Campbell River, BC – Strathcona Regional District (SRD) elected officials and senior staff will soon visit each of the electoral areas to discuss the 2019 financial plan and informing strategic priorities for the next four years, as well as key initiatives such as improved broadband connectivity, community services including parks and planning, and the proposed redevelopment of Strathcona Gardens.
“I am excited about the work happening across the region,” says SRD Board Chair Michele Babchuk. “The start of a new Board term is the perfect time to check-in with residents, in their own communities, and ensure that current services and future plans align with their unique needs and aspirations.”
Four open-house events are planned, one in each electoral area. Residents are invited to drop-in at any time during the event and enjoy a cup of coffee and locally baked goods while speaking with their Electoral Area Director and SRD staff. There will be information posters and opportunities to provide feedback and ideas that will help inform future strategic plans and the Electoral Area pre-budget meetings that are scheduled for November and open for the public to attend.
