RDKS Board seeks Upper Skeena CAC members

The Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (RDKS) is seeking members for the
Upper Skeena Community Advisory Committee.

What is a Community Advisory Committee (CAC)?
An Advisory Commission is an independent body comprised of residents appointed by the Regional District Board. Members of a CAC serve on a volunteer basis, attending meetings quarterly or as scheduled based on need and volume of referrals from the Board. CACs are advisory in nature, and they do not have any direct approval, ownership, or authority over matters that are referred to them.

Members of a CAC have a significant responsibility to the community they are appointed to represent. The primary functions of an CAC are as follows:

Advising the Board, when requested, on matters respecting land use and community planning, such as:
Preparation of Zoning Bylaws and Official Community Plans
Preparation of infrastructure plans and studies that have planning implications (e.g., sewer, water, transportation)
Applications from property owners for land use approvals, such as rezoning applications, temporary use permits, and development variance permits
Listening to and gathering input from the community to ascertain views on planning and land use matters

The newly appointed Upper Skeena CAC (see Bylaw 758) will be composed of residents from South Hazelton, Two-Mile, Kitwanga, Kispiox Valley, Cedarvale and other communities in Electoral Area B.
