The Village of Lions Bay staff, will from time to time go through changes. We understand that our role is to minimize challenge and optimize opportunity, when change presents itself.
Thus, we wish to communicate to Village residents that we are moving forward with these goals in mind.
A Village that we can be proud of…
The beautiful vistas of Lions Bay are playgrounds for bears, dolphins, raccoons, orca whales, birds and our very playful seals.
Howe Sound has become so recovered that it has become the feeding grounds for fish stock, including salmon, dolphins, orca whales and seals. This summer you could see the bottom of the ocean from 20 feet ~ Wow, it was a special summer !
VILLAGE of LIONS BAY WATER CONSERVATION PROCEDURES ARE NOW IN EFFECT
The warm summer has resulted in increased water usage which can put a strain on our water reservoirs. Additionally, over the past few weeks you may have noticed a decreasing volume of water flowing down the creeks.
The Increased demand due to warm weather combined with a decreased supply from the creeks means that during peak hours, the Village may not be able to maintain an adequate supply of water. To help mitigate this scenario, the Village requires your assistance in observing the following water conservation procedures listed below:
The Community continues to be excited by the Community Centre Renewal and is anxiously awaiting proceeding with a project that the community will be proud of. Council will ensure these elements are present.
Council is moving forward with the ‘Unified Plan’. The Architect, Russ Meiklejohn and his engineering team have been working to complete the drawings for Tender. It will be a Fixed Price Tender request.
The ‘Unified Plan’ Design, will facilitate a vibrant activity environment for all.
The Unified Design includes removing the Municipal Office building, and replacing it with a two storey ‘new construction’ building, with the Municipal Office on the first floor, and new multi-purpose space on the second floor, with accessible washrooms.
The Community Centre Renewal ‘Unified Plan’ provides the multi-purpose, gym/hall, kitchen, community livingroom, accessible washrooms, balcony, patio and office spaces within the context of a single interconnected building, made up of the renovated and new construction portions. This is very exciting !
This space will provide opportunities for Recreation, the Arts, the Library, the Historical Society, Music, Theatre, Playgroup, and as an overall learning space.
People of all ages will enjoy the use of the Centre and the child within us can grow, learn and have fun!
The Invitation to Tender will be posted in mid-September, 2013 for a two week period. This follows a Request For Information & Qualifications. A review of the Tender documents will then occur.
