The province is ready to get public input on its draft management plan for Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park.
The plan looks at future uses for the park, south of Vernon, and is based on more than 250 public submissions made earlier in the process.
“Development of the management plan strongly considered much of the public and stakeholder input received, as such, the draft management plan reflects a balanced approach to the future management of Kalamalka Lake Park,” says BC Parks.
People can look over the plan and ask questions of BC Parks staff from 4 to 8 today at the Vernon Prestige Hotel in the Ellison Salon
Public comments will be accepted until January 31, 2019.
The draft plan is stage 3 in a four part plan.
The final stage is to develop and approve the Final Management Plan.
“The new Kalamalka Lake Park Management Plan will replace the 2003 Purpose Statement and Zoning Plan (PSZP) for the park area which existed prior to 2001 (978 hectares), and the PSZP which was approved in 2006 for the former Kalamalka Lake Protected Area, which was established in 2001 and provided Class A park status in 2008,” says BC Parks.
