Interview between North Westside Road Communities Association Vice President Michelle Carson (our Directors wife) and a reporter over power pole on Killiney Beach

Click this Windows Media Audio icon for help with audio files Power Pole - 1 rm/phone/Nov. 1/16

The location of a controversial power pole and guy wire on a portion of Killiney Beach below the high water mark remains a bur in the side of the North Westside Community Association.

They have requested it's re-location since it was erected in January 2014.

The Regional District Central Okanagan has refused and now tenure has been granted the pole, meaning it may never be moved.

Michelle Carson, Vice-President of the Community Association, feels they have run out of options other than taking the District to court.


:16 sec. "every step of the way."

Bruce Smith from the regional district says they don't think the pole needs to be moved, but because the concerns have been raised again, he says staff is reviewing the site, and getting a cost estimate on if it was moved.

The fight over re-locating a controversial power pole and guy wire owned by the Central Okanagan Regional District on a portion of Killiney Beach might end up in the courts.

Ever since it was erected in 2014, local residents and the North Westside Community Association have argued it needs to be moved for safety reasons and because it is below the high water mark.

CORD has refused and Association Vice-President Michelle Carson says when Andy Otter with the Ministry of Forest and Lands in Kamloops granted it tenure, it meant the pole became unmovable unless a judge orders it.

:15 sec. "would be a court."

Bruce Smith from the regional district doesnt think it needs to end up in court.

He says due to the new concerns, CORD staff are reviewing the issue, and getting a cost estimate on possibly moving the pole.

The North Westside Community Association's two-year battle with the Central Okanagan Regional District over a request to re-locate a power pole on a portion of Killiney Beach might end up in legal actions.

The pole was installed in January of 2014 below the high water mark and residents demanded it and the guy wire be relocated immediately.

CORD refused and ended up getting tenure for the post through the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources.

Association Vice President Michelle Carson says suing to have it moved is a last resort.
:17 sec. "discussed that option."

Bruce Smith from the regional district says they don't think the pole needs to be moved, but because the concerns have been raised again, he says staff is reviewing the site, and getting a cost estimate on possibly moving it.

.pdf icon October 26, 2015 Highlights of the Regional District of Central Okanagan Regular Board Meeting

Wildfire Prevention Initiative Funding
The Regional Board has adopted a resolution supporting an application to the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) for grants to support two wildfire prevention projects. The first project would involve fuel modification treatment on just over 7.5-hectares in Mill Creek Regional Park. The second fuel modification project would involve just over five hectares in Black Mountain / Sntsk‘il’ntən Regional Park. Since the inception of the funding program, the Regional District has received more than one million dollars for a variety of fuel modification projects including creation of a region-wide Community Wildfire Protection Plan and Operational Wildfire Protection Plan for Regional Parks.

Executive Summary:
The Strategic wildfire Prevention Initiative is a funding program administered by UBCM that supports communities to mitigate risk from wildfire in the wildland urban interface. The current SWPI program provides 90% of funding for operational treatments.
Parks Services has submitted two applications for wildfire fuel reduction treatments in regional parks for the October 2015 intake. The Mill Creek application requests grant funding of $64,638.00 for treatment of 7.56 ha. The Black Mountain / Sntsk'il'nten application requests grant funding of $73,305.00 for treatment of 5.43 ha.

RECOMMENDATION:

8.2 Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative - Support for Projects (All Directors Weighted Vote)

Staff report dated October 19, 2015 outlined the UBCM Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative grant applications for funding of operational fuel management treatments in Mill Creek and Black Mountain/Sntsk'i1'nten Regional Parks.

The question was raised whether grant funds can be applied to community parks such as Killiney Beach Park. It was noted that UBCM would likely not support funding for small community parks. Of note, staff worked with WFN when they were doing fire mitigation work on adjacent lands in Westshore. There is no government grant funding for private lands. Staff will continue to review operational needs in the community parks.

OPHUS/BAKER
THAT the Regional Board support the October 2015 UBCM Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative applications for funding of operational fuel management treatments in Mill Creek and Black Mountain/Sntsk'il'nten Regional Parks including planned activities and overall grant management for these forest fuel reduction treatments;
AND FURTHER THAT the Regional Board continues to support future RDCO applications to the UBCM Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative which include planned activities and overall grant management for both forest fuel reduction
prescriptions and onsite operational fuel treatments in regional parks in accordance with the 2015-2019 Financial Plan.

