Description: This increases the previously approved grant to a total of $180,000 for this project. Restoring the historic wharf on Fraser Lake has been a high priority for the community for many years and fits in with the larger waterfront development plan. The completed wharf is expected to attract new private investment to the waterfront. NKDF directors were impressed by the strong community support and long term planning behind this project, but required that an engineering study be completed first to make sure the old pilings were usable. After a series of delays, the project finally got underway in the spring of 2005, with the pilings installed by the end of March. Funding partners include the Softwood Industry Community Economic Adjustment Initiative (SICEAI) and the Village of Fraser Lake.
