CAMPBELL RIVER - Mayor Andy Adams announced that Amber Zirnhelt, the City’s long range planning and sustainability manager, has been selected one of 10 municipal leaders invited to join a national innovation network, sponsored by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).

Joining FCM’s Best in Canada Municipal Innovation Network is both an award and an opportunity to access a network of collaborative local government peers from across Canada.

The FCM announcement stated, “These leaders are solution-focused, committed to change, and always willing to share lessons learned with their peers. Each one has addressed a need from the community; demonstrated leadership; encouraged multi-sector collaboration. They have made a long-term impact in their communities with significant social, environmental and economic benefits.”

Zirnhelt is excited to showcase the City’s recent sea level rise planning, including the innovative work led by senior planner Chris Osborne with support from co-op student Natasha Guillo and environmental specialist Terri Martin.

This award is in addition to the Vancouver Island Top 20 Under 40 award that Zirnhelt received in April of this year.
