SCCA News

Please attend the SCRD Infrastructure Services Committee meeting:
9:30 am, Thursday, April 20th at the SCRD Offices - 1975 Field Road, Wilson Creek.

BC Parks has told the SCRD that the Chapman Lake trenching project is not approvable under the Parks Act.  For the project to go forward, land must be removed from the Tetrahedron Provincial Park or the park status must be downgraded to a lesser level of protection.

We need to show the SCRD that we disagree with taking land out of our park or degrading its Class A status.

We support efforts that lead to sustainable outcomes.  We don't support compromising the Tetrahedron and are concerned that this project will not just be a "temporary" solution.  Please help us protect our park and create a truly sustainable future.

We hope to see you at the meeting!
