Cherry Creek Falls information session in Kimberley Thursday

The RDEK will update residents on where the proposed Cherry Creek Park stands.

A proposal for an Area E Regional Park in the Cherry Creek Falls area will be the subject of a public information meeting next week and Meadowbrook residents are being encouraged to attend.

The RDEK is hosting the meeting and Electoral Area E Director Jane Walter says the goal is to provide the community with information on the steps that would be required to move forward with the creation of a park.

“We recognize the importance of the area and the concerns of the community with regard to the potential impacts of any mining activity should that occur. I’ve been working with RDEK Staff, the Ministry and the community to determine options moving forward. This meeting will outline those next steps,” explains Walter. “This is not an RDEK initiative; it is a community driven project. There will be a community commitment required to make this project proceed and the first step will be to raise the funds to purchase the mineral claim.” The Cherry Creek Falls area is currently within a permitted mineral claim tenure which allows for a rock quarry.

The meeting will provide an overview of the roles and responsibilities required of the various parties to create an Area E Regional Park.

The meeting will be held Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 7:00pm at the Marriott at the Kimberley Alpine Resort.

For more information, contact RDEK Planner Michele Bates at 1-888-478-7335 or 250-489-2791.
