“The province welcomes the opportunity to support planning in the City of Revelstoke,” said Selina Robinson, minister, in the letter. “We believe that early and ongoing planning is the best way to ensure that the environmental, social, and economic needs of your community will continue to be met in the years ahead.”

Details and conditions attached to the grant will be dealt with in an agreement that will be passed on by ministry staff as soon as possible, the letter said.

Upon the completion of the plan the city will be able to more accurately predict what upgrades are needed to the liquid waste management system and better predict how much those upgrades will cost, according to a committee of the whole report from last summer.
