Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District: Lucas Banton - Director Candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 8:00 a.m.

It’s been almost two years since I took the oath of office to represent the residents of Cherry Creek and a great deal has been accomplished during that time.

Gas tax funds: This was one of the main reasons for putting my name forward in the by-election. I felt strongly that Cherry Creek needed solid representation on this critical matter.

It took nine months to win over the support of the other area directors to gain $385,000 for main line upgrades to our water system.

Dangerous dog bylaw: Driven by concerned parents who have had unfortunate experiences with loose dogs in the area, this bylaw does not apply to dogs that are not dangerous. Residents can still have guard dogs protecting their property.

I had regional district staff apply for a $10,000 water system capital planning assessment grant. Cherry Creek Hall fell on hard times and a leaking roof was a significant concern. Using a grant, the hall received $20,000 for the necessary repairs.

If re-elected, my objectives would be to bring in new gas tax funds, investigate how the Build Canada Fund can improve our infrastructure and improve and expand Cherry Creek Trail.

Thank you for your support.
