The First Nations BCBC lands came out as a preferred site last fall as the committee members looked for suitable land. The site is serviced, fairly flat and close to the village.

There have been several interested parties in that land, not the least of which is VANOC, the H.O.M.E. Committee and the municipality. It was Crown land, transferred by the municipality to First Nations in June as part of their 300 acre land bank deal — one site of eight the two nations chose in Whistler.
