Policy Statement Review

Another item that Trust Council will be considering, and I'd like your feedback on, is to undertake a major project to review and update the Trust Policy Statement, which is the fundamental document setting out what the Islands Trust is supposed to do. All Local Trust Committee Official Community Plans and Land Use Bylaws must conform with the Policy Statement.

Last year, Trust Council established a task force to see if the Policy Statement needed revision and amendment. They recommended a full review. Their report, including lots of appendices, is at The Island Trust has won a grant that will cover most of the cost of the review and amendment, which is to include full public participation, over the next two years or so.

The current Policy Statement and information about it is at:

Send comments (or questions) about the Trust Policy Review to me: pjohnston [at] islandstrust [dot] bc [dot] ca

You could also send them to Susan: smorrison [at] islandstrust [dot] bc [dot] ca

If you have quick questions or want more information, call me 8785 next week.
