Masset to update community plan

  • Mar. 15, 2006 5:00 p.m.

The village of Masset wants to update its official community plan, because the current one is more than 15 years old.
Council members voted Monday night (March 13) to apply for a grant from the Real Estate Foundation of BC, as well as the province, to rework the plan.
Administrator Trevor Jarvis said it will cost approximately $15,000 to $20,000. Council members said they hope to hire a local consultant, if possible, to do the work.
Mayor Barry Pages said the official community plan provides a vision for where Masset will be in the next five years, and helps guide decisions like what infrastructure to build.
The plans are usually updated every five to 10 years, said councillor Ed Woode, and Masset’s hasn’t been updated since well before the military downsized in the mid-1990s.
Council also voted to donate $250 to the QCI Chamber of Commerce towards the “meet and greet” dinner it’s hosting April 7 for a delegation from Alaska’s Prince of Wales Island.
