This is a relatively inexpensive budget request which has a high visibility factor with the community. I trust that funds will be available from this years budget to build the sign especially in light of the fact that the project is already in progress. As stated the community is willing to participate to help mitigate costs. The primary requirement we have of the district is to make the sign and provide materials for a structure.

I am in the process of getting a second estimate for the cedar sign to see if we can do better than the previous quoted amount of $3250. We will continue proceeding on the assumption that you can find a way to fund this.

Good morning, Bill,

As we discussed on Friday, I followed up with Irwin and Robyn Newton regarding sign funding possibilities.  As I had advised, we have lost the window for using last year's budget.  If you decide to proceed with resources in the neighbourhood in the coming year, you could still approach Robyn Newton, who administers the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund. She would require a detailed, costed-out project proposal to assess. Robyn can be reached at 990-2274.  If you require any further information, please let me know.
