The City of Armstrong is currently working with B.C. Transit on a couple of requests to consider bus stop relocations.
Transit staff requested the stop on Patterson Avenue, across from the Kindale Developmental Association, be relocated to Okanagan Street, in front of Nelson’s Glass.
“A temporary bus stop sign has been installed at the new location for a trial period to ensure a stop at this location will not create any issues before a permanent sign is installed,” said city public works manager Tim Perepolkin.
The City of Armstrong unanimously granted a request for support from the Royal Canadian Legion which is seeking grant funding.
The legion wants to be an active participant in the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.
“Our involvement would be centred around a theatre production focusing on the 150 years since confederation, depicting memorable events in each decade,” wrote legion president Ron Waterman.
Prominent pioneers, war heroes and the history of Armstrong and Spallumcheen will also be represented.
The legion is soliciting the help of Christine Pilgrim, professional playwright, historian and comedian for the production.
Pilgrim produced and acted in the performance Bless ‘Em All for Armstrong’s 100th anniversary in 2013.
Building cooled in Armstrong in November.
One residential and one commercial permit worth a combined $225,000 were issued in the month.
That’s down from four permits worth $1.2 million in the same month in 2014.
However, it’s been a big building year in Armstrong.
Through November, 69 permits worth nearly $10.5 million have been issues, compared to 36 worth $5.7 million in 2014.
