AFFIRMATIONS OF OFFICE:
Her Honour Madame Justice Hope Hyslop, Judge of the Supreme Court,
received the Declaration and Oath of Office of Mayor-Elect Milobar.
Judge Hyslop then received the Declarations and Oaths of Office of the
Councillors-Elect.
4.
ADDRESS OF HONOURABLE MADAME JUSTICE HOPE HYSLOP:
Thanked Council for the privilege to administer the oaths of office and to
acknowledge those who were not elected; their contribution is important
and essential to a democratic system.
Acknowledged the number of people running for office this last election
which confirms that people in the City of Kamloops are interested in civic
politics. Hopes that those people who ran and were not elected will
continue with their interest in the issues and events that face our Mayor
and the newly elected City Council.
The right to vote is essential to a free and democratic system, this was
demonstrated by each elected official when they let their name stand for
public office. Running for office requires a huge individual commitment, a
thick skin when at times the debate becomes heated and probing as the
issues are debated, as well as a considerable amount of time.
Mayor and Council are elected to provide leadership by making decisions
that balance valid and competing interests. This is often a difficult task.
Elected Officials are required to consider all points of view and to keep an
open mind in order to lead the public. The decisions made by Council will
not satisfy everyone and the manner of approach to a decision will garner
the support of those who oppose the decision.

More than any other level of government, municipal governments affect the
day to day lives of people. Council is very accessible to the citizens of
Kamloops, which often requires patience and the best of listening skills.
Wished newly elected Council members luck in their endeavours.
5.
ADDRESS OF MAYOR P. G. MILOBAR:
Mayor Milobar welcomed everyone to the Inaugural Meeting of Kamloops
Council. Acknowledged traditional territory of the Secwepemc people and
members of Tk'emlups Council in attendance: Chief Shane Gottfriedson,
Councillors Katy Gottfriedson, Ed Jensen, Richard Jules, Fred Seymour
and Colleen Mosterd-McLean. Also welcomed Freeman of the City
Ambo Dhaliwal, Hon. Col. Terry Shupe, Former Mayor and Freeman of the
City Cliff Branchflower, former Mayor Hon. Terry Lake, Hon. Todd Stone,
and representing the Thompson-Nicola Regional District former Mayor
Mel Rothenberger and Ken Gillis.
Reflected on the changed role for Elected Officials in regards to public
expectations. Technology has changed the job, added to the job, and has
made the job easier and more accessible. As a member of Council, each
individual is responsible for managing the pressure of a citizen's want,
desire and need, as well as balancing varying opinions. The role of Elected
Officials has become very complex, because each wants to make sure that
the city grows and prospers to the best of their ability.
Over the next four years, the expectation from the public will be to get a lot
more done. After meeting with each Council member, believes that there is
a will to work together for the betterment of the community. There will be
controversial items, and when a topic arises that is near and dear to the
public’s heart, affecting their day to day lives, they are going to let Council
know about it. Mayor Milobar urged Council members to work together on
95% of the items they will agree on rather than dwelling on the 5% that they
disagree on. Each elected member of Council lives in Kamloops by choice,
have family in this city, and all want to see Kamloops be the best it can
possibly be.
It will be a very exciting four year term, from health care, to performing arts,
to North Shore development and downtown initiatives, and neighbourhood
plans. A strategic plan will be developed by Council in the coming months
to expand on these ideas further. The river between the North and South
Shores of Kamloops doesn’t mean we can’t work cooperatively and
productively together to make sure that all citizens in this valley prosper
and have great opportunities for themselves and their families.
Recognized those in attendance at this inaugural meeting as supporters of
individual Council members, who have helped along the way and thanked
them for the time commitment to be a support.

REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING SERVICES DEPARTMENT
ON
REZONING APPLICATION NO. REZ00541
DEVELOPMENT VARIANCE PERMIT APPLICATION NO. DVP00440
3239 SCHUBERT ROAD
OWNER/APPLICANT: GREG POWER
PURPOSE
To rezone the subject property from RT-2 (Two Family Residential-2) to RS-1 (Single Family
Residential-1) and RS-1S (Single Family Residential - Suite), and to issue a Development
Variance Permit reducing the minimum lot street frontage required in the RS-1 zone from 15 m
to 6 m to facilitate a panhandle subdivision.
SUMMARY
The subject property is located in the Westsyde neighbourhood, is zoned RT-2 (Two Family
Residential-2), and is 1,946 m2 in area. The property is bordered by Schubert Road and the
North Thompson River, with two residential lots located adjacent to the south property line and
one large residential lot to the north. The neighbourhood comprises a mix of single- and
two-family dwellings, as permitted in the RT-2 zone, as well as a mix of standard and panhandle
subdivision layouts. The property contains a single-family dwelling and three accessory
buildings. Transit, schools, and the Westsyde Shopping Centre are less than 1 km from the
subject property.
The applicant proposes to subdivide the existing lot by creating one new lot at the front of the
property (Lot A) and one panhandle lot at the rear of the lot, as detailed on Attachment "A". The
applicant proposes to rezone the new lot (Lot A) from RT-2 (Two Family Residential-2) to
RS-1S (Single Family Residential - Suite) to facilitate the subdivision of a lot with a parcel area
of 464 m2 while maintaining the potential to construct a new single-family dwelling with a suite.
The proposal must comply with the parking requirements for single-family dwellings with
secondary suites, which is three unstacked parking spaces, and must maintain a minimum 40%
of the front yard as landscaping. These regulations will be implemented at the Building Permit
stage if the applications are approved.
In conjunction with the rezoning of proposed Lot A, the applicant must rezone the proposed
panhandle lot containing the existing single-family dwelling and three accessory buildings from
RT-2 (Two Family Residential-2) to RS-1 (Single Family Residential-1), as two-family dwellings
and/or secondary suites are not permitted on panhandle lots. The existing accessory buildings
will be required to be removed or relocated as a condition of subdivision to ensure compliance
with the minimum front and side yard setbacks in the RS-1 zone.

