The following are additional highlights from the Harrison Hot Springs Village Council meeting on Monday, Aug. 8:
– The Council approved writing a letter of support on behalf of Agassiz-Harrison Community Services as they apply for a $25,000 grant from United Way British Columbia. This would specifically be fore emergency preparedness and response. The letter of support would, in part, enhance the grant application by indicating community support.
– Council received a letter from the Harrison Windsport Society, asking for collaboration between the District of Kent and the village to expand amenities for windsurfers, kiteboarders and wingers who use Harrison Lake. A letter from Harrison Windsport Society’s secretary/treasurer Rhonda Davidson said these particular water sports are on the decline in recent years and the group is asking to look in to a viewing area, multipurpose trail and an improved launchpad for participants.
Venues for wind sports are few and far between in the Lower Mainland aside from Squamish. Davidson said expanding services for participants would draw in more visitors.
