Gallagher Lake Area Plan


Gallagher Lake is a small residential / tourist commercial community located south of Vaseux Lake.  It is currently experiencing new development due to recent availability of community water and sanitary sewer from the nearby Osoyoos Indian Band.   With new servicing, there are additional development opportunities on existing properties.   This is also the closest settlement area to the new South Okanagan Correction Facility.

As part of its 2014 Corporate Action Plan, the Regional District has identified the preparation of an "Area Structure Plan for Gallagher Lake" as a priority.
