Considering a project on or near the water?

OROVILLE – The City of Oroville is inviting people who are considering a project near or on the water to the Oroville City Hall Aug. 20 between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to find out what kind of activity or development is allowed, and what permitting may be required.

“You may also find that there are a number of activities that are exempt from the permitting process,” said Chris Branch, director of Community Development for the city.

The Oroville Planning Commission also wants to share some of the changes being considered in a recent draft of the Shoreline Management Plan, and has invited other regulatory agencies to share information about their management programs relative to Lake Osoyoos, the Okanogan and Similkameen rivers, and their local tributaries.

“This is a casual ‘open house’ style workshop designed to share information about existing regulations and proposed updates.

City Hall is located at 1308 Ironwood. Those with questions about this upcoming workshop are encouraged to contact Branch at 509-560-3535, or e-mail him at chrisb.oroville@nvinet.com. Persons with special needs, including access and language assistance, should call or e-mail to make arrangements for accommodations.