REZONING APPLICATION NO. REZ00541
DEVELOPMENT VARIANCE PERMIT APPLICATION NO. DVP00440
December 10, 2014
Page 2
A Development Variance Permit application has also been submitted to reduce the minimum
permitted street lot frontage in the RS-1 zone from 15 m to 6 m to facilitate the subdivision of the
panhandle lot (Attachment "A").
KAMPLAN designates the subject property as Urban. In accordance with KAMPLAN, the City
will consider residential development proposals within Urban areas to encourage infill,
intensification, redevelopment, and cost-effectiveness. The proposed new lot (Lot A) is
consistent with the general criteria for evaluating the location for secondary suites outlined in
KAMPLAN; however, the flood plain elevation and parking requirements will be required to be
satisfied at the Building Permit stage.
The subject property is located within the Westsyde Neighbourhood Plan, which encourages
infill development and the full utilization of existing and new service capacity prior to peripheral
expansion, provided the existing neighbourhood character is not compromised. Given the siting
of the existing dwelling and surrounding dwelling units, staff believe that the proposed
development can be sensitively integrated into the existing neighbourhood.
The North Thompson River is located within 30 m of the subject property; therefore, it is a
designated Riparian Areas Regulation Development Permit Area. The applicant has had a
Riparian Area assessment completed by a qualified environmental professional and filed with
the Ministry of Environment. No significant concerns were noted in the report. Should the
applications be approved, staff will work with the applicant through the Development Permit
process in accordance with the authority delegated to the Planning and Development Manager.
The Development and Engineering Services Department supports the proposed rezoning and
Development Variance Permit as the proposed development complies with the land use policies
outlined in KAMPLAN and the Westsyde Neighbourhood Plan. It should be noted that under the
current RT-2 zoning, the applicant could add an additional dwelling unit or the development of a
duplex, making a total of two units. This proposal would see the addition of one more unit
should the new owner decide to install the secondary suite on the proposed RS-1S lot. As a
result, the Development and Engineering Services Department supports these applications and
advises Council to proceed as outlined in the recommendation.
RECOMMENDATION:
That Council authorize:
a)
A Public Hearing to consider rezoning Lot 4, Sec. 7, Twp. 21,
Rge. 17, W6M, K.D.Y.D., Plan 17970, Except Plans E8397 and 19578

COUNCIL REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE PARKS, RECREATION, AND CULTURAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT
ON
BC WILDLIFE PARK KERMODE BEAR HABITAT PROJECT UPDATE
PURPOSE
To provide Council with an update regarding the new Kermode bear habitat project, located at
the BC Wildlife Park (BCWP) at 9077 Dallas Drive. The City is investing $400,000 from gaming
reserves in this project - $250,000 in 2014 and $150,000 in 2015.
SUMMARY
The BCWP received care of Clover, a Kermode bear, in October 2012, from the BC Ministry of
Environment (MOE) via the Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter (Northern Lights), located in
Smithers, BC. Kermode bears are considered to be one of the rarest types of bear in the world.
Clover was orphaned in 2011 and began to seek human company. Although Northern Lights
and the MOE made their best efforts to rehabilitate him, it was determined he would not likely
survive outside of captivity. Since his arrival at the BCWP, Clover has been cared for in a
temporary habitat and is in very good health.
In 2013, the BCWP began a fundraising effort to create a world-class habitat for Clover. This
new habitat is 2.8 ac. and will be built to exceed the standards of care outlined by Canada's
Accredited Zoos and Aquariums. The overall budget for the project is $750,000. Funding
partners have been confirmed and construction began in 2014, with Phase One 95% complete
(Attachment "A").
Phase One consists of a denning and housing building, natural vegetation, a 10 ft. chain-link
fence, two large ponds, a rock bed creek between the ponds, and split-rail fencing for public
pathways. Phase One also includes the cost to relocate habitat fencing for the elk that formerly
occupied that space.
Phase Two will be completed in 2015 and includes an interpretive centre for guests to learn
about the bear's natural habitat and conservation. A raised viewing platform with 30 ft. of glass
will be completed and will include a 100 ft. elevated walkway for park guests to enjoy
unobstructed viewing of the bear habitat.
The BCWP's staff plan on introducing Clover to his new habitat in the spring. He is currently
denning for the winter in his temporary holding area.
The BCWP and Tourism Kamloops have received numerous inquiries from the international
group tour travel market, and plans are in place to host these coach tours on a regular basis in
2015. There is also considerable local and regional interest in seeing the bear in his new
habitat.

Kermode Bear Habitat Project
Progress Report
November 2014
35
Summary:
The new Kermode Bear Habitat project at the BC Wildlife Park is to provide a
world class habitat for one of the rarest Bears in the world. The project will be
completed to two phases over an 18 month period, with the first phase being
completed in the fall of 2014 and the second phase to be completed in summer of
2015.
Scope of work phases:
Phase one;
Will include a cement denning and housing building with five separate holding
areas to house up to four Bears. Attached to the housing building will be two
enclosed outdoor holding areas. The new habitat will be 2.8 acres in size, have
plenty of natural vegetation and some planted shrubs that will be irrigated (in
phase two) and be enclosed with 10 high chain link fence and include two large
ponds and a rock bed creek between the ponds. The fencing will have hotwires
attached for safety and the public viewing will be from a raised Ready Rock
platform with thirty feet of one inch safety glass.
To make room for the project, phase one will also include the relocation of
habitat fencing for the Elk and the relocation of our public pathways.
Phase two;
Will include an Interpretive Centre for guests to learn about natural Bear habitat
and conservation, including being Bear Aware and the relationships with First
Nations. A second raised Ready Rock viewing platform with thirty feet of glass
will be added, as well as 100 feet of elevated walkway for our guests to have
unobstructed viewing of the Bear Habitat and have access to view and learn
about the BC Wildlife Parks Burrowing Owl Conservation Program.
Status of Phase one:
Although there is still some work to complete on phase one, 95% is complete and
to a point whereas the Kermode Bear could be moved to his new home to den for
36
the winter. However, he has shown signs of slowing down and has a reduced
appetite to getting ready to den up for the winter, so he will be den in his current
holding area and be moved to the New Habitat in the spring when he awakes. The
decision was to not put the Bear in any harm with sedation with a reduced
metabolism and heart rate during this time of year.
Long Term Plan for Bears at the Park
The completion of this new much larger Habitat will allow us to relocate the two
female Black Bears, and one male Black Bear currently in our smaller Black Bear
habitat over with Clover. The current Black Bear habitat and denning building was
simply too small to house four adult bears and definitely not suitable for two male
bears as there is a risk of injury due to crowding. This introduction will be done in
two steps, first, one female will be introduced to Clover and once they have
settled in and bonded, we will then introduce the other female and male.
Once all four Black Bears are relocated, this will also allow us to relocate the
Grizzly Bears to the back of the Park after a few modifications are made to the
smaller Black Bear Habitat. The habitat the Grizzlies are currently in is not suitable
for the long term and as the Grizzlies grow they will require a more secure habitat
and one they will not out grow.
With all our Bears in Habitats that more natural and spacious, we can add or
move an animal species more suited to the habitat vacated by the Grizzlies.

