What would you do if you had a half million dollars? Survey says…

A survey is the first opportunity for the public to provide input, with a number of community events and focus groups to come in October.

Residents of Lower Columbia(Trail, Rossland, Warfield, Montrose, Fruitvale, Area A and B) will be asked to participate in a regional survey to provide input regarding the priorities and specific actions of the Lower Columbia Community Development Team Society (LCCDTS) in allocating $600,000 in funding, over the next 3 years, under the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) Community Directed Funds (CDF) Program.

The LCCDTS has launched the development of the Lower Columbia Priorities Plan, which will establish the key strategic priorities that will provide the Committee with direction on how to distribute these funds. They must fulfill the CBT’s mandate to “support efforts by the people of the Basin to create a legacy of social, economic and environmental well-being and to achieve greater self-sufficiency for present and future generations,” and the vision of the CDF committee of “a stronger Lower Columbia Community through investment in creative initiatives.” The Whistler Centre for Sustainability has been hired to guide the planning and public engagement process.

“As a Committee, we want to get the funds out working for the community, focused on what residents say is important and where they will have the greatest impact,” said Bruce LeRose, CDF Committee Chair. “To achieve this, we are dedicated to delivering a public consultation process that is efficient, open and transparent. The process will bring our communities together to provide input to the Committee on where the funds should be allocated.”
