Regional districts talking transit

Transit will be on the agenda as the Okanagan’s three regional districts get together.

Patrick Nicol, Regional District of North Okanagan chairperson, will meet with his counterparts from the Central Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen today.

“We will look at areas of concern for all three regional districts,” said Nicol.

On Nicol’s agenda, is the growing public demand for transit, particularly between Vernon and Kelowna.

“Kelowna has really increased its bus system and we’ve been methodically trying to improve our system,” he said.

“We also need to look at how revenue is distributed throughout the province.”

Other anticipated topics will be water and air quality.

All three regional districts are participants in the Okanagan Basin Water Board and the Okanagan Film Commission, and Nicol hopes to be brought up to date on what activities are occurring there.

“There are items not centred in RDNO so we’re not as aware of them as we could be if they were here,” he said. “We need to communicate about these functions.”
