Re map above   this is a summary of wishes of property owners on the easterly shores of Lake Catchacoma regarding proposals to re-designate Crown Land adjacent to their properties to be a Provincial Park. November 22, 2002
The following question has been posed to persons owning property between the "Cut" to McGinniss Lake and Spafford’s Bay at the northeast corner of Lake Catchacoma. These persons are threatened by the prospect of having their properties, or the access to their properties, being immediately adjacent to Crown Land that may be redesignated from the General Use to the Provincial Park Land Use designation. As discussed elsewhere there are serious implications for owners of these private properties. Their views are summarized below. Here is the question:

Do you wish to have a space (or more space) of General Use Crown Land between YOUR private property and any part of the KHSS area that is to be re-designated from the General Use land use designation to the Provincial Park land use designation?

Note: A number of persons wished to remain neutral on the issue and certain other properties which front on Lake Catchacoma are not adjacent to Crown Land. The properties which are "landlocked" by other private properties are not directly affected by the proposed re-designation unless they negotiate easements with their neighbours which gives them access to the Crown land proposed to be re-designated.
Affected and concerned persons are adjacent to Crown Land proposed to be re-designated to the Provincial Park land use designation, and they care, they are not neutral.
