Michelle Mungall is hosting a meeting in Meadow Creek this week.

Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall is hosting a public meeting Thursday on economic development in the Lardeau Valley — including reporting on her recent meeting with the forests minister over Meadow Creek Cedar.

“The Lardeau Valley has been negatively affected by the decline of the forest industry and poor operations at a local mill,” she said in a news release.

“I’ve met with the Minister of Forests about these issues, and I’d like to share that conversation with the community.”

Mungall says it’s important residents are aware of their options and kept informed about possibilities.

“At the root of this is the area’s economic development, where job creation and prosperity are key.”

The meeting is at the Lardeau Valley community hall in Meadow Creek from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Mungall says she looks forward to a “positive conversation” and hearing ideas. A panel of local experts will be on hand to speak and answer questions on moving the local economy through the next stages of development.
