NOTICE TO ELECTORS OF AN ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS
This notice is the first of two notices to advise electors in the City of Salmon Arm of the intention to adopt City of Salmon Arm Parkland Disposal and Exchange Bylaw No. 4175. The purpose of the bylaw is to exchange Part of Lot 1, Plan 2927, Section 24, Township 20, Range 10, W6M, KDYD, Except Plan 16170 for Part of Lot 3, Plan KAP81689, Section 24, Township 20, Range 10, W6M, KDYD which will be dedicated as park.
 
Civic Addresses: 1890 – 20 Avenue NE and 1830 – 17 Street NE

A copy of Bylaw No. 4175 and a summary of the proposal are available at the City of Salmon Arm offices during each business day of the week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and on the City of Salmon Arm website.

Council proposes to proceed with the land exchange unless, by 4:00 p.m. on April 3, 2017, at least 10 percent of the electors sign an elector response form opposing the Exchange of Park Land unless the municipal council holds a vote.  The number of elector responses required to prevent the City from proceeding unless a vote is held is estimated to be 1,336. A report respecting the basis on which this determination was made is available upon request from the City.

Elector responses are required to be submitted to the City on forms that can be obtained during regular business hours from the City of Salmon Arm offices. The form can also be downloaded from the City’s website. The only elector response forms that will be accepted are the ones provided by the City of Salmon Arm or an accurate copy of the form.

Only electors of the City of Salmon Arm are eligible to sign the elector response forms. There are two types of electors – resident electors and non-resident property electors.

Resident elector: A person who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years of age or older, has resided in British Columbia for at least six months and has resided in the jurisdiction for at least 30 days, and is not disqualified by the Local Government Act, any other Act, or the Courts from voting in a general local election (prior to signing an elector response form during an AAP).

Non-resident property elector: A person who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years of age or older, has resided in British Columbia for at least six months and has owned property in the jurisdiction for at least 30 days, and is not disqualified by the Local Government Act, any other Act, or the Courts from voting in a general local election (prior to signing an elector response form during an AAP).

Note: Only one-non-resident property elector may sign an elector response form per property, regardless of how many people own the property; and, that owner must have the written consent of a majority of the other property owner(s) to sign the response form on their behalf. Property owned in whole or in part with a corporation does not qualify under the non-resident property elector provisions. Resident electors signing the elector response form must provide their name and address. Non-resident property electors must provide their name and the address of the property in relation to which they are entitled to register as a non-resident property elector. The City will not share the information on the form with anyone other than the Corporate Officer, or other person designated by the Corporate Officer.
