Highlights from the latest Radium council meeting

Highlights from the latest Radium council meeting on Wednesday, September 24th


A motion for a lot on Bighorn Boulevard to have its land use designation changed from “resort” to “multiple family residential”  sparked concern about increased traffic on Jackson Avenue from councillor Karen Larsen, but the developer was in attendance and explained there would be no issue. The motion passed unanimously.

A $500 grant for an application for support with the Bighorn Sheep Mitigation Plan was rejected.

This was due to a financial technicality and lack of trained staff. Chief executive officer Mark Read said that the village will reapply.

Council unanimously approved a motion to support the KSCU Phantom Golf Tournament, which will see funds raised between $500 and $1,000.

Council expressed its pleasure for the nice weather and large turnout at the Classic Car Show and Shine.
