Enderby looks to extend Riverwalk

On Monday, city council adopted the Enderby-Splatsin Riverwalk extension and enhancement plan.

A vision for expanded recreational opportunities is on track in Enderby.

On Monday, city council adopted the Enderby-Splatsin Riverwalk extension and enhancement plan.

“We have all of the details now, the costs, everything,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

“Now we need to work with the Splatsin and determine how to fund it.”

It’s expected that senior government grants, as well as other sources, will be sought.

Trail construction will cost about $254,290 while lighting could bring the total to $840,000.

The plan would see the project go from the existing Riverwalk along the Shuswap River into Splatsin lands to the south.

“The current Riverwalk is popular and it would be great to double it,” said McCune.

“It’s more than a Riverwalk. It connects our two communities and will allow for safer access. Tourism will also be a big part of this.”

In a related matter, the city has approved the 2016-2019 operational contribution agreement with the Shuswap Trail Alliance.

The city and Area F of the Regional District of North Okanagan will contribute $10,000 a year for trail-related activities.

“They (society) are doing an incredible job for our region,” said McCune.
