THE LAND CONSERVANCY OF BC TRANSFERS INTEREST IN CHEMAINUS RIVER
PROPERTY TO THE COWICHAN VALLEY REGIONAL DISTRICT FOR PARK
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 21, 2015
Victoria, BC – The Land Conservancy of BC (TLC) has transferred its 50% undivided interest in a Chemainus River property to the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) to create a riparian park along the river.
TLC received its 50% undivided interest in the 80 acre property in 2011. The donor’s intention in making the donation was for TLC to ultimately transfer the property to the CVRD.
The donor, a supporter of TLC’s since 1998, intended the land to become the core of a new regional park.
Upon the completion of the transfer, the CVRD and the owner of the other 50% undivided interest will begin the process to subdivide the parcel to allow for park designation.
“We are proud to complete this transfer to the CVRD to ultimately become parkland,” said John Shields, TLC’s Director of Operations. “We are pleased to have been able to fulfill our donor’s wishes.”
