Regional District Board of Directors

The Regional Board meets in a regular session twice a month, managing the wide range of issues that arise as part of local governance. 

The 12 member Board represents the two electoral areas of the Regional District (Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West) and the member municipalities of Kelowna, Peachland, Lake Country and West Kelowna.  An additional non-voting member is appointed to represent Westbank First Nation.

Every four years, two Directors are elected: one to represent the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area and one representing the residents of the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.

Based on population, the City of Kelowna appoints six representatives to the Regional Board from among its elected Council members. The City of West Kelowna appoints two representatives to the Regional Board from among its elected Council.  The District of Lake Country and the District of Peachland each appoint one of their Council members to the Regional Board.  The Westbank First Nation Council also appoints a representative to the Regional Board in a non-voting capacity.  ( Detailed Map)

In 2016 the Regional Board adopted the Regional District of Central Okanagan Strategic Priorities Plan 2015 - 2018

In 2006, the Regional Board commissioned former Administrator A. T. Harrison to chronicle a history of the Regional District of Central Okanagan.  In early 2007, the Board received the 64-page work titled: 'A Look Into The Past - A Historical Review 1967 - 2006'
