The Mission of the Development Association
Provide a structure and forum to facilitate community development that includes all those activities, both acceptable and sustainable, that promote the rich rural and seacoast hinterland environment and social well-being of the Community of Centreville District.
The Association’s membership is open to all members of the District and to all stake holders of the District. All that is required for membership is the completion of a registration form. The Association’s current executive and board of directors is drawn from members of organizations in the District and District community and business members.
The District’s Boundaries, Vision, and Motto and the Association’s Mission and Membership have been approved by the Board of Directors.
Does your Community need such an Association?
Considering that for the past 23 years the Municipal Planning Strategy has designated Centreville a Growth Centre into which urban growth is being directed; that in the arena of development there has never been a broad-based strong, single voice to represent the Community/District; that development has been the domain of entrepreneurs, the Municipal Government and the Provincial Government; that governments and their agencies seldom respond well to individuals; one would conclude that the District has needed for two decades a broad-based strong, single voice to represent its concerns. The Centreville District Community Development Association was handed this role at the public meeting on November 28,1998. The role of the Association, however, does not in any way limit the right of individuals to address their concerns to the various levels of government.
