The City of Castlegar invites residents to join them in person to have a say on the City’s Community Plan. 

We’re updating our Community Plan, Zoning Bylaw, and Downtown Design Guidelines and want to understand what type of community you want to live in and establish a strong vision and goals for a bright future!

“The City wants to ensure that we provide an opportunity to hear from those that typically find it more challenging to participate or provide feedback on City initiatives,” says City of Castlegar Manager of Planning, Development and Sustainability, Meeri Durand. “In addition to these events, we will be meeting residents where they are at, by popping up where people spend their time.”
