RD wants old ski hill cleaned up

Board requesting government to approve funding to commence clean-up of Forbidden Plateau

Edwin Grieve, Area C director of the Comox Valley Regional District, has penned a letter to Premier Christy Clark about the unsightliness of the old Forbidden Plateau ski hill and surrounding area on Mt. Beecher and Wood Mountain, which is a Class C provincial park.

In the letter — approved last week by the CVRD board — Grieve notes potential environmental and public safety concerns since 1999 when the lodge suffered a collapsed roof. In February of 2002, remaining lodge structures were destroyed by fire.

The board is requesting government to approve funding to commence clean-up and remediation of the area as soon as possible.
