Feasibility study underway for

new rental housing in Kaslo

On October 13, Kaslo Mayor and Council gave the green

light to the Kaslo Housing Society to begin studying the feasibility

of creating new dedicated rental apartments in downtown

Kaslo. The proposed building, which could potentially provide

8-10 studio and larger apartments, would be located behind the

Kemball Centre on A Avenue.

The 75 x 100-foot lot behind the Kemball Centre is presently

under-utilized as a secure bus parking and storage area for

Kaslo Infonet. Working with their development partner, New

Commons Development under its Small Communities Initiative,

the housing society would begin a period of public consultation,

and assess the geotechnical and other site constraints.

An architect, Christine Ross from Sanca, has been hired to

provide high level concept drawings that can be adapted in

response to community input.

New Commons Development

Small Communities Initiative is

already working with several small

communities in the region to assist

local housing providers in solving

the challenges of developing

community housing. They bring a

much-needed level of expertise and

experience to the work ahead for

Kaslo: securing project financing,

beginning with a strong proposal to

BC Housing’s Community Housing

Fund, deadline January 15, 2021.

The Kaslo Housing Society, the

Village and New Commons developed

a solid working relationship

earlier this year while evaluating

the feasibility of acquiring the Kaslo

Bay property, which unfortunately is

not going forward. But there was a

positive takeaway from that effort.

We were able to pivot when the Village-owned

land behind the Kemball

Centre was suggested as a possible

site for long-term rental housing.

The site has many advantages that

the site near the Public Works yard

(the “Lovers Site”), which is currently

leased by the housing society, does

not. In 2018, a proposal in response

to a call by BC Housing, very similar

to the January 2021 Request for Proposals,

had been submitted by the

Housing Society. It was explained to

the society that the reason that proposal

failed was because the Lovers

site had no services no access, no

water line, no electrical/phone service,

and of course, no sewer.

The A Avenue site has all of these

services.

Please see the ad in this paper for

opportunities to learn more about

the project. More opportunities to

learn and comment will be offered as

the feasibility study unfolds.

that will support the long-term stability of jobs and economic

recovery in the sector.

In 2019, government made changes to the Labour Relations

Code that were supported by recommendations put

forward by an independent and expert review. This review

was completed in 2018 by a balanced committee of special

advisers, including an employer and a labour representative

and included recommendations based on a thorough public

consultation.

The review identified one important area regarding successorship

protections for the forestry sector that needed further

consultation before any further recommendations could be

made. For this reason, government intends to establish an

industrial inquiry commission (IIC) under the code to review

contract tendering in the forestry sector, outside the scope of

any Indigenous or First Nations interests.

“Protecting workers’ job security and benefits will help with

the economic recovery of the BC forestry sector,” said Doug

Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource

Operations and Rural Development. “That’s why we’ll appoint

an IIC to reach out to industry experts, unions and employers

to better understand successorship and contract tendering in

the sector.”

The outcome of an industrial inquiry commission will help

guide future potential changes to the Labour Relations Code

or the code’s regulations.

Improving fairness for workers and ensuring balance in

workplaces are shared priorities between government, the

BC Green Party caucus and Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak

Bay-Gordon Head, and is part of the Confidence and Supply

Agreement.

NELSON

This is sweet Muffin. She has been a purring machine since

being with us. She needs like 5 minutes of warm up time and

then she will be purring up a storm. Being as she is a kitten still

she is quite playful once she’s comfortable. She and her brother

Angus tend to play around a lot together. She came from a

multi cat house and would do well with a companion.

West Kootenay Community Animal Centre

124 Heritage Way, Castlegar • https://adopt.spca.bc.ca

On February, 22 nd 2020, 86 local people of all ages

walked 5 or 10 km, in the cold, down Columbia Avenue. They walked

in solidarity with thousands of people across Canada in Castlegar’s 3rd

Coldest Night of the Year, a National walkathon for homelessness.

The Castlegar Youth Action Network and Homelessness Partnering

Strategy Programs want to thank you!

We also want to thank the many

people and businesses that

have shown support, year after

year, for local people experiencing

homelessness and other

vulnerabilities, and for our youth,

a vulnerable population in itself

and one whose members help

plan and contribute to this event

every year.

A big thank you to all of those

who aren’t named in this release.

