Congratulations to Cultus Lake Golf Club on the commencement of work on their new entrance way.”

Some of the history around this project is:

On July 19, 2017 Mr. Bahnman appeared before the Board at a Closed Board Meeting requesting the Board’s permission to relocate the entrance into Cultus Golf Club due to traffic safety concerns in the area.

At the September 19, 2018 Closed Board Meeting the Board requested that staff consult with the Fraser Valley Regional District to determine if the proposal could be completed based on the current zoning and that the Cultus Golf Club hold a public information meeting so the community could look at the proposal and provide feedback prior to the project going forward.

On January 23, 2019, the Cultus Golf Club held an evening public information meeting at Cultus Lake Community Hall.  The intent of the meeting was to provide the community with information on the proposed relocation of the entrance into the golf club and a chance for them to provide comments on the proposal.  Thirty-five people signed in at the door.

At the February 20, 2019 Regular Board Meeting, the Board received a report from the Manager of Park Operations that provided the following information provided by Mr. Bahnman:

  1. Ministry of Highways, Transportation and Infrastructure permit to construct, use and maintain access to a provincial public highway;
  2. public information meeting notice;
  3. meeting attendance list;
  4. list of 23 emails addressed to Mr. Bahnman supporting the proposal; and
  5. petition of support including the name, address and telephone number of 51 individuals.

Also included in the report was information provided from Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) Policy Analyst – First Nations Relations, Jessica Morrison who advised staff that consideration should be given to completing an archeological impact assessment prior to project commencement. While the assessment is not mandatory, pending changes to Heritage Conservation Act of BC are expected to necessitate assessments for similar developments later this year.

At the February 20, 2019 Regular Board meeting, the Board passed the following resolution:

THAT Mr. Bahnman be requested to perform an archaeological impact assessment and that the Board be provided with the receipt of letter in opposition of the entrance proposal.”

In August, 2019 Mr. Bahnman provided the Chief Administrative Officer with an email from Cara Brendzy, Stolo Nation advising that Anna Baran who does the assessments did not see the need for an archaeological assessment for the proposed entrance.

As the First Nations do not require an archaeological assessment done for the area, staff are bringing Mr. Bahnman’s proposal forward and requesting the Board’s approval for relocating the entrance and directing the Chief Administrative Officer to negotiate an agreement for the area.

The Cultus Lake Park Board approved the following resolution on August 16, 2019:

THAT the Cultus Lake Park Board approve the relocation of the Cultus Golf Club entrance and direct the Chief Administrative Officer to enter into negotiations with the Cultus Golf Club for an agreement on the land being used.

Cultus Lake Park Organizational Change

January 14, 2021

Cultus Lake Park Organizational Change

I am pleased to announce a significant change to the Cultus Lake Parks organization.

Rachel Litchfield is taking on a newly created role, Rachel’s new title will be, Manager of Corporate Services / Corporate Officer responsible for Administration.

In this new position Rachel will have Reception, Leasing and the new Communications position reporting directly to her. She will continue to handle all of the internal corporate documents including the Board meeting agenda packages and the meeting minutes.

Rachel started with the Park back in 2004 and has held many internal positions, both Union and Exempt. Rachel has also volunteered on Park committees through out the years. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and I am excited to see her move into this new role.

The position of Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive Officer will not be filled and will no longer exist at the Park.

Please join me in congratulating Rachel on this well-deserved promotion.

Joe Lamb

Chief Administrative Officer
