[ARCHIVED] CSRD Postpones Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Process

Sorrento Blind Bay Incorporation Study - Public Events Postponed Due to COVID-19

Friday, September 17, 2021

In response to the most recent public health order the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has decided to push the pause button on the Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Study community engagement process. This decision was taken after canvassing members of the Incorporation Study Advisory Committee, and consulting the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.

Currently, the number of people that can gather indoors in the Interior Health region, without proof of full vaccination, is 50. An upcoming discussion panel and two open house events set for late September and early October were designed for far larger community attendance.

Any incorporation process is firmly rooted in the need for input, engagement and feedback from affected residents. As a result of these attendance limitations and in the interest of providing a safe environment for the community to discuss this important initiative, the CSRD will be putting the process on hold at this time.

The following in-person public engagement events will now be postponed in hopes of resuming the in-person engagement events in late January, 2022:

  • An Incorporation Discussion Panel set for September 25
  • An Open House set for September 29
  • An Open House set for October 5

New dates will be set for these meetings and will be publicly advertised, as well as promoted through the CSRD's website and the CSRD's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms.

Electoral Area C residents may still view the most up-to-date information on the study process at the Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Study page on the CSRD website. This includes a Frequently Asked Questions section with the ability for residents to continue to submit their questions online.
