2.1 Robert Sugden - Peachland Hwy97 Task Force Society Chair re: Update on the progress of the Hwy 97 Task Force
Robert Sugden addressed the Board reviewing the progress of Peachland's Hwy97 Task Force work including:

  • Embarked on drafting Terms of Reference for the Ministry of Transportation guidelines on the Peachland perspective. Indicated the Ministry will fully cooperate with the Society.

  • By May 151 will have a document to present to the Ministry through the District of Peachland Council.

Questions:

  • What is the committee's plan for the current highway, decommissioning? The Society's plan is to see it as a heritage route.

  • When will the Province consider the proposal? There is no word until the Terms of Reference is submitted to the Province.

  • Have you looked at realignment of roads from Peachland to the Highway ie: traffic from the school or IGA? The Ministry has noted that this area does not warrant a traffic light at this time.

  • It is understood that there is a mixed response from the Chamber of Commerce with regards to a bypass. The Society is aware of this and continues to work with the Chamber.

  • The Society indicated it would be willing to make presentation to other Councils if required.
