Blue Divider Line

Constitutionally, the municipal institutional authority to regulate the private use of land is a provincial power under the "property and civil rights" heading in Section 92(13) of the Constitution Act, 1867. Accordingly, the laws controlling land use are primarily provincial, although there are exceptions created by federal control over lands used for Indian reserves, airports, railways, harbours and other purposes regulated by federal law.

Government bound by enactments; exception

14 (1) Unless it specifically provides otherwise, an enactment is binding on the government.

(2) Despite subsection (1), an enactment that would bind or affect the government in the use or development of land, or in the planning, construction, alteration, servicing, maintenance or use of improvements, as defined in the Assessment Act, does not bind or affect the government.

Shelter Cove Estates Extension Request
The Regional Board has agreed to a second, one year extension to a rezoning application and a Development Variance Permit application for Shelter Cove Estates Limited. The applicant continues efforts with outside agencies to address key servicing issues for the partially developed subdivision. The property adjacent to Westside Road is regulated under a Land Use Contract which permits subdivision of the parcel into 42 vacation home sites. The applicant is proposing to subdivide the property into 36 separate properties with permission for full-time occupancy.

Secondary Suite Application Approvals
The Regional Board has directed development of a policy allowing staff approval of applications from property owners who wish to install new or legalize existing secondary suites. Several other Central Okanagan local governments have such policies for approving secondary suite applications rather than a formal bylaw amendment process that requires Board or Council approval. It’s anticipated the public will be consulted about this proposal as part of the 2017 Electoral Area Planning program plan.

Secondary Suite Applications
The Regional Board has adopted two separate bylaw amendment applications to allow secondary suites on properties in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West electoral areas.
- The application from the owner of a property in the 11200 block of Highway 33 east legalizes an existing secondary suite under the Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw by an attached breezeway to an existing single-detached house on the .59-hectare property.
- The application from the owner of a property in the 4400 block of Maxwell Road allows a secondary suite to be included in a house that is under construction on the 2.5-hectare property.

Westside Road Property Rezoning
The Regional Board has given second and third reading to a rezoning application from Tolko Industries Limited for an 8.7-hectare property along Westside Road in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area. The company is seeking a zoning in keeping with the future land use designation in the Rural Westside Official Community Plan and allowing a rural residential use consistent with the surrounding area. Final consideration and approval of this application will take place once several conditions are met including approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

The properties are located next to Kelowna International Airport (YLW) within the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area. The exclusion is required to accommodate future expansion plans at YLW and because the properties are within a 1200 foot buffer from runways as recommended by Transport Canada in order to reduce potential wildlife hazards associated with agricultural uses.

Temporary Use Permit (TUP) Renewals
The Regional Board has given conditional approval to renew two, separate Temporary Use Permits for an additional three years to allow temporary farm worker housing on two agricultural properties within the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.
The first renewal permit allows up to 24 additional farm workers to live in temporary accommodation on a farm at 4401 Old Vernon Road.
The second renewal permit allows temporary accommodation for an additional 18 farm workers on a property at 3231 Old Vernon Road.
The renewal of each permit requires the applicant to meet a number of conditions identified by the Community Services Planning department.

Zoning Bylaw Application Extension
The Regional Board has approved a one year extension for an application to amend the Zoning Bylaw. The applicant wishes to bring the current temporary farm worker accommodation use on a property along Old Vernon Road in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area into compliance with the Zoning Bylaw, which was amended in 2014 to allow accommodation for temporary farm workers on appropriately zoned parcels, subject to specific conditions and requirements. Two previous temporary use permit applications to provide farm worker housing on the property were approved by the Board in 2008 and 2012.

Introduction
Similar to 2014, this year was filled with activities as wide-ranging as a major fundraising event, attendance at the RDCO's Kokanee Festival, grant writing, and site tours for prospective projects. The combined result of this work is a regional land trust with a strengthened financial position, stronger connections to the community, and a rising awareness of the value of COLT to funding opportunities that are not open to local government. The following headings identify some of the work undertaken on behalf of improvement to local biodiversity and the ultimate benefit of us all.

1. Financial
The financial dimensions of COLT's work this year were largely in two areas, both of which help us meet our mandate, support our partner local governments, and strengthen regional biodiversity. First, our grant writing work has secured roughly $600,000 of funding and other support toward projects we have in partnership with either the Regional District Central Okanagan and the City of Kelowna.  Second, in addition to the Hobson Family Fund announcement of their second installment of $25,000, and the 25th Anniversary event provided us with an opportunity to announce two other funding contributions. First, Cynthia Hunter, one of the original signators to the COLT's incorporation as a registered society, came forward with an endowment in the amount of $20,000 registered with the Central Okanagan Foundation. This brings COLT's endowed funds to more than $200,000. Second, Todd Cashin, with the group Trout Unlimited, announced a $5000 challenge donation to the Mission Creek Restoration Initiative - the challenge went out to the OCEOLA Fish and Game Club, Peachland Sportsman's Association, and the Kelowna Fish and Game Club - one of those challenges has already been met in the amount of $5000.

Floodplain Exemption/Variance Applications
The Regional Board has approved two separate applications for a waterfront property owner in the 2300 block of Westside Place. The applicant wants to demolish an existing cabin on the property and build a new single detached house which will be situated on a geographically unique parcel with siting redevelopment challenges. The application for Floodplain Exemption is subject to registration of a Floodplain Covenant with setbacks for the proposed new dwelling from Okanagan Lake. The second application for a Development Variance Permit also relates to the siting of the new house.

FrontCounter BC Referral Application
The Regional Board has given conditional support to an application to FrontCounter BC referred to the Board for comment. The Okanagan Bouldering Society is working with Recreation Sites and Trails BC to formalize existing uses on Crown land in an area south and outside of the City of Kelowna known as ‘Bouldering Fields’, which is near Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park, Gillard Creek and Bellevue Creek. The Society wants to improve the existing access road, parking area and provide a designated camping area. The Board asks that FrontCounter BC requires the applicant to address several conditions including development of a management plan and environmental assessment and that the applicant meet with RDCO planning staff to discuss zoning requirements for the proposed campsites.

management of the site.
Staff highlighted RDCO and agency referral comments. Discussion included:
- As there is not an existing campground approved, will zoning need to be changed? Staff noted it will depend upon the type of camping. Currently some camping occurs in the parking area. The camp site will be co-managed between the two organizations. How many campsites are planned? This information is not available, but staff has asked for information regarding the proposed campsite.
- Why is an environmental impact study being requested? The RDCO Environmental Advisory Commission recommended a study to ensure the environment is considered and protected when developing access to the site, and campgrounds.
- Who maintains the access road to the site? Current access is from the KVR forest service road. Access from the KVR road to the site is maintained by the Society.
- Sports like this encourage healthy access to the backcountry.
- The site has been utilized by Kelowna Fire Rescue for training activities.
- What is meant by 'festivals'? It is hoped it will only be a bouldering festival not a 'music' festival.
- FrontCounter BC makes the final decision on all recommendations.

.pdf icon Item 6.1 Crown Foreshore License Of Occupation Renewals

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

Purpose:
The purpose of this report is to seek Regional Board approval to renew the foreshore licence of occupation for Bertram Creek, Gellatly Nut Farm, and Kalamoir Regional Parks and Lakeshore Road Community Park for a term of 30 years.

