District of Sparwood reflects on 2019

There were many highlights in 2019. At the beginning of the year we hired a new CAO and shortly thereafter hired a new CFO. We moved forward with plans to revitalize Centennial Square and plans for that will be unveiled at the December 17th 2019 council meeting.

We will be again looking for the public’s input as we move forward. We also started our Recreation Master Plan which will come back to council in February 2020. Working with a group of locals we were able to establish the off leash dog park located behind the old Mountain View School. We were able to modify the Master Development Agreement with Whiskey Jack Resort to allow them to move forward with further residential development.

Mayor and council look forward to engaging with the public on the Centennial Square revitalization project and moving forward with the Recreation Master Plan. We are excited to expand our trail system in coordination with the Sparwood Trails Alliance. We will continue to work with Teck to see a new administrative building in Middletown Place.

Mayor and council would like to extend our best wishes to all the residents of Sparwood in having a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2020.

We would also like to thank everyone for their continued input as Sparwood moves forward.
