Meeting tonight to talk Alternative Approvals

Residents hearing about Alternative Approval Processes as they relate to Cowichan Lake residents are invited to an information session

Residents hearing about Alternative Approval Processes as they relate to Cowichan Lake residents are invited to an information session, tonight, Nov. 4, at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena.

Officials from the Cowichan Valley Regional District will be on hand, beginning at 7 p.m., to explain their reasons behind wanting more tax dollars for the Cowichan Flood Management and the Arts and Culture Initiatives Services. Both are seeking approval through the CVRD-board endorsed, controversial AAP system and affect residents of the Town of Lake Cowichan, Area F (Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls), and Electoral Area I (Youbou/Meade Creek), among others in the region.

“The Information Session will explain the reasons for creating each service; the annual financial impact; and the method by which public approval for each service is being sought,” said a notice from the CVRD.
