Sign, strategy, senior

NKDF donations see fruition of Vanderhoof projects

CHEQUE: Councillor Darren Carpenter

Vanderhoof’s welcome sign, strategy project and senior-centre renovation have/will see fruition under the wing of Nechako Kitimat Development Fund.

Recently presented to the District of Vanderhoof (DOV) was the final installment ($22,870)  for three projects totaling upwards of $50,000. They include the DOV Electronic Sign, the DOV Alternative Capital Funding Strategy Project and the DOV Senior Friendship Centre Renovation.

The sign is now complete and has been installed on HWY 16 out front of the New Gold building. Industry partners are able to use the sign to reach large diverse audiences for marketing purposes. It will be managed through the DOV and in total, NKDF provided $9,000 toward the project.

The Capitol Funding Strategy is also complete and contracted CIFF Management Corporation  to identify funding strategies for a number of projects the DOV would like to move forward on including the Aquatic Centre, Community Centre and College Campus. The completed Alternative Capital Funding Strategy has recommendations, possible timelines and different options to consider. NKDF approved a maximum of up to $15,000 toward the project and in actuality provided $10,810 as the project came in under budget.

The Friendship Centre renovation is expected to be complete by the end of February and will upgrade the Senior Friendship Centre building. This includes an upgraded bathroom to become senior friendly, repainting the main halls, replacing the entrance way flooring and upgrading the sound system. NKDF approved funding in the amount of $30,000.00 for this project.
