The rural area outside of Rossland is looking to change its name.

What is now know as Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) Area B surrounding the Golden City is looking to change its name to the Electoral Area of Lower Columbia/Old Glory.

Local government name changes require amendments to the local government’s Letters Patent. Amendments to the Letters Patent occur through the issuance of an Order-in-Council (OIC) by the provincial government (Cabinet).

The process includes engaging the people in the region in discussions about the potential changes, including notices regarding the proposed changes and collecting public input and feedback.

People who wish to give feedback on the name change—in favour of it or against the change—can do so at http://intranet.rdkb.mobi/AboutUs/AreaBProposedNameChange.aspx.

Area A outside of Trail and in the beaver Valley is not proposing a name change.

Area C is looking to change to Electoral Area of Christina Lake, while Area D is proposing to become Electoral Area of Area D/Rural Grand Forks.

Area E is looking for Electoral Area of West Boundary.
