Airshed Management Plan

As part of the Sustainable Kamloops Plan, the City of Kamloops developed an Airshed Management Plan in 2011/2012 to support the sustainable management of our local airshed. This stakeholder-driven process involved two committees - a technical committee and an advisory committee - as well as multiple public engagement and input opportunities.

The Airshed Advisory Committee is made up of elected officials within the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD), Tk'emlups Indian Band, City of Kamloops as well as representation from the public, industry, and City staff. The Technical Committee included representatives from local and provincial agencies, including the TNRD, Tk'emlúps Indian Band, Interior Health, Thompson Rivers University, School District 73, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Forests, Mines and Lands, and City staff.

During the development of the Airshed Management Plan residents had the following opportunities to be involved in the planning process:

  • Advisory committee - 2 public members appointed to the committee.
  • Airshed Management survey - Over 450 public responses were generated.
  • Airshed Management Planning process presentations - 12 presentations given to community groups or organizations, with over 160 attendees.
  • Airshed Management Plan Workshop - 30 attendees & 5 online submissions.
  • Community information booths - over 2000 people.
  • Draft Airshed Management Plan Open House - over 30 attendees.

Promotion and information sharing about the Airshed Management Plan process has occurred frequently through local media and social media promoting opportunities for the public to participate in person and online.
