Free building and development forum June 1 on City’s Environmental Protection Bylaw

Have you ever seen a stream of brown muddy water leaving a construction site and running into the storm drain or watched as someone dumps their paint or concrete wash water onto the street? Perhaps you’ve watched wheelbarrows of yard waste being deposited in natural areas that line streamside habitat.

“These activities are regulated under the City of Campbell River’s Environmental Protection Bylaw,” says Terri Martin, environmental specialist.

Learn more about the bylaw during the City’s free lunch ‘n’ learn session at noon June 1 for local developers and qualified environmental professionals (QEPs) in the Enterprise Centre boardroom at 900 Alder Street, beside City Hall.

“The bylaw also helps to ensure that the environmental development permit process in the Official Community Plan is supported and that all development permit conditions are implemented,” says Chris Osborne, the City’s senior planner.

“Currently, the bylaw focuses on watercourses and bald eagle nest tree habitat,” he adds.
