Parksville council host committee of the whole meetings to address roundtable recommendations

Public invited to provide input during four meetings

Earlier this year, Parksville mayor Ed Mayne hosted the Mayor’s Roundtable to engage Parksville community members in a conversation about why residents love Parksville and to gain an understanding of the community’s vision for the city.

The mayor presented the results from the roundtable in a report to council in March which recommended holding committee of the whole meetings to facilitate presentations from relevant community experts to assist with council’s consideration, decision making and development of strategic planning actions.

As a result, four Committee of the Whole meetings have been scheduled to focus on each of the identified strategic priorities:

  • May 6 – 4-5 p.m. – Public Safety
  • May 22 – 4:15-5 p.m. – Recreation and Healthcare
  • June 3 – 4-5 p.m. – Affordable Housing
  • June 17 – 4-5 p.m. – Downtown Revitalization and Economic Development

The first three committee of the whole meetings will be held in the Forum at the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre (100 Jensen Avenue East) and the June 17 meeting will be held at Knox United Church. All meetings are open to the public with opportunity for public comment at each meeting.
