City Council to provide Letter of Support towards Prince Rupert Golf Club quest for funding for course reconstruction work

The City of Prince Rupert will be supporting the Prince Rupert Golf Club as it navigates the world of funding applications, with the City to provide a letter of Support coming out of their Monday session. 

The request was part of the Consent Agenda on the evening, the item one of a number to be approved without discussion as part of the Council Session.

The request from the Golf Course was included in the Agenda for the night, with a  correspondence from Iain Cullen outlining the path ahead for the Club on their funding quest.

In it the Club notes the following: 

The funding request is for $200 000 towards the PRGC's Revitalization and Accessibility Project. 

Project activities include the reconstruction of a green, rebuilding the cart paths, renovation of the forward tee boxes and ten sand traps. 

The PRGC has received a PRPA Community Investment Fund grant for $459 750 and requires leveraged funding to release the PRPA contribution. 

The PRGC is committing the other funds with the understanding that the Club's contribution may be reduced by securing other funding. 

The PRGC is actively seeking more funding for this project and to expand the Revitalization Project to include other enhancements.

Also included in the letter were some notes on the arrangement with the city towards the course and the importance of their revitalization plan.

The PRGC has an operating agreement with the City of Prince Rupert to operate, maintain and enhance the golf course as part of the City's Recreation Services. The revitalization of the golf course is an important project.

The letter of support is directed towards the  work of the Prince Rupert Golf Clubs which is seeking additional funding through the Northern Development Initiative Trust.

More notes on the latest items of interest from the Golf Club can be reviewed through their Social Media Stream.