Budget:
The overall budget for the project will be $750,000 with $405,000 allocated to
Phase one, and $345,000 allocated to Phase two.

REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE PUBLIC WORKS AND UTILITIES DEPARTMENT
ON
2015 EARLY CAPITAL APPROVAL
PURPOSE
To seek Council's approval for a portion of the 2015 and 2016 Capital Improvement Program
(CIP) budget.
SUMMARY
Every year, Administration seeks Council's approval to spend a portion of the annual CIP prior
to final budget adoption in May. Early approval enables Administration to begin design work
and procure contractors throughout the winter, and allows construction to start as soon as the
weather permits in spring. Early approval also provides access to tool and equipment budgets
that are often needed in the first quarter to prepare for the year ahead, as well as enough time
to procure equipment that has long delivery times.
This year, Administration is requesting early approval for 15.7% of the proposed 2015 CIP
budget, which makes up 46.0% of the required tax funds, as outlined in Attachment "A".
Further, Administration is seeking early approval of the 2016 vehicle and equipment
replacement budget. This budget is strictly funded from the Equipment Reserve Fund.
Water, sewer, and solid waste projects are not included in this list, as they are approved by
Council separately when the utility rates are set.
RECOMMENDATION:
That Council authorize Administration to begin implementing the
2015 and 2016 Capital Improvement Programs, as outlined in
Attachment "A".
COUNCIL POLICY
There is no applicable Council policy.

Page 2
FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The total of the 2015 early capital requests listed in Attachment "A" is over $7.5 million, of which
$3.9 million will be funded through property tax revenue. A further $4.6 million in property tax
revenue will be required to fund the remainder of the 2015 CIP, which will be deliberated further
during the budget process.
The total of 2016 capital projects listed in Attachment "A" is $5.1 million and will be funded
entirely through the equipment reserve fund.

REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE PUBLIC WORKS AND UTILITIES DEPARTMENT
ON
TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE EXPANSION PROJECT
PURPOSE
To provide Council with information on the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP)
and its potential impacts to the City, and to seek Council's support for staff to submit written
information requests to the National Energy Board (NEB) as part of the official hearing schedule
for the proposed project.
SUMMARY
Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC (Trans Mountain) has applied to the NEB. If approved, Trans
Mountain will be issued a certificate permitting Trans Mountain to construct and operate the
proposed TMEP, which will include:
•
•
•
•
Increasing the capacity of the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline (TMPL) system from
approximately 300,000 barrels of crude oil per day (bbl/d) to approximately
890,000 bbl/d;
Constructing approximately 990 km of new pipeline along much of the pre-existing TMPL
system corridor;
Increasing the overall pumping and storage capacity of the TMPL system; and
Enhancing the export capacity of the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, BC.
To secure this certificate, a comprehensive environmental and socio-economic assessment and
public hearing are required as part of the NEB regulatory process. If a certificate is issued,
Trans Mountain intends to initiate construction in 2016 and go into service in 2018.
The existing pipeline and the proposed expansion project bisect Kamloops, as shown in
Attachment "A". The proposed expansion would see approximately 29 km of 36 in. diameter
pipe constructed within City boundaries. Additionally, Trans Mountain intends to upgrade the
existing Kamloops pump station, which is located in the southwest area of Kamloops
(2355 Trans Canada Highway).
Trans Mountain has identified Kamloops as an important "construction hub" for the proposed
project. As such, the construction and operation of such a pipeline present a number of
questions pertaining to community infrastructure, the delivery of City services, and overall
impacts to the environmental and socio-economic well-being of the community.

RECOMMENDATION:
That Council authorize staff to act upon the City's status as an
intervenor for the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion Project and
submit a written request for information to the National Energy Board
prior to the January 9, 2015, deadline; the request will outline the key
concerns and inquiries that are of greatest interest to the City with
respect to the proposed project.
COUNCIL POLICY
There is no applicable Council policy.
DISCUSSION
The proposed TMEP will include approximately 29 km of new pipeline within the City's municipal
boundaries. A general overview map of the proposed TMEP and details of the routing are
included in Attachment "A".
The following provides a brief overview of the key impacts that may result from the construction
and operation of the proposed TMEP, assuming the route through the Lac du Bois Grasslands
Protected Area is approved. The alternative route through the Westsyde Neighbourhood would
result in significantly more impacts than what will be discussed in this report.
Transportation
The TMEP is expected to result in 11 road crossings within the City.

Eastbound brake check (service road); and
Frontage Road (local road).
Trans Mountain has not disclosed its preferred crossing method for each of the above identified
roads; however, it is likely to include boring, tunnelling, or open-cut crossing. Approvals will be
sought from the City to facilitate associated works.

TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE EXPANSION PROJECT
December 10, 2014

The construction phase and associated road crossings are expected to result in traffic
disruptions, reduced service, and potential delays for local residents. Further, it is expected that
the project's construction will result in the need for detours and temporarily limited access to
specific locations within the City. These impacts are likely to be most significant at the
crossings: Tranquille Road, Ord Road, Airport Road, and Mission Flats Road crossings.
Additionally, it is expected that the project's construction will increase traffic volumes.
Construction-related traffic will include vehicles used for the transportation of equipment,
supplies, and workers. This volume increase is expected to result in traffic disruptions.
The City's operations are likely to be impacted during the construction phase of the project due
to the constraints imposed upon the City's road transportation network. In particular, Mission
Flats Road is the single access road to the Kamloops Sewage Treatment Centre and the
Mission Flats Landfill. As a result, the City will likely experience delays and challenges in the
delivery of services to local residents. The magnitude of such impacts has yet to be specifically
determined, and further study and/or understanding of Trans Mountain's intentions to mitigate
traffic and transportation impacts requires additional attention.
Water and Sewer Infrastructure
The TMEP is expected to include 11 water and sewer utility crossings within the City. The
majority of these crossings are expected to occur within three key areas along the proposed and
existing corridor, which include:
1.
2.
3.
Kamloops Airport area - there are several crossings of both water and sewer utility
infrastructure in this area (Attachment "B").
Mission Flats Road - the proposed pipeline will intersect two sanitary pressure mains
(Attachment "C"). These are a critical component of the City's sewer system as they
convey waste from the South Shore to the Kamloops Sewage Treatment Centre. Any
disruption to either main could result in a significant impact to service and potentially
result in a significant environmental impact.
Frontage Road - there is a proposed crossing of a water main (Attachment "D").
Trans Mountain has not explicitly outlined the method that will be used to cross each of the
identified water and sewer utilities. Further, little information is available from Trans Mountain
as to whether or not these crossings will result in service disruptions.
It is also important to note that the North Thompson River is planned to be the City's emergency
drinking water source. The existing and proposed pipelines cross the North Thompson River
and associated tributaries many times north of the City. While unlikely, if there were to be a
significant spill in the North Thompson River, it is probable that the City's proposed emergency
drinking water source would be compromised.

Stormwater Infrastructure
The proposed pipeline and corridor are planned to be in close proximity to some of the City's
stormwater management infrastructure. In particular, it will intersect two stormwater detention
ponds at the Ord Road Dog Park. These ponds are used to passively manage stormwater from
the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area. It will be important for Trans Mountain to maintain
the stormwater management capacity at this location and appreciate that, during storm events,
there may be a significant amount of stormwater over top of its pipeline infrastructure and
corridor.
Green Space, Parks, and Natural Areas
The proposed pipeline and corridor is planned to intersect the following green spaces, parks,
and natural landscapes within City limits:
•
•
•
•
Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area - the pipeline and corridor will be within the
protected area for approximately 9 km. It is proposed that the project follow, where
possible, an existing Telus fibre optic transmission system right-of-way.
Ord Road Municipal Dog Park - the pipeline and corridor will consume much of the dog
park during construction. It is likely this space will not be available for public use during
the construction period.
Kenna Cartwright Nature Park - the project will follow the existing TMPL corridor within
the western portion of Kenna Cartwright Park for approximately 3.3 km.
Mission Flats Park - the project will also intersect Mission Flats Park. This has not been
explicitly acknowledged within the Trans Mountain's application to the NEB.
A specific environmental assessment and approval process has been initiated and continues for
the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area. With respect to the other park spaces highlighted
above, there is very limited information yet available on the project's potential impacts and
mitigation measures to the environmental and socio-economic components of the
above-mentioned parks within the City.
Initial discussions have occurred between Trans Mountain and the City's Parks, Recreation, and
Cultural Services Department regarding the potential impacts of the project on City parks. It is
anticipated that further discussions will continue in order to share information between both
parties through technical working meetings.
Waste Management
The proposed project will not directly impact waste management infrastructure; however, it is
likely that the project's construction activities on Mission Flats Road may result in traffic delays
and/or potentially limit access to the Mission Flats Landfill and the Kamloops Sewage Treatment
Centre.
Specific traffic mitigation measures for Mission Flats Road have yet to be defined by Trans
Mountain. It will be important for the City to work closely with Trans Mountain to ensure the
City's waste management fleet has unconstrained access to the landfill to minimize or prevent
any disruption to service.

TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE EXPANSION PROJECT
December 10, 2014

Noise
The pipeline's construction activities will result in some noise impacts. It is likely that the
construction of the proposed upgrades at the Kamloops pump station and near the Kamloops
Airport will be of most significance, given their proximity to local residential neighbourhoods. To
facilitate the construction activities, heavy equipment and tools will be required. Any impacts
associated with the project's construction activities will likely be short-term and reversible once
construction has concluded.
The Kamloops pump station operation is expected to be continuous throughout the day and
night. Trans Mountain has modelled post-upgrade expected noise emissions from the pump
station. The operation of the Kamloops pump station is expected to have a maximum nighttime
cumulative sound level of 39 decibels. This sound level is considered to be permissible as
defined by the BC Noise Control Best Practices Guidelines.
A noise management plan is to be created and implemented, as required, before construction
commences to reduce or minimize potential noise effects and should address any concerns if
24-hour construction is required for completion of the pump station upgrades. It will be
important for this noise management plan to consider the cumulative impacts that may arise
should the proposed Ajax Mine move forward.
Air Quality
The proposed project will result in some air quality impacts during the construction period due to
dust and are expected to be mitigated through dust suppression practices. Once operational,
the proposed project is likely to have minimal impacts on local air quality conditions. The only
emissions from the project will be from the heaters and existing storage tanks at the Kamloops
pump station.
Greenhouse Gases
The construction and operation of the proposed project will result in minimal releases of
greenhouse gas emissions within the City's municipal boundaries.
Health Care Resources
Health care facilities within the City are operating beyond their capacity. Trans Mountain has
acknowledged that Kamloops faces challenges with respect to access to physicians. Based on
the expected construction workforce numbers presented by Trans Mountain (approximately a
1% increase in population) it is likely that additional demands will be placed upon local health
care resources. With an increase in usage of local resources, in particular the hospital's
emergency facility, the project could result in reduced health outcomes for the community at
large. Any impacts and/or stresses to local resources would remain for a relatively short-term
period (approximately 12-14 months) during construction. To date, Trans Mountain has not
determined how health care services and resources would be affected in Kamloops. As such,
no Kamloops-specific mitigation measures have been presented.
T:\PWU\ENVIRO SVS\REP\2014\Trans Mountain Expansion.docx

