What was this engagement about?
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.
How will my contribution make a difference?
The ministry held a Zoom virtual public hearing to answer questions about the exclusion application and receive comments of support or opposition. Comments received will be considered by the Agricultural Land Commission when it reviews the ministry’s application to exclude the land parcel.