9. DIRECTOR ITEMS

a) Director Carson asked when staff will be responding to the issue of houseboats moored along the shores of Central Okanagan West. Staff is working on a report to bring to the Board. He also raised other electoral area questions regarding specific properties and was asked to speak to the CAO. The question was raised what the protocol is for electoral area directors to bring issues forward at a Board meeting. The CAO will meet with Director Carson to review the issues he has raised.

b) Director Baker noted that there has been vandalism at the safe harbour in Lake Country. Staff is repairing the damage - it is sad that irresponsible citizens damage public property at a cost to all taxpayers.

SUBJECT: Quarterly Program Measures Report, Year to Date June 30, 2010

*This is only a snippet of the 8 pages*

The following are some of the highlights for the year from the Quarterly Report, but are certainly not all inclusive. We do recommend that the report and each program be reviewed, particularly with respect to "Department Initiative Status Reports", the "Summary of Year to Date Results", and Project Updates for the various programs. There are too many items too be covered in this summary, and everyone's level of interest in the various programs and departments varies.

Executive Summary:

142 - Regional Parks (Page 105): Walk BC BCPRA Grant for $4,000 resulted in the successful Tracks Walking Club program in Mission Creek Regional Park. In March, UBCM contributed $379,425 for Regional Parks Operational Fuel Management Treatments 2009. NRCAN grant of $7,500 awarded for the final Operational Wildfire Protection Plan that has been received by the Regional Board. The Region Wide Community Wildfire Prevention Plan is also finalized and approved by the Regional Board. Community Adjustment Fund ~ Job Opportunity Program grant of $250,000 secured for regional park forest fuel modification work. Habitat Conservation Trust Fund application for support funding to complete sensitive ecosystem inventory of regional parks not awarded. Project is to commence with funding from RDCO. Mission Creek Greenway Scenic Canyon Trail ~ restoration received $42,500 under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program to upgrade a portion of the trail by widening, resurfacing and installing wooden stairs to reduce erosion and improve bank stabilization along a steep portion of the trail. Mission Creek Greenway Phase II Pinch Point detailed design and environmental assessment are near completion. Tender documents for the proposed tunnel are being prepared. Mission Creek Greenway Phase II Security Residence Occupancy Permit has been issued. Closure of the Mission Creek Greenway is scheduled for June 1 to approximately October 1 to accommodate the replacement of the Gordon Drive bridge. During May & June, unbudgeted staff resources were allocated to the pesticide applications for the Douglas Fir Tussock Moth organic pesticide treatment project in Trepanier Valley, Coyote Ridge and Upper Ellison areas. Hazard tree removals were completed in six Regional Parks including Mission Creek, Kalamoir, Coldham, Kopje, Glen Canyon, and Gellatly Heritage due to the Mountain Pine Beetle. NRCAN funding granted in the amount of $97,000. Titles to the Gellatly Nut Farm and Gellatly Heritage Regional Parks will remain vested in the name of RDCO. Official opening of the new playground structure at Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park occurred June 20,2010. A temporary repair has been completed to enable recreational boaters to utilize the popular launch at the Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour prior to the launch structure replacement. Western Screech Owl Stewardship Agreement has been signed by the Ministry of Environment to protect the endangered Western Screech Owl and its habitat within several Regional Parks. The EECO Centre had over 12,500 visitors. The "Hunters in the Sky: Raptors of the Okanagan" exhibit received many comments and many groups toured through the "In the Line of Fire" exhibit. The preschool story time was well attended and the school education program "Owls in the Classroom" was very successful. Spring Break camps included programs on botany and raptors, with maximum enrolment. Success was also met with the "Go Fish", "Tracks Walking" and "Take a Hike" Programs. The website had 3,030 views of the Regional Parks Guide. Fleet changes included the sale of the 1995 John Deere Gator to Dog Control and the purchase of a 2006 Mazda pickup from Dog Control. Three vehicles are scheduled for sale at auction in addition to a trailer and a beach cleaner / sand sifter.

143 - Westside Community Parks (Page 109): UBCM is providing a $2,000 grant for an educational and information kiosk at the trailhead for the Trepanier Greenway. The Regional Board supports a proposed Wildfire Protection Fuel Modification Project by the Okanagan Indian Band as the area surrounding the Westshore subdivision, including the new Westshore Estates Community Park, is considered a high priority for treatment in order to reduce potential fire threats. Meetings completed with North Westside Community Association regarding proposed recreational pier project at Killiney Beach. Preferred solution is to target swim area markers instead of pier project. Operational maintenance contract implemented for Central Okanagan West Community Parks located north and inclusive of Fintry Parks. The Statutory Right-of-Way survey for Jack Creek Linear Trail has been completed.

144 - Eastside Community Parks (Page 112): UBCM Tourism Grant funding of $4,500 targeted for implementation of a "Welcome to Joe Rich" highway sign. Aerial pesticide applications for the Tussock Moth Spray Program were completed over the upper Ellison Area. In collaboration with Ministry of Forests and Range staff, COE community parks are being monitored but not treated for Douglas Fir Tussock Moth or Spruce Budworm due to limited outbreak conditions with direct effect on RDCO parks.

