The Neighbourhood Improvement Committee (NIC) is in need of more volunteers to better serve the needs of residents
who reside in the Residential Housing Units(RHUs) at CFB Petawawa.
The NIC is a voluntary committee which works closely with Canadian Forces Housing Agency (CFHA) and the Base with an aim to improve the standard of living for RHU residents on the North and South Townsites.
Along with six community volunteers the committee is chaired by the Base
Administration Officer (B1) and is represented by a number of ex-officio members such as the Base Chief Warrant Officer (BCWO), CFHA, and Base Construction Engineering (BCE). “I am fully aware that many of you already
have extremely busy schedules, but the role of the NIC is not intended to be intense or time consuming,” says CFB Petawawa Base Commander Lieutenant-Colonel Chris Moyle. “The NIC rep gives the ward a voice around the table and a direct connection to the Base through the B1 who in turn can bring these issues to me.” Many times residents have ideas for improvements,
but those ideas never make it to the table. The NIC will seek public opinion
on parking, garbage collection, green space, speed limits, community policing and any other issue that concerns RHU residents. The NIC representative is expected to attend two to four meetings a year and would essentially be the person ward residents go to with their ideas or submissions.
