Together We Can Actively Build Our Community

ACTIVATE THE PLANS

The City of Fort St. John’s Official Community Plan (OCP), was updated over the last 2 years through community participation, and approved in August 2018. This policy document is the community’s vision addressing critical issues such as diversity, quality of life, the value of partnerships, land development, economic opportunity and environmental sustainability. I stand behind these plans and we now need to take action related to downtown, vacant lots, parks and recreation, transportation and energy literacy for the continued growth and betterment of our community.

 

BUILD FOR TOMORROW

To support our growth, we must plan and allocate funds to maintain and update our infrastructure and services.
– Schools (one open, one under construction and one more to be announced soon)
– Police Detachment
– Downtown Infrastructure
– Nursing School & continued learning opportunities in the North
– Muli-use Recreation & Leisure Facility
– Upgrade our parks and continue to add more community trails
– Continue paving & upgrading our roads, sidewalks & lighting
– We need to work on the creation of a Community Art Policy

 

COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE & CELEBRATE

Participation and input from community stakeholders matters. I want actions that foster communication and collaboration to continue with:
– The residents Of Fort St. John
– Our Peace River Regional District
– The Regional First Nation Communities
– Our Northern Health Authority
– Our Educational Institutions
– Our RCMP
– Our Provincial Government
– The Resource Municipalities Coalition
– Our Chamber Of Commerce and local business owners
– All Investors and Developers interested in growing our community

 

Our community’s success relies on these relationships; let’s work together, and let’s celebrate together.
