Client: Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen

Date: 2014-2016

EcoPlan led a larger project team that includes the Arlington Group on an update of the Official Community Plan for Electoral Area “D-1” in the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS). With a small and highly dispersed rural population, the project employed a range of engagement techniques to ensure the process remains community-driven. In addition to open houses (including one of the largest and most successful open houses held in the regional district), surveys, and online tools, engagement also included the establishment of a 12-member volunteer Citizens’ Committee.
