UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Secondary Dwelling Open House has been postponed. We will communicate a new date once it has been confirmed. We still want to hear from you! The online survey is open until February 29. Thank you for your understanding!

The District of Sicamous is seeking public input to determine which secondary dwelling designs will form part of the District's new pre-approved library. Council will choose to purchase three designs from each contractor based on preferences expressed during the public input period.

Public input opportunities will include a survey, open from February 1 to 29, 2024 and an open house on Thursday, February 29 from 12 - 3 and 5 - 8 p.m. in council chambers (446 Main Street).