Executive Summary:
The Province of British Columbia is in the process of renewing the foreshore licence of occupation for Bertram Creek, Gellatly Nut Farm, and Kalamoir Regional Parks and Lakeshore Road Community Park, licence 341938. Instead of the standard 10 year renewal the Province is offering a 30 year renewal licence and requires a resolution of support from the Regional Board. The foreshore licence of occupation for these parks is required to operate the swim areas along the foreshore of the parks and for placing swim protection measures such as swim buoys within the swim area. In anticipation that several other existing RDCO park foreshore licences of occupation will be offered for either a 10 or 30 year term, staff have recommended that the RDCO Board support all future licence renewals for any similarly offered extended terms.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Regional Board approves the renewal of Licence of Occupation # 341938 for a 30 Year Licence of Occupation from the Province of BC for Lakeshore Road Community Park, Bertram Creek, Gellatly Nut Farm, and Kalamoir Regional Parks.

AND FURTHER THAT the Regional Board approves the renewal of any existing Licence of Occupation tenures for park purposes for either a 10 year or 30 year term as nominated by the Province of BC.

6.1 Crown Foreshore Licence of Occupation Renewal - Multiple Parks (All Directors - Weighted Vote)

Staff report dated January 6, 2016 outlined the Licence of Occupation renewals for Lakeshore Road Community Park, Bertram Creek and Gellatly Nut Farm and Kalamoir Regional Parks.

It was noted that in anticipation of other existing RDCO park foreshore licence renewals for either 10 or 30 year terms, Board support is sought for any similarly offered extended terms. Provincial staff have suggested that Board approval be
sought for all renewals that are coming up (19 Crown tenures) for example, 8 are due in 2016-2017, and 3 in 2017-2018. Staff outlined the various parks in Crown tenure. Staff noted that a stand-alone report will be brought forward for Mission
Creek Regional Park as discussions continue with Westbank First Nation on renewal of a Licence of Occupation.

It was noted that the Kalamoir Park tenure does not run the full length of the park but is divided into three pockets along the foreshore of the park. The question was raised whether the RDCO could seek tenure for the full length of the Crown
land foreshore? Staff noted that the key swim areas are protected through a foreshore license with the federal government. The RDCO has limited management authority on the foreshore.

DEJONG/SIEBEN
THAT the Regional Board approves the renewal of Licence of Occupation #341938 for a 30-year Licence of Occupation from the Province of BC for Lakeshore Road Community Park, and Bertram Creek, Gellatly Nut Farm and Kalamoir Regional Parks;
AND FURTHER THAT the Regional Board approves the renewal of any existing Licence of Occupation tenures for park purposes for either a 10-year or 30-year term as nominated by the Province of BC.

FrontCounter BC Referral Application
The Regional Board has given conditional approval to an application made to FrontCounter BC from the owners of the La Casa development strata. The Strata Corporation has applied to purchase three tenured parcels of Crown land totalling 3.28-hectares in order to protect existing land uses and on one parcel to construct amenities for the strata owners at the resort. The Board support is conditional on the applicant addressing a number of conditions prior to completion of the sale including amendments to the strata bylaws to reflect ‘no motorized vehicle’ areas and installation of a fence along the property boundary to prevent off-road vehicle access in the environmentally sensitive Fintry Provincial Park and Protected Area.

July – September Program & Service Update
The Regional Board has received an update on program and service accomplishments during the third quarter of the year. These include receipt of a Small Communities Fund grant of $1.9-million for upgrades to the Killiney Beach water system; the creation of two new composting instructional videos by the Regional Waste Reduction Office; two national awards for the Economic Development Commission; a clean GST audit report and the start of preparations for the 2016 budget process. Potential deficits have been identified and staff is working to mitigate in the areas of Electoral Area Planning, Economic Development and the Dietrich/Trepanier water system. The Regional District provided staff along with other local government partners during three activations of the Emergency Operations Centre for the Joe Rich/Huckleberry fire, the Bear Creek fire and the Shelter Cove/Westside Road wildfire. After nine months, the Dog Control service has 20,700 licensed dogs (19,815 from Jan. - Sept. 2014). In Planning, Service Agreements for Fringe Area Planning have been endorsed between the Regional District and four member municipalities. In Parks Services, three draft management plans are being developed; a new Cottonwoods pedestrian bridge has been installed over Mission Creek and a community consultation survey was conducted on possible infrastructure upgrades for the Fintry Community Park – Lake Access #3.

Referral Application:

7.1 Report regarding a FrontCounter BC referral application to purchase three parcels of Crown land currently under tenure in the vicinity of La Casa Lakeside Cottage Resort (CL-15-1 0) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated November 16, 2015 outlined the FrontCounter BC referral application to permit the purchase of three parcels of Crown land currently under tenure. La Casa Resort Development users have historically been accessing the
adjacent Fintry Provincial Park and Protected Area with ATVs. The strata council has worked collaboratively with BC Parks to address ATV access concerns with a focus on stewardship of the adjacent environmentally friendly lands.

The three Crown land parcels are approximately 8 acres in size. The survey plan was highlighted. It was noted that the management plan appended to the Board report is not the most current report La Casa has developed (a new one has just
recently been drafted which illustrates how the lands will be managed in such a manner consistent with limiting environmental impacts to the neighbouring protected area).

Staff provided an overview of the site including the upper and lower loop roads including signage placed prohibiting motorized vehicle access.
BC Parks letter of support was noted. In addition, Westbank First Nation has consented to the sale of the lands.

Mr. Curtis Darmohray of Pushor Mitchell, lawyer for the applicant, asked through staff to address the Board regarding the recommended condition for consolidation of the parcels with Strata KAS2428.

BASRAN/CARSON
THAT Mr. Darmohray be invited to address the Board.

CARRIED Unanimously

Mr. Darmohray addressed the Board

- A request to remove from the staff recommendation that the parcels be consolidated. Consolidating these three parcels would require unanimous approval by the 501 strata owners which would be difficult as many of the owners do not live in the area-owners are from all over Canada, as well as outside Canada. The question was asked if there isn't a more practical way to address this issue.
- The Strata Council proposes that a covenant be registered on title that the Crown parcels cannot be sold.

Staff noted consolidation would be a better approach as registering a covenant may create difficulty down the road for development on the property (ie: buildings encroaching the property boundary) and as long as the newly created lot is 1 ha
minimum in keeping with the C5 zone of Zoning Bylaw No. 871. Technical issue of registering the covenant can be addressed at rezoning.
- Mr. Darmohray noted the Strata Corporation would own the three parcels and the covenant would be binding on the Strata Corporation. The roadway will provide direct access to the common property of the Strata therefore the parcels will always be required and would never be sold. All green space lots are owned by the Strata Corporation. Green space lots cannot be combined as unanimous approval would be required for this as well.

Director Hanson arrived at 8:10 p.m.

BAKER/CARSON
THAT FrontCounter referral application to permit the purchase of three Crown land parcels adjacent to the La Casa Resort development, south of Fintry (CL-15-10) for the Owners of Strata Plan KAS2428 (La Casa) be conditionally supported Subject to the following being addressed prior to the issuance of, or applied as conditions to, the sale of the subject parcels:
• Issues and recommendations of other agencies (included and appended to the Regional District staff report dated November 16, 2015).
• Strata KAS2428 bylaws be amended to reflect the 'no motorized vehicle' areas.
• That a covenant be registered on title on the subject Crown parcels stating the parcels cannot be sold, without Regional District consent and that the parcels be managed by the Strata Corporation.
• For Block C: the applicant to install a fence along the eastern border, to apply for a Development Permit, and to submit an application to amend the zoning and OCP designation.

