April 20, 2018

On Wednesday, April 18th, ECOASIS representatives and a group of technical consultants held a Public Information Session in the Highlands Community Hall. We would like to thank all those that attended and contributed to the discussions.

Please find a link to a copy of the powerpoint presentation for your review. Overall, we felt the discussions and questions were useful to all. The slides in the powerpoint may over-generalize some of the information included within the reports, and we would encourage those who are interested to delve deeper to access the detailed technical reports previously posted and accessible through the links below.

We also understand from feedback of attendees that there was not enough awareness about the meeting taking place. Moving forward, we will ensure that a combination of advertising, direct mail and a website post will be used in order to maximize awareness of future sessions.

We look forward to a follow-up Open House in May that will be scheduled in the coming weeks – the details of which will be disseminated accordingly.

As outlined in the meeting, we encourage residents to send us their questions and comments to HighlandsQuestions@ecoasis.ca.

March 9, 2018

Enclosed are technical reports recently prepared for Ecoasis Developments LLP by professional hydrogeological, environmental and forestry consultants as part of a 2017 review of its Bear Mountain lands within the District of Highlands.

A 2015 Ecoasis application for subdivision approval of the first Phase of its Highlands lands expired in 2017. Prior to submitting a renewed subdivision application, Ecoasis’ intention is to inform the District of Highland’s staff and the Highlands general public of relevant information and implications as they pertain to the 2005 Master Development Agreement (MDA) and respective municipal bylaws.

Enclosed, please find:

Ecoasis is sensitive to the fact that questions and concerns have been raised with respect to stewardship of the aquifer, related environmental concerns and the inconsistences of Bear Mountain practices as mandated in the MDA. An outline of key issues has been provided to professional consultants with a request for review, and feedback.  The documents attached hereto are intended, for the purposes of transparency, to share the findings.
