Proposed Shuswap River Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations

Posted Friday, December 2, 2016

In June 2016, the Shuswap River Boating Regulations, Public Consultation Survey Analysis report was received from Urban Systems. Based on the feedback received and analysis of the survey results, it was clear there are polarized views on the proposed boating regulations. Given the lack of consensus; the Board of Directors passed the following motion “That a consultant be retained to work with the community and local groups, including First Nations, to review options for the entire Shuswap River to foster greater consensus with regard to proposed Shuswap River Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations.”

A Request for Proposals was issued on September 8, 2016 for a second phase of public consultation. The RDNO has now completed an evaluation of the proposals received and are pleased to have Alex Grzybowski of Pacific Resolutions take on the second phase of public consultation for the Proposed Shuswap River Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations.

Stakeholders will be contacted in the coming months and the project is expected to take approximately four months to complete.
