Welcome!

Area C Governance Study

Click Here to Complete the Study Survey

Do you live or own property in Sunnybrae, Tappen, White Lake, Blind Bay, Sorrento, Eagle Bay, Notch Hill or another Area C community? Have you ever wondered what services the regional district provides, how service decisions are made, or how you can express your views as decisions are made?

The Area C Governance Study will answer these questions and offer opportunities for residents and owners throughout Area C to share their perspectives. What’s working? What’s not? What should be done differently?

How do you feel about the current model for Area C?

The study will explore the current structure of regional district governance and will reach out to Area C communities to understand their interests and concerns. The study will assess the need for change and will identify future options to improve the way Area C is governed and the way local services are delivered.

The Final Area C Governance Study Report, including the outcomes of the study’s public involvement process, is expected to be presented to the CSRD Board of Directors in the fall of 2017.
