Action Alert: Special Event Permits on BC Crown Land

For Immediate release: 06-13-10
Contact: James Brown
IMBA BC Regional Coordinator

IMBA needs your help with some very time sensitive information.

The BC The Ministry Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is conducting a fact finding mission to compile information of non-commercial events held on crown land. They will require Special Event Permits for activities hosted by non-commercial groups due to some negative public feedback by motorized activities. As it happens non-motorized groups have now been included in the permit process.

Our goal is to minimize the number of events that will require a special event permit. Therefore, we've created a short survey for BC clubs to fill out. The information gathered by this survey will used to report back to government about mountain bike activities on crown land.

Please take a few minutes to answer some multiple choice questions, the survey closes on June 27th.

The survey can be found here.
