Taghum Blewett Boat Launch Feasibility Study focus of meeting on Monday

The RDCK is looking for public input when it comes to the Taghum Blewett Boat Launch Feasibility Study. 

Area F Director Tom Newell says it's been on the radar for quite some time, since the informal boat launch was closed by the landowner.

A loss of access to put a boat into that part of the Kootenay River was a blow to some residents.

They're looking for feedback on narrowed down sites, and he'd like to have a conversation about costing.

They've been looking to develop a solution that would accommodate the local community and be accessible to both motorized and non-motorized boaters, so they're hoping to hear from a cross section of the communities.

The meeting's Monday from 6-8 at Blewett Elementary School.
