Submitted. The B.C. Government is providing development funding that will assist the District of Mission with road engineering and design work aimed at infrastructure improvements along Florence Lake Forest Service Road and creating a master plan for the Mission Interpretive Forests.
The provincial government is providing $32,500 for the design plans for road upgrades and $40,000 for the development of the District of Mission’s Recreational Master Plan for the Mission Interpretative Forest.
The planning will focus on improving the development of the Mission Interpretive Forest including the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation camp proposed at Pine Lake.
“I’m pleased to see our government supporting recreational planning opportunities in our area through the Mission Interpretive Forests and the proposed Tim Horton Children’s Foundation camp,” said Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton.
The District of Mission will match the total funding provided by the province with $32,500 in cash for the road design plan. The District will also provide $40,000 in cash and $30,000 in kind for the municipality’s Recreational Master Plan for the Mission Interpretive Forest.
“A sign of a liveable city is the strength of its partnerships,” said Mission Mayor Ted Adlem. “Developing Stave West is extremely important to the District of Mission, but the vision will only be possible through our strong partnerships with stakeholders, user groups, the community and the Province of British Columbia. We are very grateful for the ongoing support from the Province to move this project forward on a path toward success.”
