At the January 16, 2019 regular Council meeting of the District of Sechelt, Councilors approved our recommendations for seven Legacy Fund grants.
Gibsons Marine Rescue Society – $80,000 to construct a new boathouse in which to park the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue boat.
Gibsons Public Market – $35,000 to install a solar array which will reduce the use and cost of hydro electric power for the Marine Education Cen
Sechelt Seniors Activity Centre – $100,000 for major renovations to add a dining room and upgrade the kitchen facilities.
Sunshine Coast Salmonid Enhancement Society – $30,500 to conduct hydrologic and well assessments in order to have their wells approved for use rather than taking water from Chapman Lake to feed the hatchery.
Syiyaya Reconciliation Movement – $10,000 to complete their totem carving project.
Sunshine Coast Baseball Association – $20,000 to install a new batting cage at Brothers Park.
Sunshine Coast Fastball League – $50,000 to upgrade Hackett Park with improved backstops and fencing.
All of these projects will provide lasting benefits to the communities of the Sunshine Coast.
