City of Greenwood applies for Rural Dividend grant

The City of Greenwood is submitting a grant application to the BC Rural Dividend Program this week.

At last month’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention, Mayor Ed Smith, Councillor Gerry Shaw, CAO Wendy Higashi, and a representative from MLA Linda Larson’s office met with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resource Operations – Heritage Division, to discuss the BC Copper Company smelter ruins.

Richard Lindzey, from the Heritage Division discussed grant possibilities for the site.

The City of Greenwood is submitting a grant application to the BC Rural Dividend Program this week. Phase one of the project will focus on the smokestack and the flue. A structural engineering company and a mason will evaluate the smokestack and flue for deterioration and the cost to stabilize, preserve and create a safe environment for visitors. The engineering company will also create a blueprint of the ruin. The goal is to make the BC Copper Company smelter ruins a tourist destination.
