What is our vision for the future of the Village of New Denver? Join us on November 19 and share your ideas as we work towards our 100% renewable energy goals.

New Denver, Silverton, Slocan, Nelson, Rossland and the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) are developing a 100% Renewable Energy Plan to build on the region’s clean energy achievements and work toward a carbon neutral future with any remaining energy use coming from renewable sources. The goal is to have healthier and safer communities, stronger economies with better careers, and cleaner energy use locally.

On November 19, residents can learn more and give their input on how we can be successful in transitioning to 100% renewable energy while building strong community.

Topics such as housing density, deforestation, transportation and community planning are examples that illustrate how the community’s priorities can affect the action plan.

You’re invited to join the public renewable energy transition workshop November 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Silverton Memorial Hall to learn more and provide your input into the West Kootenay 100% Renewable Energy Plan.

Local non-profit West Kootenay EcoSociety is developing the regional renewable energy plan and facilitating the workshop. Refreshments will be provided.

Slocan Valley Wildfire Resiliency Program

Slocan Integral Forestry Cooperative (SIFCo) is delivering the Slocan Valley Wildfire Resiliency Program (SVWRP) for the Villages of New Denver, Silverton and Slocan. The first year of the program is focussed on developing a comprehensive long term strategy towards becoming more fire resilient. At the core of the program, the seven FireSmart disciplines play an active and important role in supporting the long term goal of becoming fire adapted as communities.

This summer/fall (2019), as part of our strategic planning towards becoming fire adapted communities, we are holding day long Wildfire Resiliency Open House events within the municipalities. There will be a combined event for Silverton and New Denver, and another event for Slocan area residents. The aim of these public outreach events will be to educate and inform the local community on how their efforts to improve the safety of their home/land are linked to a wider range of wildfire reduction strategies. The dates and locations of the two Open House events are Saturday, September 28 (Slocan) and Sunday, September 29 (Silverton).  Please see the attached image for details.
