Parksville downtown association’s AGM is tonight (Tuesday)

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre

  • Mar. 10, 2015 7:00 a.m.

The Parksville Downtown Business Association (PDBA) is having its annual general meeting tonight at the community and conference centre on Jensen Avenue.

The association’s notice said the meeting will include an election of directors, a presentation of 2014 financial statements and the 2015 budget. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

According to the PDBA’s notice, “only property owners and business owners/operators within Parksville’s downtown Business Improvement Area (McMillan Street to McVickers Street, Jensen Avenue to the waterfront) have voting privileges.”

The PDBA was in the news late last year when people saying they represented Craig Street businesses appeared before city council, unhappy with what they said was the lack of attention their street was getting from the PDBA.

Parksville businesses within the boundary of the BIA pay additional taxes to fund the PDBA. Approximately $150,000 is raised this way to fund the association.

See Thursday’s edition of The NEWS for a report on the meeting.
