Cumberland block party good to go

The Waverley Hotel’s application for a temporary road closure and noise bylaw exemption for a block party was approved Monday by Cumberland council.

The block of Dunsmuir in front of the Waverley Hotel will be closed from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, June 14 for the Waverley Block Party. Unlike last year, the sidewalk in front of the Ilo Ilo Theatre will remain open to pedestrian traffic for the duration of the event.


The Village of Cumberland will request the federal government consult municipalities regarding the proposed Fair Elections Act.

According to a village staff report, municipalities and municipal residents would be directly affected by the act, and the “federal government has a responsibility to listen to municipalities through a consultation process before enacting any policy.”

Council voted unanimously in favour of requesting consultation.


Cumberland’s financial plan and property tax rate bylaws received third reading. Visit to view the proposed bylaws.
