Village of Lytton Update – April 1, 2022

By-Election

Voters can request a mail ballot from the Village website beginning Monday, April 4. The last day to request a mail ballot is Thursday, April 28 at 4 pm. To be counted, a mail ballot must be received by the Chief Election Officer no later than 8 pm on General Voting Day – April 30, 2022.

Heritage Permit in place

The province has taken steps to support community-wide recovery in Lytton while protecting sensitive archaeological resources and promoting compliance with the Heritage Conservation Act. The Archaeology Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development has issued a Heritage Investigation Permit. The permit is intended to support all types of archaeological assessments that may be required for demolition or reconstruction within the Village.

It is recommended that individual landowners (or their delegates) be added to the permit in advance of land-altering activities to avoid delays or stoppage of work. These delays can occur if protected archaeological sites or materials are discovered during non-permitted work.

Link to the Heritage Permit page on the village website for details on submitting a request and receiving recommendations from the Archaeology Branch. https://lytton.ca/recovery/heritage-permit/

Update on the prescribed burn in Lytton area

Smoke and flames may be visible from Lytton this weekend. The BC Wildfire Service and Skuppah Indian Band plan to conduct a 13-hectare prescribed burn south of the Village. BC Wildfire Service is watching the site and weather conditions closely and it looks like all conditions will align for the burn to possibly happen the April 1 weekend. https://lytton.ca/updates/prescribed-burn-scheduled-for-march-14/
