Potential funding for pool design
The next six-digit contribution to Vanderhoof’s pool may come from the Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund.
Vanderhoof’s district council is applying to the NKDF society for funding towards the Vanderhoof Aquatic Centre’s architectural designs.
Though the society normally does not fund projects of this scale, its board had approached Vanderhoof as the NKDF was undersubscribed this year, said Tom Clement, the council’s Chief Administrative Officer.
Costing between $100,000 to $200,000, the pool’s architectural designs would take a year to secure, Clement added.
“If we have everything ready when we get the funding, we can move ahead with the project,” he said. “Something we can do while we’re fundraising.”
Correction from the Omineca Express’ Council Notes last week:
The allowable cut limit for Vanderhoof’s community forest, still in the application process by the district council, would be 45,000 cubic metres over 10 years.
