Renwick chosen by Chilliwack to replace McCrea

Council approved David Renwick last week to replace Bob McCrea on the Cultus Lake Park Board

Chilliwack city council has chosen who will replace Cultus Lake Park Board Commissioner Bob McCrea in the wake of his sudden resignation from the board.

Council approved David Renwick last week to replace McCrea on the Park Board, for the time remaining until the next election in November.

“It’s a bit of an unusual situation,” noted Coun. Ken Huttema. “I can’t remember a time council has had to appoint someone to the Park Board.”

McCrea, a former park board chair, told The Progress he was stepping down in order to devote his energy to getting new people elected in the upcoming fall elections.

During his term on the board McCrea worked closely with a group of local residents who were instrumental in getting the Cultus Lake Park Act amended, whereby the majority of the Board will now be elected by the residents of Cultus Lake. The streamlined park board has been reduced from seven members to five, with three commissioners to be elected by Cultus residents and two from Chilliwack.
