The City of Vernon will be developing four public access sites on Okanagan Lake next year.
Two of the sites are on Tronson Road, with others on Lakeshore and Okanagan Landing roads.
Councillor Juliette Cunningham says several other sites won’t be developed, but people will still be able to use them.
“It’s not that were not going to do anything there, but were not gong to develop them to the level staff recommended. But there will be signage and there will be some cleanup done on them.”
Cunningham says the money saved will go into existing lake shore sites, including Camp Hurlburt, to speed up development on those.
“On all of them we’re putting signage that is visible from the lake, so if people who are kayaking or motor-boating can see they can dock there and that it’s a public site.”
Mayor Akbal Mund says council took a tour of the sites and decided which ones would be better to proceed with — or not.
“Council thought about which ones would we think would be used a lot, which ones wouldn’t be, and which ones may cost a lot more than other ones to do?” says Mund.
