Changes to Resource Road Act coming: need your input

Do you use B.C.’s resource roads for work, recreation, or do you live in or visit rural communities that use resource roads?

If so, help the Ministry of Forests, Lands & Natural Resource Operations serve you better by contributing to the Natural Resource Road Act Project (NRRA) to improve resource road laws and regulation for the benefit of all users.

Comments are invited on a DISCUSSION PAPER that will help build the foundation for the NRRA.  The principles and proposed policy framework presented in this discussion paper are the starting point for a single, streamlined law that applies to the construction, maintenance, use and deactivation of all resource roads in B.C.

For further information about this opportunity to help shape how we manage resource roads in BC, please visit the project website at http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/mof/nrra/index.htm

And for a News Release concerning this announcement follow this link: http://www.newsroom.gov.bc.ca/2011/10/simplified-resource-road-rules-ben…

We have been advised that MFLNRO may seek input from stakeholder working groups once the initial comment period is complete.

If you have comments or questions about this for BCORMA, please post on our forum: Government Policy: Resource Road Act

BCORMA requests that all summer-motorized backcountry recreationalist contribute so he have made input.  Without your input, I can not get action on your input.
