Lax Kw'alaams takes action on derelict buildings

While Prince Rupert continues to try to find a way to address the growing concerns related to derelict buildings through the downtown core, there's a bit of urban renewal taking place past the north end of Tuck Inlet.

With the Lax Kw'alaams Band Council beginning the process of preparing its community for the future by taking a proactive approach to development.

The sound of heavy machinery lumbering through Lax Kw'alaams has been heard through the last few weeks, as the Band takes action on a number of derelict buildings in the community.

The Lax Kw'alaams Council was responding to community concerns about the nature of the buildings and how they had become an eyesore, the demolition project allows for the prospect of future development for the area and reduces potentially dangerous situations from the abandoned structures.

In addition to the photo below from the Lax Kw'alaams Band Facebook page, they have also posted a video of some of the work that has taken place to this point of the project schedule.

You can check out some of the work here.
