Recommends Texada Island Airport fencing
Powell River Regional District’s committee of the whole voted at its November 16 meeting to recommend to the regional board that it allocates $200,000 in the 2018 draft budget for wildlife fencing at Texada Island Airport. The committee also recommended the board informs Texada Island Airport Advisory Committee that operational issues involving compliance with regulatory bodies will be conducted by appropriate staff, and that the airport manager will adhere to the airport’s wildlife-management plan to ensure public safety.
Recommends Lund park designation
Committee of whole voted to recommend that the regional board designate the regional district’s newly acquired parkland in Lund, the site of the Lund Gazebo, as End of the Road Regional Park. The 14.9-acre parcel of land was donated to the regional district for parkland and, similar to the new Rossander Regional Park, the committee will ask the board to consider converting it into a community park once those bylaws are created.
Recommends adopting garbage plan
Committee of the whole voted to recommend that the regional board adopt the 2017 Solid Waste Management Plan and direct staff to submit it to Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy once it has been reviewed by City of Powell River and Tla’amin Nation.
