City Council to support IMAGINE grant application

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Council will be supporting an application for the IMAGINE grant for Fort St. John.

Council voted that the Mayor and the Director of Legislative and Administrative Services submit an application for Northern Health’s IMAGINE Community Grant funding in the amount of $5,000.00 in support of the City of Fort St John’s Winter Activity Planning Initiatives.

Council will also provide a letter of support.

The City outlined what they would do with the funds if awarded a grant.

“If awarded Imagine Grant funding, goals are to bolster winter programming such outdoor rink activities, snowshoeing, X-country skiing, nature walks, and community participation at the High On Ice winter festival. Funds will enable the City to offer low cost or free activities and encourage residents to get outside and be physically active.”

They added that Fort St. John experiences winter conditions for 6+ months a year, making the need for more physical activity accessible.
