We remind residents that water restrictions are still in effect. Due to hot and dry weather conditions, our plant continues to experience heavy water demand. We urge residents to adhere to permitted sprinkling times: 7am-9am and 6pm-8pm. This allows our reservoir to recover and our works crew to perform mandatory plant maintenance.

June 21, 2017 SLOCAN VALLEY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY

In 2016, the Villages of Slocan, Silverton, New Denver and Area H submitted a joint application to the Rural Dividend Fund, for recruitment of a consultant to complete an Economic Development Strategy for our Region. The main objective to this project was to develop a multi-year, regional strategy with tangible, capacity-appropriate projects and an associated action plan.
Through a Steering Committee selection process, EDCD Consulting was hired to complete the strategy. The Steering Committee consisted of one elected official from each participating community, along with senior supporting staff (CAO’s). Public engagement sessions were hosted to collect input from the public, as well as completion of an ED Survey.
The Steering Committee received the draft report documents from the consultants which included a summary of input and data collected at the public engagement sessions, and a structure recommendation report. In May, the Final Report – Report Three: Economic Development Strategy and Implementation Plan – was released. The creation and implementation of a regional strategy will assist with the stabilization of the economy by identifying ways to save and enhance existing businesses in both the short and long term. It will identify opportunities for job creation, business retention and business expansion.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL OPPORTUNITY:

RFP-17-001 – WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY, CONSULTANT SERVICES

The Village of Slocan has significant public use areas on its waterfront. These areas are utilized year round and are most popular during the summer months. The waterfront is becoming increasingly popular with multiple user groups, who access public infrastructure including a public beach park with picnic areas and washroom, beach volleyball court, swim dock, boat launch, breakwater, gazebo, and the Slocan Lake trailhead for the Slocan Valley Rail Trail. The area is also comprised of multiple land owners, both public and private.

The Village is seeking to recruit a professional consultant, to create a long-term waterfront management and development strategy for the waterfront areas located west of the mill site. The consultant will host stakeholder and community engagement sessions and analyze existing and new-found data to create a design plan and implementation strategy. Data compiled will include landowner information, traffic patterns and parking needs, existing and potential future uses, climate change impacts, and local/regional economic development benefits. The waterfront design plan and strategy will provide the Village and other stakeholders with a toolkit for moving forward with future development of the waterfront park area, and will plan for the health and longevity of the Slocan waterfront.

Proposals will be accepted up until 4:00pm on Monday, May 15th, 2017.

June 15, 2016 We are pleased to announce that grant funding has been approved for our Cemetery Mapping Project! The scope of this project is to develop an up-to-date digital cemetery database and cemetery web-mapping and management application, for both internal and external users. Village staff can utilize this system to track, plan burials, and update records as needed. Members of the public can log on to search for burial location of a loved one or for genealogy research. Ground penetrating radar can confirm location of unknown burials and solidify historical records. Funding for the project is an estimated $10,000; CBT has contributed $5k and the remaining $5k has been awarded through the RDCK Community Development Grant Fund. We estimate the project will be complete by Fall 2016.

COMMUNITY VOTER’S CHALLENGE!

The Village of Slocan has been invited to participate in the 2015 Voter’s Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to increase voter turnout for the Federal Election on October 19th. According to Elections Canada, approximately 62% of those aged 18-34 did NOT vote in the 2011 Federal Election. We want to encourage our residents of all ages (18+) to cast their ballots!

The organizers will calculate the percentage of voter turnout for each participating community, comparing the previous election results with the upcoming results. The largest increase wins. Prize for the winning community has yet to be announced but there has been talk about a special guest appearance. Rick Mercer has been invited by the organizers to do a “political rant” in the winning community but has not yet been confirmed!

Get out and VOTE on October 19!

Wildland forest fires are capable of spreading at an astonishing rate. Crowning forest fires often spread at up to 5.5 km per hour, with spotting as far as 2 km ahead. Wind blown grass fires can spread at speeds up to 8.8 km per hour.In British Columbia, an average of 48% of all wildfires are caused by human activity. Wildfire is also a natural phenomenon. Nearly 52% of BC’s wildfires are caused by lightening strikes. Over the last several centuries, large areas of BC have been burned over repeatedly. Over the last 10 years, on average over 2,500 wildfires were started in BC each year, consuming over 25,000 hectares of forested land annually. Thousands of families were recently evacuated from their communities and hundreds of homes destroyed.

If you live in Slocan or surrounding area, sooner or later you may have to contend with the spread of wildfire. The best protection against loss, damage or injury due to wildfire is prevention.
Following the FireSmart Home Owner’s Manual can help reduce that risk. For
