Changes to Harrison enjoyed by many

'We know it's been an ongoing effort that has taken years to accomplish.'

My husband and I were in Harrison Hot Springs on Monday evening (June 9) to see the newly upgraded sidewalks near the Harrison Resort.  What a great idea to incorporate seating into the plan.

At the open plaza, we had the pleasure of speaking with visitors from Georgia.  They were most impressed with Harrison and commented on it’s beauty and planning.  What they didn’t know was the  effort of yourself and council to accomplish required changes to your infrastructure and the applications for grants to achieve such a pleasant balance of features.  We know it’s been an ongoing effort that has taken years to accomplish.  We feel your efforts are rewarded not only in the compliments you receive but also in the higher property valuations of the community as a whole.  The spirit of the commercial enterprises is reflected in the refreshingly new and vivid colour schemes around town.

We are pleased to pass on praise of Harrison to you and those who have worked so hard to make Harrison such a place of welcome.

Lloyd and Carol Curry
