Second meeting set for Nancy Greene recreation

An initial public workshop was held on Oct. 29 to share information and examine the issues relating to the Recreation Site.

The Ministry of Forests Recreation Sites and Trails Branch has given the community one year in which to create a management plan for the proposed Nancy Greene Recreation site.  Final approval of the Recreation Site is contingent on the community and the Ministry coming to agreement on the plan.

An initial public workshop was held on Oct. 29 to share information and examine the issues relating to the Recreation Site.

A second follow-up workshop will be held on Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Rossland Miners’ Hall, 1765 Columbia Avenue in Rossland.

At the Dec. 3 workshop, the results of the Oct. 29 workshop, and the District Recreation Officer’s responses, will be considered.   The participants will then be invited to brainstorm what an outline of an acceptable plan for the Recreation Site might look like, and what would be the most effective process and group to carry the planning work forward.

Immediately after the public workshop, the Friends of the Rossland Range Society will hold its Annual General Meeting in the Miners’ Hall.  The public is welcome to attend.

Background that will be useful to participants at the Dec. 3 workshop, including the Summary of the Oct. 29 workshop with attached comments by Justin Dexter, District Recreation Officer, can be viewed on the website of the Friends of the Rossland Range at
