    Rural health care is a pressing challenge for many small, often isolated, communities in rural BC.  physicians Fenn Smit and Dan O’Connell share their thoughts on practicing medicine in the small West Kootenay village of Kaslo, on a sunny Spring morning in front of the S.S. Moyie .     Watch Video

    The challenges facing small communities struggling to provide an acceptable standard of care for their citizens are legion, ranging from long distances to major care centres to dangerous roads. Often the most difficult hurdle is persuading physicians to consider practicing in small towns.

    The Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Committee (PROSC) are encouraging YOU, the community of Kaslo, to participate in the Village of Kaslo Waterfront and Parks Strategy Project. 
    What is the Waterfront and Parks Strategy Project?  
    Parks, open space and recreation have been identified as valuable resources for residents and visitors alike.  Striving to manage these areas to their full potential, the Village has recognised the need for an environmental management plan, a beach grooming plan, an invasive species control program, and the creation of standard maintenance guidelines for Village staff and volunteers.  In addition, much of this work will support and provide recommendations for a future Parks Master Plan for the community.
    How will the Project be carried out?   
    The Project Management Team will study and evaluate all regulatory, social and environmental aspects of the waterfront and upland parks. This project will expand upon the work initiated by the
    “Parks, Open Space and Recreation” objectives in Kaslo’s 2016 Consolidated Parks Regulation, 2014 Sustainability Strategy for the Village of Kaslo, and the 2011 Village of Kaslo Official Community Plan. 
    Community consultation is central to the success of this project.  PROSC and the Project Management Team are requesting your input on the important values and uses for Kaslo’s waterfront and parks spaces.  The Team has already been engaging with community members in a variety of ways to gather information and ideas on park and waterfront use.
    How, Where and When can YOU participate?  
    The first public open house will be held on September 14, 2017, at J.V. Humphries
    Elementary/Secondary School from 5:30 pm – 8 pm. 
    This will be a “drop-in” format with no formal presentation in order to accommodate as many attendees as possible.  A second public open house will be held in October.
    Who should you contact for information? 
    On behalf of PROSC, the Project is being managed by Marie-Ange Fournier-Beck of VIVID Consulting Ltd. in Kaslo and Brian Arquilla of Mountain Pacific Environmental Consultants Ltd. from Vernon (the Project Management Team).
    The public consultation process is ongoing, throughout this project. If you are unable to attend the public open house, or if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to forward them to: 
    Marie-Ange Fournier-Beck, marie_ange_fbeck@yahoo.com, 250.353.1335
    OR  Brian Arquilla, info@mtn-pac.com, 250.540.4623
