The District of Sparwood and BC Hydro have commenced work on a beautification project that will relocate overhead power cables underground in order to improve the aesthetics along Aspen Drive in the community’s downtown area.

Commenting on the initiative, Mayor Halko said, “This is the first of two such beautification projects which will enhance the look and feel of our downtown area as well as improve the routing of power to certain areas and businesses in the downtown core. We are pleased to have had the support of BC Hydro through their beautification grant that has helped to fund the initiative.”

The $350,000 project follows the recent announcement of a range of significant investments in Sparwood and is a constituent part of a number of infrastructure projects that will help facilitate further investment in the community.
