Help Inform Rural Health Care
A team of researchers from the Centre for Rural Health Research in the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia are working on a Rural Evidence Review project. The goal of the project is to work with rural citizens and communities to provide high quality, useful evidence for rural health care planning in British Columbia.
Help identify rural health services issues that matter to you by taking their survey (www.bit.ly/ruralevidencereview) or participating in a research interview. Contact the project coordinator for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Maple Drive Streetlighting Feasibility Study
The CRD approved a request to support a feasibility study for streetlighting in the Maple Drive Corridor up to $7 500. Due to recent changes to traffic patterns and load restrictions, industrial traffic has been re-routed to Maple Drive. As Maple Drive does not have streetlighting there is some concern for the safety of the neighbourhood.
