CCRD hosts Open House for Integrated Strategic Planning

CCRD hosts Open House for Integrated Strategic Planning

An open house for the CCRD 2015 – 2019 Integrated Strategic Planning process was held on August 14th for the Bella Coola Valley. This was the second open house hosted by the CCRD in regards to the Integrated Strategic Planning process with the first one being held on Denny Island in July. Both open houses had great turn outs and were well received by the communities.

The structure for the open house had a casual approach which allowed people to walk around the room freely and discuss with CCRD Board Members and staff on any issues that they feel are important heading into the next five years. To help inform the public on what an Integrated Strategic Plan is the CCRD had information packages to hand out explaining the integrated strategic planning process, who is involved and their roles, mandated services, and a feedback/suggestion card, amongst other information. Information and issues stations were setup covering finance, land use, emergency preparedness, airport, economic development, public works and governance.

The public was encouraged to write down issues that the CCRD should be aware of. This was met with great success, and many suggestions were shared. The public openly engaged in dialogue with the staff and board members. Information and feedback received will be taken into consideration as CCRD continue developing the 2015 – 2019 Integrated Strategic Plan.

The CCRD would like to thank everyone who attended the open houses, and for taking the time to fill out and return the feedback/suggestion cards. All information gathered at both open houses is considered to be valuable, and public participation in the process has been greatly appreciated.

The CCRD will provide updates to the public as they continue on with this process. Watch the CCRD website http://www.ccrd-bc.ca/ and Facebook page at Central Coast Regional District – CCRD for more information soon.
