A New Look For Campobello Island

Voters in the Campobello Island local service district voted yesterday to form a rural community.

The unofficial result is 275 (yes) to 167 (no), with a voter turnout of 72 per cent out of 614 eligible voters.

What happens now is once the provincial government has approved the proposal, the Department of Local Government will plan the incorporation date and co-ordinate byelections that will see a mayor, a councillor-at-large and three councillors elected on a ward basis.

It is expected that the rural community will adopt a rural plan and emergency measures plan within two years of incorporation.
