The York Rural Community Project Steering Committee
We are nearing the first anniversary of the York Rural Community Project which was officially launched on March 29, 2016 when a steering committee was formed by the elected volunteers of the Advisory Committees of the Local Service Districts of Kingsclear, Keswick Ridge, Douglas and Bright. There is no Advisory Committee in the LSD of Queensbury but three dedicated volunteers agreed to represent that part of the YRC project area.
Since its inception, the steering committee has met seven times as a whole and the steering committee executive members have met thirty times. The steering committee has organised fifteen public meetings to present area residents with information about the project. The steering committee executive has worked collaboratively with representatives of the Department of Environment and Local Government to move the YRC project through the government's process for forming a rural community The work continues...
