Islands Trust Meeting

I just wanted to express my appreciation for the good turnout for today's meeting of the Lasqueti Local Trust Committee. It was really good to see, and hear from, so many of you. I sincerely hope that as we move forward with Official Community Plan (OCP) and Land Use Bylaw (LUB) review that even more people will be engaged in the process.