Again, to the 86 walkers, the 12

teams, the 160 donors and the

66 volunteers who made this

event happen. We could not do

this without you!

The businesses that have

shown support for this cause as

sponsors, we appreciate you and

your commitment to building a

community that picks people up

and helps them when they are

down. Mercer Celgar our lead

sponsor from day one, Martech

Electrical, Teck Trail Operations,

Kootenay Savings and Heritage

Credit Unions, thank you for

showing your support year after

Castlegar: A Community that CARES!

Castlegar:

year! Wood Wyant, thank you

for joining as a sponsor for the

2020 year.

We want to reach out and thank

all the businesses that provided

free or in-kind services to support

this event and those who make

teams for walking alongside

other community members.

• Our media sponsors: the

Pennywise, The Goat Radio,

EZ Rock, The Castlegar Source

and the Castlegar Daily News.

As a non-profit we need your

help promoting our event!

• Our venue sponsors, the United

Church and Speedy Auto

Glass, for hosting our registration,

opening ceremonies and

outside rest stop.

• Our local grocery stores and

restaurants for supplying us

with donations to feed our

volunteers and walkers on

walk day: No Frills, Safeway,

Kootenay Market, Mc Donald’s

and Tim Hortons, and this

year, the Bhudda Bistro who

handed out soup to the walkers

along the way! The warm

cup of coffee or hot chocolate,

soup or a muffin goes a long

way on a cold day in the winter.

Much appreciated!

Finally, to the dozens of small

businesses that provided in-kind

donations and gift certificates for

our participants. Thank you!

As the Coordinator for the

Castlegar Youth Action Network

and the Director for Castlegar‘s

Coldest Night of the Year I also

want to acknowledge and thank

all the people involved in developing

service provider partnerships

that helped execute and

build momentum for this event

while giving youth and students a

chance to be a part of a catalyst

for local change.

Thank you to the Castlegar Youth

Rotary Interact group for once

again organizing and hosting the

rest stop.

Thank you to the Selkirk College

School of Nursing, Social Work

and Child and Youth Care for

continuing to provide practicum

students, for recruiting teams

and developing unique learning

opportunities, and for creating

a trans-disciplinary practicum

around this event. We love having

the students get involved.

In 2020, a new partnership and

a new event was formed. Stanley

Humphries School thank you

so much for hosting the first annual

Coldest Day of the Year,

an event entirely run by youth,

fundraising for the same goals.

We appreciate that you took

notice of the need for support in

our community and that you saw

fit to trust CDCSS to do a most

amazing job delivering the funds

to those in need. Thank you to all

the Stanley Humphries staff and

students who embarked on the

journey to run this event!

Together, these people

and the two events raised

$11,415.00 for the Castlegar

and District Community

Services, Homelessness

Partnering Strategy and Castlegar

Youth Action Network

Programs.

In 2021, we will host this event

again. Now more than ever, people

affected by these vulnerabilities

need our help! Thank you to

everyone involved and to all the

people who will sign up and be a

part again, for years to come!

2021 Coldest Night is coming. It

will be different this year and we

will need everyone’s support now

more than ever. For this event everyone

can help to do something

to help someone in need. It feels

great to do it!

Visit CNOY.org after Nov. 1st

2020 to sign up and walk, fundraise

or volunteer.

Feel free to contact Program

Director Zoe Mackay with any

questions or concerns.

Nelson’s Cold War Bunker

opens to the publc

The stark furnishings of Nelson’s Cold War Bunker are displayed.

During the height of the Cold War, in the 1950s and 1960s,

nearly 50 bunkers were constructed across Canada. Their purpose

was to shelter up to 8,000 officials in the event of a nuclear

war, and they were commonly found in secure locations in a well

constructed federal building, such as the Nelson Post Office.

Few people knew about the existence of Nelson’s own

bunker, until 2013 when Touchstones Nelson Museum

began offering private tours. Since then the Museum

board and staff have been working to preserve

and prepare the space for public viewing.

After many years of planning, the Cold

War Bunker is opening to the public as

a permanent museum exhibition and

heritage site.

“The Touchstones Nelson team

is thrilled that after renovations,

the development of an exhibition

and educational programming

development, new

collections storage, an updated

HVAC system to meet museum-standards,

updated washrooms,

new lighting, and more,

the Bunker will open in October!

