Draft Report Of Recreation Feasibility For West Stave Lake Area Expected By March
Jan 8, 2009
The District of Mission's recreation feasibility plan for the West Stave Lake area is expected to be based on multi-use activities. To develop the plan, the district's Forestry Manager will be meeting with various representative organizations, including the Four Drive Association of B.C. (4WDABC.CA). Of particular interest to fourwheelers is that they are prepared to discuss the potential for a rock crawling site.
Some fourwheelers will be upset by the District of Mission's position that the Stave Lake mud flats is an area unapproved for fourwheeling activity. They cite degradation of First nations sites and environmental damage to wetlands and riparian areas. It doesn't take much clairvoyance to predict that fourwheeling on the 'flats will soon be a thing of the past.
The Forestry Manager also stressed that they are not proposing a recreational park. The area is still a working forest and so could not be turned into a park under this plan.
