Mission – The preliminary count of responses received through the Alternative Approval Process shows 422 qualified electors, or only 1.47% of eligible electors, opposed seeking to reclassify Mission as a City.
The Certified results will be presented to Council at the October 21, 2019 regular meeting of Council. The alternative approval process ran for seven weeks, from August 30, 2019 through October 11, 2019, at a total of $5,686.
Mayor Pam Alexis said, “It is encouraging that the vast majority of people recognize and support Council’s vision for moving Mission forward. This initiative has been a great check-in with the community and establishes an important step in that process.”
The next step for the municipality is to formally request the reclassification by letter to the Provincial Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
