Rural Dividend Funding Application – Multi-Community Indoor Pool Facility Feasibility Study – Council supported the submission of a BC Rural Dividend Program Application under the Single Applicant funding stream sixth intake Community Capacity Building category of $100,000 for a “MultiCommunity Indoor Pool Facility Feasibility Study”. This is a regional initiative that includes the Towns of Osoyoos and Oliver, Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (Areas A and C) and the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB). All governments have expressed an “interest” in exploring the opportunity to develop a multi-community indoor pool facility. The first step for the project is to undertake a feasibility study at a cost of approximately $130,000. Should the application be successful 80% of the costs of the feasibility study would be provided by the BC government.
