Downtown Revitalization Year 1

Recipient: District of Vanderhoof
Amount: 125000
Date: 2001-03-21
Areas: Vanderhoof
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: This project was identified as one of the priorities for development during a community priority-setting event in 1999. Spearheaded by a volunteer group (Vanderhoof Revitalization Committee) under the auspices of the District of Vanderhoof, the downtown revitalization project has made dramatic improvements to the business environment of the downtown core. Funding partners to date include the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and the District of Vanderhoof. One of the immediate outcomes of this project has been that several of the neighbouring businesses have upgraded their own properties to tie in with the improvements. This ambitious project was the first multi-year commitment made by NKDF.

Well, this success story throws back a little bit. We started planning for the expansion at the Burns Lake Public Library in the early 2000's. It was an ambitious project - double the size of the library!! The board...
