The Valemount Glacier Destinations project continues to progress through the Provincial and local government approval processes. On Thursday, September 15, 2016 the project received rezoning approval from the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.
The Regional District Directors voted unanimously to adopt a new zoning bylaw for the project, which amends the project area to match the provincially approved Master Plan. The land will also be designated within a Development Permit Area for two purposes:
- The protection of the natural environment, its ecosystems and biological diversity;
- The protection of development from hazardous conditions.
The construction of resort buildings and subdivisions will require Development Permit approval from the Regional District Board, in addition to compliance with the Design Guidelines of the Master Plan. Construction will also require building permits.
The project team is presently working towards completing a Master Development Agreement with the Province.
The Master Plan can be downloaded here.
