City Council hears report on renovations around the community

Cornerstone Planning Group found the woman’s locker room in the RCMP Detachment was undersized and transportation between the buildings is not secure, needing renovation for increased staff.

“The RCMP to me is one the priorities that we need to look at,” Councillor Byron Stewart said. “With the growth of our community and safety of our community high in mind, that building has been stretched to the max.”


There are also recommendations to combine the Grounds and Community Services Facility with the old Fire Hall and renovations at the Public Works operation.

Cornerstone says they’ve observed a need for slight maintenance over a long period of time around the New Fire Hall and the Pomeroy Sports Centre.

Fort St. John is expected to see a population growth of 27,491 over the next 20 years.
