Key Issues
Minimize

Opening Street Ends:

In other words Public Beach Access. The North Vancouver Save Our Shores Society (NVSOSS) vision is to have all public owned street ends opened for safe Beach Access. Some have been blocked by private encroachments, some poorly maintained and dangerous, others remain unopened.

Sewage Treatment

NVSOS wants Metro Vancouver to install Tertiary sewage treatment at the new Lions Gate plant this year instead of at some nebulous future date to stop pollutants being flushed into the Salish Sea on outgoing tides. (see "Items of Interest" for more information.) 

Docks 

Some existing docks along the foreshore impede walking and enjoyment of the beach areas by the general public. Some have a serious negative impact upon the scenic views of the area.  NVSOSS believes that a few well designed and architectural pleasing community docks with a single access point to the shore would better serve and address the needs and concerns of all. Alternatively, each waterfront resident could be provided with a properly designed mooring buoy for his craft and then all man made structures could be removed from the area's inter-tidal zone.

Encroachments

NVSOSS is particularly worried and concerned about the indiscriminate proliferation of private docks, structures and other forms of encroachment which have already taken place or are planned for the inter-tidal beach zones of the District. Our area of concern extends from Maplewood Flats to Deep Cove and beyond.

Stewardship

We are all Stewards of our Foreshore and Beach. We must practice conservation, preservation and enhancement at all times, in order to protect this precious jewel that we are so fortunate to have as our backyard, for this generation and for future generations to enjoy.
