*Note* This is only a snippet, please click link above for entire content

May 14, 2015

To: Gail Given, Chair, Regional District Board of Directors, Central Okanagan
Wayne Carson, Regional Director, Central Okanagan West,

This letter is intended to bring to your attention a number of concerns that directly impact our community. The role of the North Westside Community Association is "Working with our members and our local government partners to provide services built by the community for the community." In this capacity, it Is our mandate to provide you with a list of community concerns in the expectation that you will forward them to Central Okanagan Regional District management with a directive to resolve them to the satisfaction of the community.

Our first issue is in regard to the new signs that have been placed on our Killiney Beach Fire Hall, the Shorts Creek Fire Hall, and the Fire Boat House.  The KB Fire Hall was built in large part by community monies and volunteer labor, with financial input from the RDCO for the final phases; the Shorts Creek Fire Hall was built with monies received through Ridgeview Developments and the labor of community volunteers; the Fire Boat House was built With partial funding from the community. The new signs featuring "Central Okanagan Regional District" with minimal acknowledgement of the participating community are misleading and an injustice to all those individuals who contributed to the building of these community assets. The Regional District must remove these signs Immediately and replace them with signs that properly acknowledge that these are community assets, and represent the strong sense of volunteerism that exists in Central Okanagan West. As an option, should the RDCO wish to purchase these buildings to make them true RDCO assets, then the proper steps must be taken.

The second issue is in regard to the condition of two of our community parks in the North-West area. At Killiney Beach the beach road is narrow, and covered with potholes which get larger and more numerous every year.
This road was last maintained approximately 10 years ago. The dust raised by passing vehicles is a major health
concern; during the summer, when the beach is heavily used by local residents and tourists daily, the dust levels are a constant irritant, making the experience of enjoying the beach or trying to picnic extremely difficult. In addition, hydro pole situated by the Fire Boat House simply doesn't belong on the beach. The BC Ministry of Environment informed the community over three months ago that the pole was to be removed, but to date nothing has happened. The taxes assessed in the Central Okanagan West for parks raise a substantial amount of money annually, so it is not unnatural that we feel that we should be receiving more Investment in local parks other than the basics of garbage disposal and some weeding. The community, through a Community Advisory Committee for Parks, submitted a list of projects to the RDCO prior to the budget process this spring, and yet the only item that appeared from that list in the 2015/2016 budget was an electrical hook-up for Westshores Community Park, something that was promised would be installed almost three years ago. There is no water fountain in Westshores Community Park, but there is a bright, shiny plaque that lauds the contributions of various levels of governments to the building of the park but omits the names of the community members who were the driving force behind the creation of the park.  There was no consultation with the community on the plaque or its' placement, and indeed it is situated in a location that could be dangerous to children running on the main grassy area. One more example of the blatant disregard of the RDCO for the contributions of the community to what the RDCO considers "their" assets.

Our third issue is the amount of $3,200 we are being charged for servicing the tax monies received for the Killiney Beach Community Hall. The involvement of the RDCO is minimal, consisting mainly of cutting one cheque each April for the tax revenues, reviewing the annual 5 year budget prior to the RDCO budgetary process each fall, and reviewing the annual financial stateme.nt at the end ofthe fiscal year. Our community voted for an additional assessment to be added to each property tax bill in order to support the general maintenance and capital investment for the community hall service area, not to add more tax dollars to the coffers of the RDCO.
If there is a reason for us to be charged what amounts to approximately 15% of the total tax monies collected, (and we have been told represents .01 of a person year), we require a complete accounting of where this money was spent, and a justification for Withholding these monies up front. If this accounting Is not forthcoming, the withheld amount is to be forwarded to the Community Association within a month of this letter.

