The River Gate project is now selling. The first two units are nearing completion. Paving of the access has been completed and paving of the site will be starting soon. The area surrounding the site will be hydro-seeded to return it to a natural state.

The Guidelines allow for the parking of recreational vehicles on home-sites during the season of use. RV's and trailers must be parked on your driveway or in the garage. If you need to park temporarily on the street in front of your home for loading and unloading, please notify the office by phone (250) 828-9989 ext. 1, or email community@sunrivers.com
Many residents have submitted applications for approval of exterior alterations as required by the Guidelines.
If you are planning any changes to the exterior of your home, including repainting, fencing, the addition of awnings, pergolas, etc., or landscape changes, please download, complete and submit the Homesite Alteration Request from mysunrivers.com/forms . Community and neighbourhood approval is required for any planned changes.

Watch your email for a link to a community survey on a proposed playground.

We hope you will take the time to complete the survey so we can use resident input to plan this facility .

The site of the proposed playground will be announced when confirmed.

A new service has been started locally, picking up your compost weekly. Click the flyer for more information or go to their website .

Vistor Parking: Do you have visitors coming and need to use visitor parking for more than 48 hours? Contact the office with the vehicle description, licence number and dates of stay and we will make note and not tag the vehicle.

Speeding: The speed reader has been moved to various locations. Over half of vehicles are travelling above the 30 km/h speed limit within Sun Rivers. About 15% are well in excess of the limit. With more and more children residing in Sun Rivers, we ask all residents to observe the speed limits. PLEASE SLOW DOWN!

Dogs: An ongoing issue is dog owners not cleaning up after their pets. The Community provides doggie bag dispensers and garbage cans throughout the Community. Please abide by the Community Rules and the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc Bylaws and clean up after your dogs! A small minority of owners affect the reputation of many.
