British Columbians are invited to comment on a proposed amendment to a scenic-area boundary on Crown land in the Sea to Sky Natural Resource District until July 20, 2016.
The proposed amendment is to establish new visual-quality objectives and manage the views affected by forestry operations from the Sea to Sky Gondola, a newly developed, significant public viewpoint in the Shannon Creek area.
Members of the public are invited to submit comments about the proposed boundary amendment during a 30-day review and comment period that ends on July 20, 2016. Written comments may be submitted by email to: email@example.com

The Sea to Sky Natural Resource District covers about 1.1 million hectares of land north of the City of Vancouver. It includes the communities of Lions Bay, Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton.
