a.

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SUSTAINABLE LAND USE SELECT COMMITTEE – OCTOBER 17, 2017

i. RE:  OK Industries Application to the Province under the Mines Act
Recommendation:   That Council submit a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to obtain any submissions and correspondence between the applicant and the Ministry subsequent to the initial permit application (March 20, 2017) including, but not limited to, First Nations consultation, Mining Reclamation Plan and potential aquatic environmental impacts on migration of salmonids.      
*Note:  All of these topics appear to be deficiencies in the original application by OK Industries, as does lack of mention by OK Industries of the strong community opposition that became obvious in the design charrette.

ii. RE:  Groundwater Protection – Strategic Planning Priority
Recommendation:  That in light of council’s decision to seek Gas Tax funding for a consultant to review larger scale direction and inter-relation regarding aquifer protection DPA and storm water management that the focus should be on the use, impacts and contamination of groundwater.

b.

Report – L. Hilton, CAO, November 3, 2017 (3900-300)

RE:  Maintenance Of Public Road Right Of Way Serving Private Property
Recommendation:  That the draft policy for Private Driveways on Unopened Highways and draft amendment to the Roads and Traffic Bylaw, attached to the memorandum from the Chief Administrative Officer dated November 3, 2017, be brought forward to Council for formal consideration, and further, that staff be directed to advise property owners and occupiers who rely on this type of road access of Council’s intention to consider a maintenance policy and bylaw amendment, of the date on which the matters will be considered by Council.
