"Everybody understands these days, you don't clear cut the world to get development."
"I support Coun. Hogarth's move to review streamside protection. I hear comments that in the ALR [Agricultural Land Reserve] they're working with five metre setbacks, and yet here in the district we're working with 100 feet."
Coun. Mike Morden echoed Hogarth's view.

Growth has to be balanced and done to build a resilient community that can cope with climate change, she added.
Those rules usually require any developments to be set back up to 30 metres from stream banks.
Morden added that environmental requirements seem to be always changing. "A lot of what I hear is that it's a moving ball."

Focus groups show that people are happy with Maple Ridge's stream protection regulations and its environmental mapping system, and that wildlife habitats have to be maintained.
But other municipalities adopted riparian area regulations, for which environmental consultants, hired by developers, decide the distance a development is allowed from streams.
The goal of the strategy is to consolidate and fine tune Maple Ridge's environmental policies and practices into a single document that all can easily understood.
Councillors wanted more background information about the reason for creating an environmental management strategy, a goal that dates back to 2009 and which is supported in the official community plan.
