"to create attractive, impact full entrances to the City"
As is normal with any major project, consultation and research has taken place with many stakeholders including Rocky Mountain Naturalists and Ducks Unlimited. The area has the potential to include a wheelchair accessible informational kiosk for business listings, maps and wildlife information, picnic tables, landscaping and hopefully a new Welcome to Cranbrook sign. Columbia Basin Trust has granted the City $50,000 but in order to fully complete the project another $60,000 has been proposed to come out of the budget surplus. As is normal with any major project, City staff and administration pull together the information necessary on which to base a final decision. It is now up to Council to decide whether to accept the full extent of improvements or to do less.
