Wednesday, March 8, 2017 @ 5:52 AM

Valemount, B.C. – The Village of Valemount has received a $35,000 grant from the provincial government.

It will be used to help pay for a study of the impact of a municipal boundary extension that would include the proposed Valemount Glacier Destination Resort.

The cost of the study is being shared by the Province ($35,000) and the Village of Valemount ($20,000).

The grant will allow municipal officials with the Village of Valemount and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George to study both the benefits and challenges faced in extending the boundary.

The proposed year-round resort would include ski lifts, residential development and a hotel just west of the village. The resort proponent – Valemount Glacier Destination Ltd. – requires an approved master development agreement with the Province before the project can proceed.

The study will focus only on how a change in Valemount’s boundary would impact local residents and taxpayers, as well as the local governance, services and planning regulation provided by the village.
