The next phase of public engagement for the Regional District of Central Kootenay climate action plan began on Aug. 24 at the Slocan Park Community Hall with the first of 20 climate action open houses across the RDCK.
An RDCK press release states that the sessions will build on insights gained from the public engagement process thus far.
“These open houses are a crucial step in the process,” said Dan Séguin, RDCK manager of community sustainability. “We are eager to showcase the ideas and suggestions that emerged from the dialogue circles and look forward to continued high levels of interest and participation from residents across the RDCK.”
At the open houses, participants can view information posters, learn about the proposed actions, share thoughts and ideas, connect with RDCK staff and provide input on how to move forward.
Participants are invited to drop in at any time during the scheduled three hours.
