RDEK seeks feedback on three Area B park plans
The Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) is currently working on Parks Management Plans for three of its parks in Electoral Area B and is looking for community input as part of the planning process.
“Staff are currently working on management plans for the Tie Lake Regional Park, Rosen Lake Accesses and Dawson’s Path,” said RDEK Electoral Area B Director Stan Doehle. “Though all three sites are unique, one thing they have in common is their importance as community assets. We would like to hear from residents about what makes these spaces special and gather feedback on things they would like to see considered as part of the management plans.”
Parks Management Plans are intended to provide strategic direction and guidance for the RDEK, community associations and stewards of the parks for the next 15-20 years.
To help gather resident feedback, a project page has been set up on and comments are being taken until 4:30 p.m. on December 17. Those without computer access can contact the RDEK directly and ask to speak to a planner.
“Having the input from park users and area residents will help make these plans stronger, so I encourage people to visit the project page and leave their comments and ideas,” added Doehle.
Management plans address topics such as site planning, development, recreation, access management, public safety, maintenance, control of invasive plants, threats from wildfire and more.
