The City of Chilliwack is supporting an idea to exclude 17.6 hectares of land on Parr Rd from the Agricultural Land Reserve. The developer is hoping to use it for “employment lands” particularly for agri-industrial and business park use. Now, normally taking any land out of the ALR would be frowned upon…in fact, applications to exclude this land were rejected twice, in 2003 and 2012 by the Agricultural Land Commission. But what makes this application different is that this time, the developer is proposing to offset the loss of land on Parr Rd by making improvements to the berm at Carey Point, which could potentially protect 156 hectares of farmland from flooding, much of which is used for blueberry production. The exclusion of the property on Parr would also facilitate the future linkage of Airport Rd to Eagle Landing Parkway, something that has been in the plans for a while, but would not otherwise have been completed for at least a decade. This new road would be at the cost of the developer. Councilor Ken Huttema says this proposal is something the city’s Agricultural Advisory Committee has been working on for some time.
