Corlazzoli: ‘Ensure community’s interests are represented’

I was first elected to Council at age 26 and have served half my life on Municipal Council. Over the years I have seen many changes but the one thing that remains the same is my personal commitment and desire to serve our community. My platform 27 years ago was, and still is, to represent residents, families and business owners by making fiscally responsible decisions that shape the development of Ucluelet without losing its unique culture. I have always wanted Ucluelet to be a place where people can afford to live, have a secure job and raise a family with the best education and recreation possible.

Over the past year as the chair of the Planning Committee, I have experienced the difficulty in taking a project from inception to completion. It is a challenging and complex process to keep the community’s interest at the forefront. My focus is on making decisions that will positively shape the future of Ucluelet while allowing for growth and development to occur within the parameters of our existing policies and bylaws. This is why it is so important to maintain policies and bylaws to ensure that the community’s interests are represented. Over the next term, these policies and bylaws, along with the Official Community Plan will need to be reviewed and amended as needed.
