    I realise this is likely not the correct place for this, but I can find no other way so please forward this to the correct place or send me a link to the correct place. I am a member of the South forks community. We are trying to get a resolution to our long standing fireball project. We are now being told the RDN has approved a 20 thousand dollar feasibility study in part in a new fire hall they know full well we cannot afford. Please do not waste our money.. All we can afford is the building as proposed twenty years ago before the goal posts were moved way out of our reach. I I am on the Extension fire dept and know all we need is a garage to park a pumped truck in so we can respond with other fire personal in this area in a timely way.. All training, maintenance, tank filling, etc that needs to be done would be carried out at the Extension fire hall.. It would improve coverage for the whole Extension fire area without wasting money on a study we don't need about a fire hall we can't afford.

    S. Wray asked about 1 year ago

    The formal feasibility study will develop options for the use of the funds including potential fire hall designs and a storage garage or ultimately cancelling the initiative altogether and the process for returning the funds.  The options will consider implications and costs followed by a public engagement process.  A “Get Involved” RDN webpage will be created as part of the project to advertise the feasibility study and provide ongoing information in addition to the public engagement process to keep all residents informed and provide an opportunity for engagement with the participating area.  The study maps a path forward to bring a resolution to this long standing challenge.

    I would like a detailed breakdown of the budget for the potential stairs being built between Maple lane and Degnen Bay road on Gabriola island and are all environmental impact studies being included in the budget with regard to marine intensification and density of recreational boats moored in Degnen Bay

    DegnenBay asked over 1 year ago

    The proposed Degnan Bay to Maple Lane stairs project cost breakdown is estimated at $8,000 for professional fees and $27,000 for construction. This proposed project is planned for 2023 and is pending the approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. 

    The proposed project does not include conducting environmental impact studies with regard to marine intensification and density of recreational boats moored in Degnen Bay.
