Open house a chance to give feedback

An invitation to look over and comment on the draft Kettle River Management Plan - now two-years in the making.

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary is looking for your ideas to help complete the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan, on June 24 in Greenwood.

For the last two years the stakeholder advisory group has been studying watershed issues, having conversations with the public and other stakeholders, and developing ideas to take care of the Kettle River.

The advisory group is now working towards the completion of a draft watershed plan and would like your feedback on ideas about protecting fish and aquatic ecosystems, improving the quality and reliability of water supplies, and increasing our communities’ capacity as water stewards.

On the afternoon or evening of June 24 in Greenwood, please join the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) and the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan Stakeholder Advisory Group in an open house to learn about and share ideas on the draft plan and next steps towards the plan completion.

Graham Watt, coordinator of the plan for the RDKB, will give an overview presentation at 3:30 p.m. and again at 7 p.m., and members of the stakeholder advisory group and their organizations will be on hand to hear your thoughts and share their perspectives.

“The ideas in these discussion papers and draft plan have been developed based on community input and in-depth discussions by our stakeholder advisory group,” said Watt. “We are sharing the draft with the public now to get some feedback before we finalize the draft plan and circulate it to stakeholders for review this summer. After hearing the feedback, we aim to finalize and launch the plan in September.”

Everyone with an interest in the Kettle River is invited to attend the open house, which will take place in the Greenwood MacArthur Centre (346 S. Copper, behind the Public library). Doors open at 3 p.m. with presentations at 3:30 and 7.
