RDNO Master Planning Engagement Opportunities

The RDNO would like to extend a personal invitation for your participation in the development of park, recreation, trails and/or natural spaces master plans for areas within the North Okanagan, and an arts and culture master plan for the White Valley area.

The engagement strategy for each of the plans offers four different ways to participate, including: in-person (safe/social distanced) engagement sessions, an on-line survey, an interactive map, and on-location input boards in a number of key, popular parks and trails.

In order to accommodate outdoor engagement opportunities that meet requirements for safe COVID-19 procedures, the in-person engagement sessions will be held next week (August 17 – 20) in outdoor spaces as listed in the attached document. Social distancing and hand sanitization protocols will be in place at each location. You are welcome to attend a session for just one of the master plans, or more than one plan depending on your interest and participation in each community.

We would love to have you join us at the in-person, drop-in engagement sessions if possible, however this is only the kick-off to a much larger engagement process so if you are busy or uncomfortable in this type of setting there are other great opportunities to participate. Watch for the online survey and interactive map to be posted next week at www.rdno.ca/masterplans.

Please let the RDNO know if you have any questions, and I invite you to share this invitation with anyone in your network you feel may be interested.

We look forward to hearing your ideas!
