Bannock Point Development and Enhancement
From 2009 to 2015, during our first six years of operation, we focused on local job creation, a safer community, and stewardship of our landbase. Over $2,500,000 was brought into the Community of the Slocan Valley and many jobs were created. In 2015 we are focusing on continuing our investment in wildland-urban interface work with a $395,000 investment grant going toward 35 Hectares of Land North and East of the Village of Silverton. We will also begin working with the village of New Denver in 2016 focusing on making the Village safer with Interface work in key areas surrounding the village. SIFCo has just completed a computer program that allows us to light virtual fires and identify the main travels paths of fire within our landbase. This tool will allow us to identify Strategic Fuel Management Zones. Please browse our website and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
