Squamish Official Community Plan – Climbers Input Needed

There are two open houses in Squamish this week to solicit input from the community on the 1st draft of the Official Community Plan.

The Official Community Plan will become a bylaw which guides policy direction for Squamish on future development and decisions regarding growth, planning, land use, and provision of services.  Climbing, as an integral and defining element of the Squamish community, needs to be adequately reflected in this important document.

We urge local climbers to attend and express support for enhanced consideration of climbing within the Plan.

The draft can be viewed here:

Pages 52 to 57 of Part 4 deal specifically with Parks and Recreation.

The meetings are on Wednesday October the 14th and Thursday October the 15th, and run from 5pm to 9pm at the Sea-to-Sky Hotel ballroom, 40330 Tantalus Way, Garibaldi Estates.
