The Central Coast Regional District will be putting forward a request to the province to fund a governance study for the Central Coast to undertake a diagnostic study and analysis of governance and service delivery issues.  For clarity, going forward all recent references to a “Restructuring Study” will now be properly named “Governance Study” to better reflect the work being considered and undertaken.

Additional highlights included: a letter will be provided to Active Communities Bella Coola to support the widening of Highway 20 between 4 Mile Reservation and the Bella Coola town site

Project Local brought local producers and retailers together on Thursday, November 5 to talk about how to make local food accessible to residents throughout the region. Thank you to all those who took the time to join us and contribute to the conversation.  Your input is greatly appreciated.