December 10, 2014
Page 6
Housing and Worker Accommodation
As a major urban area along the proposed pipeline route, Kamloops is expected to offer a range
of services and accommodation to both local and in-migrant workers. Trans Mountain has
estimated that Kamloops will host up to 800 in-migrant workers per month during the peak of
project construction and an average of approximately 270 in-migrant workers per month during
the entire construction period.
A worker camp has not been proposed for Kamloops to house the required workers for the
proposed project; therefore, local hotels and motels are likely to host a significant portion of the
work crew population. As the demand for hotels and motels is often significant during the
summer months, stresses may be placed on the community's housing and accommodation
resources. This raises a particular concern, as already highlighted by City staff, regarding the
persistent low vacancy rate within Kamloops' rental units and could potentially displace
affordable housing resources.
As the City has allocated significant resources to improve the challenges associated with
homelessness and affordable housing, it will be important to further assess the impact of project
workers upon the housing and accommodation resources within Kamloops.
Next Steps
As part of the NEB's official hearing process for the proposed pipeline project, the City, acting
within its status as an intervenor, has until January 9, 2015, to submit a written request for
information to Trans Mountain. Trans Mountain will then have until February 10, 2015, to
provide written responses to all requests for information received from all intervenors.
Unless determined otherwise by the NEB, this will be the final opportunity for intervenors to
submit such requests directly to Trans Mountain.
Intervenors will then have until
February 19, 2015, to file notices of motion to Trans Mountain on the adequacy of the
responses received by the February 10, 2015, deadline.
Although January 9, 2015, is the deadline for the final formal opportunity to submit a written
information request to Trans Mountain, it has been communicated to the City by Trans Mountain
that Trans Mountain is willing to continue open dialogue with the City beyond the January 2015
deadline; however, any information provided in this fashion would be outside of the public
record.
In its project application, Trans Mountain projected a 2015/2016 start date for construction;
however, the NEB will not be releasing its report until January 25, 2016, which indicates that,
pending further delays in the project application process, construction will not commence until
early 2016 at the earliest.
ALTERNATIVES/OPTIONS
Council may wish to withhold written comment to the NEB regarding the proposed TMEP and
work directly with Trans Mountain to present the City's perspectives on the proposed project.

SUSTAINABILITY IMPLICATIONS
The Sustainable Kamloops Plan includes several components that will likely be impacted by the
proposed TMEP. These include, but are not necessarily limited to, land, air, water, natural
environment, recreation, economic development, and health and wellness. Staff continue to
review the application to appreciate how the project may or may not impact the City's
sustainability priorities.
FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
Local Government Property Tax Revenues
The existing TMPL system generates approximately $845,000 in local government tax revenues
per year. If constructed, the TMEP will increase tax revenues to the City. Referencing the
proposed Lac du Bois route, as well as the most recent BC Assessment Data and 2014 tax
rates, the City can expect to see an increase in local government revenues of approximately
$745,000 per year.
Once constructed, both pipelines would contribute approximately
$1.59 million in annual municipal tax revenue.
CONCLUSION
The location of Trans Mountain's proposed project within the City's municipal boundaries
presents the potential for impacts to the delivery of municipal services and community
well-being. Acting upon the City's role as an official intervenor for the proposed project and
submitting a formal request for additional information to the NEB is an effective means to ensure
that questions pertaining to these potential impacts are officially recognized and accounted for
during the regulatory review process.

Veer southwest through agriculturally zoned lands for approximately 1.4 km.
Exit City limits for approximately 4.7 km.
Re-enter City limits in the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area, just west of the
McQueen Creek Ecological Reserve.
Continue south until it exits the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area and enters
agricultural lands.
Re-join the existing easement and continue directly south for approximately 2 km.
Follow the existing easement and travel southwest for approximately 5 km through
agricultural lands and the Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area, avoiding most urban
development and infrastructure on the North Shore.
Intersect Ord Road at the Ord Road Dog Park, 2750 Ord Road (D.L. 250, which is
owned by BA Dawson Blacktop Limited and used as an aggregate supply), and the
Canadian National Railway (Attachment "B").
Continue south to the industrial lands currently owned by Trans Mountain.
Enter the northwest corner of a vacant Special Development Area (Plan 6260, Lot 3,
D.L. 250 or 2925 Tranquille Road) for approximately 50 m.
Shift west across Tranquille Road and travel south directly adjacent to Tranquille Road
within the boundaries of the Kamloops Airport.
Cross the Thompson River (Attachment "C"). To facilitate the crossing, Trans Mountain
has proposed using horizontal directional drilling, which will minimize impact to riparian
areas, the river's banks, and the river itself. The proposed drilling is expected to run
from approximately 80 m south of Tranquille Road near the end of the airport runway
through to approximately 100 m north of Mission Flats Road at the Mission Flats Park.
Intersect Mission Flats Road and the Canadian Pacific Railway right-of-way.
Climb the south slope of the river valley within the boundaries of Kenna Cartwright
Nature Park (Attachment "D").
Upon exiting Kenna Cartwright Nature Park, intersect two agriculturally zoned properties
(2600 and 2450 Trans Canada Highway West).
Intersect Hillside Road, the Trans Canada Highway, and the adjacent Frontage Road to
eventually enter the existing Kamloops pump station on the south side of the Trans
Canada Highway. All works associated with the pump station upgrade are planned to
occur within its existing boundaries.
Follow the existing easement across a semi-forested upland plateau from Kamloops to
Merritt. Although not within Kamloops, it is important to note that the proposed pipeline
corridor will include a "jog" to the west of the proposed Ajax Mine property to avoid
Jacko Lake and a narrow valley where there is insufficient room to install a second
pipeline.

REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE PUBLIC WORKS AND UTILITIES DEPARTMENT
ON
AWARD OF CONSTRUCTION SERVICES FOR FALCON ROAD SANITARY SEWER LIFT
STATION REPLACEMENT AND STANDBY POWER
PURPOSE
To seek Council's approval to award the construction contract for the Falcon Road Sanitary
Sewer Lift Station Replacement and Standby Power Project.
SUMMARY
The project was originally identified for construction in 2007, and at that time, the project only
consisted of replacing the Falcon Road sanitary sewer lift station. In addition, the Oriole Road
stormwater station was in need of standby power. Administration recognized potential synergy
between the two projects and took time to explore the possibilities. The project now consists of
replacing the Falcon Road sanitary sewer lift station and moving it adjacent to the Oriole Road
stormwater station. It also includes installing emergency standby power in the same location so
that both stations can be hooked up. The locations of the current and new Falcon Road
stations, as well as the Oriole Road station, are included on Attachment "A".
A construction tender was issued on November 7, 2014, and closed on November 28, 2014.
Five bids were received, ranging from a high of $1,868,577.90 to a low of $865,200, including
GST. The low bid was submitted by Extreme Excavating Ltd. and has been reviewed and found
to be a compliant bid.
Once costs for internal project management, external testing, and GST rebate are taken into
consideration, the total project cost is $914,000. This project cost is above the current budget of
$877,700 in the Financial Plan. Because this project is being driven by development,
Administration recommends funding the difference ($36,300) from Development Cost Charges
(DCCs).
RECOMMENDATION:
That Council authorize:
a)
Awarding the Falcon Road Sanitary Sewer Lift Station
Replacement and Standby Power contract to the lowest bidder,
Extreme Excavating Ltd., in the amount of $865,200, including
GST;

b)
An increase to Capital Project No. 912338, Falcon Lift Station
Replacement, in the amount of $36,300 funded from Development
Cost Charges; and
c)
The Finance Director to update the 2014-2018 Financial Plan.
COUNCIL POLICY
In accordance with Corporate Policy FIN-4-6 - Agreement and Contract Approvals, contracts
greater than $800,000 are to be approved by Council.
DISCUSSION
The Falcon Road sanitary sewer lift station is one of the oldest stations in Kamloops and was
identified for replacement in 2007. At approximately the same time, the need for standby power
was identified at the nearby Oriole Road stormwater station. In order to take advantage of the
synergy between the two projects, the new Falcon Road lift station will be installed adjacent to
the existing Oriole Road stormwater station so that both stations can take advantage of the
backup power.
A tender for the reconstruction project was issued on November 7, 2014, and closed on
November 28, 2014, and five bids were received. As shown below, the tender results ranged
from a high of $1,868,577.90 to a low of $865,200, including GST.
Tender Results Summary

5.
Extreme Excavating Ltd. $824,000.00 + GST
Acres Enterprises Ltd. $892,991.30 + GST
Bryco Projects Inc. $1,445,787.00 + GST
BA Dawson Blacktop Ltd. $1,459,653.00 + GST
Dawson Construction Ltd. $1,779,598.00 + GST
The low bid of $865,200, including a $40,000 contract contingency and GST, was submitted by
Extreme Excavating Ltd., and it has been reviewed and found to be a compliant bid. On
projects of this size and value, it is a City requirement that the successful bidder provide a
Canadian Construction Association Gold Certified superintendent or intern. Upon notice of
award, the contractor is required to deliver a copy of Gold Seal Certification or proof of
internship for the superintendent demonstrating both the appropriate level of experience and
previous comparable company work experience.
Subject to award and contract execution, work is expected to commence in January 2015, with
completion in May 2015.

Topic of discussion: (please be specific, provide details, and attach additional
information if required)
The present Mc Arthur is slated to be under the wrecking ball very soon, we at this point have no
say in what happens with this building. What we active senior citizens want to propose is a multi use
facility which will allow us senior active people to use during the daytime for pickleball, badminton
slow pitch seniors exercise programs, senior volleyball , table tennis , meeting area's for different
sports organizers to meet with membership for their monthly meetings and other events that seniors
like to do. This building should be large enough that this city is able to host tournaments such as the
senior games, or for that matter for our club to host pickleball tournaments which will bring significant
dollars into the city bussiness's. I have seen other cities in our province with beautiful community centers
that cater to the needs of that commnunity. There is a gray sunami coming ( baby boomers ) , they are
going to retire and will want to play indoor sports, this city at the present time does not have spaces
for all these active seniors to play an indoor sport
Purpose of presentation:

Activities to date relevant to this matter: (attach additional information if required)
Our club was playing pickleball in the old youth centre building and now we have to play in other

