The first of two public drop in sessions for the town’s new draft of the Official Community Plan has yielded some positive feedback.

Although turnout was relatively low during the first public drop in session, Saturday, March 12, the town’s planner James van Hemert looks at the glass as half full.

“The people who really care are here,” he said.

A second chance for the public to provide input on the plan has been allotted for Thursday, March 17, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the town’s Municipal Hall, at 39 South Shore Road.

The new draft will serve to provide the town’s elected officials with guidance for the next 10 years, or so.

Copies are available at the town’s library, the Municipal Hall, at public schools, and online, at www.town.lakecowichan.bc.ca – just scroll down on the “News” header.
