On Friday November 13, the CCRD Board of Directors held their regular meeting.

On Friday November 13, the CCRD Board of Directors held their regular meeting. The next meeting will take place at 9am on Thursday, December 10 and as always, the public are welcome to attend.

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.

The Bella Coola Music Festival will be submitting a funding application to NDIT’s ‘Fabulous Festivals and Events’ program.

For anyone interested in further information please visit the CCRD website, Facebook page, or stop by the office to speak with a CCRD staff member.

DID YOU KNOW? Northern Development Initiative Trust requires a resolutions of support from the Regional District to be submitted with all applications.  The next intake date for NDIT programs is February 12, 2016.

As the Central Coast Regional District Board does not meet in January it is recommended that those seeking to apply to NDIT programming put forward a general project outline and request for support to the Central Coast Regional District no later than December 3, 2015.
