Dave Fast looks to future for Cowichan Bay in run for Area D seat

They want safer walkways, a community space for events and better parking in the Bay

David Fast is running for the Cowichan Bay seat (Area D) on the CVRD board.

I was born and raised on the island and I’ve lived in the Cowichan Valley for 10 years.

As a loving husband and a dad to two wonderful children, six years ago we decided that Cowichan Bay was where we wanted to raise our family. I’m a realtor with Pemberton Holmes and I’ve asked many: what’s important to you and what needs improvement in Cowichan Bay? They want safer walkways for young and old to enjoy, a community space for events and better parking in the Bay so they can enjoy the cool little stores with their family.

Climate change — Local governments are on the front lines of sea level rise and changing weather and precipitation patterns. Being able to collect enough information to plan effectively is a necessity.

Water protection and management — Having enough information and the means to study and protect aquifers and watersheds is essential for a growing community in a changing climate.

Affordable housing — Having enough affordable housing helps everyone in the community. Paying a little to attract a lot of senior government funding will save money and improve the community in the long run.
