[ARCHIVED] Electoral Area D Dog Control Survey Complete, Results to Be Analyzed

Dog Control Survey Electoral Area D

Tuesday, February 16, 2021Dog Control Survey Electoral Area D

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) wishes to express appreciation to all the residents of Electoral Area D who took the time to complete the survey regarding dog control options in the area.

The survey ran for one month, and closed on Friday, February 12, 2021. The CSRD is very pleased with the level of community participation, receiving 398 completed surveys.

Now that the survey is closed, CSRD staff will be analyzing all the data and the comments received.

Dog control issues continue to be a source of complaints to the CSRD and the Electoral Area D Director. Currently, a dog control service only applies to the Ranchero area of Electoral Area D. This means if there is a concern in Electoral Area D with aggressive or roaming dogs outside of the Ranchero dog control boundaries, the CSRD has no jurisdiction to act.

Due to Electoral Area D Director Rene Talbot's concerns for public safety, CSRD staff have been directed to provide information and options to the Board for expanding dog control service to all of Electoral Area D in 2022.

In addition to the survey data, over the next few months, staff will also be reviewing financial and operational information about options for dog control services in the area.

Once the analysis is complete, all this information will be brought to the Electoral Area D Director Rene Talbot and the rest of the CSRD Board for discussion at a regularly scheduled meeting. A date for this item to appear on a CSRD Board agenda is still to be determined.

The CSRD recognizes there is a significant public interest in this topic. As such, the CSRD will publicize the date of the Board meeting where dog control will be discussed in advance on our website and social media platforms.

While current public health orders prohibit in-person attendance at meetings, citizens can access the meetings live using the Zoom platform. Recordings of the Board meetings are also made available through the CSRD website for 30 days following the meeting.