Regional District Rejects Developer Allegations

The Regional District of Central Okanagan has received notice of another court action brought against it by Kelowna Mountain.

The Regional District rejects all claims made against it and will vigorously defend itself at the appropriate time in court should this case proceed.

Two previous attempts by Kelowna Mountain Development Services Ltd. to challenge the planning authority of the Regional District have been rejected by the courts. The most recent failed bid was in September 2014 when the Court of Appeal dismissed the case, upholding the validity of the RDCO Zoning Bylaw No. 871.

RDCO Board Chair Gail Given says, “It’s unfortunate that yet again, Central Okanagan taxpayers will be footing the bill for a legal challenge from this developer. I can say that the Regional District will actively defend itself against these unproven and false accusations that are without merit. I can also confirm the Regional District has yet to receive any application from the developer for consideration by the Regional District. Any further comments will be respectfully reserved for court.”

FrontCounter BC Referral Application
The Regional Board has given conditional support to a Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure application to FrontCounter BC. The referral application requests the withdrawal of 37.46-hectares of Crown land along Trepanier Road with the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to the Westbank First Nation reserves. The Board requests the concerns identified by the District of Peachland, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and RDCO Parks Services and any issues identified by the City of West Kelowna be addressed or applied as conditions to the application.

Two Secondary Suite Applications Approved
The Regional Board has adopted two separate zoning amendment bylaws that approve two individual secondary suites. The first will legalize an existing suite within a single detached dwelling on Anderson Road in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area. The second bylaw approves a legal secondary suite to be included within a proposed single detached house along Trepanier Road in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area.

Item 6.1 Frontcounter BC Referral Application Crown Land Disposition
Purpose:
To consider a Front Counter BC referral application pertaining to the disposition of Crown land for the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to the Westbank Indian Reserve for an indefinite term.
Executive Summary:
The Crown lands proposed for disposition are associated with a negotiated land el<change between Westbank First Nation and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for lands required for a highway Improvement project. Several issues and concerns have been identified, including RDCO Parks Services having ongoing interests in the area and the District of Peachland being opposed to the proposal.
RECOMMENDATION:
THAT Front Counter referral application for the purpose of withdrawing Crown land from disposition for the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to the Westbank Indian Reserve (indefinite term) under the Land Act in vicinity of Highway 97C, adjacent to Trepanier Road (CL-15-09) for Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure be conditionally supported subject to:

Purpose:
To consider a FrontCounter BC referral application to permit the purchase of three Crown land parcels (Term: indefinite).

The purchase of the Crown land parcels is of great concern to a number of agencies and RDCO staff as La Casa development users have been accessing the adjacent Fintry Provincial Park and Protected Area with ATVs; La Casa has not proven stewardship of the adjacent environmentally sensitive lands.
RECOMMENDATION:
THAT FrontCounter referral application to permit the purchase of three Crown land parcels (Blocks B, C & D) adjacent to the La Casa resort development, south of Fintry (CL-15-10) for the Owners of Strata Plan KAS2428 (La Casa) not be supported.

6.1 Report regarding a FrontCounter BC referral application to withdraw Crown land from disposition for the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to the Westbank Indian Reserve in the vicinity of Highway 97C, adjacent to Trepanier Road. (CL-15-09) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated October 19, 2015 outlined the referral application for the disposition of six Crown land parcels for the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to Westbank Indian Reserve for an indefinite term. The disposition is associated with a negotiated land exchange between Westbank First Nation (WFN) and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for lands required for a highway improvement project.

The parcels are located within the Trepanier area of Central Okanagan West Electoral Area, approximately 92~ acres of land. Staff reviewed an overhead of the subject property. There is no information available as to what the future land use is being proposed by WFN.

Staff noted the District of Peachland has provided a letter of opposition to the application listing issues such as: property is located in their watershed, Trepanier Road is not designed for large volumes of traffic which may become an issue in the future should gravel production begin within the site, property should be included in the West Kelowna Fire Protection contract with WFN and that the property will not conflict with the proposed Hwy 97 bypass in this area.

Staff report outlined various agency comments including Parks Services comments regarding RDCO's ongoing interests in the area for recreational trail connection opportunities. Historically, FrontCounter does take the conditions provided by RDCO into consideration.

The Board was reminded that RDCO does not have any decision making authority and that FrontCounter has indicated their desire to move forward with a decision shortly. It was noted that addition to reserves takes a long time and can be a frustrating process for the applicant. Often lands are not contiguous to current First Nation lands. It was further noted that WFN could purchase any Crown land and local governments would have no opportunity for comment.

Councillor Werstuik addressed comments raised at the Board table. Westbank First Nation live in the area and water is critical to their people as it is with others, provincial legislation applies to forestry work, environmental protection is critical to their people-laws of general application apply, their laws meet or exceed provincial standards, the gravel pit has not been in operation for years, as good neighbours would not do something contradictory to local areas, road right-of-way is not included or subject to the agreement. WFN has fulfilled their obligations in respect to the highway upgrades and believes the land falls within their aboriginal lands and title.

The question was raised if Trepanier residents have been asked to comment. It was noted that community meetings are not normally held for a provincial referral application such as this.

BAKER/BASRAN
THAT FrontCounter referral application for the purpose of withdrawing Crown land from disposition for the purpose of transferring the land as an addition to the Westbank Indian Reserve (indefinite term) under the Land Act in the vicinity of
Highway 97C, adjacent to Trepanier Road (CL-15-09) for Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure be conditionally supported subject to:

• The issues and concerns of the District of Peachland, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (Resource Management) and Regional District Parks and Planning staff (noted and appended in the October 19, 2015 Board report) being addressed or applied as conditions to the application for disposition of the subject Crown land parcels.
• Any issues or concerns submitted from the City of West Kelowna being addressed or applied as conditions to the application for disposition of the subject Crown land parcels.

Crystal Ski and Golf Resort Extension
The Regional Board has agreed to a final, one year extension to the rezoning application from the proponents of Crystal Ski and Golf Resort. The Board granted previous extension requests to provide the proponents additional time to secure financing to move ahead with the proposed rezoning of Phase 1 of the resort development. While the Board generally sees potential economic and quality of life benefits associated with the proposed resort expansion, it is concerned that a number of conditions previously required at third reading of the rezoning bylaw back in 2009 have expired or may be out of date. If the application doesn’t proceed by September 10th next year, it will lapse and the rezoning file will be closed.

Secondary Suite Application – Trepanier Rd.
The Regional Board has given second and third reading a Zoning Amendment bylaw application for a one-hectare property in the 4500 Block of Trepanier Road in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area. The owners intend to develop a legal secondary suite within the proposed single detached house, to replace a house that was destroyed by fire in December 2013. Final consideration and adoption will take place once the bylaw has been approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Anderson Rd. Secondary Suite Application
The Regional Board has given first reading to a Zoning Amendment bylaw application for a 1.87-hectare property in the 3600 Block of Anderson Road in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area. The owners wish to legalize an existing secondary suite within the single detached house on the property. A Public Hearing will be scheduled and advertised.

5.1 Extension Request for Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 871-177 for Crystal Ski and Golf Resort Inc.

