Cunningham back as GVAC chairperson

Juliette Cunningham was acclaimed as chairperson while Jim Garlick was selected vice-chairperson.

There will be no changes at the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee for the coming year.

On Thursday, Vernon director Juliette Cunningham was acclaimed as chairperson while Coldstream director Jim Garlick was  selected vice-chairperson.

Cunningham expects the regional district committee will have a busy schedule in 2016.

“We are trying to finalize the master cultural plan and we’re looking at the master water plan,” she said.

“Those are significant issues and there are always issues that arise.”

No action taken

Greater Vernon politicians are not endorsing or opposing plans for an amphitheatre in Coldstream.

A recent presentation for the proposed Okanagan College/Okanagan Summer Festival facility was simply received for information by members of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee Thursday.

Advocates for the amphitheatre are not seeking local taxpayer funds to construct the facility.
