The Sorrento - Blind Bay Incorporation Committee is a group of citizens appointed by the Columbia - Shuswap Regional District to consider whether to recommend that the communities of Sorrento and Blind Bay should be incorporated as a municipality under BC law.
The next meeting of the incorporation committee is Thursday, Feb. 11, at 6 pm and will be held on-line due to pandemic restrictions.
A detailed agenda for the meeting, which includes an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions, is posted at the link above.
The committee, which has the services of an independent consultant, will make a recommendation regarding possible incorporation after careful review.
Sorrento Centre Executive Director Michael Shapcott is one of the local citizens appointed to the incorporation committee. "There are many technical considerations regarding possible incorporation," says Shapcott. "The key issue for me is whether incorporation will help Sorrento and Blind Bay continue to grow as strong, heathy, dynamic and caring communities."
Everyone is welcome to join the virtual meeting on Thursday evening.
