Whistler council endorses crown land lease application

Cheakamus Lake Road site could help Whistler Search and Rescue ease 'space availability challenges'



The RMOW is looking to secure a Crown Land Lease to help accommodate Whistler Search and Rescue (WSAR) operations.

At its Aug. 13 meeting, council endorsed a lease application for a small parcel of land on Cheakamus Lake Road near Highway 99.

The site, about half a hectare in size, is currently held by BC Hydro (but not currently in use).

WSAR has some "space availability challenges" at its current site at the RMOW's public works yard, and could use the extra space for vehicle and rescue gear storage, according to a report to council.