We expect full accountability from the ROCO for the expenditures made with Central Okanagan West tax monies. We will be submitting a request to the Provincial Government for an independent forensic audit on where our communities' tax monies are being spent. We have carefully reviewed the Regional District Central Okanagan's 2015 Budget and Financial Plan (General Revenue Fund), and we suspect that our tax dollars are being disproportionately expended out of our local service area. It is very clear to us that there is a serious lack of local governance. The single voice of our elected representative is silenced by the majority on council, particularly when voting on issues that are strictly local to our area. The community has no say, and Is unable to exert any Influence on how our tax monies are being spent or on how our communities are being developed and maintained. The gross Increase in our local water bills over the past two years, and the lack of information from the RDCO on expenditures and future plans is a prime example of lack of consultation with the community on issues that affect all of us. Lack of community input prior to decisions for major expenditures is not acceptable.

Director Carson, you have been elected to represent our community, and we are cognizant of your desire to represent us and our concerns to the Board of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan and the staff of the RDCO. A community meeting is, organized by the Board of the North Westside Community Association is planned at the Killiney Beach Community Hall on June 4, 2015 at 7 pm. We request that you join us at this meeting to answer our questions and provide feedback on our issues.

Thank you for your support of the Central Okanagan West and the North Westside Communities specifically.

Westside debates tax for hall
Vernon Morning Star - By Richard Rolke - July 10, 2011

North Westside Road residents could see taxes climb to support a community asset.

The North Westside Communities Association is proposing a November referendum on a service area tax, with funds going to maintenance and capital needs at the community hall on Udell Road.

“At this point, we are just having general discussions about the proposal,” said president Val Trevis.

The concept will be discussed at the association’s annual general meeting Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the hall.

Based on the tone of that discussion, the association may decide to ask the Regional District of Central Okanagan to proceed with a referendum.

The hall is owned and operated by the association.

“Funding for the hall comes solely from memberships in the association, rentals and the occasional grants-in-aid (from RDCO),” said Trevis.

“If it’s just based on membership, eventually we could run out of money.”

Trevis says the service area tax would provide sufficient resources to operate the hall while also planning for future capital demands.

“We want to maintain ownership and operation within the community but with a different funding model.”

A possible tax rate has not been established yet.

“We want it to be as low as possible,” said Trevis.

“We want to cap it per household so everyone pays the same.”

RDCO staff and director Jim Edgson will be at Wednesday’s meeting to determine if there is sufficient public interest to proceed with a referendum.

“I encourage people to come out and say which way things should go,” said Edgson, who is not taking a firm position on a new tax or retaining the status quo.

“I understand where they (association) are coming from but I want a referendum to determine if the public is willing to support the hall through a new tax.”

The hall is the only community space in the North Westside Road area, which covers an area from Westshore Estates to La Casa.

“Our hall is used well. We have a full schedule,” said Trevis.

How about user fees.  Some people hardly use the Hall and then some use the Hall all the time.

okanaganlakebc.ca believes a user fee would be more appropriate.

Council concept requires review
Vernon Morning Star - October 16, 2010

It’s time for Coldstream to review the Kalavista Neighbourhood Advisory Committee, and whether it is actually fulfilling its mandate and serving the community.

And the need for this scrutiny comes after a committee member stepped down. He has suggested the group is “creating conflicts and pitting neighbourhood against neighbourhood.”

District officials disagree but his concerns are valid because the committee appears to want to place severe restrictions on the boat launch, which has been around longer than most immediate neighbours and is used by the community-at-large.

The committee chairman says the goal isn’t to shut down the Kalavista launch. But he goes on to say that: “We need new boat launches but they shouldn’t be built in the middle of neighbourhoods.”

It would also be interesting to know how the members of the committee came to their duties? Were they simply appointed by council or were they selected by the neighbourhood?

It would also be good to know if the committee, in fact, is truly representative of a majority of residents who live in the Kalavista neighbourhood, and if the users of the launch — boaters — are represented in all discussions?

It may not have been the district’s intention when the committee was formed, but the Kalavista advisory committee is dominating considerable time and resources at the municipal office.

Certainly residents of the immediate neighbourhood should be involved in addressing any concerns around the boat launch, but it’s increasingly obvious that the advisory committee concept isn’t working out as planned.
 

