Nelson wants to share city hall with RDCK

The City of Nelson wants to pitch the Regional District of Central Kootenay this week on sharing space in the white building.

The City of Nelson wants to pitch the Regional District of Central Kootenay this week on sharing space in the white building.

A letter on the agenda for Thursday’s board meeting says the city is asking for an audience “for the purpose of delivering a presentation to the board to consider the opportunity for the RDCK to share space and the potential space options at 310 Ward Street.”

The delegation will consist of mayor and regional director John Dooley, councillor and alternate director Donna Macdonald, city manager Kevin Cormack, and chief financial officer Colin McClure.

Two other delegations are already scheduled for the meeting, so it will require a two-thirds vote to receive the presentation.

The RDCK is running out of room at its lakefront headquarters and has brought in a space planner to look at reconfiguring the office.

The city bought the white building from the provincial government in 2005. Both municipal and provincial services are offered in the building, but there is still unoccupied space.
