What are Bowen Islanders dreams for the place they call home? The final pins on this election year’s dream board.

I have a long list of dreams for Bowen and they are all equally important to me. I would love for the spring and summer programs offered by the rec centre to be ‘licensed childcare’ so that families eligible for government childcare subsidy can use the subsidy that they are entitled to. I would love for the main strip to have large planters with beautiful trees and plants. I’m tempted to take this on myself! And, it would be great if outdoor public water fountains to be installed at the school and by the ferry.

I would love to have a re-use-it store on Bowen: a place to drop off unwanted building materials and a place to find odds and ends including wood or paint or any other by-product of construction or renovation (whether it be residential or commercial). Re-using reduces disposal costs, saves people money, and is great for the environment.