Committee concept under fire
Vernon Morning Star - By Jennifer Smith - October 16, 2010

There is some concern that neighbourhoods in Coldstream are potentially being pitted against each other.

Bjorn Edblad recently resigned from the Kalavista Neighbourhood Advisory Committee, due to concerns about the direction the committee is going.

The committee was originally formed in May 2009 following numerous resident complaints in the area — mainly around the boat launch, but also the beach, pub, lagoon, etc.

One of council’s goals was to create a neighbourhood plan for the area. But that hasn’t gone over well with some Coldstream residents.

“There is nothing wrong with a vision statement however in my opinion it should be for Coldstream at large and not for numerous individual little neighbourhoods which would have the tendency of creating conflicts and pitting neighbourhood against neighborhood,” said Edblad in his resignation letter.

Some other Coldstream residents also have concerns about council creating individual neighbourhood committees.

Lorne Pearson doesn’t serve on the committee but lives near the Kalavista area, and says the issues that neighbourhood is dealing with affect the entire community.

“As a boater, I feel that the whole community should be involved in solving issues at the north end of the lake, not just one neighbourhood,” said Pearson.

“I feel that the community as a whole is being left out.”

Norm Hladun, chair of the Kalavista Neighbourhood Committee, admits that the committee has been controversial.

“The existence of this committee has been questioned since day one.”

But he says Edblad is off base saying neighbourhoods are being pitted against each other.

“That’s ridiculous.”

Craig Broderick, Coldstream director of development services, adds: “That’s certainly not the intent.

“Everyone’s trying to make the whole community better, whether you do this neighbourhood by neighbourhood.”

The committee is a way for council to hear the concerns of Kalavista residents. The committee cannot make decisions, it can only send recommendations, which council has the final say on.

“I don’t think council says, ‘we’re going to do whatever the committee says,’” said Mayor Jim Garlick.

The committee is pleased that their concerns about traffic, safety and peaceful livability in the area are being recognized. But contrary to what some residents believe, Hladun says the committee is not trying to shut down the lake or the boat launch.

“It would be silly to put forward things that don’t get the support of the community as a whole,” said Hladun.

Instead, he says Kalamalka Lake needs the infrastructure to give access to the lake in an area that can handle the traffic.

“We need new boat launches but they shouldn’t be built in the middle of neighbourhoods.”

With the public beach, pub, store, boat launch, and tennis courts all packed into the Kalavista area, it is a hub of activity.

Garlick says it is a unique and complex area, which is why the committee was formed.

While Coldstream as a whole shares a similar vision, the community is full of diverse neighbourhoods, each with their own concerns, therefore Hladun agrees that each deserves its own vision.

“What’s good for Lavington may not be good for Middleton Mountain and may not be good for Long Lake Estates, etc.”

If the energy is there, further neighbourhood committees could be formed.

Council started with the Kalavista neighbourhood due to ongoing concerns in the area.

“They (council) wanted to reach out to the community and that was the one neighbourhood that was raising its hands,” said Broderick.

The committee consists of two council members and eight appointees from the neighbourhood and residents at large. Its term ends Nov. 20, 2011.

The committee meets on the first Monday of each month at the municipal hall at 4:30 p.m. and Garlick reminds residents that the meetings are open to the public.

Here is an interesting article ... instead of this applying to a workplace, it could also apply to community involvement.

Reformulate Your Workplace to Cure a Toxic Environment

Discusses the human brain, its chemistry, how to improve this chemistry and change your outlook. Reprogram the brain and get it involved.

We hear a lot about the toxic workplace these days, and some of us can relate to the news. No one wants to work in an unhealthy environment. Poor morale and unnecessary stress are detrimental to employees and company alike. Caught in a downward spiral, the toxic workplace can feel like a pit of quicksand, pulling everyone down without hope of escape. Sometimes it seems there is no cure for the problem; personality conflicts and unavoidable stress cannot be resolved and people just have to accept the situation. A toxic workplace can be turned around and a positive environment that energizes everyone involved can be created. The human brain is an amazing tool. It is capable of analyzing and manipulating its environment to suit its needs. By understanding how the brain works and capitalizing on its capacity to process and learn, you can effectively reprogram a negative situation for a positive outcome.

