Burke Mtn Update

February 1, 2015 at 9:08 am

Earlier this month, TORCA Directors met with representatives from BC Parks and the City of Coquitlam to discuss how the Pinecone Burke Management Plan is proceeding. The Plan is in the 3rd phase of development; this is essentially where the planning team establishes the values, vision and principles that will guide future park management.

BC Parks is hoping to have a Draft Management Plan completed by spring or early summer. The draft will then be subject to public review and comments.

One of the many tools helping to formulate the Draft Plan are the surveys submitted back in November. Parks representatives said they received over 500 responses, many of which were from MTB supporters. Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey. Your voices were heard. Your participation in the next round of public consultation will be vital.

We feel that there have been some positive steps made towards keeping world class riding in our backyards. Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
