The latest CCRD board meeting was held May 12, 2016 at the CCRD office in Bella Coola.

There were presentations from three delegations.  Ernest Hall, representative of the Mid-coast Ferry Advisory Committee, provided an update on BC Ferries and the 10S route.  The feedback he received suggested that the timeline for a Nimpkish replacement vessel is projected to be no earlier than 2019.

Pat Corbett, Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association, provided a presentation articulating the collaborative marketing approach that Destination BC and the CCCTA are making for the tourism region.  A copy of the information will be made available on the CCRD website.

The final delegation, consultants Maura Walker and Carey McIver, presented on the Solid Waste Management planning process. Stakeholder engagement sessions were held on May 11 and May 12. A Solid Waste Advisory Group (SWAG) has been established and is looking into future options for the CCRD Solid Waste Management Plan.

Two projects are underway at the Thorsen Creek Waste and Recycling Centre – A transfer site and new recycling centre building. With Peter Brothers Construction in the Bella Coola Valley the CCRD is working to get the road at the transfer site, located opposite the landfill, paved.

Additional highlights from the CCRD board meeting include: The CCRD is looking forward to the initial consultation associated with the Governance Study to get underway mid-June.

Plumbing and electrical work have been completed at the Walker Island Concession building. Love Central Coast BC has 31 businesses, artists, and crafters registered.  Marketing materials will be developed in collaboration with NDIT and participating businesses over the next several months.

The next meeting of the CCRD board of directors will be held on June 9th and, as always, members of the public are welcome to attend. For the complete draft of the May board of directors meeting agenda and minutes, please visit the CCRD website at www.ccrd-bc.ca.

Did you know? The Province has issued a level two drought warning for the CCRD area.  A level two drought is given at the first indications of a potential water supply problem. The Province suggests that at this stage everyone can do their part by voluntarily aiming for a 10% reduction in their water use.