Step 1: Understand Brain Chemistry

Advances in neuroscience and psychology have led to fascinating findings about how the brain works. Thanks to MRI imaging technology, scientists have discovered that the part of the brain that responds to emotional pain is the same part that responds to physical pain. This means that, to the brain, emotional pain is just as detrimental as physical pain.

Scientists have also discovered that "fairness" is very important to the brain. A situation perceived as fair lights up the same part of the brain as seeing a loved one or tasting good food does. Situations perceived as unfair light up the part of the brain that feels disgust. Positive experiences lead to the production of serotonin, a chemical in the brain that can improve performance. Negative or painful experiences cause the secretion of cortisol, a chemical that has an adverse effect on memory, mood and mental function. Unfairness also stimulates the amygdala. Long-term stimulation of the amygdala clouds judgment and reduces the brain’s ability to function.

By creating an environment of fairness and discouraging belligerence, you not only make employees happier, you improve their brain chemistry. This leads to better performance and increased morale. It can even improve learning and retention, since the same mechanisms that help the brain function help it retain information. This can be done by giving genuine praise to employees and providing positive recognition. Take steps to ensure fairness and implement policies and practices that employees can rely upon to provide evenhandedness.

Step 2: Improve Brain Chemistry

Prolonged stress will literally shrink your brain. Stress leads to cortisol and cortisol shrinks the hippocampus, the part of your brain that stores memory. It can also depress your mood, suppress your immune system and shorten your life span. While some stress is unavoidable, steps can be taken to minimize the effects of stress on the brain.

Exercise improves the flow of oxygen to your brain and reduces stress. Even as little as ten minutes of vigorous exercise can improve brain function. Aerobic activities that focus on increasing blood flow to the brain will promote calm.

Another way to reduce the effect of stress on the brain is to provide clear information. Uncertainty in the brain leads to fear and adrenaline overload. This reduces functioning and decision-making capabilities. Providing people with the most information possible, even in a negative situation, can reduce uncertainty. For example, according to David Rock, founder and chief executive officer of Results Coaching Systems, "If layoffs are coming and you say to a team, ‘We don’t know when we will have information,’ you will drive people crazy. However, if you say, ‘We don’t have information on the layoffs, but we will in four weeks,’ logically, you haven’t said who will be laid off, but you have given the brain a higher amount of certainty."

Step 3: Reprogram the Brain and Get It Involved

Behavior is learned. Every time you do something, you make new connections in the brain related to that task, and eventually you get better at it. This applies to both positive and negative behavior. Many people feel the need to vent, believing that it is better to get the negativity out of their system. But, as far as the brain is concerned, venting can actually have the opposite of the desired effect. The more you vent, the more you train your brain to vent. You train your brain to focus on negativity instead of focusing on problem solving and you spread conflict to those around you. You even increase your need to vent, meaning that you get angrier quicker when you are stressed.

Instead of training the brain to vent, the brain can be trained to resolve problems positively. Asking someone who complains about a problem to present a solution and working with him or her to solve the problem will begin reprogramming the brain to stop the negative cycle. Recognizing the contributions of problem solvers will stimulate their reward centers and encourage conflict resolution among others.

The brain likes to be in control. The more control the brain feels over its environment, the safer it feels and the better it performs. The more people can be involved in the decision making processes that effect their lives, the better they will function. The perception that they have control over a changing situation helps people accept the change and invest in the process. Decision-making stimulates brain growth and helps program the brain to move towards the desired outcome. Whenever a meeting can be made into an interactive activity, instead of a lecture, employees will retain more of the information presented and be more involved in implementing the change. Two-way communication is important. Instead of simply telling someone they need to improve sales, discuss how to improve sales and encourage their brains to focus on the solution.

