Speaking as co-chair of a Royal Canadian Army Cadet Executive Committee, Terry Isenbecker recently sought Fort St. John City Council support for the application, which would be for a tenure lease of a 4.5 acre parcel of Crown land.

He said the hope is a multifaceted camp could be used by the local Cadet Corp, North Peace Search & Rescue, and a number of other organizations.

For the cadets it would eliminate more than six decades of relying on obtaining lease space from the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, and in the case of rural training, the more than hour long drive to Cameron Lake.

In the case of the local search and rescue chapter, the rugged terrain of the proposed camp site property would allow it to be used as a training facility for volunteers.

The property, about 11 kilometres from Fort St. John, is currently regulated by the Peace River Regional District Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw, and the proposed camp would be within the service area of the Charlie Lake Fire Department.

The PRRD has already launched a North Peace Fringe Area OCP Update and over the coming year will be talking to the community to get feedback on priority issues and new directions.

It has issued a bulletin on ways for area residents to participate in the process, which includes an online survey.
