Interested in being part of a paid 2010 team to help review the Cortes Official Community Plan?? The formal 'Request for Proposals' has been posted by the Strathcona Regional District after having received much input from the Cortes OCP review team on selection criteria and importance of having a consultant team than had a clear understanding of rural planning and island life.
One way of assuring this is to have Cortesians participate in the bid process. Find attached the one-page with contact info or visit www.strathconard.ca/section_business/
to download the same one page from the small 'print friendly version' icon. To receive the full bid package, you will need to contact Russ Hotsenpiller directly. Bids are due by January 19th.
The consultant will help guide the community through the review process and draft the revised plan. This consultant could be from Cortes or beyond, and collaborative bids are also very welcome from Cortes and off-island partnerships. If you are interested in working with an on/off-island team please contact Julia Rendall from the Cortes OCP review committee for more info, 250-935-6681, jumarcortesmsn.com. She will be sharing contact information with interested off-island consultants.
