Annual Public Referral
BCTS TOC's 2020 proposed roads and blocks information sharing referral package is available for public review. Effective date of referral is until May 1st, 2020.
The public is invited to review Amendment #2 of the Okanagan-Columbia FSP. BCTS is proposing to amend its FSP to add the “Cherryville Community Forest” as an “FSP Holder” under section 2.6 – FSP Holder. If approved this means that the Cherryville Community Forest’s forest management (harvesting and road building) plans will now, follow the objectives and strategies of the BCTS Okanagan Columbia FSP. This change was requested by and is supported by the Cherryville Community Forest.
To view the proposed amendment please follow this link BCTS TOC FSP 771 Amendment #2.
