Project background

The City of Revelstoke applied for a grant under the Community Outdoor Revitalization Capital Grant program that closed on February 5, 2021. To apply for the grant, a report was prepared by staff for Council’s consideration on January 26, 2021, which outlined the grant application and identified that the funding for this project would be covered by 75% from the CBT grant and 25% from the RCFC Legacy fund. The grant application process required a capital cost budget, which was based upon example projects provided by consultants to develop a capital cost budget. In this report, staff identified that a community engagement process was required to hear what the Community wishes for the future of the bandstand and surrounding area. On April 6, 2021, CBT awarded the city a grant for $322,050. No decisions have been or will be made, about the future or design of the bandstand or plaza until we have heard from the public.

Community engagement is the first step to collect thoughts about the values and vision for the bandstand and plaza, and ideas about potential uses, functionality, materials, and design.

This is an exciting opportunity for the community to collectively use its imagination to conceptualize the bandstand and the plaza while recognizing significant cultural features and the community’s historical significance about this important space.


About the project

The project is being funded by a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust Community Outdoor Revitalization Capital Grant program.
