Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Is currently working on Parks Management Plans for three parks in Electoral Area B. Community input is an important piece of this process, and we are currently seeking public feedback as part of the planning process.

There are separate surveys for Tie Lake Regional Park and the Rosen Lake Accesses, and information collected through these surveys will help inform the development of the Management Plans for these two parks. Dawson's Path already has a DRAFT plan and we are urging residents to review the draft and provide comments on it, which will be compiled and considered as the Plan is finalized. Please take a few moments to provide your feedback through the Feedback and Ideas Tabs below.

The RDEK would like to hear your comments by December 17th, 2021 at 4:30pm.

WHAT IS A PARKS MANAGEMENT PLAN AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

Park Management Plans to establish objectives and strategies for the long-term management of RDEK trails. They are intended to provide strategic direction and guidance for the RDEK, community associations and stewards of the park for a 15 to 20 year period.

Management plans address topics such as land acquisition, site planning, facility development, recreation, user groups, access management, public safety, maintenance, control of invasive plants, threats from wildfire and funding and partnership agreements.