Staff report dated September 21, 2015, following Board direction from the September 10th meeting, outlined the status of items to be completed prior to adoption of Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 871-177. The applicant has requested a one-year extension of the amendment bylaw.
STACK/BASRAN
THAT the question (#171/15) be laid on the table.
CARRIED Unanimously

Speaking to the motion:
• The motion to deny is appropriate as the time since third reading has gone on too long. The applicant had said he needs to raise $45mil before he would be prepared to move forward.
• The applicant is responsible for the demise of the application. This is a business and there has clearly been no movement on the file.
• One last extension may provide the applicant time to raise the funds required to move forward.
• The ski hill rebuild is separate from the Phase 1 zoning application.
Would denying the request be seen as 'killing the mountain'? The ski hill at Crystal Mountain is an asset to the community.
• There is existing zoning for the ski hill. The ski lift operation is provincial jurisdiction.
• There is no harm in leaving the application for one final year. The onus is on the owner to get all outstanding conditions completed over the year.

5.2 Information Report: FrontCounter BC Referral Applications - Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations

The Regional Board at its June 11, 2015 meeting expressed concern that FrontCounter BC's current referral process does not provide the Regional District with a list of agencies that have been notified.  A request was forwarded to FrontCounter that the RDCO be provided with a list of agencies that are being consulted on all future referral applications.
FrontCounter BC responded to the Regional District's concern in its letter of August 25th noting that all agencies, stakeholders and the public are provided the opportunity to make comment on all significant Crown land applications. Providing a list of all agencies and stakeholders receiving a referral on every Crown land application would create an administrative burden for the Province, but also raises privacy concerns for some stakeholders. FrontCounter is prepared to meet with staff on issues of concern.

BASRAN/HODGE
THAT the Governance and Services Committee receive for information the August 25, 2015 letter from the Director of Authorizations with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations regarding FrontCounter BC referral applications.
AND FURTHER THAT staff after meeting with FrontCounter provide a follow up to the Committee by email on the outcome of their discussions.

Item 5.1 Zoning Amendment Bylaw No 871 177 Crystal Ski And Golf Resort

SUBJECT: Zoning Amendment Bylaw No, 871-177 (Application Z08/03) Crystal Ski & Golf Resort Inc.-owners/Pheidias Dev, Management Corp. - agent

Purpose:
To consider a request from the development proponent for a one-year extension to the rezoning application, The intent of the associated bylaw amendment is to add the CD-6 Crystal Mountain Comprehensive Development - Phase 1 Zone into Zoning Bylaw No. 871 and to zone the subject Phase 1 lands accordingly.

Planning

5.1 Extension Request for Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 871-177 for Crystal Ski and Golf Resort Inc. (owner) and Pheidias Development Management Corporation (agent) to add the Crystal Mountain Comprehensive Development Zone into Zoning Bylaw No. 871, and to zone the subject Phase 1 lands accordingly. Located adjacent to Glenrosa Road and Last Mountain Road (Z08/03) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated September 2, 2015 outlined that another extension has been requested for Crystal Ski and Golf Resort Inc. as the financing required to proceed with the project has not yet been secured. Second and third readings were given in 2009 and there has been no activity with the file nor has it been demonstrated that the project will proceed since that time. There is concern that over the years the zoning amendment has been extended, agency requirements may have changed. Staff believes it would be prudent for the developer to come forward with a new application, if and when they are able to proceed with the project.

The owner has recently indicated their intent to replace and upgrade the ski-lift infrastructure on Crystal Mountain. Completion of the work is not possible for this season but anticipated, if funding can be put in place, to be completed by
the 2016/17 season. It was noted that the zoning amendment does not limit the developer from completing upgrades to the ski hill--the Master Agreement for the resort is with the Province.

The Board was reminded to restrict their comments to the extension request as no new information can be received by the Board for the zoning amendment bylaw. It was noted that the owner, Mr. David Tschanz is in attendance.
In discussion it was noted:
• Agency requirements since 2009 may have changed or may be invalid.
• The key agency is the City of West Kelowna. There are servicing agreements with West Kelowna which may no longer be valid.
• With provincial agencies, comments are normally valid for one year.
• Why not complete the rezoning application, what is the hold-up? The rezoning does not impact the ski hill development.
• Staff noted they believe there were 14 conditions at third reading that had to be satisfied before adoption of the bylaw-most but not all have been completed.
• If an extension is denied will it impact the reopening of the ski hill in 2016/2017? The comprehensive development master agreement with Province stays in place.
• If the extension is denied, staff will meet with the applicant when they are ready to move forward with Phase 1 development and the process would start again.
• Want to see economic development in the area but there have been so many extensions with no assurance the project will proceed.
• The 'global' financial situation is unlikely to change 'overnight'.
• The applicant has the ability to continue with the ski hill replacement - a functioning ski hill would attract investors if there is an interest.

Mr. David Tschanz addressed the Board highlighting that plans are underway to upgrade the ski hill lift and gondola with plans to reopen in 2016/2017. Over $5mil has been invested to date but he is still looking for investment funds. It has been difficult to raise funds in Europe for ski resorts. He is negotiating the purchase of high-end ski equipment in Europe and is convinced he can raise $45mil to complete the project and build a high quality resort.

The Board, through a staff interpreter speaking German, asked him the following:
If he is committed to see this through, Why not complete the rezoning application now and then find the investors for upgrades to the ski hill. He stated he is not prepared to spend any more dollars unless he has funding commitment for the full project, which for him includes the ski hill. He stated that investors will not come forward if they are not assured that zoning is in place.

Staff noted there may be some confusion with the owner (due to the language barrier and that his agent was not in attendance) for the requirements of the rezoning application and the ski hill development. Servicing agreements can be addressed through the subdivision development bylaw. Staff is able to work with the applicant on the issue of rebuilding the ski hill. Anything outside ski hill structure rebuilding would require the rezoning to be approved.

BASRAN/GAMBELL

Amendment to the main motion:

EXAMPLE OF HOW RDCO ENFORCES ITS ZONING BYLAW #871


RDCO Building Dept told us twice that this property does not have a building permit.
RDCO Bylaw Enforcement won't tell us anything, so we are going through Freedom of Information to find out why there is a Travel Trailer and Vehicle on an empty lot without a dwelling unit and without a building permit, as well as being an outdoor storage yard without a dwelling unit or building permit.  On the August long weekend they were post pounding, chain sawing, and running a generator for hours a day.  If it wasn't for the generator noise running in the evening, we probably wouldn't have made a complaint, but when you are trying to water your garden in the evening, and you have to listen to a generator running in the evenings for a few weeks, it finally encouraged us to make a complaint.  Then they brought a machine in, and moved a bunch of dirt, filling in voids.  Don't know if the property owner knows you can't build a foundation on fill without putting in piles.  All that noise pretty much ruined our August long weekend.  We reported this before the August long weekend after the property owner had stayed in two travel trailers and had been there a couple weeks running his generator, and it looked like they were moving in.  When we talked to the property owner, we asked if they were going to build, and we were told hopefully.  Then we asked, by winter, and we were told again, hopefully.  If they are going to build, shouldn't they have a building permit?  It took RDCO a couple weeks before they attended, which was after we told RDCO there was a machine in there.  That green thing is a water slide.  The pickup has been parked there for a few weeks.  There is a large wire cage looking thing sitting there and a bunch of tires, and now a white tarp tent has been erected.  This looks like a storage yard to us, does it to you?  This photo was taken Sept 6, 2015.  And apparently there is a property on Hodges Road in Killiney Beach that has been building without a building permit too, which our Director is trying to deal with.