This project has been a tremendous

team effort spanning

many years. We have so many

people to thank—past staff and

Board members; current volunteers,

Board and Staff; the Grey

Building owners; the City of Nelson;

our many funders, and more.

We look forward to welcoming

you to the space.” says Astrid Heyerdahl,

executive director of Touchstones

Nelson Museum.

“It has been fascinating uncovering

the story of this largely unknown part of

Nelson’s history,” says Jean-Philippe Stienne,

archivist and collections manager at

Touchstones Nelson Museum.

“I am delighted that we are able to finally share

the secrets of the bunker with the community, and

welcome visitors into this Cold War era time capsule of

the 1960s.”

The exhibition explains the role of the bunker in the context of

the extraordinary world wide tensions at that time. Among the

items preserved from the original bunker,

visitors can view a ‘Mobile Feeding

Unit’, a self-contained ration kit that

converted to a table; a Geiger counter,

and many cold-war related items from

the Touchstones Nelson collection,

and on loan from other museums.

The bunker kitchen and Civil Defence

Coordinators Office have been recreated,

and include many items that were

originally found in the bunker.

“The current board of directors, as

well as all past board members, have

been fully supportive of this incredible

heritage project,” says Sheila Achilles,

Chair of the Board. “We are greatly

looking forward to opening the space

to the public to offer more educational

and history interaction. We are proud

of the staff and volunteer team who has

made this project happen”

The Bunker opens to the public

on Saturday, October 17 at 2 pm,

with a members-only showing

from 11:30-2. Due to distancing

restrictions, tours of 10 are

booked for 30 minute time

slots, which must be registered

in advance by visiting

Eventbrite or calling

250-352-9813.

Meet Tanya Finley,

Liberal candidate

It’s a message Tanya

Finley has been hearing a

lot in the past few weeks:

‘I’ll vote for you personally,

but I don’t like the BC

Liberals’.

Finley says she’s ok with

that.

“People in Nelson were

upset with the government

back in 2001, but

I’m running in 2020 and

looking to the future,” she

said. “You can’t move forward

if you’re constantly

stuck in the past. This is a

different party with a different

leader and different candidates. I’m not interested in

yelling about what happened in the 80s, 90s, or 2000s. I’m

focussed on the future.”

With her background as a well-respected entrepreneur, and

her time as President of the Chamber of Commerce along

with countless Boards, non-profits, and organizations, Finley

has broad personal appeal in Nelson.

“I’m not a career politician; I’m running

because people have said ‘we

need you’ because they know that I’m

tenacious, resilient, and adaptable, and

those are the qualities we need in an

effective local MLA,” she explained.

Finley’s supporters agree.

“I’ve never understood this mentality

that “I’ll vote NDP or Liberal or

whatever, no matter who is on the ballot,”

said Nelson’s Maureen Hendry. “I

vote for the person who I think is best

suited to represent me in Victoria, and

in this election, there’s no question that

it’s Tanya Finley.”

That sentiment has been echoed to

Finley throughout the campaign.

“Maybe this election will be the one

that really shows that old, outdated

party-first-above-all-else thinking

doesn’t work in a new reality, shaped

by COVID and economic challenges,”

she said. “We need people of all political

persuasions working together, and

naked partisanship just doesn’t cut it

anymore.”

“If you’re running and your only message

is ‘the other guys were bad decades

ago’, that’s rearview mirror thinking,

and we really need MLAs working for

the future.”

Michelle Ingrid Hansen 1969 ~ 2020

New magazine for you!

It is with the utmost sorrow that we

mourn the loss of Michelle Ingrid

Hansen, who passed suddenly at the

age of 50 on September 26, 2020.

Michelle will be lovingly remembered

by Hans Hansen, her husband

of 28 years; her two daughters

Daniella and Mikenna Hansen; her

brother Neil Hartung; and parents

Percy and Ingrid Hartung, who will

always cherish the memory of their

beautiful daughter.

Michelle Hansen was born on October

18, 1969 in Nelson,

BC at Kootenay Lake

Hospital. She certainly

made an entrance

when she came into

the world—shocking

her parents with the

surprise addition of her

twin brother Woody.

Always tenacious,

Michelle made sure she

was the first twin to

greet her loving parents.

Flanked by her brothers, Neil and

Woody, in the cozy town of Kaslo,

BC, Michelle was always ready and

able to circumvent any problems that

arose. One of Michelle’s particularly

memorable conquests still brings a

smile to her parents’ face.

