Nancy Gothard, Policy Planner, City of Courtenay
Nancy has been a planner with the City of Courtenay for nearly 10 years and is thrilled to be assigned to the on-going comprehensive review process of the City of Courtenay’s climate-friendly Official Community Plan. Data driven, visionary, and to be heavily consulted, the OCP presents an opportunity to harmonize the science and art of community planning towards the goal of a highly livable, thriving, low carbon Courtenay. Nancy is passionate about working directly with residents to co-create places that we can all be proud of. She dedicates spare time to related volunteer initiatives that take her into the kitchens, gardens, community halls, school gymnasiums, election stations, trails, beaches, creeks, parks and streets of the community she loves. Nancy brings a strong sustainability lens to all aspects of her work, aiming to give a voice to Nature in planning decisions while strengthening community resilience in the face of a complex, dynamic and changing world.
