Have your say on lake management plans

An open house at the Windermere Community Hall will be held to further discuss the proposed Lake Windermere Management Plan.

Guests at the January 2011 Lake Windermere Management Plan meeting inspect revised zoning maps.

An open house at the Windermere Community Hall will be held to further discuss the proposed Lake Windermere Management Plan.

The open house will take place on August 3, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will be hosted by the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) and the District of Invermere.

The proposed management plan has received some recommendations for revising.

The RDEK and the district are considering the creation of new regulatory measures to zone the surface of the lake and protect the lake foreshore.

Those interested in discussing the management and development of Lake Windermere, as well as new revisions to the proposed plan are invited to attend the open house with elected officials and staff present.

The open house will also provide information and insight as to what the management plan hopes to achieve and why zoning may be necessary.

Public attendees can also help the plan by identifying issues and other opportunities by telling officials on-hand what they would and would not like to see on the lake and along the foreshore area.

Information available at the open house is as follows:

• current foreshore development regulations

• recommendations from the Lake Windermere Management Plan

• surface information

• foreshore and aquatic development permit areas

• how to get involved

For further information, contact Karen MacLeod, planner, at 250-489-0313, toll free at 1-888-478-7335 or email lakewindermere@rdek.bc.ca
