News and Announcements

Invasive Plant Program update

April 22, 2014 - In response to concerns raised by the agricultural sector the Peace River Regional District is planning to enact an invasive plant bylaw. This bylaw will assist with the compliance and enforcement component of the invasive plant program aimed at protecting the region’s economy, environment and social values from invasive plants and ensuring that existing infestations are managed for the benefit of all residents and stakeholders.

With this in mind, the PRRD Invasive Plant Committee will be recommending to the Regional Board that a regulation and control bylaw be enacted to achieve this objective at their May 15, 2014 meeting.