By focusing on positive brain function, you can stop playing chemical roulette with a toxic workplace and create an atmosphere of respect and fairness where both the company and employees can thrive

Bulletin Boards (page 4)

Editorial Comment
The bulletin boards were financed by the North Westside Fire Department and the North Westside Firefighters Society. They were built by volunteers from the North Westside Communities Association and the firefighters. The newer ones are bus shelters for the school kids with bulletin boards. The fire department with the help of the NW Communities Assn, the NW Community News, KB Seniors Assn and other local groups who use the boards, as well as private citizens, try to keep the boards current within the rules posted on all the boards. The fire department supplies pins when ever they are needed and the pins on the ground are collected.  Old notices thrown/blown around the boards are picked up by many as a voluntary community service. I hope that all residents would do the same for their community. As posted in the rules, dated notices may remain on the board for 30 days. If you need more time or wish to post commercial notices that you would like to remain longer than 30 days, permission be obtained from the fire department.  The boards at Westshore Estates and Fintry Delta are particularly bad for catching the wind. Not everyone brings their own tacks and they borrow tacks from other posters. Once posters are free to blow in the wind, they are soon blown away.  And then there are people in the neighborhood who think it is their job to take down posters at random.  Unfortunately the Westshore Estates board appears to have a self-appointed monitor that removes other people’s notices.

One of the North Westside Communities Association Members emailed us May 6, 2011 to say this below about the bulletin boards and the article above.  We have replied asking why the bulletin boards have a notice posted at the top that says maintained by the North Westside Road Fire Dept.

And, lastly, the fire department doesn’t have anything to do with the community notice boards so you may want to remove the item appearing immediately below the “Toxic Workplace” article (not sure why that one is there either but …).

Dear Jim:

Rd: Grant-in-Aid for NWCA Website. We find it necessary to maintain the NWCA website on a yearly basis. Many residents who are out of the area, as well as in the area use the website to keep up to date.

We have contacted our webmaster Johane Andrews and she informed us it would cost $1,000 per year to run the website.

We would like to apply for a grant-in-aid of $1,000 to maintain our website for the year.

Thank you for your continued support.

North Westside Communities Association

Sorry but the normal everyday person CAN'T AFFORD to know this information, so you don't get to know unless of course you have $4,290 in cold hard cash.

If you went through the Freedom of Information Act asking for correspondence between the North Westside Communities Association and Regional District of Central Okanagan it will cost you $4,290 to find out what the North Westside Communities Association have been up to over the past few years.

Not only the average person or family but the community as a whole probably doesn't have that kind of money $4,290 ... just think of what it would cost in total to know everything???  Why can't this information be posted to RDCO's website for everyone to see, does everyone that wants to know this information have to each pay $4,290?  You would think RDCO should be able to support us LOL!!

Where does it show this extra income that information gatherer's pay to RDCO for Freedom of Information Requests in the Budget?  I guess we will have to look that up next.  Wonder how much money people actually paid for "FREEdumb" of information?

So in other words if you were the everyday Joe, you would have to be rich to be a know it all LOL.

Sorry but that's your democratic government system for ya!

NWCA Documents:  242 + 100 + 60 + 50 + 30 = total 482 documents x $.25 = $120.50

RDCO Hours: 125 hours + 13 hours + 1 hour + 1 hour + 1 hour = 141 hours = 141 hours x RDCO time @$30.00 per hour = $4,230

$120.50 for documents + $4,230 for time = $4,350.50 so where did RDCO's total estimate $4,290 come from?? Just look for the words (UNKNOWN under the Dept named Development & Environmental Services) on page 1 242 files + 2 OCP amendments to research Unknown it says.

