Hydroelectric Plan Includes New RV Sites
Water monitoring programs, street lighting, and long-stay RV sites at Peace Island Park are just some of the proposed mitigation measures the District of Taylor and B.C. Hydro have agreed on in the event the dam project goes ahead. Members of the public got a first look at and opportunity to comment on the recently finalized community agreement Tuesday night (Jan. 7) in Taylor, British Columbia, according to Fort St. John’s Energeticcity.ca.
In Peace Island Park, which is owned by B.C. Hydro and leased by Taylor, a long-stay RV site plan will be developed to expand the supply of temporary accommodation. At least 20 new spaces and overflow parking will be developed, although it’s noted that the sites are not suitable for year-round accommodation. Some of those 20 of may be held for B.C. Hydro’s workforce.
Other issues in the community agreement — which doesn’t mean the project is approved — included addressing fog concerns by adding street lights, and the electric company protecting Taylor’s water supply.