Dear City Council
On behalf of the Kamloops Health Coalition I am writing to encourage you to support free public transit in
Kamloops. Many of us believe this would improve the quality of life in Kamloops for all of us and especially for
many seniors and those with respiratory problems.
The abundance of private traffic in our city contributes much pollution to the air thereby affecting the quality of the
air we breathe and certainly those with respiratory problems sometimes find it particularly uncomfortable, even a
challenge, when coupled with other pollutants.
Also, many seniors in our city are no longer able to drive. Many on pension can no longer afford the high cost of
operating and maintaining their own private automobile. Many no longer have the capacity to operate a motor
vehicle because of physical limitations like poor eyesight, and some have a tough time maintaining their
concentration on the road. This limits the ability for many to shop, attend sporting, cultural, recreational and
entertainment events and participate in the many things our wonderful city has to offer.
Many cities in the world have free public transit in order to lessen congestion in downtown areas, lessen demand
for parking in the downtown core, and improve the quality of the air citizens have to breathe. At the least please
consider some free public transit such as during nonrush hours or on particular days of the week. For example,
many Kamloops merchants offer discounts for seniors on Tuesdays. What a great way to improve commerce in our
city. Iftransit were free on Tuesdays many seniors would have an opportunity to take advantage of these bargains
and merchants would benefit from increased sales.
Seniors currently constitute about one-sixth of Kamloops population and the numbers continue to grow. They are
not expected to peak until about 2036. More and more of our city's population will become dependent on public
transit for necessary doctor, hospital, pharmacist and other special health needs. More and more it is the case that
enhanced public transit will be necessary if seniors are to participate in the many things our city has to offer and
enjoy life to the fullest in Kamloops.
We urge you to support free public transit in Kamloops.
Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
Sincerely
Rick Turner,
Chairperson, Kamloops Health Coalition

COUNCIL MEMO
Date:
December 11, 2014
To:
Mayor and Council
From:
M. Kwiatkowski, Development and Engineering Services Director
RE:
Free Public Transit Request
This memo is in response to Mr. Rick Turner's letter to Council dated December 3, 2014,
requesting Council's support for free public transit in Kamloops. The potential implications to
the City if free transit were to be provided are outlined below.
The cost to run public transit (conventional and custom) in Kamloops in 2015 will be
approximately $16.1 million. The cost to the City will be approximately $5.2 million after the
province's contribution of $6.86 million and after costs are offset by revenue. Please note that
fare revenues are not shared with BC Transit, which means that 100% of fares collected go to
the City. Without the revenue generated by fares, the City's share of operating costs would
jump to approximately $8.62 million in 2015.
The breakdown of the expected 2015 revenue generated by fares is as follows:
Fare box cash
$1,070,000
Tickets and passes
$2,355,000
TOTAL
$3,425,000
Currently, the average fare revenue is approximately $9,500 per operating day, and the
average weekday revenue is approximately $3,000 per day higher on weekends or holidays due
to the increased weekday ridership and increased fare box cash tickets and day pass use.
Research shows that free transit service will result in a significant ridership increase. It was
noted that only a small percentage of new riders were found to be made by people switching
from motorized travel modes and that the majority of new trips were made by people who
typically would have used non-motorized modes of transportation or would not have made the
trip in the first place if they had to pay a fare (TCRP Synthesis 101, Implementation and
Outcomes of Fare-Free Transit Systems, Transportation Research Board of the National
Academies, 2012). An increase in service would most likely need to be provided to
accommodate the rise in ridership, which would add to the expected operating cost identified
above.
City staff are in support of providing facilities and services to Kamloops residents to encourage
them to use alternative modes of transportation to the automobile. Hence, the increase in
active transportation projects completed or currently underway and the proposal for increased
transit service in Kamloops in September 2015; however, given the significant financial
implications, staff do not recommend providing free public transit in Kamloops at this time.

Per Council's direction, staff will bring forward a report on transit fare options, which is
anticipated to be brought to Council late in the first quarter of 2015. If there are specific fare
options Council would like available in that report, then Council could provide that additional
direction to staff.

Subject: Age Limits of Taxis
CC: John Wilson. Manager. Bi-Law and Community Safety
Auto makers all over the world manufacture cars many months ahead of bringing them to
the market. In case of Toyota it is anywhere between 3 to 10 months before the vehicle is
introduced to the market. As such, for all practical purposes, the car's year model is taken
into consideration for determining the age of the car.
However, the City of Kamloops Bi-Law staffs have started putting Taxis out of service
according to their date of manufacture. This is unfair and undermines the City of
Kamloops vehicle for hire bi-law which allowed us to keep cars on road for up to 9 years.
Therefore, I would like to humbly request that this unfair practice is changed and the year
model vehicles is allowed to work up to 1S''' of May ofthe 9^^ year as it was originally in
the Bi-Law.
Sincerely,
Abdul Rashee(|^^

COUNCIL MEMO
Date:
December 12, 2014
To:
Mayor and Council
From:
D. Duckworth, Corporate Services and Community Safety Director
RE:
Vehicle for Hire Age Limits - Yellow Cabs (Kamloops) Ltd.
This memo is in response to a request from Yellow Cabs (Kamloops) Ltd. (Yellow Cabs) with
regard to the age of vehicles for hire.
Summary of Yellow Cabs' Letter
The City uses a vehicle's manufactured date as opposed to its model year to determine
compliance with the City's maximum nine-year age requirement. However, vehicles are
manufactured between three and ten months in advance of being introduced to market.
Mr. Rasheed, representing Yellow Cabs, believes the use of the manufacture date is an unfair
means to calculate compliance with age limits on taxis as it does not necessarily allow cars to
be on the road for up to nine years.
Manufacture Date Versus Purchase Date
There is in fact a time lag between a vehicle's manufacture date and purchase date. For
example, a vehicle identified as a 2014 model and purchased in 2014 is likely to have been
built in 2013. Furthermore, imported vehicles, such as Toyotas will tend to have a longer lag
between manufacture and purchase due to overseas shipping.
Monitoring and Compliance
To monitor age limits of vehicles, the City's Vehicles for Hire Bylaw No. 28-18 is silent on a
specific method to determine vehicle age. Staff use the date of manufacture identified on the
Safety Standard Certification Label on the vehicle to determine vehicle age. This information
can also be verified from a Vehicle Identification Number if the Safety Standard Certification
Label is missing.
Nine-year Age Limit
The Vehicles for Hire Bylaw specifically refers to age of a vehicle, not the amount of time it has
been operated. Section 24 of the bylaw states "Every licensed taxicab must not exceed nine
(9) years of age."
To this end, the date of manufacture is the logical source of data to verify age of the vehicle.
Purpose of Age Limit
In 2007, the City enacted a five-year age limit on taxis with the intent of improving the quality
of vehicles used for taxi services. At the time, there were significant maintenance and safety
issues within the taxi fleet. Many taxis were older, re-serviced taxis that were purchased from
fleets in the Lower Mainland after being removed from service due to age and mileage.

