LAND NEAR PROPOSED SPRINGBANK CONNECTOR NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Written by Mike
The City of Merritt Development Services Officer says before a Springbank-Grimmett Connector can be done, there has to be some archaeological assessments conducted.
Sean O'Flaherty says the land being crossed near the site of the former Grasslands Hotel has a significant Native history.
Depending on the finds after the study, O'Flaherty says it would basically mean a different level of application with the BC Government will have to be made before the project to link Springbank to Grimmett will be able to proceed.
