Update: Faulder + Meadow Valley Community Check-in Meeting
Updated: Dec 21, 2019
Thank you to those who were able to make it to the Faulder/Meadow Valley meeting early this month. Special thank to RDOS staff who came out as well. There was some great discussion that I and RDOS staff will take forward into 2020.
A few take aways:
Bulletin boards are still the most effective way to communicate to residents. Staff will take a look at what improvements are required at the existing bulletin boards and resolve how to communicate with those residents that use the Dean's Road mailboxes.
There isn't a great desire for community meetings unless there is a significant issue pending. Updates via Civic Ready, Director's blog, bulletin boards and sandwich boards (day of) will suffice.
Discussion around Isintok Dam potential risk was discussed. Because this is a Summerland asset, further questions should be directed to Summerland Water Works. RDOS staff will continue to work with Summerland Water Works.
For those interested in the discussed watershed grant, here is the link: https://hctf.ca/grants/stewardship-grants/#apply
