Comox takes steps to preserve green space

The Town of Comox has taken the next steps in preserving green space in northeast Comox.

The Town of Comox has taken the next steps in preserving green space in northeast Comox.

Residents in the Comox Valley may have noticed the advertisements in the local newspapers that indicate the Town’s intent to acquire Crown land for park purposes.

Residents interested in making comments on the application or for more information may go to the province’s website at http://arfd.gov.bc.ca/ApplicationPosting/index.jsp.

“This is part of the joint application process with K’ómox First Nation (KFN) that the Town has agreed to under the Memorandum of Understanding,” stated Mayor Paul Ives.

In addition to the advertisements in the local newspapers, the property in question has been posted with signs to advise residents of the Town’s and KFN’s intent to acquire the property from the Province.

“Although the Town is taking the lead on making the application on this significant piece of green space, we could not succeed in this process without our excellent partnership with KFN and the strong support from our MLA, Don McRae,” added Ives.

With the exception of any applications being managed in an environmental assessment review, it is the intent of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to make a decision on the application within 140 days of accepting the application in December 2012.
