District of Sechelt Collection-- Various, Page 1

The District of Sechelt staff at various times, places, photographs and other relative documents of local historical interest in the Sechelt Community Archives. The District of Sechelt, situated on the narrowest part of the Sunshine Coast, is approximately halfway between Gibson's and Egmont. It is accessible by ferry from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver to Langdale terminal in the south and from Powell River to Earls Cove in the north. Funding is provided by the District for police services, tourism information, library services, recreational and cultural activities. The staff of the District looks after public works, planning, parks, engineering, sewer treatment, financial administration and tax collection. The District office works in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Regional District. The population is approximately 9,000 and is governed by an elected Council, consisting of six members, and a Mayor. The Village of Sechelt incorporated the following eight neighbourhoods in 1986: Selma Park, Davis Bay, Wilson Creek, West Sechelt, East Porpoise Bay, Sandy Hook, West Porpoise Bay and Tuwanek. Each of these neighbourhoods has its own Community Association which meets regularly to foster interest in its community and advise the District staff and Council on relevant community matters.
