BC Parks is seeking public input on how to better manage local parks and recreations area in Squamish.
BC Parks has launched a survey for Shanon Basin, which included Stawamus Chief Provincial Park, Shannon Falls Provincial Park, Shannon Creek Watershed, Sky Pilot, Mt. Habrich, Goat Ridge, and Petgill Lake.
BC Parks wants to develop a management strategy for the popular area. This strategy will enable sustainable recreation use while protecting the environment and cultural values.
Public input is being sought on a range of issues, from the need for new and diverse trails to parking, access, and safety of visitors.
The survey also seeks opinion on the need for toilets, educational signs, better road access and better commercial and tourism opportunities.
This survey is a partnership between the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (Sea to Sky district) and Squamish Nation, in collaboration with BC Parks.
The Fraser Basin Council is assisting the project partners as an impartial facilitator and to conduct outreach and engagement with stakeholders.
The survey is open until October 20 this year.
