The District of Peachland is currently in a unique position of still being a small community, but on the verge of becoming much larger. The challenges we will be facing as a community over the next 10 to 20 years have been well documented recently, and so the time is right to now review how we as an organization can be better positioned to meet the needs of our growing community and changing customer expectations. In the past year we have undertaken a customer service review, and have just completed a planning services process review. These reviews have feed into the overall corporate review that the management team has been working on since spring. This corporate review report sets out the objectives and approach, identifies the key findings, and provides specific recommendations for service improvements by department.
