The White Valley Community Centre in Lumby will be upgraded with $69,915 coming from the province.
The Corporation of the Village of Lumby found out about the funding from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund Nov. 14 and will use the money to upgrade the Centre's lighting and for roof repairs.
"The White Valley Community Centre is a key recreation destination in Lumby and the surrounding White Valley area, and it is our recreation facilities that are paramount to maintaining health and the high quality of living in our community," said Village of Lumby Mayor, Kevin Acton. "Maintaining these assets can be challenging with a smaller population, so we really appreciate funding opportunities such as the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund."
CIIF supports, on a cost-shared basis, repairs and improvements to existing community infrastructure accessible to the public. Western Economic Diversification Canada is delivering the Fund in Western Canada with an allocation of $46.2 million over two years.
