Fintry Provincial Park

The Regional Board has adopted resolution to approach the Provincial Government to initiate discussions regarding a possible land swap within Fintry Provincial Park.  In 1995, in an agreement with the Province, the Regional District contributed $2-million to purchase a 129.5-hectare property above Westside Road which is included as part of the Provincial Park.  The Regional Board has asked staff to begin talking with the Province to see if that property could be exchanged for a lowland field property within the park in order to explore a possible agricultural use that would be in keeping with the history of the former Dun-waters Estate.
Alternate Vice-Chair Appointed

The Regional Board has appointed Director Colin Basran as the Alternate Vice-Chair from July 19th through 28th.  During that time both Chair Robert Hobson and Vice-Chair Gail Given will be unavailable.
