History on the subdivision development of Regal Ridge on Anarchist Mountain (now called Osoyoos Mountain Estates).
Included are the ESDP and Environmental Reviews/Reports complete with recommendations that guided the sub-division form and location.
Three (3) separate ESDP were pulled and approved by the RDOS. These reports represent the most detailed ‘ground-truthing’ review of any “environmentally sensitive features” with the South Okanagan.
These reports are an interesting read. The highlights are added by the AMCS with respect to important information regarding the current (2017-2021) practice of the RDOS duplicating the ESDP for private landowners on already developed lots in these sub-divisions – subjected to ESDP.
Note: the developer donated 50% of his land for ‘conservation’ yet only 25% of the land was identified as containing ‘environmentally sensitive’ features.
