Shoreline preservation is becoming a greater focus for communities along our coast as populations increase and with it new waterfront developments. Islands Trust and West Vancouver are focusing on preserving the integrity of the natural shorelines of for future generations. The Georgia Strait Alliance has a new initiative that focuses on the waterfront.
On Bowen Island, residents are pushing back on docks currently being built by the developer at Roger Curtis Point. Stop the Docks Campaign highlights the challenges for local governments when higher levels of government shift priorities. Land Use planning and creation of bylaws to protect our shorelines are needed and encouraged by organizations focused on shoreline preservation.
Roger Curtis Point is known by most locals as a beautiful jewel of the coastline and the community is fighting hard to preserve and protect this precious area. To find out more http://stopthedocks.ca/big-dock-video/:
