Blewett mailbox posters misleading

Once again numerous posters have sprouted up on the sides of Canada Post mailboxes in Blewett. (I believe not at all appreciated by Canada Post.)

This most recent poster raises the question: “Do we really need a government body to dictate what someone’s farm or house should look like and where it should be placed?”

Well sir, the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s official community plan has no intention whatsoever to dictate such procedures. Please don’t exaggerate. That statement once again borders on fear mongering.

And finally the author encourages folks to take a look at page 56 saying, “how long will it be … that this discussion will be about zoning?”

Once again (and again), a community plan does not lead to zoning. That process can only be initiated by residents’ petitions for zoning to the RDCK.
