Bannock Point Development and Enhancement
From 2009 to 2017, during our first eight years of operation, we focused on local job creation, a safer community, and stewardship of our landbase. Over $4,000,000 were brought into the community of the Slocan Valley and many jobs were created. Now, in 2017, we continue our focus on wildland-urban interface work with a $430,000 investment grant going toward 44 Hectares of land in and around the Village of New Denver. We are also beginning the implementation phase of our 7-year Landscape Level Wildfire Protection Plan for the Slocan Valley. A $425,000 grant from the Forest Enhancement Society of BC for 2017 will aid us in accomplishing our goals. In 2016 SIFCo completed a computer program that allows us to light virtual fires and identify the main travel paths of fire within our landbase. This tool enabled us to identify Strategic Fuel Management Zones that became the foundations of our Landscape Level Wildfire Protection Plan.
