YRC Project Feasibility Study Final Report Has Been Accepted - Plebiscite Granted

The Steering Committee for the York Rural Community Project has been informed by Honorable Serge Rousselle, Minister of Environment and Local Government, that he has accepted our Feasibility Study Final Report and that he will arrange for a plebiscite to be held on October 23, 2017 to determine if there is sufficient local support for the proposed Rural Community.  

A copy of the Minister’s response letter will be added to the YRC Project website ( under the Project Info section.

The YRC Project now moves in to the plebiscite preparation phase.  Between now and the plebiscite, activities and events will be organized to help residents understand the similarities and differences/advantages and disadvantages of the status quo (i.e. the Local Services Delivery model ) and a Rural Community model for the delivery of local services.
