Vernon Creek and BX Creek assessments


The City of Vernon will be completing baseline habitat assessments in both Vernon Creek and BX Creek next week. The assessments will be conducted in Polson Park and BX Dog Park, and are a requirement from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to better assess impacts and improvements from adjacent projects.

For the safety of public and to ensure accuracy of the assessments, residents are asked to stay away from flagged and fenced off portions of BX Dog Park and Polson Park. Please also keep yourselves and your pets out of the creeks while assessments are being conducted.

Crews are anticipated to be in the following areas next week:

  • BX Dog Park: October 25
  • Polson Park: October 26 - 28

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation while this work is being completed.
