LOS ANGELES , January 15, 2013 () – A team from BC Timber Sales (BCTS) will examine concerns related to a proposed logging plan for the Lynch Creek area, which connects the Granby and Gladstone Provincial Parks, during the week of Jan. 14, said Nelson-based BCTS planner Ingrid Russell, The Boundary Sentinel reported on Jan. 13.

At an earlier meeting in May 2012, Brown Creek residents voiced their concerns about the plan to BCTS. They also had an opportunity to view detailed maps of the seven proposed cut blocks totaling roughly 37,000 m3 of timber.  The blocks, which are scheduled to auctioned, are expected to be harvested from early 2013 to 2014.

Residents’ concerns include the project's potential short and long-term effects on local roads, the environment and wildlife such as the red-listed Grizzly Bear, according to The Boundary Sentinel’s report.

Russell, who has personally reviewed each inquiry at least once already, sent some residents an invitation for comments about the plan in November. She also posted the request on the Friends and Residents of the North Fork blog after being told that some residents had not received the letter.

After wrapping up the information-gathering period on Jan. 11, Russell said she and a team of other BCTS staff will sort through everyone’s responses and decide how to best respond to residents’ concerns.

This response could include writing letters, holding a public meeting, or both, Russell said, adding that she expects BCTS to contact residents during the next few weeks. Russell noted the company already has solutions to address some of the concerns.
