As the province of BC restarts its economy, the CVRD is transitioning from response to the pandemic and focussing on renwal of local government services in the Comox Valley. The short video explains how the CVRD is rethinking our services and considering how we can better respond to priorities of our residents to aid in our community's recovery during these new normal times.
In March 2020, the government of British Columbia declared a state of emergency as the Comox Valley, along with other communities in Canada and around the world, responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 12, the Board adopted a renewal plan for the review sevice levels and all necessary, critical and functional projects slated for the next five years. Recommended actions for the plan were brought forward to the relevant committees, commissions and partners for review over the summer. For more information about the renewal plan read the press release or refer to the staff report for additional context and supporting materials.
In addition, the CVRD has taken numerous actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which are grouped around the CVRD's Core Services, including the Comox Strathcona Waste Management service. A supplemental report was also prepared to pull together additional information and programs for consideration through the pandemic. This was presented to the board on August 25, 2020.
Approved actions will be included in a final document to be reviewed for adoption by the Board at its strategic planning session in September 2020. This plan is called Rethink Comox Valley and will be made available to residents later this fall. Watch this page for more details.
