would
be initiated, and the Regional District must give approval to the project as per Step 6 in the
Process shown on page 44 of the “Greater Vernon Cultural Plan, 2016”.
3. Gather the necessary information on the proposed scope amendment, confirming all financial
and resource implications for the Regional District as a result of the proposed service scope
amendment.
4. With supporting information, the service scope amendment is considered by the Greater
Vernon Advisory Committee and the Board of Directors, and approval in principle is provided
contingent upon unanimous consent of all service participants, being the councils of the
participating municipalities and the Directors of the participating electoral areas that make up
the service.
5. The proposed service scope amendment is referred out to all service participants, with
supporting information, including but not limited to financial and resource implications, with
a request for consent to proceed with the service scope amendment.
UNANIMOUS CONSENT PROVIDED
UNANIMOUS CONSENT NOT PROVIDED
6. Provided all service participants consent to
proceed with the scope amendment, initiate the
steps to amend the service establishment bylaw
to reflect the change in scope.
6. If all service participants do not consent
to proceed with the scope amendment, the
service scope amendment does not proceed.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
March 23, 2016 - Item E.11
Attachment "A"
Within the timeline, start times are shown as:
• Short term (SHORT TERM) – Years 0-2
Being those strategies that must precede another strategy, that were identified as a high priority by GVAC and the Steering Team, or that are time-sensitive and critical.
• Medium term (MED TERM) – Years 3-6
Being those strategies that have actions that must first take place before they start, or that require additional research or consultation, or those that may not have the resources in place to
initiate immediately.
• On-going (ON-GOING)
Being those strategies that will need to carry on throughout the duration of the term of the
Cultural Plan, and perhaps beyond.
It is recognized that this Plan can not govern partner municipalities or not-for-profit organizations, but the
intention is to encourage the endorsement and involvement in the plan by all potential partners.
CULTURAL LEADERSHIP
A. Ensure intergovernmental and community implementation of the cultural plan.
A1. Establish an implementation advisory team (IAT)
Close collaboration between local government and the community helps make and implement
better plans. In recognition of this, it was seen as a high priority by both the GVAC and the
Steering team to continue the collaborative approach used in development of the Plan.
An important first action in support of this objective will be for the Regional District to
establish an Implementation Advisory Team (IAT), along with the necessary procedures to
guide the work of this group over the course of Plan implementation. Once the IAT has been
established, it will be able to work in collaboration with the Regional District, and other
appropriate partners, on implementing appropriate portions of the Cultural Plan.
The resources required by the IAT will be secured through external sources wherever possible,
or support requested as part of the Regional District budgeting process.
SHORT

A1. ACTION ITEMS
Develop terms of reference for an

Another key piece to the success of the plan will be the establishment of regular
communication and harmonization of planning documents that may impact cultural
development. Many of the implementation items within the plan will require cooperation
between the Regional District and its municipal partners, and it will be important to establish
mechanisms for this cooperation to take place. This is likely an area where the IAT can play a
key role.

As part of the cultural services provided through the Greater Vernon Parks, Recreation and
Culture Service (060), there has been an allocation of funding to support arts, culture or
youth focused projects in the Greater Vernon community through an annual grant process.
The application process and adjudication of these funds are supported by Regional District
policy. This funding can support cultural projects, including special events, one time projects
or small capital improvements, which allows the Regional District to provide seed money for
a new event to get established, such as it did for the Okanagan Military Tattoo, or provide
funding to enable cultural organizations to make smaller capital improvements to their
facilities.
There has been feedback through the cultural planning process that, although this program
is a valuable community asset there may be opportunity to make some changes that would
improve the program.

This is also supported in other existing public policy; for example, one of the goals in the
City of Vernon`s Economic Development Strategic Action Plan is to develop ``...a cultural
community with a strong sense of place.” (City of Vernon, 2012, pg 9).
Both the Regional District and the community will play important roles in bringing an
economic development perspective to the implementation of the Cultural Plan; however,
it is recommended that the Implementation Advisory Team take leadership of this action.
Members of the IAT, as representatives of the local cultural and business community, will be
well positioned to stay up-to-date on new and emerging economic development opportunities
as they arise. There is also opportunity for the IAT to work closely with and support
partners such as the City of Vernon`s Economic Department, the Chamber of Commerce,

the cultural offerings of the community through mechanisms like Tourism Vernon. Developing

