Maber Flats project moves ahead in Central Saanich

The Maber Flats project is getting under way after three recommendations were passed.

Central Saanich’s Maber Flats water detention project looks to begin in earnest this year.

The Maber Flats project is getting under way after three recommendations were passed at the District of Central Saanich’s recent committee of the whole meeting.

The District, pending final ratification, will proceed with site works on the Maber Flats parcel and seek potential partnerships with community groups to perform ongoing management on invasive species.

The municipality also approved putting out a Request For Proposals (RFP) for a detailed design of the proposed water drainage facility.

This includes conducting stakeholder consultation and moving previously-approved funds into the 2016 budget year.
