We, the undersigned residents of Canada, wish to express our opposition to the plan to approve for non-farm use and to rezone agricultural land at 181 Brinkworthy Rd. so that it can be developed for recreational use and a parking lot.

Whereas the subject property is a rarity on Salt Spring: fifteen acres of flat, prime agricultural land with adequate water and good exposure;

Whereas thirty percent of Salt Spring's Agricultural Land Reserve has already been used for other purposes or is unsuitable for farming;

Whereas neighbouring residents have expressed serious concerns about the plans to log the property, and the consequences of transforming it into a major recreational hub;

Whereas climate change requires measures such as forest retention for carbon sequestration and an increase in local, sustainable food production;

Whereas neighbouring residents are still strongly opposed to the plans, despite recent consultations;

Whereas there are other options for increasing recreational potential on Salt Spring;

Whereas the local Agricultural Advisory Committee has strongly recommended against approval of non-farm use of the land;


ask that the Agricultural Land Commission reject the request for

non-farm use for 181 Brinkworthy Road, and we ask that the Islands Trust

proceed no further with plans to rezone the land.
