ELF Alert News: Community Forests Engagement Process (July 9 &10)


Dear ELF Supporters,

After years of our attempts to have the Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF) logging operation be more publicly accountable, the District of Sechelt, owner of SCCF, is holding 2 public meetings to discuss possible new directions in how our local forest is managed within its tenure area. The SCCF tenure includes Halfmoon Bay, Tuwanek, Gray Creek, Chapman Creek Watershed, Wilson Creek and Roberts Creek areas.

Click here or see below for information about the public consultation process that appears on DoS’ website.

We encourage you to select one of the two dates, July 9th or 10th, to attend. You need to preregister by calling 604-885-1986 or email haveyoursay@sechelt.ca

Thank you for your continued interest in how our local forests are being managed.

Engagement Opportunities
The District of Sechelt wants to check in with citizens to ensure that the operations of the Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF) continue to reflect the values of the community. The engagement will take place over the summer and early fall of 2018 and will include opportunities for the community to learn and understand the role of the SCCF, explore new or better opportunities to be involved in the activities of the SCCF, and consider options for improvements to revenue sharing and grants.
