Agenda set for FAC meeting

Gabriola Ferry Advisory Committee’s Spring meeting with BC Ferries takes place at The Haven (240 Davis Road) on Tuesday, May 27 from 8.45am until 11am.  A copy of the agenda can be downloaded here.

Our main objective for this meeting is to review the impact of the April 28 schedule change and investigate what adjustments might be desirable.  Another major concern is traffic management on Taylor Bay Road, where queues have become longer and hazardous U-turns are becoming more of an issue.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting; if you wish to raise an issue with BC Ferries please contact the Chair in advance of the meeting and we will ensure that time is available for you to speak. However, this is not an open house session and submissions from the public must be notified in advance. If you’re not able to attend, but would like to have a question raised, please feel free to email us at gabriola.fac@gmail.com

Understandably, ferry cuts have been an emotive issue for Gabriolans over recent months, but we do ask everyone to keep in mind that the role of the FAC is to enable dialogue with BC Ferries’ managers on local ferry service issues and to ensure we have sufficient time to address these immediate problems,  the meeting will not debate government policy or non-ferry alternatives.
