Let's clear areas like this so houses can be built to provide jobs for the present work force. When the time comes, we'll worry about what the purchasers of the homes will be employed at, but we'll think of something to keep a rapid pace of growth and industry.

After all, we all love this island and can't wait to fill every nook and cranny with bigger EVERYTHING! Right? To Hell With Super Natural British Columbia - There's Money To Be Made Here - If You Can Get By Those Stupid Locals!
Riparian Areas Setback - 30m - What protection is that?
For those who walk along the creek, there are numerous areas where the path is further than 30m from the creek. 30m on each side. Most of the existing path would be completely cleared if KIP chooses, according to the pic below. 30m of vegetation will quickly die in a hot summer. The buffer to Washer Creek needs to be expanded.

This development is not going ahead yet. The agreement KIP has with the RD is that UBID turn over our water license - not going to happen.
