Highlights from Quesnel city council

Forest Practices Board chair visits, Adopt a Park Policy approved

Forest Practices Board (FPB) chair Tim Ryan highlighted what the board does for councillors at the Nov. 7 council meeting.

The FPB mandate is to promote overall stewardship of the forests in the province and serve the public’s interests by promoting improved performance from licensees, managers, practitioners and users of the forests, rangelands and resources.

The FPB has prepared reports that can be found on the its website – www.bcfpb.ca – on topics that will interest local governments, such as, Managing Forest Fuels in Wildland Urban Interface Areas, Forest Stewardship Plans and Community Watershed.

Adopt a Park Policy

Council approved the Adopt-a-Park Policy in answer to an expressed interest in the community to adopt the South Hills Park by the Quesnel Boy Scouts.

This type of policy is popular in other communities where local clubs, groups, organizations, private citizen groups and businesses focus on overall park stewardship. For a full viewing of this policy, please visit the City’s website at quesnel.ca.
