Seawalk project looking for new enthusiasm

  • Jul. 26, 2004 10:00 a.m.

Two Queen Charlotte residents are determined to see a seawalk built in the community.
Regional director Carol Kulesha told the local management committee she met with John Farrell and Dean Nomura to discuss ways to revive the project after the community’s bid for funding got quashed last winter.
The management committee has been trying to get funds for a seawalk, which would run from Meegan’s store to the community hall, since the mid-90s. The Softwood Industry Community Economic Adjustment Initiative recently declined the project because it would not create any long-term jobs after construction finished.
The two men want to create a public space for the community to congregate, said Ms Kulesha, with space for artisans to sell their work. They hope to generate new enthusiasm for the project and build partnerships with the art community.
