REPORT

From: Lisa Griffith, Planner

Date: September 13, 2005

Re: Lack of endorsement of M.O.U. by District of Lillooet Council

Recommendation:

THAT the Regional Board request that the Minister of Community Services appoint a facilitator to assist the District of Lillooet and the other participants to reach agreement on the RGS Memorandum of Understanding while the Project Team continues to move forward and focus on the content of the RGS.

Who Votes: All; Count: Directors; Decision: Majority Administrator’s Comments:

I concur with the recommendation. P.R.E.

Background

Based on an email dated July 17th, 2005 received from the Lillooet Administrator, and verbal confirmation from the District of Lillooet SLRD Board member at the July 25th Board Meeting, SLRD Planning Staff understood that the Council of the District of Lillooet had endorsed the RGS Memorandum of Understanding (M.O.U.). Consequently, a motion was passed by the Regional Board to endorse the M.O.U. at the July 25th Board Meeting (Gimse, Macri and Oakley opposed).

It has since come to our attention that the District of Lillooet had not formally endorsed the M.O.U.

in June as advised, but simply passed a motion “to receive and file”. Subsequently, at their August 15th meeting, it was moved by Councillor Roshard, and seconded by Councillor Anderson,

“That a letter be forwarded to the Squamish Lillooet Regional District advising that Council does not support the Memorandum of Understanding containing the inclusion of the restrictions on development in existing Non-Urban communities.”

On August 26, 2005 the SLRD received correspondence dated August 18, 2005 with respect to outstanding concerns the District of Lillooet Council has with the M.O.U. and restrictions to potential developments in the north.

SLRD Regular Agenda, Sept. 19, 2005

(28)

- 2 -

Alternative Actions

The following are options the Regional Board may consider:

1) Accept lack of unanimity on the RGS Memorandum of Understanding and move towards completion of the RGS which should address specific and contentious concerns;

2) Revisit the M.O.U. at the next Elected Officials Forum to resolve outstanding issues;

3) Reduce the scope of the M.O.U. to eliminate contentious elements;

4) Reduce the geographic scope of the RGS to focus on Electoral Areas C and D, Village of Pemberton, Resort Municipality of Whistler, and the District of Squamish, and explore an alternative process to address sub-regional issues in the northern part of the Regional District such as economic development and transportation;

5) Request the Minister of Community Services to appoint a facilitator to assist the District of Lillooet and the other participants to reach agreement on the M.O.U., while the RGS Project Team continues to focus and move forward on the content of the RGS.

Option 1 would see all parties except the District of Lillooet signing off on the M.O.U. Staff believes that while this may be an option, it would not be in the spirit of relationship-building, and may possibly further alienate the District of Lillooet from the RGS process.

Option 2 is a plausible option, especially given the timing for an upcoming Elected Officials Forum on October 12, 2005. However, in an effort to move forward, rather than opening up dialogue and rehashing issues that could potentially threaten progress made to date and recognizing that valuable time and resources have been spent over the last eight months to reach consensus to this point, this is not the preferred option.

Option 3 may give the District of Lillooet the comfort level they are seeking; however, it would most likely not be a satisfactory option to the other municipalities. Also this option somewhat discredits the work and time invested by members of the Elected Officials Forums and the RGS Steering Committee on the current wording of the M.O.U.

Option 4, the development of a sub-regional RGS, is enabled by the legislation and is the approach being taken by the Okanagan-Similkameen Regional District in the development of their RGS.

Option 4 was discussed informally by Steering Committee members in the Spring; however, the District of Lillooet staff member did not attend that meeting and was therefore not available to participate in this discussion. The Steering Committee did not pursue the matter further. This option would simplify the RGS process by narrowing the range of issues to be addressed. However, the completed RGS would set a long-term vision for the future of only one part of the region, rather than the entire region.

