Ravensong Aquatic Centre RDN Bylaw #899

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is reviewing District 69 Swimming Pool Service Establishment Bylaw #899.

Bylaw #899 gives the RDN the authority to operate Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach and recover the costs related to the facility. The changes would have financial implications for residents of Electoral Areas E, F, G, H, City of Parksville and Town of Qualicum Beach.

The two bylaw #899 changes being considered are:

  1. Change the cost recovery funding model to one-third assessment, one-third usage and one-third population-based from its current funding model of one-half usage and one-half assessment.
  2. Adding Electoral Area E (Nanoose Bay) as a participating area.
