North Westside Long Term Solid Waste
Thursday May 11, 2006 from 7 to 9 PM
at Killiney Beach Community Hall
The Regional District of Central Okanagan invites the North Westside Communities
residents to an open house to discuss the issues of garbage disposal in our
communities. Residents can ask questions and give their input into the
management of solid waste for the North Westside Communities.
Transfer Station Petition

Lets talk trash community meeting May 11, 2006 at 7 PM
FYI - The North Westside Communities Association is trying to have the Regional
District locate one more transfer station at a local business willing to donate
land. It must be LaCasa. The North Westside Communities Association
told the Regional District to keep it a secret as to what local business is
willing to donate this land. We can get free crown land, so land should
not be an issue. Every subdivision would still have to drive a distance to
dump their garbage at the one new transfer station location at LaCasa though.
How do you think Estamont may feel about that? The price of garbage
disposal goes up for them and they don't get to take their garbage any closer.
The transfer station
petition stated that residents preferred to have smaller transfer stations at
each subdivision open 24 hours per day and 7 days per week and that is what residents signed the transfer station petition for.
If residents want smaller transfer stations located in each subdivision, then
I suggest they go to this meeting above with the Regional District "Lets Talk Trash", or they may
get stuck with only one new transfer station near no subdivision, and just at
LaCasa. The Regional District said they will be at Killiney Beach Hall May 11, 2006 to listen to what residents want regarding
the transfer station petition. I don't think the Regional District
believes the residents whom signed the transfer station petition though. I
heard a couple of Regional District members say there were only 80 or so residents that signed
the transfer station petition and that there are over 300 North Westside Communities Association
members. I wish we knew how many North Westside Communities Association
Members signed the petition though? I bet there may also be more than one
member of this Association per household as well. But do you think we will
ever know that information ... looks unlikely to me, as I have asked the Regional
District several times and also the NWCA once. The Regional District tells
me they don't have a NWCA membership list so they don't have that information,
and I don't see them trying to get that information either. I asked the
NWCA President for that information and said that they will give me the figures.
I am waiting to hear the verdict. The transfer station petition holds only
one signature per household. I feel that the residents want to contribute to the Community
Hall for instance and that is why they are members. If the NWCA members
knew what the North Westside Communities Association was up to, I don't think
Communities Association members would agree with everything the NWCA does,
especially the transfer station.
You have until May 19, 2006 to fill out the
Regional Districts Online Questionnaire regarding solid waste management for
the whole Regional District.

Engineering Committee Meeting Minutes – March 20, 2007
2. ENGINEERING SERVICES
d. Westshore Estates Utility Corridors
Item 2d) was discussed first as Westshore Estates’ residents John
Swallow and Lorraine Neal were in attendance.
Don Darling explained that over several years the Engineering Dept.
has been trying to resolve the issue of access over the Westshore
Estates utility corridors.
Recently residents did not support a maintenance function, and the
RDCO lawyer and insurance provider recommended that access remain
status quo, with signage being posted to the effect that the utility
corridors are used at the owners’ risk.
Don advised that Mr. Swallow has been using the corridor (Lot 177)
as his driveway and now a neighbouring property owner, Mr. Gaudette,
will be building 3 lots away from Mr. Swallow and will be using the
corridor (Lot 177) as access to his home. Mr. Swallow is concerned
re. the resulting traffic being so close to his home.
Board policy, which is not to prevent usage of the utility
corridors, was explained to Mr. Swallow and he is now requesting the
sole rights to Lot 177 through a right of way agreement, or by
expanding his property to include a portion of Lot 177, in order to
block or regulate access. The RDCO identified that the only viable
access to neighbouring properties could not be blocked, also that a
precedent could not be set in cost sharing for fencing.
Mr. Gaudette and Mr. Swallow have discussed various options but have
not been able to agree on a solution. Mr. Swallow and Ms. Neal
attended the Engineering Committee meeting in order to try and
resolve the issue.
Mr. Swallow advised he has researched the issue thoroughly and feels
he now has a house with no driveway, which would make selling his
house extremely difficult.
Discussion ensued re. fencing, separate access for the Gaudettes,
set backs, and cost sharing with Mr. Gaudette.
9:45 a.m. Mr. Swallow and Ms Neal left.
Engineering Committee Minutes – October 19, 2006
g) Westshore Estates Utility Corridors
Don advised that the review of the unauthorized use of the utility
corridors has been completed with the RDCO insurance providers and
lawyers, Lidstone, Young & Anderson.
recommended to post signs notifying users that the utility corridors
are not maintained and that residents are using the corridors at
their own risk. The estimated total cost is $7,580 which should be
paid out of the Westshore Water Utility’s yearly budget.
THAT the Regional Board authorizes the Engineering Services
Department to seek legal advice as to the correct wording for the
proposed notification signs;
AND FURTHER THAT the Engineering Services Department proceed with
having the signs prepared and posted at the entrance of each
Westshore Estates utility corridor;
AND FURTHER THAT the cost of preparing and posting the signs be paid
out of the Westshore Estates yearly budget.
Engineering Committee Minutes – July 13, 2006
b) Westshores Access Road
Hilary advised that the Regional District operates and maintains a
water utility in the Westshore Estates Subdivision. Water mains are
located within narrow strips of fee simple land owned by the
Regional District, instead of in a statutory right of way. Residents
are using the water utility land as access to their properties and
there is concern about liability and damage to the utility. Some
residents have suggested that the Regional District should maintain
There is no revenue currently in the budget to maintain the land. A
public meeting was held on July 5th, 2006 to determine what the
residents may be willing to pay for. It was estimated that
maintenance costs would be approximately $250/$275 per household per
year (if all property owners contributed, not just the benefiting
properties). The outcome of the meeting was that residents wanted
things left as they are.
° Hilary expressed concern re. liability and indicated that any new
construction should be required to register an easement (at a cost
of $400) over the access road to their property, and also suggested
that signs be put up to use at your own risk.
Residents have always been able to use the lanes, so legally now
they probably could not be stopped.
° Liability is a huge issue. Must get lawyer’s advice as “occupants’
liability” is very different from liability on dedicated roads.
Previously MOT would not agree to dedicating these lanes as roads.
It was suggested that MOT
be re-approached re. obtaining occupants permits and saving them
° Must deal with this now, as the risk will only become greater.
° Talk to lawyer first, but must work together with residents.
THAT Engineering Services staff look into establishing a strategy
for the Westshores area to develop a maintenance plan, in
partnership with the residents, subject to legal counsel first being
sought to determine the liability
AND FURTHER THAT a report be brought back to the next Engineering
THAT Engineering Services staff look into
registered easements for any
new building permits issued in the Westshore Estates

the water utility land as access to their properties and there
is concern about liability and damage to the utility. Residents
are also suggesting that the Regional District should maintain
this land. There is no budget to maintain the land so a
is being recommended to let the public decide what they are
willing to pay for. Don stated that the preliminary budget for
maintenance costs is approximately $250 per parcel per year, and
all property owners should contribute, not just the benefiting
Aaron suggested consulting with the North Westside Communities
Association on the recommendation and getting their support
before going to the Board. He reported that Harry Pospolita and
Ian Kilpatrick have a very successful track record with
community meetings and referendums.
Discussion ensued re. liability if the lanes were not
THAT the Engineering Services Department consult with the North
Westside Communities Association on conducting a referendum to
determine if there is sufficient support to establish a service
area for the maintenance of water utility land within the
Westshore Estates Water Utility service area;
