Nipissing will be seeing nearly $800 000 thousand dollars invested through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.
The money will go to four enhancement projects to improve municipal and recreational infrastructure.
That’s according to Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, who says his government is committed to revitalizing community infrastructure in the riding.
Over $100,000 is coming to the Near North Trail Association for trail improvements.
NOHFC Funding breakdown is as follows:
- $373,000 for the Municipality of East Ferris to create a seven km hardtop bicycle and walking path that will link MacPherson Drive to the Voyageur Route and the Corbeil Recreation Hub.
- $180,000 for the Municipality of Callander to build a washroom and shower facility available year-round at the municipal marina.
- $135,000 for the Township of Mattawan to renovate the community hall
- $105,000 for the Near North Trail Association to carry out four trail infrastructure improvements.
“OFSC District 11 welcomes this funding from the NOHFC to complete four important infrastructure and trail rehabilitation projects. These improvements will enhance the safety and maintain the connectivity of the area’s snowmobile trails. On behalf of the dedicated volunteers of the North Bay Snowmobilers Club, the West Nipissing Snowmobile Club, the South Shore Restoule Snowmobile Club and the Mattawa and Area Snowmobile Club, I thank the provincial government for ensuring snowmobiling remains the largest contributor to our local winter economy.” – John Miler, President/Governor, Near North Trail Association/ OFSC District 11.
