New “No Firearms Discharge” Signs
The Tyaughton Lake Ratepayers had previously asked the SLRD for updated signage with more signs for the area in key locations. This request was prior to me becoming the Area A Director. I was asked to help and working with the Tyaughton Lake and Gun Creek Road area ratepayers groups this year, a plan was created to install more and updated signage. The new signs have the updated No Firearm Discharge (NFD) zone , private properties highlighted and “You Are Here” icons. I want to thank in particular Mary Benson and Jim Blair for the work they did in making sure the locations and sign content was what the ratepayer groups wanted.
The new signs are all up now! I want to thank the SLRD Electoral Area Directors for approving the costs associated for the purchase and installation of the signs through the SLRD Area A Select Funds. I also want to thank the SLRD Staff and Contractor for all the help they have given to make this project come together and installed.
SLRD Area A “No Firearms Discharge” Bylaw
This is a link to the SLRD Area A Bylaw. SLRD Area A “No Firearms Discharge” Bylaw . As you will see, I have highlighted two of the main Exemptions that pertain to this Bylaw. One of them is that a licensed hunter can still hunt in the NFD zone but still has to be 100 meters from a dwelling as per the Hunting Regulations.

This link is to a PDF file of the final version of the signs, that are now installed. The large sign is 72″ wide by 48″ high and the rest of the signs are 24″ wide by 36″ high: Tyaughton Lake-Gun Creek Road Final NFD Signs . The image above is the large sign replacing the old outdated one.
Gun Lake Ratepayers “No Firearms Discharge” Signs
I have also worked with the Gun Lake Ratepayers Association as they have requested new NFD signage and as of this writing they are being manufactured. They more than likely now, will not be installed until next spring.
