Support needed for Rail Trail Project
It’s that time of the year again when we ask for your support for a project we hope to do on the Slocan Valley Rail Trail. Click on this link to the Community Initiative Program of the Columbia Basin Trust and follow the instructions. The Community Engagement period is from March 29th to April 9th. This means you can offer your thoughts on the applications.
This year, we’re looking for funding to help us once again remove trees that are starting to encroach along the Rail Trail. It’s a process we go through every several years. We need to do this to allow snow to reach the tread surface of the Trail and not be blockout by the bows on coniferous trees. This helps us to groom and trackset the Trail for the winter months – a period which many of us enjoy.
You’ll find our application primarily in Area H, but we are asking for help from the surrounding RDCK Area’s E, I & F as well. All the applications are listed alphabetically, so you’ll have to scroll down a long way to find it. Please take the time to help us, thanks.
You’ll find many worthy groups looking for funding support for some great ideas. Take the time to offer your thoughts on as many of these applications as you wish. You can find a link to this program through the RDCK website
