2020 - This project has been carried forward from 2017. It remains on the work plan for 2020 in the
hope that we can define scope. Creation of a Public Art Policy
The development of a Public Art Policy will impact overall economic, social, and cultural development
within the City. It may also encourage and enhance local business and tourism plans. Among the
2016-46 C5 - Public Art Policy many considerations, the policy must identify goals and objectives, guiding principles, definitions, 150,000
benefit, administration/management, financial implications, implementation, promotion, potential
committee structure, and a means of evaluating the program. There are quite a number of
considerations when developing a policy of this nature.

Fort St. John is a winter city. As part of a long term strategy to create a sustainable and recruitable
community, make full use of our city assets and revitalize our downtown, we have developed a Winter

2020- In 2019 work began on an Urban Forest Strategy which is associated with the 100 street
renovations and the downtown plan as well as an overall strategy for the management of our
community tree canopy. The strategy requires an inventory of our Urban Forest which will include
2020-29 C5 - Urban Tree Inventory 100,000
mapping into our GIS system. The inventory would identify, locate, map, determine the condition of
the trees, and make a recommendation on a course of action for each tree and the overall

2020 - The TLE and Urban Reserve process is long and complex. This allocation is to ensure that we
have the resources required to meet our obligations in the TLE and ATR process.
There are three phases to the treaty land entitlement process: Phase I includes land selection and (if
necessary) purchase of land, which is the responsibility of First Nations. This phase ends with a
formal Band Council Resolution that transmits the First Nation’s proposal on the land selected to the
C5 - Urban Reserves and Treaty Land
2018-26 Department and requests that the selected land be added to their reserve. Phase II includes, among 50,000
other things, the completion of the required land surveys and environmental assessments. The
Department’s regional offices are very active during this phase. Phase III is primarily the responsibility
of the Department’s head office. It includes seeking approvals through ministerial orders or orders-in-
council to convert land to reserve status.
