CITY WORKERS erected a noticeboard at the mini-park now under development on the corner of Emerson and Lakelse July 22.

Built thanks to the Northwest Community College’s timber framing program, the noticeboard will contain a map outlining city walking trails and other information.

The mini-park is the brainchild of the Terrace Beautification Society which has organized donations and groups of volunteers providing material and labour.

Planters were placed at the site last year and this year a brick pathway is being laid down.

The location belongs to Imperial Oil which fenced off what the property after demolishing a service station that had been on the site for years. That resulted in a weed-infested eyesore right downtown, prompting an effort to convert it into something useable.

The company is letting the beautification society use the space until it sells it or comes up with another use.
