Public engagement for the Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program Funding (CIP/AAP) is now open on the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) website.
To participate in the online public engagement process, please click here.
The public engagement period will be from May 1, 2020 at 8 a.m. to May 11, 2020 at 4:30 p.m.
Normally, public input into the grant awards would be received at community meetings held throughout the region every April. Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings, staff from the RDCK have worked closely with Columbia Basin Trust to develop an online engagement tool to ensure the grant process moves forward. This tool will allow the public to give their feedback on proposed projects for the area in which they live.
Please note that the online engagement tool is not a voting system, but a way for the public to provide the feedback on projects they feel are most important to the area they live in. Once collected, all feedback will be shared with each area’s adjudication committee for their review and consideration.
