The Kootenay Lake Partnership (KLP) said in its latest announcement that they are hosting a series of public open houses next month.
These meetings, set for Boswell August 2, North Shore Hall August 8 and Kaslo August 15, is an opportunity for the public to learn about the Kootenay Lake Shoreline Guidance Document, which is the result of a comprehensive Sensitive Habitat Inventory Mapping Project, said KLP.
The Shoreline Guidance Document directs shoreline development activities such as docks, retaining walls, mooring buoys, or dredging activities to protect high value shoreline habitats.
The intent of the Shoreline Guidance Document is to allow common, low-risk shoreline activities to proceed with minimal regulatory oversight.
These meetings will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. with a presentation beginning 7 p.m.
