A geotechnical study was conducted and design drawings for the addition of a staircase to the beach were prepared.
In the fall of 2017, parks staff met onsite with neighbours in the area to discuss the project and listen to neighbour comments and questions about the proposed project. Just over half responses received were supportive of the stairs, with most not wanting any other improvement (e.g. parking). Just under half the responses received did not want the RDN to construct stairs at this site. A full summary of the feedback is here.
At the Regional Board's regular meeting on April 24th, 2018, the decision was made to proceed with the final design, permitting and construction of the Driftwood Road beach access trail improvements in 2018 and not plan for additional parking at this time.
