City of Parksville to utilize Knox church facility

Parksville council will hold another “town hall style” meeting Nov. 19 at Knox United Church as part of their ongoing effort to engage the community.

They will start with a regular council meeting at 6 p.m. followed by the town hall meeting at 7 p.m. allowing residents to join the discussion.

The town hall portion will include brief staff presentations on topics determined for the meeting, followed by a question-and-answer session for residents to voice concerns.

The agenda of items to be discussed will be posted on the city website by the previous Friday, Nov. 16.

The meeting follows similar well attended meetings held in various locations in the community over the last several years including one at Ballenas Secondary in May that dealt with resident-only parking signs and introduced the hot topic of keeping backyard hens which has since become a bylaw.

“The town hall meeting in May was an extremely positive experience for council because so many residents were passionate about the issues under discussion,” said mayor Chris Burger. “We are certainly looking forward to engaging in this kind of interactive dialogue again.”

The November 19 meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Knox United Church, 345 Pym Street in Parksville.