Staff recommend Option 5 as the preferred option. Section 856 of the Local Government Act provides the opportunity for any participant in the Growth Strategy to request the Minister appoint a facilitator. According to s. 856 the facilitator is to provide assistance if requested to do so by the SLRD Regular Agenda, Sept. 19, 2005

(29)

proposing board or an affected local government. An appointed facilitator can assist local governments by facilitating negotiations, facilitating the resolution of anticipated objections, assisting local governments in setting up and using non-binding resolution processes, and facilitating the involvement of other provincial agencies. Once requested, the proposing board and affected local governments must agree to provide information and cooperate with the facilitator in fulfilling his or her responsibilities.

Regional Growth Strategy Status Report RGS Steering Committee Meeting Highlights

There is a Steering Committee Meeting scheduled for September 15, 2005 in Pemberton. At that time, the Project Team will solicit comments from the Steering Committee members on a revised work-plan to complete the remainder of the RGS. The revised work plan calls for a post municipal election Elected Officials Forum at the end of January and a two day intensive regional planning charrette in the Spring of 2006. The purpose of the planning charrette will be to gather stakeholders for round table discussions aimed at developing strategies and actions around the key issue areas of the RGS. Highlights from the Sept. 15th RGS Steering Committee may be reported verbally at the Sept. 19 Regional Board Meeting.

Upcoming Elected Officials Forum

An Elected Officials Forum is proposed for Wednesday October 12 from 9:30am to 12:00pm in Squamish at the Best Western Sea to Sky Hotel. The meeting will focus on wrapping up outstanding items from the Regional Issues, Vision and Goals document and it will also provide an opportunity to inform all elected officials of the projected work plan for the next 12 months. The Project Team feel it is important to hold one more EOF before the fall municipal election to conclude work began with the current members in October 2004, before we move on the next stage of the RGS work-plan and public consultation program.

REPORT

Regional Board

From: Wendy Horan, Waste Reduction Coordinator

Date: September 19, 2005

Re: Approval of Amended Solid Waste Management Plan

Recommendation:

THAT the amended Solid Waste Management Plan be adopted by the Regional Board.

Administrator’s Comments:

Background:

In July 2005 the Regional District made a formal request to the Minister of Environment,

Honourable Barry Penner that the SLRD be permitted to amend section 2.2.2.1 (Mixed Waste) of the Solid Waste Management Plan (attached Schedule A). This amendment describes how proposed changes to the SLRD’s residual waste management system will be handled in the southern part of the region.

On August 23, 2005 the Minister approved the amendment in accordance with section 24(5) of the Environmental Management Act. Minister Penner also stated that the public consultation and review process was adequate for the amendment requested.

Respectfully submitted,

From: Allison Macdonald

Re: Fraser Basin Council representative

Recommendation:

THAT Director _________________ be appointed SLRD representative to the Fraser Basin Council for the balance of 2005;

AND THAT Director ___________________ be appointed Alternate representative.

Administrator’s Comments:

Background:

As Director O’Reilly will not be able to attend meetings of the Fraser Basin Council, the Board should consider appointing an interim representative for the balance of 2005. Director Gimse serves as the Alternate, so if she moves into the position of Fraser Basin Council representative, a new alternate rep will need to be appointed.

REPORT

Regional Board

From: Paul R. Edgington, Administrator

Date: January 28, 2005

Re: Bylaw 921 – SLRD Emergency Planning Service Establishment By-law

Recommendation:

THAT Bylaw No. 921, cited as Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Emergency Planning Service Establishment By-law No. 921-2004, be introduced and read a first, second and third time.

Background:

Bylaw 921 will establish a service area for emergency planning. There is no maximum requisition limit in the bylaw. We have received confirmation that Section 800.1(2)(e) of the Local Government Act exempts the bylaw from the requirement to set out the maximum requisition amount, as development and implementation of emergency plans and establishment of an organization in that regard are programs in preparation for emergencies.

Each participating director will be required to consent in writing to the bylaw, pursuant to s. 805 of the Local Government Act. If a director refuses to consent to the bylaw, the Board can

dispense with the approval and adopt the bylaw with a 2/3 vote.