One morning when the children

were young, her mother had baked

a particularly large batch of cookies.

However, once they were out of

the oven, Ingrid had to leave them

unattended to see to a few chores

outside. She left specific instructions

to her three children that no cookies

were to be eaten in her absence and

that she had counted every cookie to

be sure. But that wasn’t going to stop

Michelle. Upon returning from her

chores, Ingrid found that Michelle

and her brothers had followed their

mother’s instructions in a somewhat

creative fashion. Not a single cookie

was missing, but the three children

had satisfied their hunger by taking a

bite out of each and every one.

Never one to stand idly by when another

person was in need of a helping

hand, Michelle was constantly

looking out for others. From a young

age, she possessed a truly amazing

sense of compassion. As a girl, Michelle

would bring home peers from

school who were being bullied or

some who were simply

in need of a friend.

Everyone around her could find a

friend in Michelle. Her mother and

father warmly remember these times

of truly inspiring grace and kinship

beaming from their daughter.

Never further than a heartbeat away, we will forever hold you

dearest in our hearts. We love you.

You have your own set of wings now, Michelle.

As so many people know, Michelle

carried her loving nature throughout

the entirety of her life. She loved her

daughters with every fibre of her being,

providing them with astounding

care and attentiveness.

Michelle also bestowed her gift of

caring to the many senior citizens

she looked after in Kaslo—they too

were a big part of Michelle’s life and

always at the forefront of her mind.

Not a day went by that Michelle

didn’t have a big smile on her face or

a story to share about someone she

loved and cared for in Kaslo. And,

indeed, not a day has passed, nor will

come to be, that those people whom

Michelle loved so much, would falter

if asked to share an equally warm

and loving story about her.

It is extremely difficult to summarize

in only a few words the story of a

person who lived with such vivacity.

With such elegance. With such grace

and brilliance. A woman with so

much personality and originality. A

woman who touched the hearts of

absolutely everyone who was fortunate

enough to have

known her. Michelle’s

smile illuminated every

room she entered;

she was and is a beautiful

soul.

Her presence will

never be forgotten. The

memories of Michelle

that we all share and

those private memories

we only shared

with her…in those

lovely memories, Michelle lives on

eternally. The family hopes it won’t

be too long, perhaps the spring,

when all who knew and loved her

can gather together safely in celebration

of Michelle’s life.

captures stories about the

people and land that make

small towns and rural living

such a treasure.

Living Here features the

work of three local writers,

Sarah Beauchamp, Anna

Lamb-Yorski and Sarah

Lord. Each writer has one

feature story in the launch

of the new magazine. The

stories take an in-depth look

at people in the Kootenays

and surrounding area making

changes to their lives

that help keep them eating

healthy, staying active and

connecting to their roots.

“These are stories about

the people and values that

we all care about. Like people

around the campfire or

a family at a holiday meal,

we share stories that let us

learn about each other’s lives

and help us help each other

to enjoy and take care of our

home,” Sarah Beauchamp

says.

They include the story of

two people who have had

similar experiences finding

a new appreciation for their

heritage by working the

land, a look at the past, present

and future of the Rock

Creek Fall Fair and its impact

on the community, and an

insight into the gardening

resurgence resulting from

the pandemic.

“I think each story will ask,

how can we live better lives?

Our health and safety, our

quality of life, and our local

communities are shared priorities,”

Sarah Lord says.

“Despite our differences,

we all care about our community

and show it in different

ways. Living Here hopes

to highlight this,” says Anna

Lamb-Yorski.

Living Here shows small

towns telling big stories.

Thank You

MY FOREVER THANKS from fickle

Siri, who’s never completed a single

call either before or after this, except

this once, to MX to ED. Who pulled

off an uncertain but crazy rescue;

followed by SL in TD’s borrowed

car getting me Up the Hill; to D.G.

who opened early for business on a

Saturday! & Dr. S. explaining there

wasn’t any skin left to stitch my

wounds together but gave me his

time & a Really, Really efficacious

pain shot; to my sweet sis PA who

made the trip to Nelson less scary.

