Position Statements

We want you to know where the Chamber stands on important local issues. If you are a member and disagree with a position we are taking on your behalf, we would like to hear from you. If we receive many comments on a position we will seek out a spokesperson to attend our board meeting and present an alternative position for the board’s consideration.

Position: The Chamber supports the Town’s process for consideration of Development (residential and commercial) projects and encourages the ongoing approval of the Official Community Plan amendment needed to continue that process.
