Opportunity with Waterfront Development Committee

October 23, 2009 – City Council announced today that it is seeking to appoint one representative on the Waterfront Development Committee to fill a vacancy for a term that expires on Nov. 30, 2010. The Waterfront Development Committee provides advice to Council on how best to develop the City’s 52 kilometres of waterfront.

After serving on the committee for three years, Trina Rawn is relocating to Kenora.

“Ms. Rawn was born, raised and educated in Northwestern Ontario, and brought a diverse background to the committee with special interests in the natural environment as well as development within the North,” said Councillor Mark Bentz, Chair of the Waterfront Development Committee. “I would like to thank Trina for her commitment to this project; she will be missed by the committee and the City of Thunder Bay.”
“The new member of the Committee will assist in making recommendations to Council for future development of waterfront lands,” he added. “The goal is to achieve a balance in the development of full mixed-use potential in an environmentally and economically sustainable manner.”

Candidates with diverse backgrounds and interest in the future use of waterfront property to the overall benefit of the community are encouraged to apply.  All candidates must be at least 18 years of age, electors and residents of Ontario; and must maintain residency throughout the appointment.

Candidates will also need to include up to 250 words on their vision for the 52 kilometres of waterfront
