Field Community Plan Update

Yoho National Park

The current Field Community Plan was completed in 2011. It provides a framework for decision making in the community of Field, B.C. Parks Canada is updating the plan to align with the 2022 Yoho Park Management Plan. The new Community Plan will provide a concise community vision and user-friendly guidance about how we can achieve it together.

Public engagement will take place in 2024 and 2025. Help us ensure the updated Community Plan is informed by the knowledge, needs and aspirations of those who know and care about the community of Field, B.C.

Under the Canada National Parks Act, a national park Community Plan must:

  • reflect limits to growth (i.e. commercial area maximums, overnight guest maximums, and community boundaries)
  • be consistent with principles of
    • no net negative environmental impact, and
    • responsible environmental stewardship and heritage conservation

A Community Plan can also provide direction for:

  • The built environment (e.g housing types and designs, utility infrastructure, transportation, wayfinding, inclusive and accessible design)
  • the social environment (e.g. recreational facilities, public spaces, appropriate services, Indigenous relations, emergency management) and
  • managing impacts to the natural environment (e.g. FireSmart, water quality, wildlife movement, animal attractants, invasive species, climate action).
