KRA Bylaw Compliance Committee
At the direction of the Kinookimaw Residents Association Board of Directors, the newly created Bylaw Compliance Committee has drafted terms of reference and a set of protocols for residents to engage the committee in addressing a bylaw concern. We trust the following will help all residents understand their role in bylaw compliance and the role of the compliance committee.
AUTHORITY: With the full support of the Kinookimaw Beach Association (KBA) and their General Manager (currently, Wayne Morris), the Kinookimaw Residents Association (KRA) has approved the creation of a sub-committee to facilitate the monitoring and compliance of the Bylaws respecting Kinookimaw Resort. This committee was created in July, 2012 and serves at the will and pleasure of the KRA board. The KRA board reserves the right to amend the terms, alter the composition or entirely dissolve the committee as they deem appropriate.
MANDATE: The mandate of the KRA-BCC shall be three-fold
1. To ensure residents initiating construction are fully familiar with bylaws regarding construction parameters and have
submitted to, and received approval for, construction plans from the KBA General Manager (currently, Wayne Morris)
2. To address existing/new community concerns. The KRA-BCC will endeavour to research, understand, and facilitate the
satisfactory resolution of community concerns stemming from any real or perceived breach of the Bylaws respecting
3. To educate for voluntary compliance. The KRA-BCC will endeavour to communicate the nuances and implications of our
community bylaws to better educate the community on the impacts of any action or series of actions that might stand in
contravention of the “Bylaws respecting Kinookimaw Resort”.
STEPS FOR ACCESSING THE KRA-BCC
Each resident seeking the support of the KRA-BCC will be expected to have first attempted to address the matter directly with the resident believed to have violated a bylaw. Only in the event where direct contact has failed to produce a satisfactory result, or is otherwise not possible, shall the resident make a request to the KRA-BCC.
IF A REQUEST FOR SUPPORT FROM THE KRA-BCC IS DEEMED NECESSARY, THE FOLLOWING MUST BE OBSERVED:
In the event the approaching party is unable or unwilling to initiate direct resolution contact, the KRA-BCC will require the completion and submission of a written redress request. The request can be submitted to any member of the KRA-BCC. The elements to be contained in the written redress request are:
Date concern originated;
Names of all parties involved;
Complete and accurate description of event or issue
(including timeframes, witnesses, etc.);
Significant impacts of the issue or event;
Expected outcomes; and
Name of redress requestor.
IF THE KRA-BCC DEEMS INTERVENTION TO BE NECESSARY,
THE FOLLOWING WILL BE OBSERVED:
Once a decision by a minimum of 3 members of the KRA-BCC (none of
which should be a party to the redress request) has been made on
how to approach a resolution of the issue, a KRA-BCC member will be
appointed to take the lead on the resolution action(s). In the event the
resolution decision involves speaking directly with the “offending” party,
two members of the BCC will arrange to meet with said party to begin an
interest-based resolution focused discussion.
A copy of the written redress request will be available to be presented to
the party considered in bylaw violation so they may better see and
understand the nature of the concern, the impact of their action(s) and
what solutions are expected by the requestor.
In the event a reasonable (as determined by the KRA-BCC) resolution is
not achieved, the BCC retains the prerogative to escalate the issue to
the KBA Manager and Board with recommendations for application of bylaw enforcement provisions as found in section 86 of the ByLaws respecting Kinookimaw Resort. This prerogative and pending penalty option shall be communicated to the party deemed to be withholding reasonable resolution.
It is the desire of the board of the KRA that residents work toward observing all bylaws respecting our community, extend grace and understand toward their neighbours, and seek to contribute to the ongoing development of what is the best community on Last Mountain Lake. If we all do our part, this goal is easily achieved.
