Sicamous-to-Armstrong Rail Trail planning proceeds with public information displays, agricultural meetings
The Shuswap – North Okanagan, Splatsin Secwepemc First Nation Territory, British Columbia – Planning is well underway for the Shuswap-North Okanagan Rail Trail between Sicamous and Armstrong. Citizens throughout the Shuswap and North Okanagan are invited to learn more about the project through a series of public information sessions, a dedicated information website at, and special meetings for agricultural landowners.
Rail Trail technical leadership are looking forward to meeting and hearing from people. Public information drop-by displays are scheduled for:
  • Nov 29, 10 am to 2 pm, Enderby Indoor Farmers’ Market, Splatsin Community Centre
  • Dec 9, 5-8 pm, Shuswap Lake Estates Community Centre, 2405 Centennial, Blind Bay
  • Dec 11, 5-8 pm, Sicamous & District Recreation Centre meeting room, 1121 Eagle Pass Way, Sicamous
  • Dec 16, 5-8 pm, Oddfellows Hall, 3005 Wood Avenue, Armstrong.
A special meeting for Splatsin community members is also being scheduled.
As well, special meetings have been scheduled for Landowners in the Agricultural Land Reserve, adjacent to the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail Trail on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from 6 pm to 8 pm at Armstrong Seniors Activity Centre (2520 Patterson Avenue, Armstrong), and Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 2 pm to 4 pm at Enderby Drill Hall (208 George Street, Highway 97A, Enderby).
The purpose of the agricultural information meetings is to discuss the non-farm use application to the ALC for a recreational trail within the Agricultural Land Reserve. An informal presentation of the application will begin the meetings. Following the presentation, representatives will be available to field questions or concerns related to the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail Trail ALC application.
While the rail trail is for non-motorized use, residents can expect to see project personnel travelling the corridor by foot or vehicle during their investigations. Temporary ½ kilometre markers have been installed to aid planning consultants.
The Rail Trail partners gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia. A grant through the BC Rural Dividend Program was secured last year leveraging contributions by the CSRD Area E and District of Sicamous Economic Initiatives fund.
