Road Committees

Road committees are the primary way local requests related to road construction, repair and gravelling are managed in the Special Areas. Road committees meet each spring to discuss requests from the public, set local road priorities, and make annual road program recommendations. There are thirteen local road committees in the Special Areas, one for each Special Area subdivision.

Ratepayers with road project requests and concerns are encouraged to contact the road committee member for their area. Local road committee members are the best way for the public to share their requests, concerns, and ideas for future road projects.

At annual meetings each spring, road committees review the proposed annual road program for the upcoming season. The annual road program includes road construction, surfacing and backtrail repairs projects for all the Special Areas. Each road committee sets local road project priorities and recommends required changes to the proposed road program.

Road committee members are responsible for collecting and communicating ratepayer concerns. They are Elected at the Annual Taxpayer Meetings .

Annual Road Program Development

The annual road program, including both construction and surfacing projects, is developed each year as a part of the Board’s annual budgeting cycle. Projects are determined using input from local road committees, long-term road program planning, and capital budgeting constraints.
In general, the process to develop the annual road program is:
- October to November -
Special Areas Administration develops a draft annual road program based on local road committee priorities, long-term project planning, and budgetary constraints.

- December -
The Advisory Council reviews the draft annual road program at the Fall Advisory Council meeting. After integrating any changes required, the draft annual road program is recommended for review by local road committees. It is now referred to as the proposed annual road program.

- January to March -
Local road committees hold their annual meetings for all 13 Special Areas subdivisions. At these annual meetings, local road committees:
• Set priorities for local road projects
• Review the proposed annual road program and recommend any changes needed
• Recommend any new road committee members

- April -
The Advisory Council reviews the proposed annual road program - including any changes made during road committee meetings - at the Spring Advisory Council meeting. The annual road program is approved by the Advisory Council for the upcoming season.

- May to October -
The annual road program is executed by Municipal Services during the road construction season. Road maintenance projects are managed by the Maintenance Supervisor, road surfacing projects are managed by the Surfacing Supervisor, and road construction projects are managed by the Construction Foremen. All road projects are supervised by the Superintendent of Roads & Streets, reporting to the Director of Municipal Services.

- October -
Annual reporting on the annual road program is provided to the Special Areas Board and Advisory Council, including project costs, completion rates, and overall performance.
