The Ministry of Environment revised the Mount Robson Park Management Plan and asked for public comments on the new draft plan. The revised draft Management Plan and maps are available here.
The FMCBC was concerned about the proposed zoning changes, the possible construction of more permanent facilities in addition to the presently planned one ‘fixed roof accommodation’ lodge, and an increase in helicopter traffic. The FMCBC sent a letter to Scott Back, Planning Section Head of the Ministry of Environment, outlining the concerns and encouraging the Ministry to protect against further incursions of developments and motorized activities thereby protecting the public’s experience when visiting the park and protecting wildlife. Scott Back sent a reply explaining the proposed zoning changes, making it clear that the changes in zoning are very unlikely to ever result in any increase in motorized use of the park or in commercial accommodation.
