SLRD moves into community engagement phase of Housing Need and Demand Study
In July 2019, the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) began moving ahead with the development of a Housing Need and Demand Study for all SLRD electoral areas. This plan is being developed following a successful funding application to the BC Rural Dividend Fund (Fifth Intake). Urban Matters has been engaged to lead the study.
UPDATE: The Seton Fire Service Survey is now closed.
Seton residents encouraged to participate in Fire Service Survey
Survey extended to October 21, 2019
The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) understands that Seton residents and property owners have questions about changes to fire protection services in the Seton Valley, and the SLRD wants to ensure that residents have the information to determine the best approach for the community.
The SLRD’s Bylaw 480 (1992) establishes a fire protection area for the Seton community. The Seton Valley Volunteer Fire Department (SVVFD) has been operated by the Seton Valley Volunteer Firefighters Society (the Society) on behalf of the SLRD. In August, 2019, Bylaw 480 (1992) was amended to clarify the structure of the existing service delivery method.
The Society appoints the fire chief and owns all equipment and apparatus, while the fire hall is owned by the SLRD.
Please join us!
Residents of the Seton area are invited to join the SLRD for a public information meeting to discuss changes to regulations, cost implications and options for delivery of fire services in the community.
- The meeting will take place from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at Crane Hall, Sk'il' Mountain Community School, 100 Sk'il' Mountain Road in Shalalth, BC.
This meeting is an opportunity for residents to learn about their existing fire service and discuss the options for moving forward.
