The Central Okanagan Emergency Operations Centre has been activated to support the opening of several cooling centres across the area, in response to the heat warning issued by Environment Canada. A cooling centre has been set up at the Peachland Community Centre at 4450 6th Street, open from 11am-7pm. Cooling centres will follow Provincial Health Orders for COVID-19 and will have supplies of water, masks and hand sanitizer on-hand and physical distancing measures will be in place. Masks are required as per the BC Centre for Disease Control. Cooling centres will remain open until the heat wave subsides. Keep an eye on local news and cordemergency.ca. For information and tips about how to manage during the heat, visit Interior Health. The Central Okanagan Emergency Operation Centre also provides information on Facebook at facebook.com/CORDEmergency and Twitter at twitter.com/CO_Emerg.
A movie will be filming in Peachland next week. Community impacts/shoot locations are as follows: June 24-25 – Inglis Place (private residence), June 24 – 14th Street dock, frontage of District office and back staff parking lot, June 25 – dock adjacent 4050 Beach Avenue, June 24-26 – portable washroom located at 4080 Beach Avenue for the film crews and June 26-27 (2-night overnight shoot) – Gasthaus dock, Rotary clock park and back District staff parking lot. The film crew is responsible for neighbour notification. The District will post signage for parking/dock and sidewalk closures. As the movie is set in the 1980s, residents are asked to keep newer model cars away from site locations. Site locations will have a truck, motorhome and tents for holding talent and crew. For additional information, contact the production manager at 604.313.4192.
The boat launch will remain open but access will be limited. One side of the launch will be open (with the existing dock) but boats cannot be launched or removed when there is active pile driving occurring. The contractor will try to accommodate boaters but boaters are recommended to use the 8th Street Boat Launch. We expect construction to begin on Tuesday, June 22 and should wrap up before the weekend. For more information, please contact the Public Works office at 250.767.2108.

About Peachland

About Peachland
Imagine living and working in a location that many people just dream about for vacation visits. Situated on eleven kilometers of Okanagan lakefront, Peachland is in the very heart of the recreation paradise that is the Okanagan Valley. Positioned midway between Kelowna and Penticton, it is the perfect location to draw from both population centres, and is well positioned to act as a hub for wine and other agri-tourism activities. Peachland is within easy reach of over 200 estate wineries and microbreweries. In the relatively brief winter season Peachland is centrally located to downhill skiing at Big White to the east and Apex Mountain to the south. Numerous hiking, biking, cross country skiing, and snow-mobiling trails are within minutes drive of Peachland.