$4350.50 OKLakeBC total minus $4,290 RDCO total = $60.50 total Unknown??

okanaganlakebc.ca is going to propose to RDCO that okanaganlakebc.ca attend RDCO and do the document search and scan the documents so that they can be published to RDCO's website for free, and see what RDCO will say to this free offer.  No RDCO wages and no cost for photocopies.  Then what will it cost residents???  It wouldn't surprise us to get a "NO" answer again and again and again and again and again LOL!  RDCO could almost make the "Guinness Book of World Records" saying "NO" to Westsiders LOL.

Oh Canada!!!
O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

From far and wide,

The Regional Board has approved the following Central Okanagan West Electoral Area Grant-in-Aid request:
North Westside Communities Association - $1,550 for installation of Emergency Electrical Power and other improvements to the Killiney Beach Community Hall.

The North Westside Communities Association seems to get continuous ongoing grant-in-aid but yet the North Westside Ratepayers were told that they are not eligible for grant-in-aid on an ongoing basis.  Why is there a difference?  Are the North Westside Communities Association special?

Elector Assent Sought On North Westside
The Regional Board has approved the use of the Alternative Approval Process to gain elector assent for establishing a Service Area to provide an annual grant to the North Westside Communities Association for the operation and maintenance of the Killiney Beach Community Hall, adjacent library and supporting lands. The proposed grant would be raised through a tax requisition of five cents per $1,000 assessed value for properties within the North Westside Road Fire Protection District. Elector Response Forms will be available from 8:00 am Monday, September 24th to 4:00 pm Wednesday, October 31st. At least 10% of the estimated 2,099 eligible electors must sign and return forms to require the Regional Board to hold a referendum before adopting the necessary bylaws establishing the new Service Area.

Killiney Beach Community Hall Funding
The Regional Board has agreed to utilize the Alternative Approval Process to determine elector approval for establishing a tax requisition grant to assist in funding the Killiney Beach Community Hall.
At the request of the North Westside Communities Association, electors within the North Westside Road Fire Protection Service Area, will be asked whether they approve a five cent per $1,000 assessed value grant for the operation and maintenance of the Community Hall. The funds raised would also be used to establish a reserve fund for future maintenance. Elector Response Forms will be available at a future date. At least ten per cent of electors in the Proposed Grant Bylaw Service Area would have to sign and return forms to require the Regional Board to hold a referendum before passing the necessary bylaws. If the tax requisition is approved, the lease agreement with the Association would be amended to include the grant subsidy.

When you belong to any Association your vote, if its a yes or a no vote, can change depending on what the majority of the Association votes.  If the majority vote yes, then your vote becomes a yes, and if they vote no, then your vote becomes no.  Belonging to an Association can be used against you.

If you would prefer to have your vote remain what you voted, either yes or no, then check out this concept about direct democracy or pure democracy.

This article from the North Westside Communities News from June 2007 on page 5 explains what the North Westside Communities Association are about.

Warning, don't believe everything you read!!

If you notice in the top right corner of this page above, it says:
Liaison to RDCO on governance issues for North Westside individuals, groups or communities.

Well at least one resident feels that the President of the North Westside Communities Association Harry Pospolita chooses which members he would like to liaison for.

Harry wouldn't permit one resident to be a delegate at one of the NWCA meetings regarding the transfer station petition when they showed up with the transfer station petition in hand which some members signed.  This person had called Harry ahead of time and asked to be a delegate for that meeting.  Harry told this resident, "We'll see" regarding being a delegate.   When the resident did show up to be a delegate with the petition in hand, Harry said he didn't write them down as a delegate and that the person with the transfer station petition couldn't be a delegate that night.  Harry Pospolita also said he wouldn't back the transfer station petition that some of the NWCA members signed.  He said that if residents knew how much smaller transfer stations in each subdivision would cost them they wouldn't have signed the transfer station petition. 

If you signed the transfer station petition, do you feel Harry made up your mind for you about the transfer station petition and are you happy about that?

Alternative Approval Process Result
The Regional Board has received the result of the recent Alternative Approval Process for a proposed bylaw to fund the operation and maintenance of the Killiney Beach Recreation Building. A total of 363 electors returned response forms, which is greater than the minimum ten per cent of signatures required and prevents the Board from proceeding with the bylaw without first holding a referendum to seek elector approval. Regional District staff will review the options with the Electoral Area Director.

