Cultus Lake Park Boad: David Renwick

Cultus Lake Park Board: Renwick, David – Park board director: Renwick aims for era of co-operation and collaboration

David Renwick

David Renwick, QC, Partner at Baker Newby LLP, will be running in the upcoming election. He was recently appointed a Cultus Lake Parks Board Commissioner to replace one who had resigned and is now seeking public support. With his experience in managing a successful law firm, serving as a Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia, the governing body for lawyers, and sitting as an alternate Chair on the BC Review Board, he is well qualified to provide expertise, experience and leadership to the new Board.

The key issue in this upcoming election is whether or not now is the time for a change.

For the past few years personality conflicts have significantly hampered the operation of the Board. Mr. Renwick would like to create an atmosphere of cooperation and collaboration rather than one of conflict. It really is time for a complete change.

In addition, we need to have more transparency and openness; less in camera meetings. We need to communicate better with the public. If elected, his focus will be on Building our Community and Preserving our Park. This requires a cohesive approach in developing a strategy to effectively and progressively manage the growth in the Park without compromising the integrity of that environment. It is a delicate balancing act in building a wonderful place for those who live there, such as himself and his wife Kathy, and preserving the Park for all of Chilliwack to enjoy. Other issues include financial stability; ensuring that the Park’s operations are fiscally sound.

Commercial enterprises need to be sustainable so they continue to provide a solid tax base. The building bylaws need to be completely overhauled so there is consistency in their application. Finally, we need to focus on milfoil and waterfowl reduction to enhance the beach, the foreshore and the lake. These challenges require strong direction, which Mr. Renwick can provide.
