Please join the City and Northwest Hydraulic Consultants for a presentation on the findings of the Flood Mitigation Plan, as well as collect feedback for incorporation into the draft report.

The City of Fernie hired a consultant to prepare a Flood Mitigation Plan for the City. The project was funded by the Provincial Government through the Emergency Management BC program. The project included an assessment of the existing dikes and development of prioritized future projects to mitigate the flood hazard.

The City of Fernie received an application to rezone the Lutheran Church from Public Institutional to Residential and planners were faced with the challenge of how to preserve the value of a heritage building, and perhaps more importantly, create a framework that would ensure the Lutheran Church would not be demolished.

Throughout the election this past October, we got to learn more about each candidate. But there was still so much we wanted to learn about the young man who stood up to take on an important role in our community.

As winter white begins to fall many communities take on a slower pace, settling into a schedule based around shorter days, colder weather, homework, and planning for the festive season. All of these things happen in Fernie but it’s far from a quiet time.

More than just any other industry, tourism requires collaboration and partnering locally with residents, businesses, user groups and organisations, as well as with regional and provincial organisations. Done right, tourism can bring many benefits to communities; doing it right requires proactive planning and ongoing governance for community success.
