Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Planning - About

The Planning and Building Department is organized into three divisions: Long Range Planning, Current Planning and Building. Each division is responsible for various aspects of the planning and development process. These three divisions shepherd development in the City from the broad policy level to establish the framework for development (Long Range Planning) to implementation through conformance with area plans, zoning and subdivision (Current Planning), and to construction and regulatory review and enforcement (Building).