RDCO Zoning Bylaw 871
3.13 Prohibited Uses
1. The following uses are prohibited on parcels that do not contain a dwelling unit, and are located in R or R3 zones:
a) Outdoor storage yard.
b) The parking of recreational or other vehicles.

LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY


Now here is one problem with the Regional District  of Central Okanagan Bylaws.
Notice how close the fence is to the 10 foot wide Easement Road?

There is no bylaw against building your fence right alongside an easement road that is only 10 feet wide on a hill and runs for quite a ways, maybe 200 feet or more.  The RDCO tell us that this is a civil matter for the courts to deal with.  The property on the right owns the easement road and uses the easement road along with several other properties further down (before the photo).  The property with the fence has never once in over 10 years plowed the easement road, in fact one time the easement road was even blocked with a pile of snow and a cement block hiding under the snow and the property claimed it was for their kids.  The property on the left has no use to this easement road other than to visit a neighbor.  The easement does not belong and is not intended to be used by the property on the left.  Why should all the snow be piled on the left when it is the property on the right who owns the easement road?  The property on the right is pretty much telling us how much they don't like us to use the easement road in our opinion.  There should be some bylaw that requires a fence setback to allow for snow accumulation.  This fence is ridiculous, but like the property owner on the right said, they are allowed!!!  Would be nice if the property on the right would leave some place to put the snow!  And it would be nice if the Regional District would put something about this in their bylaw so that some people can't bully the neighbors by using extraordinary measures when one neighbor doesn't like the other neighbors to use their own easement road!  This easement road is listed on several properties land title documents that they have use of this easement road to pass and repass.  One time the property on the right also blocked the easement road and the one neighbor paid to have some work done enough to satisfy the property on the right to unblock the easement road, we were told after we found our address sign at our gate instead of on a tree at the end of the easement road at the top of the hill near the paved public road.  Our address sign was on the left of the easement on the tree originally, but the one neighbor who paid for the work took that tree out to satisfy the neighbor on the right who blocked the easement road, and he left our address sign that was on the tree at our gate, and so we put our address sign on a post we put up on the left of the easement road, but then someone kept knocking the post over and then one day we found the licence plate that belonged to the property on the right wrapped around our address sign post.    The RCMP told us that wasn't enough evidence to convict someone.  One time we found machine tire marks driven at our post, and our post knocked over again, and the neighbor on the right had just rented a machine with the same tire tread.  Another time another neighbor was out for a walk and found our address sign in the ditch all bent up, and brought it to us asking if this was our address sign.  Then our nice metal address sign disappeared completely and we put up a chloroplast sign as shown in the photo, but our post still kept getting knocked over. Our post is still there now but the chloroplast on one side disappeared and we couldn't find it anywhere around there so we think the neighbor once again vandalized our address sign.  Now we are just leaving our address sign like it is, cause the neighbor on the right is such a you know what!!!  So anyway this is the story, its just too bad that people can get away with bullying like they do, and we have authorities who either can do nothing about it, or will do nothing about it!!!

Temporary Use Permit Renewal
The Regional Board has given conditional approval to renew a Temporary Use Permit for up to three years for a medical marijuana production facility proposed for Paradise Valley Drive. The proponent has requested the renewal of the permit (first issued in July 2014) to accommodate Health Canada inspection and licensing of a facility on a 4-hectare parcel in the Trepanier area. The property owner is also in the process of seeking a lot consolidation/boundary adjustment with two adjacent properties in order to meet the 8-hectare minimum parcel size required by the Regional District for medical marijuana production. To receive the Permit the applicant must update the Regional District within six months on the status of issues related to the lot consolidation application and Health Canada license. As well, if the properties are successfully consolidated into one parcel, a Variance application must be approved by the Regional District for building setback requirements.

Secondary Suite Application
The Regional Board has given first reading to a Zoning Amendment bylaw application for a one-hectare property in the 4500 Block of Trepanier Road in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area. The owners intend to develop a legal secondary suite within the proposed single detached house, to replace a house that was destroyed by fire in December 2013. A Public Hearing will be scheduled and advertised.

Temporary Use Permit

8.1 Temporary Use Permit renewal for C. Stowell (owner) to allow a Medical Marihuana Production Facility on the 4.0 ha (9.88 acre) property adjacent to Paradise Valley Drive (TUP-14-01) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated August 17, 2015 outlined the requirement for renewal of a temporary use permit for a 3-year period to allow a medical marihuana production facility. A renewal permit is requested in order to accommodate Health Canada inspection and licensing of the facility, and to complete the associated lot consolidation/boundary adjustment with the two adjoining parcels.
Lot consolidation is 'on hold' until the Health Canada inspection is completed.
An overview of the current building on the site and requirement for lot consolidation was highlighted. A variance will be required for the existing building as it tranverses only slightly into the 30-meter setback requirement.
Once approved the facility will comply with minimum lot size requirement of the RDCO zoning bylaw.
It was noted that the District of Peachland was not consulted on the renewal application. Staff noted that renewal of permits such as this are not referred to the municipalities. This application does not relate to 'fringe area planning' as all
municipalities are now part of electoral area planning. Electoral Area planning decisions are made at the Board table, not at Council tables.
Staff further noted that if Health Canada approved the facility 'tomorrow' renewal of the permit would not be required. The same conditions as the original permit apply to the renewal.

OPHUS/FINDLATER
THAT the decision to renew the Temporary Use Permit (Application TUP-14-01) for C. Stowell be POSTPONED until the District of Peachland Council has been consulted on the permit renewal application.

Item 7.1 Agricultural Land Commission Subdivision Application A15 02 Adjacent To Anderson Road

Purpose:
To obtain Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) approval to allow the landowner to subdivide a 0.4 ha (1 acre) lot from the 6.2 ha (15.27 acre) subject parcel.

Executive Summary:
While not meeting all provisions of the ALC's Homesite Severance on ALR Lands Policy No. 11 (Policy), the owner purchased the property in the 1960's and has farmed the parcel for over 50 years. During this time, the owner has lived on and off of the property. With implementation of conditions and restrictions on the proposed subdivision, impacts on the remaining farm parcel and neighbouring farm operations should be negligible.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT Agricultural Land Commission application A-15-02 (M. Melnichuk - owner/R. Holtby agent) to allow subdivision of a 0.4 ha (1 acre) lot from the 6.2 ha (15.27 acres) parcel is supported subject to:
> Registration of restrictive covenant(s) on the proposed remainder parcel to not allow additional residences and to limit or restrict expansion of the existing home plate;
> Registration of a restrictive covenant on the proposed "homesite severance" lot to advise future purchasers that they may be impacted by normal farm practices;
> Installation of appropriate fencing/landscape buffering as determined by the ALC; and
> The on-site sewage disposal (including provision of a reserve septic field) and the geothermal heating system to be accommodated within the boundaries of the proposed "homesite severance" lot.

