DRAFT Barnston Island Agricultural Viability Study

The Barnston Island community is invited to review and provide feedback on the draft of the Barnston Island Agricultural Viability Study. Developing a study to explore ways to improve the long-term viability of agriculture on the island was an action item identified through the recently adopted Electoral Area A OCP. Metro Vancouver has engaged Upland Agricultural Consulting to prepare this work, and staff from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Agricultural Land Commission have also been involved. Meetings were held on Barnston Island on October 25 and December 13, 2018. Residents and farmers can provide their feedback on the Study by email to Tom.Pearce@metrovancouver.org by Friday, January 11, 2019. For questions, please contact Tom Pearce, Regional Planner, at 604.432.6383
