We the undersigned ,

Call for the preservation of the Oyama waterfront, which is part of the proposed Oyama Isthmus Park.

We wish for the local government to reconsider the newly released concept design in favour of a less invasive approach to the establishment of a new park in the District of Lake Country.

We understand that said design is still being reviewed and is subject to the public survey, but would like to further bring attention to the Municipal Council about public concern over said development.

Therefore we ask for the area from the high water mark of the Oyama waterfront to the boundary of the Okanagan Rail trail to remain natural and untouched by any future development of said park in the final design.

In doing so we intend to preserve the natural beauty and unique identity of this public beach for future generations to enjoy.

We believe there is no need to alter this waterfront that locals and tourists have been enjoying in the current state for years.

At the same time we appreciate the plans to improve the existing infrastructure in the area, especially parking, public toilets, and change rooms.

This waterfront is already a valuable natural corridor and an asset to the historical beauty of the Okanagan Rail Trail. It has always been a vital aspect to the rural charm that has attracted residents and visitors alike to this beautiful community for generations.
