The select committee of the board and the CVRD value the input from the residents and property owners of Hornby Island as your comments will help guide the design of a new fire hall that meets the current and future needs of the emergency responders, within an acceptable cost.

The select committee will review and consider all public input to determine broad themes and interests expressed. These broad themes and interests will be forwarded to a design team for consideration at the various stages of the design process. [PDF - 110 KB]

Written submissions, questions, and questionnaire results will be posted on this website which will be updated regularly. Please note: responses received, including the names and addresses of respondents, may be made public unless confidentiality is specifically requested.

CVRD commitment to you


The development of a new fire hall will require electoral assent, which means that the residents and property owners of Hornby Island will have to give their permission by way of alternate approval process (AAP) or by referendum to proceed with the project.

In providing all of the information required for the citizens to make an informed choice on whether or not to proceed with the project, the CVRD is committed to:

  • communicating with all residents and property owners in a meaningful and substantive way
  • seeking citizens' input and comments regarding the design of a new fire hall
  • being inclusive and accessible by offering a variety of opportunities for citizen input
  • the communications plan for this project includes mail-outs and local advertising to introduce the website as the primary source of information for the citizens of Hornby Island
  • the CVRD also plans to hold public outreach events including public meetings and open house meetings
