The Regional District of Central Kootenay has approved the Village of Nakusp’s application for funds to complete two maintenance projects at the Nakusp Arena and to purchase an electronic radar speed display sign.

During the July RDCK board meeting, $22,625.81 was approved to be made available to the Village of Nakusp through the community development grant program.

The RDCK community program was established with the goal of supporting social, economic and environmental initiatives of residents and organizations within the district.

The Village of Nakusp will use the money to complete maintenance on the fire escape stairs outside the Nakusp Arena as well as address the window frame damage in the curling rink. The frames have been targeted by ants but, “this is just maintenance, not a major repair,” Chief Administrative Officer Laurie Taylor clarified.

A radar speed sign has been ordered by the village, and will be installed on Broadway Street near the Nakusp Public beach upon arrival.

“We have had issues in the past with speeding in various parts of town, so the idea is to have ones of those notice boards that we can move around to let motorists know when they are speeding,” Taylor explained. “The first area we want to hit is the recreation area by the beach.”
