Black Creek Community Association funding review

Seeking increase in the requisition amount from the Comox Valley Regional District

The public is invited to discuss the Black Creek Community Association’s request for an increase in the requisition amount from the Comox Valley Regional District at a public consultation/open house Thursday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Black Creek Community Centre.

The CVRD is reviewing amending its current contribution service agreement to increase the maximum requisition by 25 per cent (bringing the current funding from $53,000 to $65,500), effective Jan. 1, 2016. All money received from the CVRD goes toward operating the community centre facility. Area C director Edwin Grieve will be in attendance, and the BCCA annual budget will also be presented. Refreshments will follow.  The non-profit Black Creek Community Centre has seen significant growth in community usage. The BCCA is encouraging the public to attend and provide feedback as part of this review process. Please contact BCCA Executive Director, Dana Starritt for more information at
