Southside Highway 16 Billboard
Areas: Burns Lake and Southside
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: Southside Economic Development Association (SEDA) plans to construct and erect a Highway 16 Billboard with the sign portion to be 10 feet by 20 feet and framed by logs salvaged from the shores of Ootsa Lake. Attached to the log will be a wood carving of a bear on one side corner. Southside residents in favour of promoting tourism often cite lack of visibility on Highway 16 as a barrier to attracting more tourists to the Southside. This project is a step toward increasing tourist awareness of Southside assets and beauty. Private property has been donated for placement of this sign approximately 8 KM. west of Burns Lake on the north side of Highway 16.
