Village staff provided a report on the cost of digital display driver-feedback speed signage and portable speed bumps along the busiest sections of Broadway and 8 Avenue. Emergency Services and the Department of Highways typically don’t like portable speed bumps so Councillor Joseph Hughes has requested a quote on permanent, concrete bumps instead.

The council is pleased to finally have Kate Tupper’s metal hockey-themed sculpture in place in its permanent home along the entrance wall of the Nakusp Arena.

The village agreed to provide a letter of support to the new Burning Bright program, a concept that hopes to combine workplace experience and forestry jobs for youth in the area in cooperation with Work BC.

Permit and zoning approval is in order for the storage facility going in at 1951 13 St, near the corner of Highway 23 and Hot Springs Road as long as a buffer of trees remains in place to maintain the overall rustic look and feel of the area.

NACFOR legacy fund was adopted to allocate a certain amount of the dividends from the community forest proceeds to an ongoing cumulative trust which can be accessed if a large amount of funding is required for a large project. Some will still be allocated to smaller, community-based grants to assist non-profits with their special projects.