Cultural Places and Spaces
Great places and spaces support and enhance Greater Vernon’s cultural vitality.
Greater Vernon is in an enviable position of having an assembly of cultural resources and facilities
that remain relevant, meaningful, and useful to the community. Many in the community feel that
Greater Vernon needs new or enhanced spaces for various arts and cultural purposes, including:
space for performing arts (especially music); more cultural facilities and activities for youth; a new
art gallery; and others. These community perceptions have been tested through a needs assessment
that was conducted as part of the Plan, with details included in the Greater Vernon Cultural Facilities
Discussion Paper, included in Volume 2 to this Plan. The assessment found that a number of existing
publicly-owned cultural facilities are not adequate for their intended purpose, and provided a list
of priorities for cultural infrastructure investment for the next ten years and beyond. The needs
assessment also recognized that most of Greater Vernon’s publicly-owned cultural infrastructure,
with the exception of the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre, is aging and will require regular
and significant maintenance and, in the case of the Vernon Public Art Gallery and the Greater Vernon
Museum and Archives, significant renovations or replacement.
L. Support the healthy use, condition and development of cultural facilities.
L1. Protect and maintain existing Regional District cultural facilities.
As part of their support for culture, the Regional District has agreed to own (freehold or
license) facilities that it will provide for the cultural purposes as listed in the scope of the
service. In order to ensure that these facilities service the community well into the future,
there must be a commitment to regular maintenance and long-term replacement planning.
SHORT

L1. ACTION ITEMS
Establish agreements between the Regional
District and those organizations occupying
Regional District cultural facilities, outlining roles
and responsibilities for facility maintenance,

components of the building (i.e. the building envelope); subject to building
assessments and agreements with building owners regarding pre-existing
conditions.
• will set aside an annual budget allocation for capital funding to be used for
facility replacement items, such as mechanical, electrical, plumbing and
flooring.
• may provide funding to offset building occupancy costs associated with the
facility, including utilities; and,
• will, at its own expense, be responsible for maintaining property insurance,
except for contents insurance, for Regional District owned and licensed
facilities.
The occupant not-for-profit organization will:
• be responsible for the operation and programming of the facility in
accordance with the guidelines and expectations outlined in a multi-year
operating and management agreement; and
• be responsible for maintaining the interior of the facility, including repair
and replacement required due to regular wear and tear,
with funding responsibilities to be negotiated as part of each operating and
management agreement.
L2. Maximize the community benefit and value of Regional District cultural facilities.
As the cultural facilities provided by the Regional District are for the benefit of the
community, it should be ensured that all reasonable steps are taken to maximize the use
of the facilities, and that the use of the facilities is appropriate and adheres to guidelines
outlined by the Regional District.

TO:
Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee
FROM:
Planning Department
DATE:
February 1, 2016
SUBJECT:
Regional Agricultural Plan- Implementation
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, the proposed priority implementation items of the
Regional Agricultural Plan (Actions 4.1, 3.6, 1.3 and 6.13) be endorsed and incorporated into the 2016
Regional Planning work plan.
DISCUSSION:
The Regional Agricultural Plan (RAP) was endorsed by the Board of Directors on November 4, 2015.
The Board passed the following resolution:
That the Regional Agricultural Plan be endorsed; and further,
That funding opportunities and mechanisms be explored for plan implementation and a work plan be
developed for 2016.
In order to carry out work plan development and identification of funding opportunities staff consulted
with the Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee (RAAC) to identify their top four priority projects and
preferred implementation approach for 2016. On November 19, 2015 the RAAC passed a resolution
recommending to the Board of Directors that they become stewards of the plan (Option B of the
Implementation Strategy). The consultant highlighted the benefits of this implementation approach
including: a good level of engagement; the skill set of RAAC members is diverse; and there will be
strong local knowledge provided on a continual basis. It was also noted that networking and
connections within the agricultural community can easily be made ensuring that implementation meets
the needs of local farmers and producers. On December 9, 2015 the Board of Directors supported the
resolution from the RAAC in which RAAC becomes the stewards of the RAP and oversee its
implementation.
The RAP contains 105 strategies and policies that will support and enhance the economic sustainability
and resilience of the agricultural industry. The RAAC narrowed down their top four priorities for 2016
based on resource requirements, funding and time frame. The priority projects are highlighted in Table
1.

Staff have reviewed the current Regional Planning (031) budget and based on the four priority projects
that have been identified for 2016, it is anticipated that the proposed work and associated costs can be
completed in-house. RAP implementation has been allocated approximately 0.15 FTE (230 hrs) of the
Regional Planning Projects Manager’s position. It is important to note that funding for projects which
require consultants would need to be sourced as the current Regional Planning (031) budget is fully
allocated for consultant services in 2016. The Regional Planning Projects Manager can explore funding
opportunities as needed and will continue to work with the RAAC on identifying and securing grants for
future implementation projects.