Memo.docx

Vehicles for Hire Age Limits - Yellow Cabs (Kamloops) Ltd.
December 12, 2014
Page 2
As an important transportation mode for visitors and residents, taxis are often the first
impression people have of public transportation in the community. Cleanliness, maintenance,
and overall safety of these vehicles are important.
Several municipalities in the Lower Mainland stipulate seven years as the maximum age limit
for taxis.
Age Limit Revisions Since 2007
In 2008, Mr. Rasheed, representing Yellow Cabs, appeared as a delegation before Council
claiming hardship with the five-year age limit. Council agreed to raise the age limit to seven
years, but established a five-year period to phase in the revised age limit requiring that 100%
of taxi fleets meet the seven-year age limit by May 15, 2013.
In 2014, Mr. Rasheed returned as a delegation before Council claiming hardship because Yellow
Cabs had not complied with the seven-year age limit and was at risk of having over 40% of its
taxis removed from service. Council considered the impact of this and agreed to extend the
age limit to nine years.
Compliance Date Change to May 15
Administration believes that the request to use May 15 as a compliance date each year would
affect the intent of the bylaw, which is to review age of individual vehicles. It would instead
enable the age limit of individual vehicles to be extended beyond the maximum nine-year age
limit, as verified for each vehicle by date of manufacture.
The reference to May 15 is a date previously used during the five-year phase-in period
identified above to meet the seven-year age requirement. Essentially, at each point in time,
the City reviewed the individual age of the vehicles to determine compliance with the phasedin approach for the overall fleet. After the May 15, 2013, deadline, all of the taxis had to be in
compliance and the continued reference to May 15 became irrelevant. When the bylaw was
updated to a nine-year age limit in 2014, the prior schedule for a phased timeline was
removed.
Conclusion
Administration recommends Council receive Mr. Rasheed's correspondence for information and
instruct Administration to continue to enforce the nine-year age limit on taxis based on age
determined from date of manufacture. Of note, these bylaw requirements are equally applied to
all other taxi companies in Kamloops.

REPORT TO THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
FROM THE DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING SERVICES DEPARTMENT
ON
REZONING APPLICATION NO. REZ00539
1505 COLLINGWOOD DRIVE
OWNER/APPLICANT: JLO VENTURES LTD.
PURPOSE
To rezone the subject property from RS-1 (Single Family Residential-1) to RT-1 (Two Family
Residential-1) to permit subdivision of the property and construction of two duplexes.
SUMMARY
The subject property is located at the southwest corner of Collingwood Drive and Venables
Place in Westmount. The neighbourhood is predominantly characterized by one- and
two-storey, single-family dwellings with a two-storey townhouse complex immediately south of
the subject property. The property is zoned RS-1 (Single Family Residential-1), is 1,352 m2 in
area, and has been vacant since a fire destroyed the house in January 2014. The applicant
wishes to rezone the property from RS-1 to RT-1 (Two Family Residential-1) to permit
subdivision of the property into two duplex lots.
KAMPLAN: The Official Community Plan supports infill and intensification of serviced areas
prior to peripheral expansion and encourages a wide range and choice of housing styles
capable of meeting the needs of residents. KAMPLAN also seeks to retain established
neighbourhood character, amenities, and quality while encouraging more diversity. The
Sustainable Kamloops Plan seeks to increase density of development by 25% by 2050 and to
manage overall growth of the urban area to achieve a rate of growth that is 50% of the rate of
population growth.
In this instance, the proposal supports the overarching goals for infill and densification as it allows
the construction of four dwelling units (either two duplexes or two single-family homes with suites)
on a parcel that previously housed one single-family home. Staff are of the opinion that the
construction of duplexes will help diversify the housing stock of a neighbourhood characterized by
single-family houses and townhouses. The parcel is large enough to accommodate two duplexes
and associated requirements, such as parking, setbacks, and lot coverage.
To help retain the neighbourhood's character, staff recommend that rezoning approval be subject
to the registration of a covenant requiring a 10 m setback from the lot to the west to provide
adequate spatial separation between the proposed duplexes and the neighbouring home (see site
plan with increased setback shown as Attachment "A"). The proposed covenant would also
restrict building height to 9 m (measured from lowest point of the building to the peak of the roof)
to ensure that the building is of modest scale relative to its neighbours (see 9 m high duplex
example shown as Attachment "B"). Finally, the covenant would require that any duplex built on
the corner lot be designed so that one half of the duplex fronts Venables Place and one half fronts
Collingwood Drive to reduce the visual impact of side-by-side vehicular access (Attachment "A").

REZONING APPLICATION NO. REZ00539
November 26, 2014
Page 2
All technical issues will be addressed at subdivision and Building Permit stages. As the
application meets the goals of KAMPLAN and the Sustainable Kamloops Plan, and the Public
Hearing process provides an opportunity for residents of the area to express their views to
Council, staff support the application and advise Council to proceed as outlined in the
recommendation.
RECOMMENDATION:
That Council authorize a Public Hearing to consider rezoning Lot 1,
D.L. 257, K.D.Y.D., Plan 22406 (1505 Collingwood Drive), from
RS-1 (Single Family Residential-1) to RT-1 (Two Family Residential-1) to
permit subdivision of the property into two lots with construction of a
duplex on each lot; and
Note: This rezoning application will be held at third reading pending
registration of a restrictive covenant limiting building height to 9 m
(measured from the average ground level adjacent to the lowest wall of
the building to the peak of the roof), prohibiting construction of any
residence within 10 m of the westerly property line, and requiring that
any duplex on a corner lot be designed so that the two units face and are
accessed from different streets.
