The Comox Town Residents’ Association will be hosting their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, May 8th in the Black Fin Pub Conference Room (below the Black Fin Pub) at 132 Port Augusta Street in Comox. Doors will open at 7:00pm and the meeting will begin at 7:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
Guest Speaker Ian Moul is a professional Biologist and Landscape Ecologist living and working in the Comox Valley. Much of his career has focused on natural habitat protection in developed areas, particularly the preservation of Bald Eagle and Great Blue Heron nest trees. Ian will speak about the Town of Comox’s Urban Forest Management Plan. The Plan is based on a 2012 report to the Town of Comox by Mumby’s Arboriculture Consulting, in which Ian acted as a contributing biologist and co-author.
The CTRA is a small but active group of concerned citizens that work together to maintain the livability, sustainability and charming character of Comox. President Kerry Dawson hopes to see some new faces attend the meeting.
“The face of Comox is changing. We need an active engaged citizenry to make sure our voices are heard, and our concerns are addressed. This Town is a very special place and we need more people who recognize this to take an active interest in the Town’s future,” said Dawson.
Membership in the CTRA is a bargain at just $10 per year, per household. There are open positions on the Executive, so the public is invited to come out and find out more about this historic group and to learn about the Town’s plan to manage trees.
