[ARCHIVED] Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Study Meetings Moved Online

SMN Incorporation Online Meetings OnlyFriday, January 14, 2022

Due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant in the area, all Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation meetings scheduled for January have been changed to online attendance only.

In making the decision to cancel the in-person components of the events, it was decided the safety of the public, staff and committee members must be the top priority.

All residents are encouraged to join the meetings online. The public will be able to participate in the live-streamed sessions by asking questions or making observations. Information on how to use Zoom and participate in the meeting can be found at the Public Participation page of the website For those who can not watch live, recordings of the open houses and discussion panel will also be posted to the Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Study webpage as soon as possible after the meetings.

These events include:
