Trail talks on route

Two municipalities will work closely with the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Trails Society.

The City of Armstrong will join the Township of Spallumcheen in working closely with the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Trails Society.

The society expressed interest earlier this year in meeting with staff from both municipalities to review the current trails master plan, and to meet regularly, on a monthly basis, to discuss further trail development.

The request was for two hours per month of staff time.

“Greenspace planning and development requires infrastructure planning and budgeting,” said Armstrong chief administrative officer Melinda Stickney.

“Future trail corridors in the city are most often linked to opportunities which may arise in conjunction with acquiring lands as part of development approvals.

“Staff look forward to working with the society as a valuable resource to bring council’s vision for greenspace in the community to life.”

Council supported four staff recommendations which included appointing a liaison (Coun. Paul Britton) to attend society meetings, and freeing up two hours of staff time to review the current plans in the official community plan with the society.
