Submitted by Brian Eccles, Ministry of Forests–Ground now has been broken on the extreme makeover of Moresby Camp. Heavy equipment is moving and depositing large boulders and back fill material around the old camp in preparation for creation of the new campsite and day use facility. Ministry of Tourism Sports and Arts (MOTSA) along with the Ministry of Forests and Range were onsite Monday to witness the start of operations. MOTSA has a put up $150,000 to get the project off the ground and see the development of a day use area, wheel chair accessible toilet and a expanded campsite overlooking the old camp and foreshore. The project is also waiting of funding contributions from Canada Parks and the Moresby Island Management Committee that will see the site developed to its full potential. That will include a new boat ramp and parking facility. In total, with full contributions from all stakeholders, close to $500,000 dollars will be directed at this project.Anyone one using the Moresby Camp area for the next few months is asked to drive carefully in and around the site and follow directions of the on site staff or direction signs. Please park only in designated areas only so as not to impede the heavy equipment now working on this project. Your patience is appreciated.
