Sign, sign everywhere a sign

Representatives from the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen will host a meeting March 11 in Oliver to discuss issues arising from a proposed clean-up of signage along Highway 97 between Oliver and Osoyoos-US Border.

This particular meeting will focus on signage situated on properties along the Highway 97 corridor south of Oliver, according to Donna Butler, development services manager.

The public meeting to be held at the Oliver Community Centre, between 4 and 7 p.m., will provide an opportunity for business owners and residents to express opinions about the proposed signage clean-up.

Several business owners and residents in the area have stated concerns about the sign removal and the hardship it will create for their businesses, particularly those located away from the highway. Several attended meetings on the matter.

"Information we receive at this public meeting will be returned to the regional district for additional consideration," said Butler.

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure staff are also expected to be in attendance.
