Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Tourism-Recreational Infrastructure
Description: Village of Burns Lake plans to increase economic activity and participation at Spirit Square and the Tom Forsyth Arena by making improvements at each facility. Spirit Square and the Tom Forsyth Arena encompass an area with recreational opportunities for ice sports, water sports, skateboarding, curling, tennis, self-directed exercise, and free camping. For the Arena, the project includes the purchase of two regulation hockey nets and 9-foot dividers to replace the currently used 30 cm foam-dividers, which will allow two teams (ice or no ice) to play simultaneously thereby increasing capacity. Project also includes the purchase and installation of solar lighting at Spirit Square, which produces no greenhouse gases while increasing the operating hours and reducing the cost of lighting. As well, the proponent will purchase kayaks, canoes, and skateboards to rent to locals and tourists.
