Highway 1 - Salmon Arm West - Virtual Public Hearing

Notice of Virtual Public Hearing
Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 12:00 pm
Zoom audio/video call

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure proposes to exclude a 0.2-hectare parcel of land, located at Highway 1/42nd St. SW in Salmon Arm, from the Agricultural Land Reserve, as it has been severed from the parent parcel and is proposed to be consolidated within Lot 7 Plan 27888 Section 16 Township 20 Range 10 W6M KDYD.

The parcel (Plan EPP70260) has no utility for agriculture, is completely isolated by Highway 1 and the new 42nd Street right-of-way and logically would be consolidated with the industrial property to the north. The proposed Agricultural Land Reserve exclusion and consolidation with the industrial property to the north will not present any significant impacts to nearby agricultural uses, as it is separated by highway/road right-of-way and will be fenced along the property boundaries. The land has been legally surveyed as arterial highway.

The ministry is following the advice and orders of the provincial health officer to keep British Columbians as safe as possible and help to stop the spread of COVID-19. As such, no in-person public hearing will take place. The ministry will hold the Zoom virtual public hearing to answer questions about the exclusion application and receive comments of support or opposition.

Those who wish to attend the virtual public hearing, may do so by registering via email to: SalmonArmwest@gov.bc.ca by 12:00 pm on March 29th, 2021. A Zoom link will be sent to the email provided on the morning of the public hearing.

Alternatively, written submissions in support or opposition will be accepted until 12:00 pm on March 29th, 2021 by email or mail.
