New Local Advisory Committee ready to take on Area A

By Karen Cathcart

The past few months has been busy organizing the Local Advisory Committee for the 2019/2021 year.

Our first meeting will be held at the Civic Centre boardroom on Tuesday, March 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

The Local Advisory Committee members provide insight for the Area A director and allows for reporting out on information on what is happening at the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) board meetings.

As your regional district representative, I report out on services, programs, and funding opportunities, the meetings I attend, as well as address any issues or concerns that are brought forward by the advisory committee members and the public.

I hope to see folks out for the March meeting. We will be providing an update on the Year Round Pool Feasibility Study, taxation for the 2019 year, the Trail Alliance next steps, Grants in Aid, Community Economic Development, and much more.

Please note that the CSRD are looking to build the advisory committee for the year round pool feasibility study process.

If you are interested in being part of this committee, you have an opportunity to send in your interest to the CSRD. The information is located in the Golden Star and the CSRD website.

If you would like to connect with me, please contact me via e-mail at, or phone 250-344-8357. I would be happy to hear from you.

Karen Cathcart is the Electoral Area A director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.
