Nakusp waterfront walkway.

Help Rotary light up the waterfront

The Rotary is one of many societies seeking funding at the CBT Community Initiatives Program.

The Rotary Club of Nakusp is proposing to “Light Up Our Waterfront” from the Japanese Garden to the boat launch area.

We all love our village and our waterfront. Tourists and locals enjoy the stroll, but are limited by the lack of lighting in the evenings.

Lighting will be subtle and mostly downcast to allow viewing of the stars and our magnificent walkway. Security and safety will be enhanced for all. We will be able to use the walkway year-round and after dark. Lighting will illuminate handrails, wheelchair ramps, stairways, benches, some trees and shrubs, the pergolas and the history kiosk. Lighting hours will be timer controlled and the cost after installation will be less than $30 per year.

Public support of Rotary’s 2016 Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) application is critical. If we cannot secure this year’s grant, we cannot “Light up our Waterfront”.

Please vote to support this project on April 17. Voting time 12-4 p.m. at the arena auditorium.
