Okanagan College Works On Sports Facilty Rebid

Coldstream hopes bid ready for end of the month

6/16/2011

Okanagan College is still ``working on'' a new bid for a big track and field facility on ten acres of land on its Coldstream campus. Dean Jane Lister says consultations continue with the District of Coldstream and other Greater Vernon communities. The Agricultural Land Commission rejected the last bid in April and efforts to put together a winning argument have been going on since then. When asked, Lister was unable to say if a rebid would be ready by the end of June. Coldstream officials and councillors have indicated the matter has taken on some urgency and that it must be submitted to the ALC soon if there's any chance of holding a borrowing referendum during municipal elections in November.
