HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. – A park design has been drawn up for the Light Industrial Subdivision in Hudson’s Hope.

The district announced the design completion for phase one of the work on Thursday.

The district and Northern Development Initiative Trust signed an agreement for the detailed design of the three phase subdivision in 2019.

According to a report to council on January 24th, 2022, designs are finished for the first two phases of the subdivision. The district has received conditional approval of the subdivision and detailed design from the Ministry of
Transportation and Infrastructure.

The 18.2-hectare subdivision is located west of Highway 29, just north of the town centre.

Phase one and two are located between the public works shop and the Powel Road, and phase three is to the north side of the road, the report said.

The subdivision will feature 11 fully serviced lots, each approximately 1 hectare in size. The lots will be serviced with water, power, natural gas, telephone and high-speed internet.

The overall cost of the project is $180,000 with $36,000, or 20 per cent, coming from the district and the remaining amount coming from a Strategic Initiatives Fund grant through NDIT.
