Chilliwack Council supports trading ALR land for farmland protection at Carey Point

Posted on by Mike Hellinger

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.

Boston Marathon Bombing 1 Year Later

Posted on by Jeff Molnar

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.   To reflect on the events of April 15, 2013, Boston Marathon survivors returned to the finish line with uplifting messages painted on their skin.

 

Photographer Robert X. Fogarty of Dear World, a message-on-skin photography project, prepared the portraits of the survivors.

While quite a few people declined Fogarty’s offer, a handful of runners and bystanders decided to participate. For each portrait, which Fogarty shot in late February and early March, he asked his subject to choose something they’d like to say to the world.

 

Celeste Corcoran of Lowell, Mass., chose to write “Still Standing” on her legs. Fogarty photographed her sitting at the finish line with her two prosthetics placed next to her.
