Central Coast Regional District

The Central Coast Regional District (CCRD) is nestled in the heart of the mid coast and is home to some of British Columbia´s most spectacular scenery and natural beauty. The area encompasses some 25,000 square kilometres and includes five electoral areas in the unincorporated communities of Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Denny Island, Ocean Falls and Oweekeno.

Incorporated in 1968, the CCRD is a regional government serving a population of less than 4,000 residents. The Regional District provides local and regional protective, recreational, environmental and transportation services to area ratepayers.

CCRD MANDATE

Everything that the Regional District does fits into three categories. The first category is to provide services such as fire protection, water systems and street lighting to residents in the rural areas. These services are generally confined to small geographic areas.

The second category is to provide services to a larger geographic area where it doesn´t make sense to duplicate that service for each area. Some examples are Land Use Planning, Economic Development, and regional Library services.

The third category the Board gets involved in is to try to influence the Federal or Provincial Government.

Did you know? Fact Sheets about the CCRD and governance in the region are now available on our website! Please visit the Governance Study page for more information about the current Diagnostic Governance and Service Delivery Study!

TOWARD RECONCILIATION: WUIKINUXV MEMBER FRANK JOHNSON APPOINTED TO CCRD

The first regularly scheduled CCRD board of directors meeting was held on February 9 in Bella Coola. The next meeting will be held on Thursday March 9, 2017. As always, the public are welcome to attend.

A presentation from the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association (CCCTA) provided background information on the organization´s efforts to bring the Municipal and Regional District Tax (MRDT) to the tourism marketing region, which encompasses all communities in the Central Coast Regional District. The MRDT will be structured such that there will be a dedicated board formed to discuss the details of how, when and where the money is distributed.  Board membership will be formed via annual local elections through the participants, therefore only accommodators collecting the tax would be eligible to vote. The CCRD will be providing a letter in support of the introduction of the MRDT in the CCCTA tourism region.

The Draft copy of the CCRD Governance and Service Delivery Study was received by the board of directors. A full administration report has been requested for the April board meeting, including comments from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development.
  
Additional highlights from the February board meeting include the following:
• Bella Coola Community Support Society, Denny Island Community Development Association, Discovery Coast Music Festival, and the Bella Coola Valley Ridge Riders were awarded CCRD Grant-in-Aid funds. For a complete list of recipients please the Finance section of our webpage.
• The financial report indicated that the 2.37% increase to the tax requisition are insufficient to support future asset replacement.  This relates to all services and functions of the regional district.
• A wildfire event east of Denny Island was responded to by the BC Wildfire Service with support of the Bella Bella Fire Department and the RCMP.

Did You Know that the CCRD records regularly scheduled board meetings and makes the recordings available on our website via Soundcloud for a period of 3 months?  Click the link below for the recording.

The CCRD Board of Directors passed a resolution to pursue recording options of regularly scheduled meetings for the sole purpose of enabling access to meetings for residents who live in remote areas of the Central Coast Regional District.

Disclaimer - The recording of board meetings is in a trial period and therefore technical, operational, and quality control issues are currently being worked out.  We appreciate your patience as we work through these issues.
