Rotary looks to share in the work on planning for Pacific Mariner's Park

Prince Rupert's Rotarians are looking to become partners with the City of Prince Rupert and Tourism Prince Rupert when it comes to some of the plans for a refresh of Pacific Mariners Park overlooking the harbour.

In a Correspondence for Council to consider tonight, the Rotarians note that they have recently received an Estate donation of 100,000 dollars which they would like to put to use towards the construction of a Bandshell for the public Space on First Avenue East adjacent to Cow Bay.

Rotary is looking for a commitment from the City in principle before they move forward on the planning for their initiative, noting in their information sheet for Council that they have been in discussion with Tourism Prince Rupert since last year toward the plans

Should the Rotarians receive the go ahead for their Bandshell project once it was completed they would expect the City to become the legal owners of the structure, with the Rotarians in discussion with the Prince Rupert Special Events Society over the management of it.

The full letter and an image of a concept for the structure are included in the Agenda package for tonight.

City Staff and Tourism Prince Rupert updated the vision for the public space last summer with a report presented to City Council to explore the refresh for the popular community gathering space.

Some of the early discussion towards the proposed rejuvenation for Mariner's Park came in November of 2022.

City Staff and Tourism Prince Rupert hosted workshops and survey's of the community through 2023 to explore the project planning further .
