One rural Enderby community has a blueprint in place for long-term land uses.

The Regional District of North Okanagan board adopted the new local area plan for Kingfisher Wednesday.

“I hope it will alleviate some of the concerns multiplying over the years,” said Jackie Pearase, rural Enderby director.

The plan has 52 recommendations regarding the environment, peak season use/management, infrastructure, emergency planning, future land use, residential and commercial policies, and park land.