Agricultural Land Reserve Appeal
7.1 Application for subdivision in the ALR for M. Melnichuk (owner) B. Holtby (agent) located adjacent to Anderson Road (A-15-02) Central Okanagan East Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)
Staff report dated July 20. 2015 outlined the application for subdivision. The landowner is requesting support from the Regional District to treat the subdivision request under the ALC's Policy as the owner intends to retire on the 0.4 ha lot and sell the remainder of the parcel. Staff outlined the history of the property which was purchased by the family in 1962.
The application does not meet the ALC's policy of a homesite severance as the owner has not continuously lived on the property since purchasing it in 1972.
The owner occupied the property from 1968 to 1979 and then again from 1995 to the present time. The application generally meets the intent and spirit of the ALC's Homesite Severance Policy. The family continues to actively farm the
land.
Staff reviewed the property and the proposed area for the homesite severance.
Photos of the property were highlighted. With the conditions outlined in the
recommendation to the Commission staff believe it meets the intent of the policy.

*Note* Below is only a snippet, please click links above for entire content

Purpose: To seek Board direction to negotiate a new Part 26 Cost Sharing Agreement with the Cities of Kelowna & West Kelowna and the Districts of Peachland and Lake Country.

Executive Summary:
For the 2015 calendar year the cities of Kelowna & West Kelowna and the districts of Peachland and Lake Country opted to be full participants in Regional District Electoral Area Planning Services. RDCO Planning Services staff have recently been meeting with their municipal counterparts and discussing available options for continued participation in Electoral Area
Planning Services including a new Part 26 Cost Sharing Agreement in 2016.

The RDCO member municipalities want to understand their options and the associated processes for full, partial and/or no participation in Electoral Area Planning Services in 2016 and beyond. Of particular interest is a new Part 26 Cost Sharing Agreement in 2016. The nature and complexity of these agreements will depend on the level of interest in geographic area,
voting entitlement and cost apportionment.

Should the Board wish to pursue this matter further a motion authorizing the Chief Administrative Officer to enter negotiations with the cities of Kelowna & West Kelowna and the Districts of Peachland and Lake Country for a new Part 26 Cost Sharing Agreement would be in order. A report back to the Board would be forthcoming.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Board authorize the Chief Administrative Officer to enter negotiations with the cities of Kelowna & West Kelowna and the Districts of Peachland and Lake Country for a new Part 26 Cost Sharing Agreement in accordance with s.804.1 of the Local Government Act.

.pdf icon Item 5.2 Agricultural Land Commission Application A 15 01 Tolko Industries Ltd

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

Purpose:
To obtain Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) approval to allow the 1.07 ha Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) portion of the 7.7 ha property to be excluded from the ALR.

Executive Summary:
Since 1957, the subject property has been owned by logging companies and not used for agricultural purposes. The proposal does not conflict with the Rural Westside OCP Bylaw No. 1274 as the request has been substantiated with the completion of an Agricultural Capability Assessment. Removal of the lands from the ALR will not have a negative impact on environmental values. This application is similar to a past application in the general area also owned by Tolko Industries Ltd. (RDCO File: A-12-03), which was approved by the ALC.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Regional Board supports application A-15-01 for exclusion of a portion of the subject property from the Agricultural Land Reserve pursuant to Section 34 (4) of the Agricultural Land Commission Act.

5.1 Referral Application - Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations - Westbank First Nation (applicant) Ministry File: 34114455 (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated march 26, 2015 outlined a referral application from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) for Westbank First Nation (applicant). The proposed head lease areas are encapsulated by lands with the District of West Kelowna. The head lease areas are deemed to have no impact to any of the Regional District's infrastructure or land use bylaws.

The applicant, Westbank First Nation (WFN), has made application for two separate head leases. The head lease areas extend into Okanagan lake by 300 meters. If approved by the Province, the lease will require WFN to observe, abide by and comply with all applicable laws of any government authority having jurisdiction in any way affecting the use or occupation of the foreshore area or improvements located on the foreshore. Other than the map provided by MFLNRO no additional information was provided to the Regional District.

It was noted that the District of West Kelowna has endorsed the referral from MFLNRO. They note it is good for WFN to have control over their foreshore.

FINDLATER/CARSON
THAT the Regional Board advise the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) that the interests of the Regional District of Central Okanagan are unaffected with respect to issuing a head lease to Westbank First Nation under the Land Act on Okanagan lake foreshore adjacent to 1.R.#9 and 1.R.#10;

There have been no objections received to date. Staff noted that the area for the detached garage should not have been cleared until approval was received but noted that the applicant was unaware of this and is working with staff to address issues.

Chair Given asked if there was anyone in the gallery who deemed their property to be affected by the application.

The recreation trails are intended as intermediate and advanced single-track mountain bike trails that consist of man-made and natural technical features.

These trails represent a well-used and popular trail system that has been utilized for over a decade.

The RDCO previously supported a similar application approximately five years ago but did not proceed due to unresolved technical isssues. FrontCounter has confirmed the current application is similar to the previous one in geographic location and proposed designation under the Act.

The trail system is located in a popular recreation area in the South Slopes. A small portion of the trail system extends into the Okanagan-Similkameen. It is not known if RDOS has been provided with a referral. This would come from FrontCounter BC. It is unknown if the trails are open to the public.

A letter of support was received from the City of Kelowna. As well, City of Kelowna had submitted a letter of support to the Province in late 2014.

OPHUS/HODGE
THAT the applicant be invited to address the Board regarding their application.

CARRIED Unanimously

Justin Derbyshire - president of the Mountain Bikers of the Central Okanagan (MBCO) and Central Okanagan Trail Alliance addressed the Board highlighting:
- There has been some interference with motorized recreation users and mountain bikers. This is not a sole source agreement, it is an agreement to develop the trails. In the future they would like to move to only non-motorized
usage.
- The MBCO cannot limit use of the trails. The area is open to the public as it is Crown lands. Mountain bike specific trails are being developed. In the future may develop trails that are multi-use aspect (non-motorized recreation).
- Outlined the clean-up work the biking community has done (an area known as 5K in the south slopes) and will continue with these efforts as stewards of the land.
- The Board thanked the members on the work they have done in the area.

HANSON/HODGE
THAT Front Counter referral application for the purpose of constructing, rehabilitating and/or maintaining recreational mountain bike trails (indefinite term) under the Forest & Range Practices Act in the vicinity of Gillard Creek (CL-15-03) for Mountain Bikers of the Central Okanagan be conditionally supported subject to:
• Issues and recommendations of other agencies (noted and appended to this report), including the MFLNRO (Resource Management), Environmental Advisory Commission and RDCO staff being addressed prior to issuance of, or applied as conditions to any land tenure approval to construct, rehabilitate and/or maintain recreational mountain bike trails.
• Protection of archaeological sites, inclUding the KVR work camp site;
• Front Counter BC to solicit comment from the Friends of the South Slopes;
• Compliance with all conditions and recommendations of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen.
AND THAT the Community Services Department Report dated March 16, 2015, be forwarded to Front Counter BC's Planning Office for their information and consideration.

Item 6.1 Okanagan Regional Library Population Numbers For Electoral Area Levy

SUBJECT: Population Numbers Used by Okanagan Regional Library for Electoral Area Levy

Purpose: To provide the Board with background information with regard to the 27.255% increase in Electoral Area population counts used in Okanagan Regional Library's (ORL) levy calculation which resulted in a large increase to the levy. Staff from the ORL will be at the March 12th G&S meeting to answer any questions the Board may have. It is hoped ORL will agree to further review the numbers.

