A sign bylaw review is underway in the District of West Kelowna and the municipality is seeking community and stakeholder input as part of the process.

Those wanting to provide feedback are invited to complete a survey, which is now available online at districtofwestkelowna.ca. The deadline to complete the questionnaire is Nov. 12.

Those wanting a paper copy can obtain one at Municipal Hall at 2760 Cameron Road. Completed surveys can be returned to Municipal Hall in person, faxed to 778-797-1001 or scanned and emailed to jaleen.rousseau@districtofwestkelowna.ca.

Input will help shape a draft document that planning staff hopes to present to council for consideration before the end of the year.

The existing bylaw was created in 2000 and serves to regulate the number, size, type, form, appearance and location of signs within the district.

As part of the review process, West Kelowna will be seeking input on issues related to signs and the types of regulations that should be permitted, including: Whether area specific signage is required in parts of the municipality and if digital signage should be permitted under certain circumstances.
