Yard Refuse Disposal Saturday Oct 3 – OMEI Wapiti Pit 10:00am to 12:00pm

THIS IS THE FINAL DROP OFF FOR 2020

We would like to thank Ron Palmer and Osoyoos Mountain Estates for working with us to find a location to collect yard refuse.

The site is to be used for the disposal of materials to aid in FireSmarting your property. Last weekend large rocks had been dropped off and this is a safety issue if struck by a vehicle or tractor.

Examples of materials accepted are:

Grass, leaves, needles etc.
Brush, branches etc.
Please Note:

Items being brought in bags, boxes, etc. are to be emptied and the containers taken away.
NO construction debris is to be brought in.
Any abuse of the site will result in its immediate closure.
A member of AMCS/FireSmart committee will open and close the site and also monitor the origin and material coming into the site.

The hours of operation are 10:00am to 12:00pm. The site is located on Wapiti. Turn onto Wapiti and take the first road to the right.

Protocol for running the pit this year will be:

1. Have a single lane of traffic with occupants remaining in vehicle until entry into pit.

2. Allow only 3 vehicles in the pit at a time, when drivers exit they must social distance from each other.

3. We will be asking people to provide their name and address which we will now write down ourselves.

Pink Zone (ESDP) Update

Hello Director Mark Pendergraft,

I understand your motion:      

“a. Director’s Motion – Director Pendergraft
THAT the RDOS Board apply environmentally sensitive development permits (ESDPs) throughout the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen to only Subdivisions and rezonings; and further,
THAT Staff report back to the Board on the options to make ESDPs more effective throughout the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen at Subdivisions and rezonings; and further,
THAT ESDPs should in no way prevent or discourage residents of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen from firesmarting their properties according to the firesmart principles.”

passed with unanimous support in favour by the RDOS Board of Directors. Thank you for all the time and energy you have put into representing us in Area “A.”

As president of the AMCS, I have been receiving a lot of emails and concerns from people who have tried communicating with RDOS staff concerning building on their properties up here since this motion was voted on.  My husband and I visited the RDOS office last week asking about a permit to build a shop on our property and I learned from the staff that it takes 4-6 months before bylaw changes go through. RDOS is still requiring the ESDP (environmentally sensitive development permit) be done before a building permit can be applied for.  We mentioned we had heard the ESDP was being moved off private property and I got the impression that they were not aware of this motion.

Monday we attended the OCP Open House at the Sonora Centre. Chris Garrish did not seem aware of your motion, so I read it aloud and he stated it was probably a “Notice of Motion” and he listed all the steps it would still have to go through.
I have obtained over 160 signatures from Anarchist Mountain residents (not just members of AMCS) who do not agree with the pink zone restrictions imposed by the RDOS. If these signatures would help you in any way pushing this motion through, I can send them to you either digitally or bring you the hardcopies.  

The wildfire risk is the most important concern for private property owners in our area so the conflicts arising between the “pink zone” requirements and FireSmarting need to be resolved immediately as is proven by the Christie Mountain Fire.  Does the RDOS want to be responsible for the cost of devastation caused by a wildfire

Jamie V Wright
President, AMCS
