TRAIL, B.C. — Funding has been secured to retrofit the Trail Memorial Centre’s library to support local recreational needs.
According to the province, the 72-year-old Trail Memorial Centre is an important community hub in the downtown area, providing diverse recreational programming to local residents. The library’s renovation will provide more space for community and fitness programming and support Trail’s vision for a revitalized downtown.
The Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia will contribute $672,000 through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program’s new COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream. Canada is contributing $537,600, and B.C. is contributing $134,400.
“The City of Trail is very grateful to receive provincial and federal grant funding to help complete the new multi-purpose space in the Trail Memorial Centre,” said Trail Mayor Lisa Pasin in a statement. “Since the onset of the pandemic, we have seen an increased demand for larger indoor gathering areas and we are excited to offer our community enhanced services inside our largest recreational facility.”
