DISTRICT OF SQUAMISH LIASON

 

SAS works hard to maintain good relations with District of Squamish staff and council members. The main focus of this effort has been the Smoke Bluffs Park, which is located on municipal land and administered jointly by the district and the volunteer Smoke Bluffs Park advisory committee. SAS has also on occasion spoken out on other issues affecting climbers access. For example, ensuring adequate parking and camping provision for climbers.

SAS also works with the District on film industry issues, principally monitoring impacts of film crews working in areas adjacent to cliffs.
