Preservation celebration in Meadowbrook

Celebrate the new Cherry Creek Park For the Bulletin

The Meadowbrook Community Association has succeeded in getting a prohibition on future mining on 400+ acres in Meadowbrook close to Cherry Creek Falls. The prohibition enables the Regional District of the East Kootenay to proceed with plans for a 40 acre day use only regional park. The Association will be hosting a celebration of the preservation of Cherry Creek Falls on Sunday, May 26, 2013 from 1:00 to 3:00pm at Cherry Creek Falls, rain or shine. There will be signs beginning on Highway 95A east of Kimberley to guide anyone needing directions. President, Bob Johnstone, said, “Our Association invites everyone to join us in celebrating the preservation of Cherry Creek Falls for future generations. Come and enjoy the free food, share memories, and offer ideas for the park”.

daily bulletin

First draft of trail plan ready

From Page 1 “It is important to understand that particular groups, such as the Kimberley Nature Park Society and the Kimberley Nordic Club, will maintain control of specifics of how they manage their trails. The draft plan opens the door to more communication, sharing of practices and coordination, where feasible, between the various groups.” Community support and comment on the plan is important, the group believes, because the more buy-in from the public the plan gets, the more likely it is that values will be protected and interests balanced. The plan addresses 15 specific trail areas in and around Kimberley; Bootleg; Mr. Toad; Campground; Forest Crowne; Levirs; Lois Creek; Sullivan Hill; Northstar Mountain; Kimberley Nordic Club; Kimberley Nature Park; Horse Barn Valley Interpretive Forest; Mark Creek; The Hoodoos and Butte and Concentrator Hill. The draft plan is available for view now at www.tourismkimberley.com/draftplan. There will also be a public meeting seeking feedback on May 30 at Centennial Hall, 7 p.m. Feedback can also be provided by e-mail: trailskimberley@gmail. com “The trails management groups very much look forward to hearing your thoughts and any concerns about this general plan for trails around Kimberley,” Ferguson said. “The hope is that this document, with support from the public, will help lead the way into a future with even more sustainable, well supported and legal trails for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.”
