The public is invited to participate in park management planning underway for Balfour Beach, Crescent Valley Beach, Waterloo Eddy and Pass Creek.

“We need to get public input to develop detailed plans for each of the four parks because each has unique design or land use considerations that we want to review with residents before we move ahead,” said Sangita Sudan, development services manager for the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

Juliet Anderton Consulting and Ecoscape Environmental have been hired to prepare management plans for the four parks, including a design development plan for Crescent Valley Beach to address parking and access issues. Consultants will solicit public input at open houses and an online survey throughout the fall.

A review of properties and land status began in September 2014 and consultants will identify all ecological, recreation and cultural values for each of the parks before developing new park vision statements.

For Crescent Valley Beach, draft design development and costing for parking and other amenities will be presented at the open house. Draft park management plans are scheduled for public review in the New Year with final management plans slated for board approval by summer 2015.
