Regional District of Central Kootenay Policy Manual

The recommended allocation system must be philosophically sound, thereby easy to defend, andvpractically based, as well as easy to implement. The philosophical grounding being applied to allocation, which is also applied in determining fees and charges, is based on an assessment of public benefits. The following statement forms the core of the allocation policy. Evaluation of who benefits from the usage will determine the level of allocation priority and ensure fair and equitable allocation of RDCK Facilities. If all, or substantially all, of the benefits accrue to the community as a whole, the user should have a high allocation priority. If all, or substantially all, of the benefits accrue to the individual or group, without any greater public benefit, the user should have a low priority. Where the benefits accrue to the community and also to a specific user, the allocation priority will be determined on the basis of proportionate benefit. The higher the benefit to the community, the more the community asset and resources should be allocated for those uses and purposes.
