Working with qRD qathet Regional District

This Section includes current qRD related projects in Lund.

This section is work in progress as we build effective communications and community engagement tools. 

It is great that the Regional district is asking for input from us,  so please think about it. 

We look forward to hearing from you. 

Bleachers at Craig Park .

qRD seeks input : remove or replace bleachers in Craig Park.

The qathet Regional District (qRD) has asked for feedback about the bleachers at Craig Park. They are old and will cost $53,000 to replace . Do we want them rebuilt or are there other ideas as to upgrades to Craig Park that could benefit from the funds. It is great that the qRD is asking for input from us,  so please think about it.  

Add you voice using the email link button below, we'll add comments to this website which can be viewed by Patrick Devereaux at the qRD. Thanks from the LCS Board.

The Texada Island Recreation Commission (TIRC) has endorsed the removal of bleachers at Gillies Bay and the Van Anda ballfields.TIRC understands that there has not been a baseball game played in over ten years. Society is changing and sitting watching baseball games just doesn’t happen anymore. We think re-building them would be an unwise use of resources. Please let me know what the group thinks. 

In 2021, qRD will replace damaged floor boards in the gazebo.

Suggestions to date have included:

 

A bike trail, or skateboard park preserving trees encouraging outdoor recreation. 

A better platform for bands (the gazebo has terrible acoustics).

One request was that funds saved from rebuilding the bleachers be invested into upgrades for the Lund Gazebo. 

Frisbee golf course. 

Land Use By-laws

qRD moves to create land-use bylaws.

 

There has been a renewed effort by the qRD to create a set of bylaws that would  regulate land use and development in the region, this could mean things like housing inspections and other regulations. Folks have been vocal that this move could take away from what makes Lund special.  Here is the feasibility study the qRD requested, which came out last spring.  https://www.qathet.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Feasibility-Study-2020-2.pdf

We have limited information on the timeline or consultation for this, but we will try to find out more and update this page as we learn more.