In Nelson, I much appreciated the

kind manner of mom-to-be nurse

M, and the x- ray lady giving me tips

on how she gets blood out of white

stuff; & Dr. M. who smiled when, at

the end of one long adventure, told

me I was in luck, that tetanus shots

were free all day! And he was right,

I am lucky, to be surrounded by

giving people (and great wildlife),

making celebrating my 74th year

next month, all the more probable.

But, in answer to the one question

I get from all this, the answer is No,

I will not be ‘severing’ contact with

my beloved, my cherished M.B.

Yours truly, alive and laughing in the

Kootenays, MAF.

Recognizing Nelson’s

cultural custodians

The City of Nelson is now accepting applications

and nominations for its annual Heritage

Award, which honours individuals, businesses

or organizations who have made an outstanding

contribution towards the preservation

and/or promotion of Nelson’s heritage. The

winner will receive an $1000 honorarium to be

announced in December. Previous recipients

include builder and restoration specialist Joern

Wingender, author Peter Bartl, historian Greg

Scott, retailer Cartolina, and the Nelson & District

Chamber of Commerce.

“We’re fortunate to be surrounded by such

phenomenal heritage resources in Nelson,”

says Astrid Heyerdahl, chair of the Heritage

the stunning Victorian and Art Deco buildings

and valuable industrial sites throughout

our city. Heritage also refers to Indigenous

sites, cultural traditions, storytelling, plants

and trees, creeks and fish, craft-making, and

knowledge passed from generation to generation

these are all vital examples of our heritage

that make up the diversity and beauty of

our area. We’re thankful for those before us

who’ve insisted on saving valuable sites and

stories, the people who carry on this important

work, and to the City of Nelson for recognizing

the individuals and organizations who

make it their life’s work to bring our diverse

heritage and history to life.”

The City’s Heritage Working Group established

this award to recognize and publicly

appreciate

individuals,

groups, businesses,

or other organizations

who have demonstrated leadership

in heritage restoration,

renewal, or promotion, and to

acknowledge the contribution

heritage makes to the City of

Nelson’s vitality, well-being,

and identity.

The BC Greens announce

candidacy of Nelson resident

Nicole

Charlwood

“I am honoured to have

been chosen,” says Nicole.

“Nelson-Creston is a special

riding in the province. I have

been asked by many people

across the Kootenays to run

for MLA. Voters here have a

chance to send a strong voice

for real change to the Legislature

in Victoria. We don’t

have to worry about strategic

voting. It’s a clear contest

between the NDP and

BC Greens. Voters here can

freely choose the strongest

voice that represents them

for the policies they want.”

BC Greens are strong supporters

of local economies

and innovative small businesses.

We love our natural

mountain home and we recognize

the climate change

dangers we face from forest

fires and smoke pollution.

Together we are working

hard to move towards sustainable

living that deals

with the climate crisis,

reduces our impact

and lets us live more in

balance with the world

we love.

“Many of us are

dissatisfied with the

NDP’s business-asusual

approach that

seems to take up where

the Liberals left off.

LNG, the Site C dam,

the TransMountain

Pipeline, under-managed

forestry - BC can

do better.”

“With unique Kootenay

Lake communities

like Ymir, Argenta, Kaslo

and Riondel we share a

rural paradise. We know it

and we appreciate it,” Nicole

says. “We are ready to come

together to protect it and to

build local livelihoods so

everyone here has a home,

and a safe and supportive

place to raise our families.”

Nicole and her husband

are parents to two teenagers

and live on a small acreage

west of Nelson. Born and

raised in Ontario, she served

at the age of 13 as a Page in

the Ontario Legislature. She

has lived and raised her family

here since 2000 and has

been deeply involved in the

community.

Nicole currently serves on

a RDCK Watershed Advisory

Committee, is the Treasurer

for Nelson Waldorf

Community School Association,

has been a Review

Hallowe’en in a pandemic?

In the West Kootenay we LOVE Hallowee’en even though

it’s almost always cold and drizzly. But in these times, how best

can we have fun safely, and make sure our kids stay safe? The

following are guidelines published by the BC Centre for Disease

Control.

Dr Bonnie sez…

• Skip Halloween parties this year

• Trick or treating in small groups can be a safe and a fun

activity

• Get creative in making space when handing out treats

No matter how you celebrate Halloween this year…

• Turn off your porch light and stay at home if you are

sick or self-isolating.

• Try including a non-medical mask or face covering as

part of your costume.

