Centennial building addition in Nakusp open for public viewing
The plan, budget and schedule for the Centennial building addition will be presented to Nakusp Village council on Oct. 11 for formal approval of project commencement.
This two-storey building — a project by the Arrow Lakes Historical Society (ALHS) — will house an archives office on the top floor and storage for all on the bottom floor with a native interpretive centre for the Museum. The main entrance will be a wheelchair accessible door.
Each floor will have a lobby and a lift to the library and the archives office for the elderly, handicapped and wheelchair accessible patrons. In addition, there will be a wheelchair accessible washroom on the top floor.
The ALHS will be finalizing a contract with Lonestar Construction to start work this fall.
The ALHS has a large portion of their funding through grants, in-kind donations and monetary donations, and more grants have been applied for. Despite this, the ALHS will need more funds to completely finish this building. Using the financial thermometer placed on the Kootenay Savings Credit Union building, it is hoped that the community will support this worthwhile project.
