Now that the Board has approved the bylaws, a front-ender agreement has been developed so that potential developers can pre-purchase development units. This will allow future development to pay for a large portion of the sewer system in advance.
With these pieces in place, and $140,000 in Area H Community Works Funds, the project will have the funding source to move forward with consultation, design of the outfall and construction of the collection, treatment and effluent disposal systems. A project team will be established to conduct consultation and work with provincial and federal regulators. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
Petitions were provided to owners of 99 properties, representing 107 parcels in the proposed Bowser Sanitary Sewer Service Area. Of the 107 parcels, 67 (62.6%), are in favour of proceeding with the project. These parcels represent 67.7% of the net taxable value of all land and improvements within the proposed service area.
The results of the petition and supporting bylaws will be presented to the RDN Board of Directors at the August 22, 2017 regularly scheduled Board Meeting to determine if the project will proceed. More information is available in the agenda for the August 22 Regular Board Meeting (please see the "Bowser Village Sanitary Sewer Service - Bylaws 1760, 1761 and 1765, 2017" Board Report on pages 40 to 101).
Following the August 22 Board Meeting, a project update will be released communicating the outcomes of the meeting and next steps for the project. Please check back for more information at that time.
