District updates online mapping
Powell River Regional District has released a new public online map that covers the boundaries of the entire regional district, including the City of Powell River.
Users can view and access property information such as house numbers and legal descriptions, contours and 2012 aerial imagery. The base map shows electoral area boundaries, property lines, lakes, water courses and regional parks.
Available tools within the map include the ability to turn mapping layers on and off, scroll in and out, show coordinates and even save, print and email maps.
“These tools make the mapping user-friendly and informative and allow the end user to produce maps that suit their individual needs,” said Nancy Schmeister, information services coordinator.
The mapping tool is available by following the link on the regional district’s website.
City of Powell River council is going on the road.
City officials are holding a committee-of-the-whole meeting at 1 pm on Thursday, October 3 in the Max Cameron Theatre at Brooks Secondary School.
“One thing that council fully is aware of is that the voice of youth in our community needs to be heard, heard more often,” said Councillor Jim Palm, who also works at Brooks, during the September 12 council meeting. “We value their input.”
Mayor Dave Formosa met with Kathy Rothwell, Brooks’ principal, in June to discuss forming a youth shadow council.
Holding a committee meeting in Brooks will give students an opportunity to learn more about council proceedings.