• Costume masks should not be worn over non-medical

masks or face coverings as that may make it difficult to

breathe.

• Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often.

Leave the parties behind. Indoor gatherings, big or small,

put people at higher risk of getting COVID-19. Instead, celebrate

with your favourite Halloween movie or other traditions

that you can do with your household or social group. If you host

or attend a small party, keep it within your social group (stick

to six). You should know everyone who attends, no plus ones.

Follow our guidelines for safer celebrations.

• Don’t pass around snacks, drinks, smokes, tokes, and

vapes

• Be more outside, than inside. Keep your space well-ventilated

with windows open.

• Avoid using props that can cause coughing, such as

smoke machines.

• Be careful with hand sanitizer and open flames - hand

sanitizer is very flammable!

Trick-or-treating can be done safely by following these

tips:

• Respect homes by staying away if the lights are out.

• Keep to your local neighbourhood this year.

• Avoid trick-or-treating in busy areas or indoors (in

places like malls) since there may not be enough space

to distance. Indoor spaces may require a non-medical

mask or face covering.

• Trick-or-treat in a small social group, stick to six people.

• Leave space between you and other groups to reduce

crowding on stairs and sidewalks.

• Wash your hands before you go out, when you get

home, and before eating treats.

• Keep hand sanitizer with you if eating treats on the go.

• You don’t need to clean every treat. You should instead

wash your hands after handling treats and not touch

your face.

Get creative handing out treats

Use tongs, a baking sheet or make a candy slide to give more

space when handing out candy.

Plan to hand out individual treats instead of offering a

shared bowl.

Only hand out sealed, pre-packaged treats.

Be more outside, than inside.

If you can, stand outside your door to hand out treats. Then

kids won’t need to touch the door or doorbell.

If you’re unable to sit outside to hand out treats, clean and

disinfect doorbells and knobs, handrails, and any other high

and scale. Utilizing handmade pigments

sourced from found carbon-based compounds,

Robertson creates large-scale

drawings reminiscent of botanical field

studies.

The work invites us to consider history,

land and resource politics, and

carbon’s duality: life-bearing element

as well as insidious fossil fuel. Walking

in the Dark is a timely and requisite

exhibition that will have the viewer contemplating

the coexisting human and

geologic bodies in our biosphere.

Life Cycles: Using both acrylics and

oils, Salmo based painter Tia Reyden

captures the distinct scenery in the West

Kootenay. Inspired by nature, Reyden

uses light as a key component to communicate

mood and atmosphere in her

work. This exhibition showcases a series

of Reyden’s recent work featuring local

landscapes depicted through the lens of

the changing seasons.

Both exhibits will be in the Langham

Galleries through to December 13. Galleries

are open Thursdays through Sundays

from 1 to 4 pm.

Salmo, Silverton and Slocan have recently completed a Housing

Needs Assessment and shared regional findings through two

community webinars in late September.

A Housing Needs Assessment is a report that describes current

and anticipated housing needs in a community by collecting

data, analyzing trends and speaking with community members.

Under the Local Government Statutes Amendment Act, 2018 a

housing needs report must be done every five years.

Erickson Water System Universal Metering Project. The

board directed staff to prepare an application under the Investing

in Canada Infrastructure Program Rural and Northern

Communities for the Erickson Water System Universal

Metering Project. Universal metering would help support staff

in achieving the established goals of the Drinking Water Conservation

Plan by reducing water demand, improving water

demand management, as well as potentially reducing operating

costs. The board supports the project and commits to a potential

cost share of $809,478 for the project, as well as any potential

cost overruns from Erickson Utility Services

Agricultural Land Reserve Land Exclusions. The board

adopted the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) Exclusion Policy,

effective September 30, 2020. Residents can no longer apply

directly to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) to have

their land removed from the ALR. Local governments, First

Nation governments, The Province of BC, or prescribed public

bodies must be the applicant on the residents’ behalf.

The Rural Affairs committee has reviewed and discussed in

detail how this will affect zoned and un-zoned rural communities.

While it will be a big change, the intent of the policy is

to direct ALR exclusions to be part of a broader community

discussion on agriculture and support for such requests can be

evaluated at this community level. To accompany the policy, the

board must also establish how the new process will be funded.

Staff will investigate options or mechanisms for cost recovery

for processing ALC exclusion applications.
