Why did you do the follow-up studies?

Based on the type of hazard and the level of risk identified in the first study, the CVRD committed to the community that they would try to do two things: 1) undertake further investigations to refine the information within the polygons; and, 2) try to reduce the impact on property owners having to do additional engineering work prior to development. The second study now provides this information at a resolution of 1:5,000 and does not require property owners to do landscape level hazard assessments beyond their property boundaries with regards to landslides.
