A new committee is being brought together to formulate a restoration project on lands adjacent to Nahounli Creek.

The land, owned by the District of Fort St. James, will be part of the “responsible waterfront development project” according to Kevin Crook, chief administrative assistant for the District of Fort St. James.

“It’s important that we look at this, to see how we can restore these lands especially how to bring back salmon levels that have depleted in the last few years,” Crook said.

Efforts will be made to include and speak with property owners and community members on ways of improving and maintaining the land.

The development project, set out by the Regional District of Bulkley and Nechako, outlines information on responsible waterfront development and waterfront living including: erosion and sediment control, building setbacks, sewage disposal, information on boating and docks, shoreline rehabilitation, landscaping and lawn care.

Ways of reducing and controlling garbage and recycling on the lands will also be examined.

For more information regarding the Nahounli Creek Lands, call the Fort St. James District Office at: (250) 996-8233 or visit: www.rdbn.bc.ca
