Alternative Approval Process
The Regional Board is using the Alternate Approval Process (AAP) to seek approval of the electors for the Gotta Go Roadside Facilities Service Establishment Bylaw.
AAP is an option local governments may use to seek approval from the public for things like long-term borrowing, a boundary extension, or to establish a new regional district service.
AAP requires that 10% or more of eligible voters sign and submit a form if they think that the local government should not proceed with the new service without holding a full assent voting process (commonly referred to as a referendum).
In an AAP, only those who object to the service being approved in this way, are required to respond. Electors who support the service, and feel that AAP is an acceptable way to measure the level of public support for the service, are not required to respond.
Public engagement has concluded for this project.
