The Creston Valley – Kootenay Lake Economic Action Partnership (CV-KL EAP) remains active towards creating an “Economic Action Strategy” for our local communities between Yahk to Yaqan Nukiy to Riondel.
As the end of Phase 2: Determining Plan Direction is near, community ambassadors from Lower Kootenay Band, RDCK Electoral Area’s A, B, C, and the Town of Creston remain eager to hear from you! They’ve been busy connecting with agencies, schools, and businesses through meetings and local events. Community input and involvement is critical for determining the direction of this plan.
The Economic Strategy Community Open House is on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 from 5-7pm at the Creston & District Community Complex. It will be a drop-in for businesses, associations, and community members to share input about direction and ideas towards building a regional economic strategy. Kootenay Employment Services, who is leading the project, will be present with partners, community ambassadors, and Colleen Hamilton and William Trousdale from EcoPlan International; the experienced, Vancouver-based planning firm helping build our strategy. Guests will be informed about results from recent community engagement, questionnaires, and learn about next steps in developing the strategy.
If you cannot attend, please speak with your Area A Community Ambassador – Laverne Booth to provide your input or receive strategy updates by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
