LETTER: About the dock at Darrell Bay

Re: "Tourism and industry: visions for Darrell Bay" (July 19, 2018)
As many of the Squamish Chief's longtime readers know, Darrell Bay was used to transport staff to and from the Woodfibre pulp mill, which closed in 2006.  What Woodfibre LNG is proposing is to lease the lower two parking lots of Darrell Bay, and the land and foreshore for four years beginning in Oct. 2018 to use as a transportation hub for workers during the construction of the Woodfibre LNG Project.
The lower two parking lots of Darrell Bay are owned by the District of Squamish. It is our intention to work with other current stakeholders to free up extra parking spaces at Darrell Bay where feasible during their peak use —sunny weekends, statutory holidays, March through October.
The foreshore and ferry dock at Darrell Bay are currently under the exclusive use of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) as part of their emergency management plan for the Sea to Sky corridor.  What Woodfibre LNG is proposing is to share the foreshore and ferry dock with MoTI for four years, and potentially leave a new dock at the site for future use.  The decision about current and future use of the foreshore and dock at Darrell Bay rests with MoTI, and not Woodfibre LNG.
If you have any questions for Woodfibre LNG, please call our information line  - 1-888-801-7929 - or visit us online at Woodfibrelng.ca.
