YRC Project - Plebiscite Preparation Phase

The YRC Project has moved to the last phase of the community restructuring process that is required by the Department of Environment and Local Government.  This phase is meant to prepare residents for the Plebiscite through education events of various kinds.  Those events are now being organized for many locations in the Project area. 

There will be Open Houses/Drop-In sessions, presentations to community groups and information booths set up here and there. At all of these events, the goal of the YRC Project volunteers who are working at them is to help citizens in the Project area understand how a rural community model compares with a LSD model for the delivery of local services.  This will allow residents to make an informed vote in the plebiscite on October 23, 2017

The YRC Project education events schedule will be finalized in the next couple of days.  Check the Project's Facebook Page for regular announcements (i.e.York Rural Community Project) .

More volunteers would be welcome.  Email us at
