Roger Brooks Assessment of Port McNeill

Roger Brooks Community Assessment now available for viewing

It was a few short weeks ago Roger Brooks presented to a packed house at the Gate House Theatre. We had hoped to have a special evening viewing but with the COVID-19 crisis in full swing, that is no longer an option.

Since many of you may have exhausted your Netflix options we are making the full length presentation available for you to view online. Please keep an open mind as Roger Brooks shares his ideas and suggestions for what our future could look like.

As soon as the self distancing has been lifted, we will begin brainstorming sessions. The data compiled in his written report will also be included in the updating of our Official Community Plan, commencing as soon as we are able to.

Despite the current situation we find ourselves in, we still believe the future for Port McNeill is a bright one!

On behalf of Town Council,

Mayor Gaby Wickstrom