Executive Summary:
The ORL allocates its levy to participants over four regional districts based 50% on population and 50% on assessments.
In 2015, the increase in the population counts used for RDCO's Electoral Areas (EAs) varies disproportionately from all other participants across the four regional districts. The average population increase for all participants was 1.98%, or 7,013 (see Table 2). The RDCO's electoral area population increase was 27.255% - from 5,742 to 7,307, a difference of 1,565 people (and is much higher than Kelowna's increase of 3.633%, which seems unlikely). BCAA growth rates indicate 1.12 - 2.88% in the EA's.
This has resulted in a large levy increase from $291,262 in 2014 to $327,748 in 2015. Of the total increase of $36,486, $30,431 relates to the apportionment formula which uses population and assessments, and $6,056 relates to a budget increase.
Population numbers have fluctuated widely over the years, and as a result, it appears the EA's have likely been paying more than their share of the ORL Levy. The RDCO disputed these figures in prior years, and it appeared the issue was resolved in 2014, albeit not retroactively.
Surprisingly, in 2015, the population numbers rose again, along with the levy.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Board request that the ORL review the population numbers now, and for future calculations.

Table 1 below shows the widely fluctuating population numbers used to calculate the funding levy to RDCO for the Electoral Areas in the past. The corresponding tax levies are also shown.
This has caused huge annual tax fluctuations to rural home owners from year to year, as the service area is small. For example, the increase in taxes to the average home in Central Okanagan East 2015 is $11.49, and in Central Okanagan West $6.67.

Year Population ORL Levv
2010 9,804 $345,045
2011 11,284 $384,245
2012 11,899 $404,395
2013 8,458 $340,721
2014 5,742 $291,262
2015 7,307 $327,748

Item 6.2 Technical Rescue Service Proposal District Of West Kelowna

SUBJECT: Technical Rescue Service Proposal- District of West Kelowna

Purpose: To present a Technical Rescue Service Proposal from the District of West Kelowna.

Executive Summary:
On April 28th, 2014 the Board approved the following resolution:

"THAT the Regional Board authorize Brian Reardon, CAO, to enter negotiations with the District of West Kelowna for the provision of Non-Core Regional Rescue Services on the west side of the W. R. Bennett Bridge."

Since that time the District of West Kelowna has trained and equipped its fire department to respond to and provide technical rescue services within its boundaries. Negotiations for the provision of Non-Core Regional Rescue Services in Peachland, on Westbank First Nation Lands and in Central Okanagan West has been ongoing and has recently been completed as evidenced in the letter from the District of West Kelowna's CAO dated February 25th, 2015.

There are numerous benefits to having a fully trained and operational regional rescue team on the west side of Okanagan Lake including faster response times, greater capacity to respond to major events, and avoiding potential traffic delays on the J.R. Bennett Bridge crossing. I am pleased to report that this program is supported at the administrative level by the District of Peachland, Westbank First Nation and the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Committee recommend the Board approve funding a second regional rescue team on the west side of Okanagan Lake starting in 2015;
AND THAT the Committee recommend the Board authorize its signing officers to enter into a five (5) year agreement with the District of West Kelowna for the provision of regional rescue services at a 2015 cost of $46,854.32 with annual increases of 2.5% up to and including 2019.

5.1 Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program (OCCP) update on the Okanagan Biodiversity Conservation Strategy - Presentation by Carol Luttmer, OCCP Coordinator

Staff report dated March 3, 2015 outlined the background of the Okanagan Biodiversity Conservation Strategy (BCS) for the Okanagan region. The Strategy was completed in 2014 and provided a 'big picture' view of the status of regional
biodiversity and highlighted conservation priorities for the future. The OCCP has initiated the implementation and monitoring and provided an overview of the progress towards the BCS vision.

Carol Luttmer provided an overview of the OCCP:
• Formed in 2007, partners signed a statement of cooperation - protecting species at risk and balancing growth with conservation.
• Over 35 partners representing academic, all levels of government and nongovernment organizations.
• Primary role is to facilitate collaboration of resources.
• Last few years focusing on data collection and mapping.
• The Okanagan has 0.8% of the land mass in BC - but has 36% of species at risk.
• Guiding principles include: protect representative core habitat areas; protect habitats characteristic of our region; connect habitat areas; maintain a matrix of lands outside of core areas and corridors; maintain diversity of ecosystems,
species and genetics; look at biodiversity from a regional perspective; share responsibility; and practice precautionary decision-making.
• Strategy outline was reviewed.
• Type of map Decision Tool: conservation ranking, relative biodiversity, wildlife connectivity and land management classes.
• Next steps: work with government and non-government agencies and First Nation to implement the strategy. Main areas to focus on: sharing mapping, education and outreach, collaboration and partnerships will continue (BC Wildlife Federation, Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society, nongovernment business).
• Funding history reviewed: 81% funding comes from grants and foundations.

8.2 Temporary Use Permit for C. Rochemont (owner) to allow the continued operation of a fencing business adjacent to Hwy 33 East. (TUP-14-02) Central Okanagan East Electoral Area (Electoral Areas - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated February 16, 2015 outlined a temporary use permit for All Kinds of Fences for a period of three-years to allow the continued operation of the fencing business adjacent to Highway 33 in the Joe Rich area. There has been no objections to the application from agencies and two letters of support have been received.

The question was raised as the business has been in operation for some time, why is it still considered temporary? At what point in time does it become permanent? Staff noted this is the first temporary use permit that has come forward for renewal. Others applicants have either moved to a new location or rezoned for permanent use. There is no restriction in legislation to allow consideration of multiple temporary use permits and therefore no reason why a permit cannot be requested again. It was further noted that legislation has changed since the first permit was issued. If approved, it would go from this date for a period of three years.
The Chair asked if there was anyone in the gallery who deemed their property affected by the application. There was no-one.

HANSON/CARSON
THAT the Board approve the Temporary Use Permit for C. Rochemont, located at 13502 Hwy 33 East, to permit the continued operation of a seasonal fencing business for three years subject to the following:
• There be no increase or expansion to the existing fencing business footprint;
• Hours of operation restricted to 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays and from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays;
• No buildings, structures, or activity related to the fencing business (including storage of wood preservative compounds) is permitted within 15 metres of the high water mark of Joe Rich Creek;
• No construction of, addition to or alteration of a building or structure; or alteration or clearing of land is to occur within Development Permit Areas as outlined in the Joe Rich Rural Land Use Bylaw No. 1195 without prior approval by RDCO;

7.2 Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 871-226 for Aljac Holdings Company Ltd. c/o /Monashee Surveying and Geomatics to amend the Permitted Uses Table for the RU2 Rural 2 zone, Section 6.2.1 by adding a new subsection 6.2.1.18 - On Lot 1, Plan KAP12705, District Lot 2198, ODYD the following additional use is permitted: 2 seasonal residential dwelling units located adjacent to Kilkenny Place, Westside Road and Okanagan Lake. Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (Z14/06) (Electoral Areas, Kelowna and West Kelowna Fringe Areas)

Director Findlater declared a conflict of interest as he owns property within proximity of the subject property.

Staff report dated January 19, 2015 outlined the zoning amendment to amend the permitted uses. Two seasonal dwellings exist on the subject property, under the current zoning one single detached house is permitted on the parcel. The
applicant has substantiated historic use of the site. The parcel is owned by an incorporated company which consists of two parties.
One single detached house is permitted on the parcel; the second dwelling currently located on the parcel is considered legally non-conforming. The history of the property dates back to the early 1960s.

