These properties are 1.5 hectares in area and while vacant, are in various phases of building single detached homes.

Earlier in May, 2022, the regional district board gave first three readings to the bylaw to include these properties in the fire service area.

The Naramata Volunteer Fire Department has confirmed it can provide service to these poperties at the same level as other addresses in the local service area.

The neighbouring properties in the Kettle Ridge subdivision are already part of the fire service area. Eight of the 37 lots in the subdivision had been excluded in the original subdivision.

The properties are in the Naramata water service area and there is a fire hydrant at the end of Workman Place.
