Update on the Rural Community Feasibility Study – Hanwell - Kingsclear

In August, the HK Rural Community Project Committee, accompanied by the Dept of Local Government, produced a Rural Community Feasibility Study for both Hanwell and Kingsclear LSDs to become one combined Rural Community.

That report was posted on the HKRC website at www.HKRC.ca.

Mr Michaud, the chair of the both the HKRC and Hanwell Steering committee, stated “In August, the HK Rural Community Project Committee held a meeting to review the results from the telephone survey. The committee, comprised of residents from both the Hanwell and Kingsclear LSD, deliberated on the survey results before voting on the direction of the Rural Community Project.  In light of the telephone survey, the Committee voted to become two independent rural communities.

Mr. Michaud also went one to say. “That report still validates all the reasons why Hanwell should become a Rural Community.  I would encourage all residents of Hanwell to get out and vote YES on December 2nd, 2013”.
