GILES, FREDERIC T.; AND OTHERS
THE FEASIBILITY AND GENERAL SITE LOCATION OF A REGIONAL COLLEGE FOR TEN SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE OKANAGAN AREA OF BRITISH COLUMBIA WAS STUDIED AND ESTABLISHED. GEOGRAPHIC CENTERS OF POPULATION DISTRIBUTION, TRANSPORTATION, GENERAL ECONOMY AND SCHOOL POPULATIONS FOR GRADES 1-12 AND 13-14 WERE DETERMINED FROM THE ANALYSIS OF DEMOGRAPHIC, GEOGRAPHIC AND ECONOMIC SURVEYS OF THE REGION. COMPARISONS WITH PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED CRITERIA FOR POTENTIAL COMMUTING STUDENTS AND FOR ASSESSED VALUATION RESULTED IN THE RECOMMENDATION THAT A REGIONAL COLLEGE BE LOCATED NEAR THE FOCUS OF THE VARIOUS GEOGRAPHIC CENTERS. THIS COMPOSITE GEOGRAPHIC CENTER HAD A RADIUS OF TEN MILES AND CONTAINED SEVEN POTENTIAL, SPECIFIC SITE LOCATIONS NEAR THE CITY OF KELONNA.
