LEES+Associates developed a Recreation Access Management Plan (RAMP) on behalf of Recreation Sites and Trails BC (RSTBC) for the CMCH lands on Mt. Seymour. The RAMP was developed to determine whether formalization of the trail system is warranted and to determine the management approach for the future.
The project involved a rigorous methodology that considers trail assessment data, environmental data, public engagement, Indigenous consultation results as provided by the Province, and input from stakeholders. Through analysis of this data, the RAMP describes management zones; trail classifications and descriptions; monitoring approach recommendations; and limits of acceptable change. The management plan also outlines recommendations for management principles and actions including, but not limited to, wayfinding approach and options, user conflict management strategies, environmental protection, trail user outreach and communication, and development of partnerships and collaboration.
The Management Plan will be a document ready for implementation through work plans and capital plans, if approved by the Province.
