April 29, 2017 – Revitalization update Council Meeting Minutes

We are pleased to report that Council has decided not to adopt the staff proposal for a Seniors Centre name change nor the Revitalization report in the form submitted for a vote. Staff were told by Council that they first needed to obtain a consensus agreement with the Squamish Seniors Centre Society. Thank you to all who made this possible.
