Communications.

Many people don’t understand what the CSRD does, the issues it faces, what it has achieved, and where it’s headed. There’s confusion about budgeting, finance, policies, permitting, and procedures, as well as mandates and responsibilities. To help address this, I’ve authored a newspaper column on key topics, advocated for a CSRD newsletter, collaborated with community groups on issues, and recommended a CSRD annual report.

By improving communications there will be a greater appreciation of the good work being done by CSRD staff and elected officials.