Downtown senior agitators were setting a poor example
By Jennifer Smith - Kelowna Capital News - March 14, 2008

It’s time to turn off the elevator music at the gas stations and bus stops. It turns out, it may actually draw in the nasty crowd.

Critiquing mobs of teens and young adults, and the infinite list of ills they commit during the bar flush, has become the last bastion of Kelowna’s curmudgeonly establishment. But this week the true crap disturbers were out in force to (literally) raise cane at city hall—and there wasn’t a preteen, youth or many middle-agers among them.

No, if you really want to see some infantile riffraff, you need to spend a little time with the elderly downtown crowd. They helped perpetuate a string of stereotypes during the St. Paul’s transitional housing debate, and now they’re back to bring down a developer’s bid to fly the odd helicopter through their neighbourhood.

Don’t get me wrong, the helipad plan is weak. If Transport Canada agrees, there will be choppers landing on a Manhattan Drive building, right beside a beautiful park full of wildlife and birds. Now who would want that?

A few tuned-in residents and environmentalists diligently worked to get that message out, but the mob who joined them at city hall Monday appeared none too interested in a logical argument. Raining shouts on the mayor to turn up the sound system—which was plenty loud enough—one had to wonder whether the old codgers could hear a helicopter if one were to swoop down and land on their heads.

And make no mistake about it, that’s what these particular North End residents are all about. The only time most of the grey-hairs probably discuss the birds is when they’re ranting about how the city must help them, or leaning on their walkers, delivering a little one-fingered salute to someone driving the actual speed limit.

One city councillor dared tell them the helipad is an attractive bargaining chip to lure companies offering more than the usual $10-an-hour tourism jobs. The grey-hairs promptly beat her down, jeering at the possibility young people might need a hand coping with the cost of living in this town.

Watching the complete lack of respect shown—not only to city council, but to the possibility Kelowna might need to adapt and, God forbid, try something new—was about as appealing as chowing down on the liver and digestives they still stock over at Safeway, no doubt under threat of fisticuffs from these old crones.

The message was clear and we’ve heard it before. Put a fence up around the town and send the new, young and vital packing. You’re not wanted here.

So to grandma, grandpa, and the old maid next to him, I say: Guess what deary? Without me, my neighbour and the rest of Kelowna’s working families, none of you surly grey-hairs would have clean streets to walk, doctors to visit, coffee dates at Tim Hortons, or free newspapers.

Maintaining your community means listening to everyone, not booing and hissing when you don’t like what you hear, then battering through the crowd to make yet another trip to the washrooms. I mean come on, whatever happen to growing older and wiser?

Grants-In-Aid
The Regional Board has approved the following Westside grants-in-aid.
• North Westside Communities Association - $3,000 to assist in replacing the carpet in the Killiney Beach Community Hall.

.pdf icon The NWCA want to "rebuild the kitchen in the year 2012 costing $10,000" and replace the community hall roof only to be destroyed in 15 years in the year 2027????

Background
The North Westside Road Communities Association leased the land and constructed the Killiney Beach Community Hall in the 1970's. Since that time the community has operated the building and completed all repairs and maintenance as required. The operation and maintenance has been funded through hall rentals, fundraising activities and regular requests for grant-in-aid contributions from the Regional District.

The community has now requested the establishment of a local service area to provide a more secure source of funding, allowing them to continue the current operation and maintenance in addition to building a reserve fund for upcoming major maintenance items such the replacement of the kitchen and the community hall roof.

To conclude his presentation, Wayne advised that the Department is looking to complete the existing 5 year plan, which is the building, tender and snuffer and to hold a referendum. The Department would also like to implement the 25 year plan to replace truck for the 2nd pumper in 2015 and replacement of the Killiney Beach Hall in 2027 @ $300,000.
