CRD Announces Multi-Agency Forums
Cariboo Chilcotin – The Cariboo Regional District announced today that it will be hosting a series of informal community forums in the South, Central and North Cariboo where residents will have the opportunity to stop by in a casual setting and meet with their Electoral Area directors and CRD staff, along with other agencies to discuss issues specific to their community. Representatives will be on hand from various government ministries and services agencies such as Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the Cariboo Fire Centre, RCMP, BC Emergency Health Services and more.
The Community Forums replace the traditional Town Hall Meetings and are based on feedback received from residents who attended last year’s sessions.
“We have developed this new public engagement process in an effort to meet the needs of our residents,” states CRD Chair Al Richmond. “At our former Town Hall Meetings we were frequently asked questions that would have been best answered by the agencies who deal with the specific issues. By bringing these agencies together, we have created a one-stop shop for residents who can visit each booth to speak directly with the appropriate agency.
The forums will take place as follows:
Monday, October 26th, 5:30 -7 p.m.
108 Mile Ranch Community Centre,
4924 Telqua Drive, 108 Mile Ranch
Tuesday, October 27th, 5:30 - 7 p.m.
Bouchie Lake Community Hall,
1975 Centennial Road, Bouchie Lake
Monday, November 2nd, 5:30-7 p.m.
McLeese Lake Community Hall,
6178 Forglen Road, McLeese Lake
The Cariboo Regional District currently provides more than 100 local government services to taxpayers including fire protection, land-use planning, solid waste management, and invasive plant management as well as libraries and recreation facilities.
