Peace Lookout Drainage and Stormwater Management Study

Purpose: The Peace Lookout is located on crown land approximately 3km south on 100th Street from the intersection of 100th Street and Highway 97, just outside of the municipal boundaries of Fort St. John. Beginning in 2009, the Regional District investigated the possibility of taking on this Lookout as a Regional Park, but discontinued the project in 2012. In 2017, there was renewed interest in the potential development of the location. In 2018 the Regional District has budgeted to complete a Drainage and Stormwater Management Study.

There have been 4 studies previously completed by the Regional District at this location, which can be found below;
