Urban Forest Management Plan Forum June 24, 2015

On June 24, 2015, the City of White Rock held a public forum regarding the Urban Forest Management Plan. This event included an educational presentation by Diamond Head Consulting that explored the following aspects of urban forests:

  • What is an Urban Forest?
  • Why are urban forests important?
  • What are the benefits of adopting an Urban Forest Management Plan (the "Plan")?

The presentation also addressed the current state of the urban forest In White Rock, and provided a summary of the results from the White Rock Urban Forest Survey. You can view the presentation slides and get more details at this link.

Following the presentation, several stations were set up to address different aspects of the Plan, including:

  • the overall vision for the Plan,
  • the objectives of the Plan,
  • characteristics of planting in different areas of the City, and
  • view-related issues.

At each station, participants were given the opportunity to discuss the issues and provide feedback for review by staff. Want to view the posters on each station? Please click here.
