Carr’s Landing Community & Recreation Association is collaborating with the Lake Country Fire Department (LCFD) on a pilot of the FireSmart Neighbourhood Champions program.


This program encourages self-organized groups of residents to take the lead in implementing solutions for wildfire safety on their own properties. 


We need two or three neighbourhood champions to head up the projects in their immediate neighbourhood of between five and twelve homes, where all or most neighbours are willing to commit to take part. LCFD will be training firefighters to be the staff support to such efforts, providing an info session to residents and then undertaking a FireSmart survey of the homes/yards involved. 


The neighbourhood champion will rally the neighbours and ensure they are committed to action, act as a liaison between the LCFD and neighbours, organize work parties and ensure the recommendations are planned and carried out (may be over a period of years in the case of labour-intense or more expensive actions).  The survey, recommendations and expectations of the Neighbourhood program will be at a slightly reduced level from the 3 hour Advanced Home Assessments that have been offered by LCFD. 


Neighbourhood champions should be committed to spending at least 25 hours between now and late fall 2024. They will take a one-hour training, meet with LCFD staff, speak to each neighbour, organize and co-present a neighbourhood info session, organize work bees and assist neighbours in understanding expectations, finding resources, carrying out needed work and arranging, with the LCFD, for disposal of materials removed from neighbourhood premises. Reporting on the success of the initiative and assessing the challenges and benefits at the end of the year is also expected.

The Future of Water in Carr’s Landing


March 5th, 2024

Other strategy sessions videos (and regular council meetings) are posted on the District of Lake Country's website.

Important Notice for Carr's Landing Homeowners re: the new Short-Term Rental Accommodation Act and extension of the Speculation & Vacancy Tax Act to the District of Lake Country.


The BC Government has made two recent decisions that impact homeowners in our area.  The Speculation & Vacancy Tax was expanded to include our area and others in the Okanagan, effective January 1, 2024.  The Short-Term Rental Accommodation Act comes into force on May 1, 2024 and applies to all short term rentals in the province.  Both pieces of legislation are in addition to any similar regulations in place locally or nationally.  For the Spec Tax, all District of Lake Country homeowners will complete a declaration, early in 2025, about the use of their homes in 2024, which will determine if an additional tax (of 0.5 or 2% of the assessed value of the home) will be applied to the property tax due July 2025.  Declaration of STR use of a property and more Spec Tax information is available at:

Stan Brynjofson


CLCRA is sad to share the news that long time volunteer and Board member, Stan Brynjolfson, passed away on October 4th. Stan and his wife, Edith, lived in Vancouver, Delta and Langley over their working years, during which Stan was an Analytical Chemist. Upon retirement, they moved to their home on Commonage in fall 2000 and both quickly became involved with the Community & Recreation Association. Stan was involved with the development of the Carr’s Landing Neighbourhood Plan as well as with the local Environmental Association.  A long time Board member of CLCRA, Stan's last term officially ended at the Annual General Meeting the day after her died. Stan was actively involved in the barbeques that used to be held at Coral Beach Park and worked on initiatives like the Coral Beach float and tennis court surfacing.  When not volunteering, Stan enjoyed making beer and wine, visits from his grandchildren and working on his classic 1951 Chevy.  One of Stan’s last outings was to a mini show and shine on Schaad Road, with his two sons.  A memorial for Stan was held Saturday, November 5th, in Langley.
