Council Briefs: Tourism and trampolines discussed

The Village of Radium Hot Springs held a council meeting and discussed their role on the Columbia Valley Tourism Marketing Committee

The Village of Radium Hot Springs held a regular council meeting on Wednesday, March 11th, and discussed their role on the Columbia Valley Tourism Marketing Committee and Glacier Peaks Gymnastics’ occupancy of a public space.

Councillor Ron Verboom led the meeting in the absence of mayor Clara Reinhardt.

The Columbia Valley Tourism Marketing Committee invited a representative from Radium to sit at the table for the discussion of a valley-wide signage proposal.

Chief administrative officer Mark Read volunteered for the role, and said that some important signage is absent in certain parts of the valley.

“The intent was to have better signage in the village so that people can become aware and perhaps see some mapping to know how to get to backcountry trails,” he said.

Glacier Peaks Gymnastic Centre Inc., a not-for-profit organization, requested that leasing fees for their trampoline room be waived over July and August, as the facility will be collecting little to no revenue from its Radium location.

Read mentioned how the building didn’t garner much attention the last time it was offered for rent and that the same favour has been extended to Glacier Peaks before.

Glacier Peaks are “anchor tenants who provide nice recreational activities,” said Read.

“We haven’t had people banging at the door anyway,” Verboom said.

A motion to waive the fees over the summer months passed unanimously.

The next regular meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 25th.