In discussion, the question was raised whether the Board should consider first reading on the bylaw before the applicant agrees to the covenant limiting the footprint of each building and questioned what 'seasonal residential' means.
Staff noted that should the current structures be destroyed, and if a covenant is not agreed to, the applicant would be allowed to build a larger building on the current footprint but that development permits would be required. The zoning
bylaw does not currently have a definition for 'seasonal residential' but staff were planning to add a definition in a future amendment of the Zoning Bylaw No. 871.

OPHUS/STACK
THAT Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 871-226 for Aljac Holdings Company Ltd. c/o /Monashee Surveying and Geomatics to amend the Permitted Uses Table for the RU2 Rural 2 zone, Section 6.2.1 by adding a new subsection 6.2.1.18 - On Lot 1, Plan KAP12705, District Lot 2198, ODYD the following additional use is permitted: 2 seasonal residential dwelling unit (application Z14/06) be REFERRED back to staff to:
• Confirm prior to bringing forward the zoning amendment for first reading, that the applicant is prepared to place a covenant on title restricting the footprint of any new development to the size of the existing dwellings footprint, and that a
copy of the covenant be provided to the Board when the zoning amendment is brought forward for consideration of first reading;
• Bring forward for approval a definition for 'seasonal residential' prior to any further zoning amendments to Bylaw No. 871 where this definition would apply.

7.2 Report regarding a FrontCounter BC referral application for Transportation - Roadway purposes to designate Crown land for a public road adjacent to Johns Family Nature Conservancy Regional Park (CL-14-04) Central Okanagan East Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated January 5, 2015 outlined a FrontCounter BC referral application to designate Crown land for a public road. The application is to provide public road frontage to allow the adjacent private parcel to be subdivided into two lots under existing zoning. It appears the majority of required road frontage for the subdivision can be accommodated via the private parcel.

As there is a staff recommendation of non-support the Board discussed whether they should hear from the applicant.

FINDLATER/BASRAN
THAT the Regional Board agrees to have the applicant address the Board on his application to FrontCounter BC.

CARRIED Unanimously

Neil Jaud addressed the Board:
• Stated he has owned the property in a partnership with another person for 40 years. Although not subdivided into two lots he stated the agreement with his partner was he had the upper portion, his partner had the lower portion. The intent is that proposed Lot B is his land.
• The partner sold off undivided parcels of land in their section. Now approximately 80 acres is owned by 12 or more separate owners. Those owners either do not live here or live 'off the grid', and are not interested in upgrades (subdivision, roads) to the property, and are not interested in any financial upgrades to the property.
• The application would provide access to what Mr. Jaud's believes is his section of land so he can move forward with subdivision plans.
• Surveys, environment assessments and road design have been completed on his section of the property. Mr. Jaud is now attempting to have legal title for what he considers is his section of the property.
• Mr. Jaud cannot get all the other owners to agree to a road on the private property but does have support for this application by some of the other owners.
• MOTI will not entertain extending Chute Lake Road to this property.
• The applicant believes this is the only avenue to access his portion of the land.
• He owns 50% of entire parcel. If subdivided he would take 100% of proposed lot B.
Discussion:
- Staff prepared to work with the applicant and the Province.
- The reason for staff's non-support of the referral is due to environmental issues.
- Multiple owners of properties is this normal? Staff noted that yes this does occur throughout this and other rural areas in the region. Many were purchased 30-40 years ago.
- One option for all the owners is to consider a panhandle lot. Moving the road on the private property. There are environmental issues in some locations (Lebanon Creek area).
- Are there any different environmental impacts for either proposal-Crown land versus the privately held land? EAC felt there was more sensitivity on the Crown land.
- Placing a road outside the private property is very uncommon.
- Standard of road is a rural standard.
- Cost of road would be borne by applicant.
- This situation is very complex for the applicant.
- There is a lot of history on this property starting during the Okanagan Mountain Park fire in 2003 when it was determined there were people living 'off the grid' in this area.
- Staff looking at this as a simple subdivision. The number of owners does not come into play in considering a subdivision. RDCO does not approve subdivision. The Provincial Approving Officer is the authority to approve subdivision.
- Staff is working with the applicant on any environmental permitting required for the subdivision.
- Staff recommendation may be the right way to go but on compassionate grounds and where the property is located (off the grid) and that it is an impossible task to move forward for the applicant, consideration should be given to support the applicant.
- Whether the road is on private or Crown land the impact to the environment is the same.

FINDLATER/BASRAN
THAT FrontCounter BC referral application for N. & T. Jaud (applicant) for Transportation - Roadway purposes to designate Crown land for a public road adjacent to Johns Family Nature Conservancy Regional Park (CL-14-04) to designate a 1.21 ha portion of Crown land for a public road be supported;
AND FURTHER THAT the Community Services Department report dated January 5, 2015 be forwarded to FrontCounter BC for their information and consideration.

7.3 Report regarding a FrontCounter BC referral application to convert a current License of Occupation to a permanent easement to access private property in the vicinity of June Springs Road (CL-14-05) Central Okanagan East Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated January 6, 2015 outlined a FrontCounter BC referral application to convert a current License of Occupation to a permanent easement for access to a private property. The applicant currently has a License of Occupation with the Province (expires Aug.2021) over the subject Crown land for the purpose of road access from June Springs Road to the land-locked property. It is not anticipated any new land disturbance would be required and conversion to an easement would provide the applicant with permanent access rights to the existing private parcel of land. This is the only access to the private property which has the Myra Canyon Adventure Park located on the property.

HANSON/OPHUS
THAT FrontCounter BC referral application for R. Schoenerr (applicant) to convert a current License of Occupation to a permanent easement to access private property in the vicinity of June Springs Road (CL-14-05) be supported subject to the easement encapsulating the existing developed access;
AND FURTHER THAT the Community Services Department report dated January 6, 2015 be forwarded to FrontCounter BC for their information and consideration.

7.4 Report regarding a FrontCounter BC referral application for License of Occupation (30-year plus term) for a recreational trail on Crown Land in the vicinity of Pincushion Mountain (CL-14-06) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated January 6, 2015 outlined a referral application from FrontCounter BC to permit the Peachland Outdoors Club to construct, rehabilitate or maintain a trail for a 30-year term. The proposed trail is located on Crown land adjacent to the District of Peachland.

The question was raised who will manage or 'police' the trails? The Peachland Outdoors Club is the applicant. Staff noted these are not regional park trails.
RDCO bylaws do not apply to Crown land and RDCO will not oversee the management plan. The Province determines when trails need to be closed for fire hazard, etc.

BAKER/BASRAN
THAT FrontCounter BC referral application for License of Occupation (30-year plus term) for a recreational trail on Crown Land in the Vicinity of Pincushion Mountain (CL14- 06) for the Peachland Outdoors Club to allow construction, rehabilitation or maintenance of a trail for a 30-year term be supported subject to the following conditions:
• Trail to be limited exclusively to non-motorized use;
• Trail signage to be installed to identify trail directions and locations relative to Crown, private and RDCO owned lands, and to identify non-motorized use; and
• Completion of an environmental assessment & management plan for review by RDCO that identifies best management practices and mitigation to ensure that environmental impacts from construction, maintenance, and use of new and
existing trails are minimized. The management plan should also address access to the trail heads, parking, signage, waste management, safety and fire hazards;
• The District of Peachland's conditions outlined in their Council resolution.
AND FURTHER THAT the Community Services Department report of January 6, 2015 be forwarded to FrontCounter BC for their information and consideration.
