Oak Bay is looking for a few good people

…to serve on various boards and committees. The terms run for one or two years and start in December. So which committees need people?

Advisory Design Committee

This group works with developers and builders looking to construct new buildings in the municipality from a design perspective. However, all applicants must be registered architects with the Architectural Institute of BC, which has a fairly stringent application process.

Oak Bay Parks and Recreation Commission

They oversee the running of the various facilities and programs that Recreation Oak Bay runs. Interest in parks and recreation recommended.

Recognition of Renovation and Building Achievement Awards Panel

This little known group hands out awards for new developments and renos.

Heritage Committee

The Heritage Commitee is responsible for the historical archives, researches various historical mattesr and maintains inventories of historical properties, including those on the Heritage Register as well as a whole host of other responsibilities. This is not the Heritage Advisory Panel, which deals more directly with the Heritage Register and other regulatory matters. The full division of labour between them and the Heritage Foundation is clearly explained on this Heritage Oak Bay page.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday, November 3rd. and needs to go to Lorraine Hilton, the municipal secretary. Full details here (PDF).
