“Fort Nelson’s Community Trail sustains the region’s social and environmental health; it is a recreational beacon that is free of charge and open year round,” Mayor Bill Streeper said in a written statement. “This accessibility extension project links the trail to sidewalks and provides parking to open it up to even more residents, especially those who have small children or mobility issues.”

In the Economic Action Plan 2012, the federal government announced further support to help communities across the country modernize their infrastructure, a commitment of $150 million over two years.

The Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund supports projects aimed to improve existing community infrastructure accessible for use by the public, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arena, and cultural facilities, according to the office of MP for Prince George – Peace River, Bob Zimmer.

“I am pleased to announce the Government of Canada’s support for the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality,” MP Zimmer said in a written statement. “Infrastructure such as the Fort Nelson Community Trail increases community spirit, and provides a lasting legacy for northern B.C. communities.”

The Fort Nelson Community Trail is used for activities such as walking, jogging, cycling, rollerblading, bird watching, and wildlife viewing.
