Cariboo residents will have the chance to have their questions answered as the Regional District (CRD) announced Thursday the creation of multi-agency forums.
The informal community forums will give residents the opportunity to stop by in a casual setting and meet with their Electoral Area directors and CRD staff, along with other agencies, such as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the Cariboo Fire Centre, and RCMP to discuss issues specific to their community.
“We have developed this new public engagement process in an effort to meet the needs of our residents,” states CRD Chair Al Richmond.
“At our former Town Hall Meetings, we were frequently asked questions that would have been best answered by the agencies who deal with the specific issues. By bringing these agencies together, we have created a one-stop shop for residents who can visit each booth to speak directly with the appropriate agency.
The forums will replace the traditional town hall meetings and are based on feedback taken from residents.
They’ll take place as follows:
