Important Notices

The Larch Hills Nordic Society would like to invite all users of the Larch Hills recreation area to a Community Engagement Meeting on Tuesday November 4, 2014 at the Downtown Activity Centre, 451 Shuswap St SW, Salmon Arm

This public meeting is a integral part of the Strategic Planning Process that was initiated this fall. All who have an interest in the future plans of this important local recreation area, both summer and winter users, are welcome to participate.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm with the meeting starting at 7:00 pm, coffee, refreshments and door prizes will all be included.

 _________________________________________________________________________________________

The Larch Hills Nordic Society has initiated a strategic planning process by recruiting the services of a planning professional, Kathy Porter of Summit Environmental Consultants Inc. The planning process was approved at last years AGM and will be carried out through fall and early winter this year. The executive has selected a steering committee to facilitate the process, including Roger Beardmore, Blaine Carson, Keith Cox, Randi Ostby, Deb Phillips, Clint Smith, Pauline Waelti, and David Wallensteen.

This strategic plan will be driven by the wishes of the club and will only be successful with the participation of the membership, users, and agencies that are using and involved in the Larch Hills Ski Area; as such we will be conducting both an on line survey and public open house meeting this fall.

We encourage everyone to give some thought as to what you would like the Larch Hills Nordic Society and the Larch Hills recreation area to look like moving into the future. It is you the users that will have an opportunity to direct our plans moving forward.

Stay tuned through both the website and the Larch Hills e news bulletins for upcoming meetings and the online survey.

Thank you

From the Strategic Planning Steering Committee
