First RDNO multi-service open house a success

Solid Waste Management Plan feedback still sought

The Regional District of North Okanagan hosted their first multi-service open house at the Vernon Regional Library April 11, bringing in more than 180 residents to provide feedback on upcoming initiatives.

Residents had the opportunity to engage with staff and provide input on options presented in the draft Solid Waste Management Plan Update, as well as the draft Open Space and Trails Policy (including the Rail Trail). Other services were also present providing residents with information on Recreation and Culture, Emergency Management, Safe Communities and Water Utilities services.
