A return to extended sunny, dry weather has resulted in EXTREME fire hazard conditions throughout the District of Squamish. Work plans involving high-risk activities such as using fire- or spark-producing tools, grinding, or mechanical land clearing must cease until further notice.
An open campfire ban remains in effect within the District of Squamish despite the Coastal Fire Centre lifting their ban across the broader region. While cooler temperatures and rain are forecasted, conditions are still too dry locally to lift the ban.
A developer has been chosen for the Squamish Oceanfront lands. Negotiations will now begin with a deal expected by mid 2014.
The completed plan will outline policy directions and design guidelines to ensure that Downtown Squamish becomes a vibrant and healthy core of the community for commerce, culture, and creativity.