SUBJECT:
Transfer of Operating Reserve Funds for Cemetery and Animal Control
RECOMMENDATION:
That the report ‘Transfer of Operating Reserve Funds for Cemetery and Animal Control’ dated March
1, 2016 be received for information and direction.
SUMMARY:
As reference in Attachment ‘A’, at the February 19, 2016 budget meeting of the Enderby and District
Services Commission, the following resolution was carried:
“…AND THAT the Commission request the Regional District of North Okanagan transfer the
operating reserve funds for Cemetery and Animal Control to the City of Enderby.”
Based upon preliminary estimates for December 31, 2015, the Regional District of North Okanagan
holds $24,356 in the Animal Control function and $55,756 for the Cemetery.
DISCUSSION:
In 2011, the RDNO adopted bylaws 2446, “Fortune Animal Control Extended Service Amendment
Bylaw No. 2446, 2010” and 2447 “Enderby and District Cemetery Local Service Establishment
Amendment Bylaw No. 2447, 2010” whereby the City of Enderby was removed as a participant from
these services. Electoral Area ‘F’ is the sole remaining participant of these services. The current role
of the Animal Control (Fortune) and Cemetery (Enderby and District) services is to requisition Area ‘F’
residents and provide an annual operating grant to the City of Enderby.
The RDNO does not have any assets or liabilities associated with these services.

DATE:

SUBJECT:
Water Supply Agreement - Gunter-Ellison Road Water Local Service Area
RECOMMENDATION:
That the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) be authorized to enter into a water supply,
distribution and billing agreement with the City of Enderby, as outlined in the report titled "Water Supply
Agreement - Gunter-Ellison Road Water Local Service Area" and dated March 8, 2016.
BACKGROUND/HISTORY:
As part of ongoing operation of the Gunter-Ellison Road Water Local Service Area, the existing
agreement with the City of Enderby has been updated to reflect current practice and to make provision
for the City of Enderby to invoice Gunter-Ellison customers directly for water consumption and
miscellaneous service fees.
DISCUSSION:
The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) established a local service for the supply, conveyance
and distribution of water to the Gunter-Ellison Road area by bylaw: "Gunter-Ellison Road Water Local
Service Establishment Bylaw No. 1600, 2000"within Electoral Area "F". The City of Enderby operates
the water system under the current agreement and in the past the RDNO recovered the operation and
maintenance cost through annual flat rates established by bylaw. In 2015, the City of Enderby installed
water meters for all its customers and currently invoices them through a combination of a base fee and
water use based on metered consumption. In 2015, the RDNO arranged to have all the Gunter-Ellison
customers' water meters upgraded to allow the City of Enderby to read these meters electronically.
To ensure the Gunter-Ellison users pay their fair share that is equal to the City of Enderby customers,
we have negotiated an agreement with the City of Enderby to allow the City to bill the Gunter-Ellison
properties directly in accordance with their bylaw fees. To reflect this change, the updated Water Supply
Agreement - Gunter-Ellison Road Water Local Service Area is now before you for consideration and
authorization.

Sovereign Lake Nordic Club: AED Support Request
Wednesday, March 16, 2016 2:44:52 PM
Hello Dalvir,
Sovereign Lake Nordic Club has made a request to the Public Access to Defibrillation
Program (PAD) to attain a secondary AED unit that will be used by our trained first team in
the event of a cardiac arrest at SLNC. As a requirement of the application form we must gain
the support of a community official. If you are able to create a letter of support from the City that would be greatly appreciated. If
you are unable to do so would it be possible to forward this request to one of your peers? As we all know Vernon has a very high percentage of people over 60 years of age. As a result,
the opportunity for heart attacks significantly increases. Here are some user stats for you to ponder.
Club Membership: 1700
Annually Visitors: 46000
Percentage of Members over 50: 74%
Sovereign Lake is undergoing a First Aid Review and we are reinvesting in our safety
programs for the 2016/17 ski season with the addition of a new quad, new spine board and an
upgraded Transportation Sled (amounting to over $35,000 in updated safety expenses).
Please consider supporting this project. Kindly, City of Vernon Disclaimer: This transmission (including any attachments) may contain
confidential information, privileged material (including material protected by the FOI act or
other applicable privileges), or constitute non-public information. Any use of this information
by anyone other than the intended recipient is prohibited. If you have received this
