Nelson, BC: Public engagement is an integral part of the Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program Funding (CIP/AAP) process. For a third straight year the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) will use an online engagement tool, which will allow the public to provide their feedback on proposed projects for the area in which they live.
The online public engagement period will be from Monday, March 28, 2022 at 8:00 a.m. to Friday, April 8, 2022 at 4:30 p.m.
To participate in the public engagement process, please visit the RDCK website at www.rdck.ca/cip-aap.
In 2021, the online engagement tool was very successful as a total of eight thousand four hundred thirty five (8,435) entries were received, almost double from 2020. Once the public engagement period was complete, all feedback was shared with the adjudication committee for each of the 20 RDCK jurisdictions (11 electoral areas and nine municipalities) for their review and consideration. The adjudication committees then provided their recommendations to the RDCK Board of Directors.
Please note the online engagement tool is not a voting system, but a way for the public to provide the feedback on projects they feel are most important to the area they live in.
