Summerland Council Seeks Comments on Waterfront Concept Plan – Keremeos Review

The Municipality of Summerland is asking the community to review their draft waterfront concept plan.

The plan, aligned with the council’s strategic priority of active lifestyles, aims to ensure community design and services that enhance inclusive and barrier-free participation and promotion of physical activity and healthy lifestyles, and based on recommendations from the 2018 Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

The plan examines the future of parks, beaches, amenities, swimming and water activities from the Peach Orchard Beach Park boat launch to the south end of Rotary Beach Park, as well as the property located at 16997 Lakeshore Dr., commonly known as Horse Beach.

In March, project consultants gathered initial information through an online survey, workshops and interviews with local organizations and young people.

The municipality is now asking the public to review the draft plan.

The draft document includes key findings from the first round of community engagements, a draft vision, goals and objectives, initial concept drawings for each beach, and proposed key actions.

An open house is scheduled for Thursday, June 16 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Summerland Arena Banquet Hall, 8820 Jubilee Rd. E. Presentation will be at 5:30 p.m.

A public online poll is open until June 26.

This second round of engagement will help finalize the Waterfront Concept Plan which will include recommended improvements, upgrades and future management of these valuable public waterfront parks.
