The owner of the Oasis Plaza has been ordered to board and clean up his property by July 18 by the Village of Cache Creek or face the penalty of non-compliance.

At its June 9 meeting, Council advised staff to write to owner Joe Carhoon, telling him that in order to comply with the Unsightly Premises bylaw, he is required to board up the building from the steel support columns in front to the main structure to prevent access by persons or animals; to remove the storefront business signs no longer in use; to paint the boarded up area as well as the area where the signs have been removed; and to get rid of the weeds out front.

Carhoun emailed Village staff on June 3 advising them that he was trying to arrange financing and “Wil get cleaning up A.S.A.P.”
