Overwhelming response to rhythmic gymnastics poll

As of Wednesday morning, the results were 738 yes and 43 no in support of the gym facility

The response to a Morning Star online poll has reached record levels.

On Monday, The Morning Star asked if the Regional District of North Okanagan should allow the Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics club to remain operating in a building on East Vernon Road? As of Wednesday morning, the results were 738 yes and 43 no.

“This is the largest response we have had to date for our online question,” said Glenn Mitchell, managing editor.

“We wish to thank our readers and online users for expressing their opinion.”

RDNO directors are expected to consider a plan today that would legalize the club on East Vernon Road although there is a recommendation to not permit the use because of zoning.

Even if the RDNO board agrees to legalize the facility, final approval for the use must come from the Agricultural Land Commission, which oversees the Agricultural Land Reserve.

The board meeting is at 4 p.m. today at the RDNO board office on Aberdeen Road in Coldstream.
