RDOS rethinking cycle trail proposal

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen is having a sober second thought on a proposed bike link between Penticton and Summerland along Highway 97.

The board reversed an earlier decision and will give some consideration into a four-way split on the cost of a $110,000 master plan.

But they also haven’t said yes.

The B.C. government proposes a study on a multi-use trail linking Trout Creek to Penticton with the cost being shared by the province, City of Penticton, RDOS and District of Summerland.

RDOS says no to lakeside trail from Penticton to Summerland

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen has politely declined participation in a four-party master plan for a bike link between Penticton and Summerland along Highway 97.

The B.C. government proposed a study on a multi-use trail linking Trout Creek to Penticton with the cost being shared by the province, City of Penticton, RDOS and District of Summerland.

The master plan would cost $110,000, with each partner's share being $27,500. If approved, the trail would cost around $7.8 million.
