Revelstoke city council asked staff to look into several recommendations from the city's enhancement committee.

Council asked staff to look into several recommendations from the city’s enhancement committee.

The committee sent a series of recommendations to council:

— To upgrade and expand the washrooms in Grizzly Plaza;

— Consider installing electronic signs on the Trans-Canada Highway to promote events in Revelstoke;

— To upgrade the heritage kiosks;

— To upgrade the lighting in the Grizzly Plaza bandshell.

Councillors spoke in support of each iniative and sent the requests to staff in order to get more information, including costs, for each item.

“This is great work by the enhancement committee to bring forward these proposals because I think they’re great opportunities for the city to enhance economic development,” said coun. Connie Brothers.

Council also asked the items be forwarded to the tourism infrastructure committee so they can be included in the resort development strategy.

Council also asked that the owner of the building that features the Riverboat Mural on First Street West be ordered to maintain the building.
