RDEK

The RDEK’s Yellow Bin Recycling Program has been renewed for another five years.

The RDEK Board Highlights for October include a New Official Community Plan for Lake Windermere, the Mission Road and Hwy 95A Intersection Project, Two New Parks to Become Part of Regional Parks Plan and more.

South Country firefighters remain on the scene of an overnight fire on a rural property on Rosicky Road near Jaffray and are now expecting it could be several days before the fire is fully extinguished.

The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) is introducing a new Evacuation Notification System (ENS) powered by Voyent Alert! to keep residents and property owners informed in case of evacuation orders or alerts during critical events such as wildfires, floods or hazardous materials incidents.

The RDEK Board of Directors has established a series of organizational goals as the first step in the creation of a new Strategic Plan for the corporation.

Moyie and Area Official Community Plan
The planning process for a new Official Community Plan (OCP) for the Moyie Area is nearing completion. The Moyie and Area OCP bylaw was given first and second reading by the Board and will be the subject of public hearing to be held at the Moyie Community Hall on May 21st at 7pm. The OCP is a long range planning document used to guide land use change in the area and it will replace the Moyie and Area Land Use Bylaw which was adopted in 2008.

The RDEK has just released a second survey as part of its Solid Waste Management Plan Review, and is now encouraging the public to participate.
