Dear Mr. Ellingsen
Re: Long Service Acknowledgement - Advisory Planning Commission
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Strathcona Regional District, I wish to acknowledge with gratitude the generous contribution of your time and community expertise as an active member of the Electoral Area B (Cortes Island) Advisory Planning Commission. Strathcona Regional District records indicate that you were an inaugural member of this commission dating back to 1969 which makes you one of the longest serving, or possibly the longest serving, member of an Advisory Planning Commission in British Columbia until your retirement in 2011.
The Cortes Island community is the true beneficiary of 42 years of advisory input related to lands use activities on Cortes Island. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
Thank you once again and sincerely,
Strathonca Regional District
