URGENT! Stop the removal of 880 acres from the ALR and support agricultural and sustainable initiatives in Powell River.
Powell River’s farming future is in crisis. The City of Powell River and its land development corporation have applied to the Agricultural Land Commission to remove 880 acres within the City from the Agricultural Land Reserve, one of the largest exclusion applications ever. ALERT, the Agricultural Land Emergency Response Team, is working to keep the land in the ALR and to devote it to varied agricultural, educational, value added and residential uses, called the Alternative Agricultural Plan.
