Skaha Bluffs Area Boundary Extension Application

Consultation has concluded

Is it good for Penticton?

A request to bring a 300-acre, privately-owned parcel into city limits is the first step towards the addition of 180 new homes to our housing inventory along with the opportunity to increase the size of the Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park by 150 acres. After several years of planning and community involvement, the City has applied to the Province for a boundary extension to annex the privately-owned parcel on the south end of the city between the Wiltse area and the Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park.

In British Columbia, all requests to annex land into a municipal boundary must have approval of the community. To determine if the community supports this application to extend our boundaries, the City is using the Alternative Approval Process. Under this process, residents who oppose the application have 30 days to complete a petition and submit it to City Hall. If more than 10% of the electorate oppose, a referendum is required before the application can proceed. Residents who support the project do not need to complete a petition. The petition form is available at City Hall or here. The Alternative Approval Process is underway now and will run until Nov. 15. Ask questions or share your feedback here. Be sure to attend one of the public events to learn more.
