Remember: if you are putting out garbage the night before pick-up, or only using bags for garbage, this is for you. If you think the cart is too large to manage, note that it can be left near the road, and garbage brought to the cart before pick up. If bears get into unsecured garbage or other attractants, you run the risk of a visit from the Conservation Officer. Protect yourselves, your community and the mountain’s wildlife.
We are pleased to invite you to attend the 6th webinar in our “Unpacking The Guide” series entitled “Invasive Species in the Okanagan” happening from 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28th. Join our experts to learn about steps we can all take as responsible property owners to prevent the introduction and spread of terrestrial and aquatic invasive species. Our speakers include:
· Invasive Plants by Lisa Scott, Executive Director, Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society.
· Invasive Insects by Susanna Acheampong, Entomologist, Plan and Animal Health Branch, BC Ministry of Agriculture.
The B.C. provincial election is on Saturday, October 24, 2020 and Elections BC wants to ensure that all eligible voters in British Columbia have the information they need to vote. Voting in this election will be different because of the COVID-19 pandemic.Elections BC has been working with the Office of the Provincial Health Officer to ensure the voting process is safe and accessible.
Garbage is the #1 attractant to bears in our community and can lead to conflicts with people. In order to keep residents and bears safe, it is important to secure garbage in a bear resistant enclosure. Anarchist Mountain Bear Aware has secured very good pricing on Rollins Bear Resistant Garbage Carts (65 US Gal). A group order will be going in and it is highly recommended that all residents consider this investment. This will deter bear activity around garbage, especially if the cart has to be left outside. These garbage carts are suitable for waste collection pick up in our area.
If you would like to order one (or more) of these, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.

“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
