Agassiz Harrison Observer

Harrison Hot Springs signed up for CIB

Harrison Hot Springs is once again planning to participate in the National Communities in Bloom competition.

Council approved the registration in the annual program, which celebrates initiatives to improve communities across Canada. This year's convention will be held in Ottawa. Harrison Hot Springs is one of several communities featured in the promotional material for CIB, being a past winner for Sustainable Development.

The program sends judges to each participating community, where they are looking for elements such as tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape, turf and ground covers, floral displays and community involvement.

Councillor Zoltan Kiss voted against approving registration this year, citing concerns that "it costs money."

Councillor Allan Jackson, who has worked with CIB Harrison in the past, was not at Monday's meeting.
