The public is invited to a consultation at the Oliver Community Centre on Wednesday, Dec. 12 on proposed boundary changes to Inkaneep Provincial Park.
The proposal is to create a new secondary access road to the Senkulmen Business Park located on the Osoyoos Indian Reserve and the proposed Okanagan Correctional Centre. Total park land required for the road project is estimated at approximately 0.28 hectares.
As a potential mitigation measure for the boundary modification, it is proposed to add approximately 0.85 hectares in other areas of the park.
Proposals to amend the boundaries of provincial parks are reviewed under the Provincial Protected Areas Boundary Adjustment Policy, Process and Guidelines, which can be found here:http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/planning/bound_adj_policy.html
