The prospect of motor boat restrictions on the Shuswap River has created divisions.

Shuswap River boat process moves to next stage

RDNO has hired Alex Grzybowski, of Pacific Resolutions, to conduct public consultation

A process looking at a possible boat ban on the Shuswap River is proceeding.

The Regional District of North Okanagan has hired Alex Grzybowski, of Pacific Resolutions, to conduct public consultation for the proposed river vessel operating restriction regulations.

“Stakeholders will be contacted in the coming months and the project is expected to take about four months to complete,” states a release.

The RDNO board decided to pursue more consultation after a survey indicated polarized views in the community about boating rules.

Grzybowski will work with the community to review options for the entire Shuswap River to foster consensus over possible restrictions on power boats.
