The Similkameen Valley Planning Society is seeking input from residents of the Similkameen Valley with respect to the Similkameen Watershed Plan.

A public meeting is being organized for October 7 at Victory Hall following the release of an interim report providing details of the watershed study’s first phase.

The SVPS plans to host two open houses – one  in Princeton and one in Keremeos – in October to present the study’s results to date and seek questions and participation from valley residents.

 

“We are holding these meetings in order to ensure our efforts continue to reflect the values of residents of the Similkameen,” said SVPS Chair Manfred Bauer.

“We invite the public to see what has been accomplished so far, and offer their views.”

 

“The public meetings will provide local residents with an opportunity to get involved and engaged in the process,” said Andrew Stuckey, communications consultant for the watershed study.

 

“All  governments and local agencies are working together to move the study forward,” Stuckey  added, “the SVPS will present the findings to date with a view towards gathering names of individuals interested in participating in the project.”

Stuckey said the information regarding the study’s first phase and next steps will be conveyed through an overhead presentation and banner displays at Victory Hall.

 

The Keremeos meeting takes place October 7 at Victory Hall from 6:30 to 8:30  p.m. The Princeton meeting is scheduled for October 9 at the Princeton Skills Centre from 6:30  to 9:30 p.m.
