Collaborative Projects

Collaborative Projects Make Better Communities

If you’re an individual, group, or business with a good idea for a community-driven initiative, Bowen Island Municipality wants to hear from you.

We want to help enable small-scale or early-stage collaborative projects and provide guidance on how to get your idea off to a strong start.

What’s a collaborative project?

It’s infrastructure or an initiative intended for public use or participation for community enjoyment and/or service enhancements.

What are some recent examples?

  • The expansion at Bowen Children’s Centre
  • The new park at Athletic Field
  • The proposed playground at Arbutus Ridge
  • The proposed bike park behind BICS

What are the key project criteria?

  • Consistent with the Official Community Plan and related Municipal Master Plans
  • Meets community needs and has demonstrated community support
  • Describes the roles and responsibilities of all parties (including the Municipality)
  • Identifies benefits, costs, and risks, both short and long term

What are my next steps?

What is a delegation?

It’s your opportunity to meet in person with Municipal Council. Presenters often prepare a simple, informative slideshow or handout. To request a delegation time, email bim@bimbc.ca at least 10 days before your desired meeting date. Generally, only one delegation is scheduled for each meeting. (See Bowen Island Municipality Procedure Bylaw No. 111, 2004.)
