Letter to the Editor: CVRAC update

At the request of government, the facilitator was asked to meet with them to review what had taken place to date in the CVRAC process.

This letter was sent to the Columbia Valley Recreation Advisory Council and copied to The Valley Echo for publication.

Dear Columbia Valley Recreation Advisory Council,

At the request of government, the facilitator was asked to meet with them to review what had taken place to date in the CVRAC process. The facilitator went over the process to date,

exchanged information and came away with a good feeling. Government wanted some time

to review all the information before responding. An important note that came out of the

meeting was government personnel at the meeting wanted us to understand they did not

ask their representatives to withdraw from the meetings but rather to stand down until

more information was collected and reviewed.

It was also viewed after consulting with the facilitator that taking a break in September

would allow him to work one-on-one with those sectors requiring assistance in selecting a

lead and alternate for their sector. The Steering Committee, which handles the

administrative duties for the CVRAC process, is meeting in September to look at financial

needs and other related business.

The next meeting of the CVRAC planning group is on October 15, 2012 with the agenda

coming out to groups a week before. If there is anything you would like to add to the

agenda please contact Crystal Leonard at 250-688-0561 or crystal@box100.com.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s time and patience. We look forward to moving forward

and working together. If you have any questions regarding the process or selecting

representatives please contact Dennis Hamilton at 250-229-4348 or d.hamilton@telus.net.

Best Regards,

CVRAC Steering Committee
