PROPOSED BOUNDARY EXTENSION

The Council of the City of Dawson Creek intends to ask the Minister of Community Sport and Cultural Development to include the land shown crosshatched in red on the map below into the City’s municipal boundaries in order to access City services for development purposes:

MAp

The legal descriptions are:

  • SW ¼ Section 20 Township 78 Range 15 W6M (PID 010-764-011)
  • N ½ Section 3 Township 78 Range 15 W6M (PID 014-266-270)

ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS

The City may continue with the boundary extension request if less than ten percent of the municipal electors (744) object to the Alternative Approval Process, by requesting that a majority vote be held instead.  Objections can only be received from qualified electors who have completed and submitted the approved Elector Response Form before 4:30 pm on August 15, 2016.

ELIGIBILITY

Resident Elector – You are allowed to submit an Elector Response Form as a resident elector if you are age 18 or older, are a Canadian citizen, have lived in BC for at least six months, and have been a resident of the City of Dawson Creek for at least the last 30 days.

Non-Resident Elector – You are allowed to submit an Elector Response Form as a non-resident property elector if you are age 18 or older, are a Canadian citizen, have lived in BC for at least six months, have owned and held registered title (in your own personal name) to a property in the City of Dawson Creek for at least the last 30 days, and do not qualify as a resident elector. NOTE: Only one non-resident property elector may submit an Elector Response Form per property, regardless of how many owners there may be.

If less than ten percent (744) of municipal electors submit an Elector Response Form, the boundary extension request will be deemed to have the approval of the electors and the City of Dawson Creek may send the application to Cabinet for approval. For the purpose of the alternative approval process, the number of electors is calculated as 7444.

Elector Response Forms are available from City Hall, 10105 – 12 A Street, during regular business hours or can be requested by emailing admin@dawsoncreek.ca . The form may also be downloaded here: Elector Response Form