Highlights of the Regional Board Meeting – April 8, 2010

Water Systems Review Contract
The Regional Board has approved a contract with Associated Engineering B.C. Limited for a review of three water system utilities. The firm’s bid of $44,700 plus GST scored the highest of four qualified proposals received by the Regional District. The review will assess the infrastructure needs of the Killiney Beach, Westshore and Falconridge water systems for the next 20 years. It will also recommend user and maintenance fee financing strategies in order to manage growth and associated infrastructure requirements for each water system.

Regional Community Wildfire Protection Plan
The Regional Board has received a final draft of the Regional Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). The Plan, prepared by Blackwell and Associates, outlines potential risks of interface fire throughout the region and recommends mitigation methods and costs of treating areas to improve community safety. While most of the land requiring action adjacent to interface communities is Crown land, many undeveloped private parcels would also require mitigation. The report also recommends education efforts for private landowners encouraging them to reduce potential fire risks on their properties. It is estimated possible Crown land mitigation efforts could cost over $20 million with a potential annual $3.3 million available in the Central Okanagan region from senior government funding sources and local municipal and regional district contributions. The report and supporting information will be provided to local municipal members for consideration. An Electoral Area Director representative and Westbank First Nation official will be invited to participate with the Regional District Sustainability Steering Committee which includes the Board Chair and Mayors of Kelowna, Lake Country, Peachland and West Kelowna to provide political input regarding the process.

Regional Parks Wildfire Protection Plan
The Regional Board has received an Operational Wildfire Protection Plan (OWPP) for the Regional Park system. Blackwell and Associates prepared this plan specifically identifying wildfire risks for each park, setting priorities for those adjacent to urban interface areas and recommending options for managing fire fuel treatments on approximately 768 hectares of land within the Regional Parks. The estimated cost of conducting all fire treatments in the park system is $8 million. As potential funds from other government sources and local governments in the regional district could possibly reach $3.3 million a year for all Central Okanagan Community Wildfire Protection programs, the Board has been asked to consider providing approximately 20% of that toward fuel management and mitigation in Regional Parks. Regional District staff will implement OWPP recommendations in conjunction with the development and approvals in future Parks Services budgets.

Provincial Tussock Moth Spray Program
The Regional Board has approved participation in a proposed Ministry of Forests and Range aerial spray program against an insect pest affecting Crown forest and four Regional Parks. In order to combat the Douglas fir Tussock Moth, which can adversely affect the health of people, as well as dogs and horses, the Ministry’s Forest Health Program will apply biological controls by helicopter to control the insect pest in Coldham and Trepanier Creek Greenway Regional Parks in the Trepanier Valley and in Mill Creek and Stephen’s Coyote Ridge Regional Parks. Parks Services staff will work with the Ministry on coordination of the spray program in the affected Regional Parks and will carry out appropriate park closures and public notification efforts through a combination of advertising, news releases and the RDCO website, including contact with residents living in neighbourhoods adjacent to these parks. Information and links about the Tussock Moth is available on the Regional District website (What’s New).

Mt. Boucherie Regional Park Ownership
The Regional Board has agreed in principle to begin discussions regarding a possible transfer of ownership for Mount Boucherie Regional Park to the District of West Kelowna. The Board agreed that a covenant on any transferred title be included to ensure the land remains in park use. The Board also authorizes Regional District staff to discuss the details of how the parkland asset would be maintained and operated with West Kelowna staff and provide a future report for Board consideration before any final decision is made on a transfer of ownership title. Further Board discussion about the ownership status of Gellatly Heritage and Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Parks as requested by the District of West Kelowna, has been deferred to the next meeting.

Killiney Beach Park

The North Westside Communities Association has negotiated with the Regional District of Central Okanagan to extend the dock and add finger slips for day use to help accommodate those who use the park.

The toilets in the park are expected to be changed over to a holding tank/pump out system with a company hired for maintenance.

March 6, 2006 Westside Issues Committee Meeting Minutes
North Westside Communities Association

The Association had two items to discuss with the Committee

  1. Parks - John Leesing addressed the Committee and noted that there was a desire in the Community to create a Children's playground, which would be in the name of the Communities Association.  However, a capital contribution in the amount of $10,000.00 is requested from the Regional District.  In addition, as well as operating funds for the playground ($2,000), the community felt that $35,000 needed to be spent on Killiney Beach Park.

Someone mentioned that the boat launch is not long enough and that when boats go in the water, the boat trailer goes off the end of the launch and that vehicles have a hard time to pull their boat out.
