The new streetscape along the west end of Esplanade was made possible with Resort Municipality Initiative funds

Improvements thanks to overnight stays

Harrison streetscape changes possible with RMI funding

Congratulations to the Village of Harrison Hot Springs for doing such a terrific job on the ‘renovation’ of Esplanade Avenue, it looks terrific! The Province of British Columbia’s Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) is a funding mechanism which the village of Harrison Hot Springs is utilizing as one of a handful of designated B.C. resort municipalities.

A tax on accommodation in the villages hotels, motels and one B&B provides funding for Tourism Harrison and as per the RMI – matching funds for tourism related infrastructure development.

This project is an excellent example of how overnight visitors to the village can pay for improvements that result in a more attractive and livable community and for the enjoyment of all. Well done!
