The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has released the official results from a referendum held in Spences Bridge, and the majority have voted against establishing a Community Park and Recreation Financial Contribution Service within a portion of Electoral Area “I” (Blue Sky Country).
Fifty voters responded “No”, while 49 replied “Yes” in response to the ballot question “Are you in favour of the TNRD adoption Bylaw No. 2461 that will:
Establish the ‘Spences Bridge Community Park and Recreation Service Area’ within a portion of Electoral Area ‘I’ (Blue Sky Country); and
Annually requisition the greater of $8,000 or $0.411/$1,000 of net taxable value of land and improvement for the service?”
The referendum on establishment of an annual financial contribution for a community park has therefore been defeated.
