District gets $1.2 million for downtown revitalization
The District of Invermere this afternoon announced that it has successfully received two significant grants that will fund continued Downtown Revitalization efforts in the town.
The funding received is from two sources, Columbia Basin Trust – $500,000; and the Province of British Columbia- $700,000, as part of the Tourism Dependent Communities Initiative program which Invermere qualifies under.
“Invermere’s downtown revitalization has been an ongoing initiative which to date has included Pothole Park, 7th Avenue approach from Pothole Park to the commercial core and the Cenotaph plaza upgrades. This new development phase will extend the refresh of 7th Avenue from the AG Foods / Inside Edge intersection to Cenotaph Park, (12th Street),” the district outlined on its website.
